This land has been in our family for a decade now. When our family purchased it, we had so many dreams for the large acreage, first of course building our home. We are avid year round outdoors people. Many weekends you can find us snow shoeing, hiking, biking and spending our evenings around a camp fire. Our family has spent weekends camping in tents or in the camper. Another big dream was to operate a maple sugaring production. We started our first year taping ten trees with spouts and buckets. We now tap a few thousand trees and use a modern pipeline system. Hobby farming keeps us busy every day We raise chickens for eggs and meat and rabbits, cats and dogs for pets. We grow and can vegetables in our large garden! Blackberries and raspberries grow wild and make use of the for syrups and jam during the year. Also, our apple trees and blueberry bushes give us pies through the year. The last two seasons we planted 2,500 Christmas trees and we have 1,400 more going into the ground in May. Sharing our dream and opening up our homestead to provide others with lots of memories, is fulfilling! We want families to experience all that nature can provide, and to create their own lasting memories!

The location and price were great! Less than 20min to the top of Smugglers Notch. While you're sharing an open hillside with other campers, the topography and distance between sites makes you feel nearly alone in a gorgeous VT landscape.

Great Camping Close to Smuggs
We loved tent camping on Dianne's land! Easy to find the site, and water and dry firewood was provided. Dianne checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Amazing location too, only 15-20 minutes away from Smuggs!

Dianne’s land was so serene! The views were absolutely incredible! Dianne was very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed even when we checked into our site pretty late. The toilet was well maintained and clean. I would definitely come here again!

Great stay. Open field with beautiful views. Campsites are far apart and the bathroom is very nice.

I loved tenting on Dianne’s land! The land was a perfect mixture of forest and meadow. The other camp sites were nearby but far enough away so it felt like there was privacy. There was a fire pit, bundle of wood and drinking water all provided with the option or many upgrades such as additional wood for purchase. We would definitely recommend this quiet and remote tenting site. So beautiful! Also, our dog couldn’t get enough of rolling around in the fresh grass.

Dianne's property is truly beautiful! Each site on the property is far enough apart that you barely noticed when anyone else is around. Dianne was responsive, flexible, and very welcoming :)

Beautiful view! Diane is a great host! You can have shower outside with hot water, with a small bathroom. No neighbour close to us.

Lovely Meadow in the Mountains
Dianne's land is a little oasis in an already beautiful part of Vermont. The meadow is expansive and rolling and even though there are a number of tent sites (and two tiny cabins), our spot at the top of the hill was secluded while still feeling open and airy and had incredible views all the way across to Smuggler's Notch. Dianne was kind enough to supply us with firewood and five gallons of drinking water, which was more than enough for our stay. After hanging in the meadow and doing some swimming at a nearby swimming hole in Jeffersonville, we had such a lovely time eating dinner by the fire until the stars came out and we had a clear view of the Milky Way. We opted for the pancake breakfast add-on and it definitely didn't disappoint! It even came with maple syrup produced right near the campsites - doesn't get more local than that!

Countryside Oasis
Amazing! Dianne goes above and beyond. The open field has amazing views from every site. I absolutely recommend getting the pancake breakfast—it was so delicious AND delivered to our site. The compost toilet is very clean. There is also an outdoor shower available. The stars can be seen wonderfully. Great communication. Can’t wait to stay again, maybe even at the cabin next time!

Awesome camp spot!
Dianne has beautiful property that is very close to Smugglers Notch! On arrival she greeted us and showed us the compost toilet and took us to our camp site for the few days. Dianne communicated very well and was helpful on giving suggestions on things to do in the area. We choose site 6 which was up on the other side of the hill on her property. It was seclusive and away from the other two couples that were staying there. The views of the mountains were great as well! The stars at night while sitting by the camp fire were outstanding!! I’m sure we will be visiting Vermont again in the future and we will for sure book with Dianne again!

The land was amazing! Each of the sites is pretty well separated from the others and ours (site 8) was tucked away behind a few trees to add additional privacy! Dianne was great, very responsive, and the breakfast (we ordered blueberry pancakes) was lovely.

Really great spot to camp, close to Stowe and all the great hiking in the area. Open field on a hill and, while I didn't have time to explore, there are trails on the land. The host family are wonderful people, happy to help where they can. The blueberry pancakes and eggs delivered to me in the AM was a nice touch. Highly recommend and would stay there again in a heartbeat

Dianne was very friendly and welcoming. There was no one else staying at any of the other sites at the time of our camping and they gave us the option of setting up at any location we wanted. The location was beautiful and has a full view of the sky.

camping gem outside Stowe
We had a wonderful stay at Black Creek's Tent Haven. Dianne was the perfect host and we ended up extending our stay to a second night because we loved the spot. Dianne greeted us when we arrived and it was very easy to coordinate with her during the stay. On the first night, we stayed in the cabin and it was a fun experience, complete with a loft bed, porch, and firepit with wood and kindling provided. The next morning we booked the breakfast add-on and were treated to a little picnic of blueberry pancakes and farm-fresh eggs. The second night we camped in a tent we pitched a site over and again had a great experience. The sky was more clear that night too so we were able to gaze at the stars. We hope to come back on our next visit to VT and highly recommend this place to other campers!

A beautiful, peaceful paradise
Black Creek Tent Haven is situated on a stunningly beautiful and peaceful hill, surrounded by every shade of green imaginable! The hillside is dotted with campsites but on our weekend we were the only ones there. Included are all the amenities you need for an off-the-grid experience (bathroom, water, fire ring and firewood). Our kids loved running up and down the hill, exploring the trail to the maple tree grove, and watching the fireflies at night. Diane is a fantastic host! She was very gracious with our arrival time, which kept getting delayed and personally met us to show us around the camp site. Overall, we had a great time and didn’t want to leave!

Very nice host and site. She set out a chair for me and plenty of firewood. She also provided water which are all things that I didn't expect.

Great property and host!!
Dianne was an amazing host and the land was perfect. Unreal views all around and my favorite part of the property was at night. Countless fireflies scattered the property and put on a light show you couldn’t imagine. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you Dianne!

Beautiful site, wonderful host!
We were lucky enough to be Dianne's first guests. the site was exactly what we needed. we had the whole place to ourselves, and it was incredibly generous of the host to set up a tent with a flushable portable toilet, as well as a fire pit and small table with water for washing and drinking! After traveling all week Dianne's property ended up being our favorite location AND the least expensive one. Paradise!
