Places to see near Hawthorn Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We really enjoyed our stay! The covered fire pit, the trails around the property, the goats, easy access to water and clean compost toilet were all a part of why I would not hesitate to recommend staying here. Very nice hosts were a great bonus!
We camped for two nights at the upper fire ring, also known as the green palace. It was quiet and felt so secluded that it was easy to forget we were in suburban Woodinville. There was plenty of firewood and even a yurt with a firering. We didnt use the yurt because we had dry weather both nights, but I could see it as a lovely option during the rainy season. We used the farm wheelbarrows to move camping stuff from our car to the site, which was maybe a 5 minute walk.
The farm was a real treat for our 4 year old son. He got to pet the bunnies, feed apples to goats, collect duck eggs, and help feed the chickens. All of the farmers were gracious and welcoming, and easily included our son in their farm chores.
We would definitely stay again!
We have stayed here many times, and keep coming back. The woods are beautiful, with lots of trails. It is so convenient, because if you forget something (which we inevitably do), there’s a Safeway close by. Plus, you can use a real sink, to wash you dishes, which is a major bonus.
The best gets better
Hawthorn Farm is my sanctuary.
This was my second visit--I have been biding my time finding a good opportunity to return since I was in awe that a place that has the full feeling of being in the wilderness is only 30 minutes away from me in the city.
But this time, I messed up some logistics on my side--it's a long story involving how to care for my cat while I'm away. Despite my blunder, everything worked out! I invited others on my booking and was able to check on my cat since I was not too far away. And Alexia helped me figure things out with my guests and the tours we signed up for.
My previous review was very thorough already and you should read it for a clear breakdown of why I love Hawthorn Farm is my quick escape. I'll instead comment on what was different this time.
Unlike my first visit, this time I signed up for ALL the things. Alexia has tour options for the farm and ponies. PONIES. My guest and I got up close to the animals and plants that were growing on the farm. We fed the goats, walked Duke the pony, and met Nutmeg the miniature horse. And yes, there's a subtle difference and we learned a whole lot!
Alexia is always improving the experience. As soon as I stepped on the camp grounds, I noticed a natural table was added to the top spot. It served as a rain cover for my chair that I keep outside my tent and also a surface for my guest to cook. I like how it blends in with the scenery and saves me from having to bring my own. I also spotted a 3rd spot where hipcampers can have a fire--there's a new fireplace between the story-telling yurt and the fire pit on the hill. So many options for hanging out!
And if the tour and updates to the site were not enough, I had a chance to meet some others on the farm (I'll keep them anonymous for privacy) who I cannot thank enough for adding a special class I was not expecting at the end! They are such a talented teacher! I am now interested in volunteering at the farm and picking up a new hobby.
Magical forest, friendliest farm
Just enjoyed 2 nights at Hawthorne Farm and I am feeling soooo blissfully lucky for it!
I took my kids (just mama and 2 kids) and felt perfectly safe sleeping in the mystical, magical Wren Forest adjacent to the farm. We were visited by chipmunks, birds, occasional bats, dragonflies, and most notably, a great horned owl. Plus this old-growth forest is special and the energy is infectious. I spent plenty of minutes just sitting and staring and soaking it all in. Oh, and the creek is there to find even more wonderful critters! Frogs, fish and crayfish, to name a few.
The forest is thoughtfully appointed with a composting toilet, common area with counter height table for your cooking tools, and firepit/storytelling yurt. Firewood is provided!
The Farm, which is a working/educational farm, is full of wonders! A flock of ducks that wander through the grounds at their leisure. Chickens you are welcome to visit with your scraps. The cutest friendliest goat trio on the planet, who appreciate your in-pen visits. Horses you are welcome to stroke and admire. And big beautiful bunnies - who by chance had recently had babies.... so, teeny tinies to admire as well.
On the farm is an outdoor shower you are welcome to, and sinks for washing dishes and filling up your growlers with fresh water to take back to camp.
But all that aside... Alexia might be the friendliest gal on the planet. She welcomed new little farmhands who couldn't stop following her around with exceptional grace. She is a true people person and educator, on top of her obvious love for her land and animals. Thank you, Alexia!!
Wish we had a little table with us in the forest to play some cards or hold our dinner plates.
Bugs are few and far between, but at dusk, they stop and say hello!
At night, I benefitted from ear plugs and some white noise coming from my phone as the site isn't in actual wilderness (thought it sure seems it!) and therefore roadways are somewhere out there... near enough to be aware of... if you're sensitive like me....
BYO soap & towel if you plan to partake in the showers!
