We know that nothing beats waking up surrounded by nature. We also know that camping in the woods takes a lot of effort and that there’s nothing more deflating than returning from an amazing camping trip with a car load of laundry and supplies to take care of! We also know that some people want the quiet and privacy of the woods but can’t find it at busy campgrounds and that some people don’t enjoy sleeping on the rocky ground.
We’ve carefully thought through all of the pros and cons of camping to cater your experience at Plein Air! When you rent your tent space through us, here is what you’ll experience:
* A private spot in a magical pine forest.* A hearty, water and fireproofed, roomy 12 x 14 canvas tent covered by a tin roof. So even on rainy days, you will be kept warm and dry, listening to the sound of the rain on the roof. The windows and front and back doors unzip to screened windows and doors to help you fight off any potential mosquitoes while also allowing warm summer breeze to flow through.* A deck covered by tin roofing with comfortable Adirondack chairs.* A queen-size bed with a comfortable Tufts and Needle mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets, cushy pillows, and piles of soft, warm blankets. A rug is underneath to keep those bare feet warm!* A wood stove to light on cool mornings, a fire pit to light on beautiful evenings, and plenty of dry firewood for both.* Rechargeable battery-operated lanterns and a solar-powered battery to charge your own devices (there is no WiFi and limited cell service...Verizon tends to get the best service).* A propane camp stove to cook your meals on, with plenty of pots and pans, tinfoil, wooden spoons, plates, bowls, salt and pepper, oil, basic spices… everything you need!* Coffee from our local coffee shop and a camp stove French press with cream and sugar, peppermint chamomile tea grown on our farm, and generous-sized handcrafted pottery mugs made by Angie.* Fresh eggs from our farm and fresh bread, muffins, or pastries from our local baker will be waiting for you!* A cooler to keep your food in.* Gallons of water from our local mountain spring to drink, wash your dishes with, and use to put the campfire out. Biodegradable dish paste is provided.* Locally made, eco friendly cleaning supplies from Plymouth Soapworks.* A hammock to nap or read in.* An enclosed compost toilet with toilet paper and directions.* A seasonal, hot, outdoor shower (for cooler months, we recommend heating up water on the stove for a sponge bath).* Soft, big towels for the bath and beach towels for the beach* Unlimited access to paddleboards, kayaks, bikes, snowshoes, and river tubes (sizing may be off...we can answer any questions for those!)* Lots of woods behind the tent to explore.* Goats for composting your plant-based scraps!* Loads of books and games.* A binder of recommended hikes, adventures, and restaurants.* Add ons like local maple syrup, plant-based pre-made meals, wedding packages, or yoga packages are available!
What should you bring?* Bug spray* Food* Layers of clothes--New Hampshire weather can wildly fluctuate!* Something warm for your feet* A personal battery for charging any devices* A sense of adventure!
Anything else we should know?* Yes. Remember, that this is a full-woods immersion. So that means there is wildlife and bugs! Staying in the cabin comes with a bit of responsibility. All food must be cleaned up and stored properly to avoid attracting any wild critters, including bears. The garbage must be contained and covered and no food should be left out at any point. When you leave for the day or go to bed, please put anything in the sealed cooler or in your car, including toothpaste. Sweep up and dispose of any crumb. Feed your plant-based compost to the goats. If you are unsure of anything, give us a shout and we will help you! Remember this is luxury tenting, not luxury hoteling!* We have a working farm, so while you have as much privacy as you need, you may hear sounds coming from the property, like dogs, goats, chickens, and tractors. We are pretty quiet in the evenings though because we go to bed and rise early, so ask that you respect that as well.* Sometimes, if it rains and especially in the spring, there are some wet areas. Rain boots are always helpful!* Mosquitoes are a real thing here in New Hampshire and are inescapable if you intend to be outside at all. Some years are better than others. Bring bug spray!* We’ve taken tons of care to build this property and hope you will leave in the same condition you found it.

I can’t say enough good things about this beautiful site. Very close to a cute town with excellent ice cream and many hikes. Comfy bed, thoughtful snacks and supplies. You just need to bring clothes and a bit of food. Amazing hosts. I have told many about it already. Very peaceful and easy. I would love to come back.
Glamping at next level!
They took glamping to a new level. The tent/cabin was cleaner and nicer than most 4 star hotel rooms. Everything from the lighting, board games, high end coffee , fire pit with s’mores to fresh eggs and muffins. Not to mention the super clean and enjoyable shower with adjacent toilet. Bed super comfortable and minutes from Plymouth restaurants
In the perspective of two inexperienced outdoors adventurers this cozy little tent was perfect! Our host Angie was available through text at a moments notice to answer any questions we had. The campsite itself had every amenity we could possible need during our stay. Note for future campers that in the end of May season the mosquitos are out in full force so it would be advisable to know how to use the equipment provided, plus maybe bring some of your own extra ammunition. Easy hiking trails are in the area (5 minute drive) and a cute little town for morning coffee or dinner if you don’t take advance of the full kitchen the camp has to offer. Overall this was a great experience that motivated us to continue camping in the future. We enjoyed waking up every day to the sounds of nature! 10/10
