Peter's property is the perfect place to camp out for the weekend and enjoy some time away from the city. I recommend camp site #1! It's the one farthest in and more secluded. A nice little walk to the stream, I set up my breakfast spot out there to enjoy the sound of the water and spotting coyote crossing the stream, quite enjoyable!

What a great location! Situated feet from a beautiful small brook with a classic southern VT hill for backdrop. Sites are extremely spread out and private with large mowed clearing on perfectly flat land. I was only able to enjoy it for a short time ahead of a local run but look forward to coming back. Only issue was huge downpour at 3 am but that just proved the side stays dry with zero pooling! Although I never crossed paths with Pete he was super responsive on clarifications on directions.
(Also check out Brownsville butcher a short drive away - great place to pick up local groceries and some great food to go.)

The location was beautiful! We had great sights of the fall foliage, saw fish in the river and took a long hike through the Little Ascutney area. We had a lovely time being able to reconnect with nature and friends

This campsite was so perfect! The views of the stars at night were incredible and there were great hikes close by. Our dogs loved to play in the river and the space was perfect for our group. Thank you to Peter for a lovely stay! We will definitely be coming back.

Exactly as described. Private, beautiful, and easy to access. Quiet throughout our two night stay with sounds of nature and the lovely creek. My children swam and our dogs had a blast. Peter had a grill, fire pit, chairs, and more. It was exactly what we hoped for. Many fun day trip activities nearby. Will return!

Loved this nice little spot! At night we could hear the babbling brook and could see the stars.
Peter was a great host and it was a secluded but easy area to get to!!!

This was the first time I've been camping and really felt like it. To be fair, this is my first season out without the family, but Pete's campsite really felt like another place.
The stream right out behind the campsite was the perfect place to get away when the sun got too hot, and the open field was a wonderful place to stargaze once the sun set. The view of the mountains is wonderful, and with a corner shop just a 10 min drive away, there's just enough of a safety net if you forget something without having to deal with the noise of a busy road.
The only "detraction" is that there aren't any sturdy trees for a hammock, but unless thats how you plan to sleep it really isnt that big a deal.
