Experience an authentic yet rustic and secluded glamping experience on a beautiful Farm Animal Sanctuary with horses, donkeys, sheep, goats and potbellied pigs grazing beneath you. A true animal lover's heaven on earth.

We named this The Lady Asha Yurt/Treehouse after a beautiful soul that we adopted from Longmeadow Rescue Ranch here in Franklin County in July of 2019 when we first decided to go for it and become an official sanctuary.  We adopted their 2 most elderly horses, Quincy and Lady Asha.  Quincy is still here with us and we think he is about 35.  Lady Asha was loved and spoiled by us for 14 months and we want our first glamping site to be in her honor and memory.

This site is an elevated platform amongst the trees with a 16 foot around by 10 foot tall bell tent. There is a full size futon with mattress and linens and pillows, and a queen size air mattress and 2 cots available as necessary. All linens are provided. The yurt is also furnished with a table, chairs and floor cushions for eating and game playing.

Situated on our 27 acre farmstead, the camping area is a separate entrance away from the host residence, boasting abundant trees and a year round creek, wildflowers, bird watching opportunities, hummingbirds galore, free range chickens, ducks and geese, and a turkey! Each evening, listen to the coyotes howl, the owls hoot, turkeys gobble, crickets chirp, and frogs croak.  There are paths cut through the pastures for walking, and the kids can ride their mountain bikes if they like.  There is a well marked hiking trail around the edge of the property for those who would like a little more of a challenge.

There is a small woodburning stove in the yurt so this can also be used during the cooler months, or year round for the hardy souls! Appropriate sized firewood is available for the stove.

The front porch has a cafe table and chairs, and a rocking chair. There is a small charcoal grill, it also works well as a small fire pit for s'mores and cooking hotdogs! There is also a larger fire pit in front of the yurt platform.

There will be a strict check-out time of 12 noon for this listing, with check-in after 2 pm.

Please keep in mind that the front platform of the yurt is 5 feet off the ground and railings are not sufficient to prevent young children from falling.

A 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended to get to this listing, there is a small creek bed to cross. You can also just park in the lower pasture and we can help bring your gear to the yurt.

We also have 6 tent or drive up vehicle campsites, so you may be sharing the farm with other guests, but this listing is very secluded from the others.

Other things to note:

Please read the listing thoroughly.

The animals are all very friendly, but they are animals and unpredictable.  There are also very large animals and it's easy to get stepped on.  Appropriate footwear is recommended.  If for ANY reason ANYONE feels unsafe with any of the animals, we have areas to separate them from the campers.  PLEASE do not hesitate to let your hosts know if you have any concerns.  You can communicate with us through the Hipcamp communication number, or if we aren't outside there is a side door with solar lights and a sign and you can knock on that door.

With the gates, the rule is if it's open, please leave it open, or if it's closed, please close it behind you.  If an animal escapes, please just let me know as soon as possible but be assured, it isn't the first time!!

We have a very friendly lab mix (?) named Tie Dye who greets visitors with me.  He is used to greeting other dogs.  We have 4 other dogs, Annie is a white American Bulldog mix and barks ALOT.  She is also very friendly, but we try to only let one dog out a time because they sometimes get a pack mentality and we are very careful.  The other 3 dogs usually stay up by the house, Chloe is brown and is Tie Dye's sister, Tug is a black lab/ shepard mix and Tie Dye and Chloe's daddy.  You probably won't see him, he lives for playing fetch and stays up by the house. George is the patriarch, an elderly lab mix so he also doesn't go far from the house.   All the dogs are friendly with humans.
