Thank you to all the wonderful friends we have met through this amazing program. We regret that our community at this time does now allow for "transient" renting of property and I unknowingly was operating outside of the zoning rules and regulations of our town. Please continue to get outside and enjoy all the beautiful places and spaces this world has to offer and keep in

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 7 year permacultuire 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!!!

Mickleberry Farms was a great spot. The hosts are lovely and very accommodating. The camper site was fairly close to the house but felt private and the hosts really made a point of making sure we weren’t disturbed. Tent camp sites are in an upper pasture which would be a really ideal experience. The spot is very rural but only ten to fifteen minutes from a main road. Great location -
Absolutely lovely location and the hosts were more than helpful, really going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. Definitely recommend this location - we will be back the next time our travels take us to western CT.
I was initially a bit hesitant booking this place however I took a chance and I’m glad I did. It was exactly what I was hoping it’d be. The grounds were awesome and the owners couldn’t have been friendlier. If you’re looking for a peaceful dog friendly location to do some glorified camping ... this is your place.
What an absolutely lovely place! Amy and her husband were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home! Beautiful views, land, place to camp and twinkle lights! I highly recommend staying here and can't wait to come back!
Highly recommend this spot! My boyfriend and I rented a car from NYC and brought my dog up to spend a couple of quiet nights out of the city. We could not have been more pleased with the location and hosts. Amy and Bill were so laid back and helpful throughout our stay. The communication was excellent and they were so friendly and accommodating. They are respectful of privacy while also being open and available to socializing and having a good time. We loved being right next to the chicken coop and waking up to fresh eggs for breakfast! Overall an amazing experience and we hope to come back.
Mickelberry Forest Gardens was a perfect camping spot for families with kids - there was a huge grass area to run around plus chickens and ducks to admire! There is not much shade so be sure to pack lots of sunscreen.
The host was incredibly nice and welcoming. She was very responsive and communicative from the beginning. The site is beautiful and I felt like I had a lot of privacy and freedom to roam the property. She was nice enough to bring me ive for my cooler. There is a lovely fire pit and plenty of wood, although I was so tired from my day long drive that I wasn't up to building a fire. I felt safe and secure. Despite the current social climate (covid 19) I felt at ease on this space. The host was even nice enough to help me jump my battery the morning I went to leave after leaving my truck door open for too long while preparing to go. I would definitely recommend this as a place to camp!
Wonderful hosts and views!
An overnight stay at the Mickelberry Forest Gardens is good for the soul! Beautiful property, great hosts... what's not to love?
The surrounding area is full of natural wonder to explore - lakes, hikes, bird-watching, farm stands...
If you are looking for a great little getaway, you can't go wrong with this spot!
