Our 4 acre QUIET BEAUTIFUL country spot bordering a pristine BROOK; great to get-away with a total of only 2 sites on the land (“Wishbone Left and Right” marked). There are several new places where you can set up camp.

Please NOTE that the other side of the brook is PRIVATE and walking up river over 350 meters our River Frontage ends. Please do NOT go past the Bridge up river so our neighbors can have their PRIVACY. At the bottom of the driveway the road wishbones left and right. Back your vehicles in to the site on the left side about 100 yards down the driveway Or drive through before it levels out (it’s a loop). I suggest backing in trailers though if you go to the end of the driveway you can turn around and drive in on the way back. Our driveway ends at the abandoned house (closed up but that it gives Wifi to the Wishbone Right site).

There is plenty of room for an RV/ camper and tent sites. There is additional parking for more vehicles on this site too which you will see when you are there just above the site (upper portion of the loop). The “Wishbone Left” site is private from the other site on this property. Enjoy the music of the Brook. No running water in Winter though we can provide 5 gallon drinking water in portable container. 

In Winter we request only AWD vehicles go down to this site or you park up by entry and hike in so you can easily get out. WIFI near next site if you need for emergencies.

Great spot! 10 out of 10 will come back again. Bit pricy but other than that I loved it!

Thanks Tim… it will be even more beautiful this Fall so I hope you return then. I did take your advice, knowing this is one of our most popular sites, and reduce the price during the weekend and the week so more people can enjoy the space. Be WellandThrive! Roy

Teardrop camping with pooch

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Wishbone. Roy was super responsive providing all essential information needed for a comfortable stay. The site is down a steep dirt road and high above a river with great river sounds to relax by. Our dog loved exploring the area. Many ticks though, so come prepared with permethrin and picaridin sprays. We brought our teardrop camper towed with Subaru XT and had no issues getting in and out but not sure a longer rig could manage it easily. We are looking forward to another stay on Roy's land - maybe next time at his open field mountain view sites, which have fantastic views.

Roy was fantastic, very helpful with great recommendations. We stayed for 4 nights with our golden retriever, and despite some colder weather we all had a BLAST. Can't wait to return when it's warmer!
(p.s. everyone try the artichoke heart sandwich from The Works cafe in Brattleboro.)

Thank you… we just expanded your site so that mound of earth that was behind you is moved to fill in the project by the old house. Your site is now twice as big and we are seeding for new grass today. Be WellandThrive! Roy

We had a wonderful stay at Roy’s. The pictures don’t do the spot justice. We pulled up after dark and Roy had left adorable string lights on for us. Power and hose were obvious, so we didn’t have to go searching. Plenty of firewood was provided. His communication couldn’t have been better! The sound of the brook below was so amazing. Also, there were plenty of sweet towns to explore and beautiful drives to take in the area. We’ll definitely be coming back!

This was my third time camping at this site. It is a great spot tucked away near a beautiful creek with a great firepit and many spots for tents and hammocks. Also a few string lights for good measure! Roy is a great host and always happy to help provide what you need as well as recommendations for local hiking/mountain biking. Thank you! hope to come back again soon.

Awesome secluded spot. We had so much fun at the campsite and exploring nearby Brattleboro. Cell signal is spotty at best but it was great to be off our phones for a bit. The drop to the stream is pretty steep but it was fun to walk down and explore. Our first trip to Vermont want a success!
