Birch Star Farm in historic Charlto…

Our historic and peaceful property is yours to explore! You can swim in the pond, take casual strolls around the property, enjoy the campfire at night, bike for miles on scenic country roads, and use this site as a jumping off point to discover all the beer, wine, cheese, concerts, festivals, hiking, kayaking, restaurants, shopping and more that the greater Capital Region has to offer! While we are actively researching the history of the Native Americans who first dwelled here and will update our listing to reflect a more comprehensive and accurate story of the land, the first white occupants to build here were the Hawley Family, in 1790. The farmhouse dates to this era. Outbuildings were added through the decades and centuries, and the land was used as a dairy farm, among other ventures, by previous owners. We purchased the property in 2021 in hopes of providing more space, nature and outdoor living for our two little ones. Our plans include planting Christmas trees, apple, pear and cherry trees, and garlic to share with neighbors, family, friends, and at local farmers' markets, and brewing our own beer and cider. If you have any planting or farming advice to share, please don't hesitate! Follow us on Instagram @birchstarfarm

We loved our stay at Birch Star Farm! When we arrived, Aileen greeted us and told us where the site was and how to get there. The campsite is a large grassy field with a good-sized pond, a large firepit with seating, a small sand beach, and a picnic table. We had the entire place to ourselves during our visit and were able to set up right next to the Pond Shack along the water. We enjoyed getting to kick back next to the water to relax in the evening. We slept great and, overall, had an amazing stay.

Wonderful host family
We had a wonderful stay at Birch Star Farm!!! Aileen and her husband Edward are very welcoming and friendly hosts. The campsite at the pond is so peaceful. We enjoyed watching the stars and listening to the frogs. The kids were even catching a few fish. We were so sad that we had to leave earlier, because our little guy got sick. Aileen was very flexible and very understanding and even gave us a partly refund. Thanks so much for everything!!! We will be back next year.

Flexible Hosts & 👍 Location to SPAC
Aileen was so kind and accommodating! She was very flexible as our plans evolved. We spent two nights on her farm to attend a concert at SPAC. The property was easy to find and well maintained. The first night it rained so we grabbed dinner at the tavern (.5 miles away). Their property has a screened-in building next to the pond which provided us a dry place to play board games until bed. Would definitely stay here again and wish we had more time to learn about their farm!

We had an incredible time at Aileen's property! Aileen and her husband built us a fire and provided a rain shelter since it was storming. They were both so kind and the property was beautiful!

Great Spot
Great spot. We were driving into the evening and couldn't find a campground within a reasonable distance off the highway and with availability. Tried hipcamp on a whim and stumbled upon Aileen's property. It was all we needed and more for a quick stopover. Beautiful grassy spot alongside a small pond out of sight from the main road and main house. My son caught fish and my daughter danced with the fireflies. Perfect ending to a long day in the car. Aileen and her husband were perfectly welcoming and provided a pizza recommendation along the way in.
