Enjoy your stay next to our edible forest garden and orchard of berries, nuts  and fruit trees.  This site is in the back yard due to the access from the driveway for cars and vans.  We offer privacy and many extras to this site if needed.  See reviews for all those who enjoy this site for its views and for the property location.  Again, it is a back yard site!   Various seasons will offer you an opportunity to pick your own breakfast in our maturing establishment.  If you are an edible landscape  enthusiast you will enjoy exploring, and examining our 8 year food forest with chestnut seedlings already tall enough to climb , 10-foot hazels bearing buckets of nuts and a different selection of raspberries, blackberries, gooseberry, currents, golden berries, service berries and Mulberries. (all are seasonal)      Enjoy a stroll through the meadow trail to breath in  morning views and evening fireflies and stars.  This camp area is semi private and closer to the household and area for parking a car or small camper is not far away.   Nearby blue mark trails, mountain biking, Ferris Acres Creamery, lake Lillinonah and outdoor activities are at your fingertips and your hosts will be happy to provide any assistance needed to find or enjoy these opportunities.  We can provide breakfast upon request from our free range chickens on our kiwi lined deck with beautiful mountain views.  Come and enjoy the croak of the bullfrog and the sound of the crickets.  We are new and growing our amenities so at this time check the overview for available amenities but you can guarantee we won't disappoint.  Come visit Mickelberry Forest Garden!!!

Back at you for wonderful guests!!! You were both so very sweet and appreciative. And it was windy! You were troupers with that wind!!! Max was so very well behaved and it was nice to meet you both. Thank you for your great correspondence and for giving the chickens water. ;)). Next time they will give you eggs in return. We look forward to you returning! Thank you for supporting our property. Our best to you, Bill and Amy

My group and I couldn't have possibly hoped for a better host. It was our first time using the site and I was a little uneasy, but Amy was incredibly welcoming and extremely helpful. She went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful— she even lent us some supplies that we forgot to bring along. To anyone that's looking for a place to go camping, I highly recommend this location. The property was also stunningly beautiful. Thanks for everything, Amy! We hope to come back soon.

Mickelberry Forest Gardens was quite scenic, safe and well equipped. My group and I spent the entire night outdoors in 35° temperature because we had our bonfire and was provided adequate wood to fuel it. We were undisturbed and were able to bond with our group while gazing at the starry canvas above.

Response from Amy, the Host, on October 21st, 2020

You guys were great and very brave to spend the cold night without a tent and sleeping bags. It was chilly!!!! Glad you had fun bonding and enjoying the sky!!! Come visit again and thank you for supporting our property!!! Best wishes, Bill and Amy
