Campsites are on the edge of a large field, just a couple of minutes from the organic flower gardens and the house. You can cool off in a bamboo "room", always a hit with kids. Organic produce, eggs, honey and jam are all available. The hayfield is the site of Connecticut's first stupa, a Buddhist peace monument. There are sacred Native American sites on the edge of the field. The Hay House Farm is in the Great Cedars Nature Conservancy, which joins with the contiguous Preserve Nature Conservancy to form the largest coastal forest between New York and Boston. The trailhead is our driveway, and the trail heads into the woods just behind the barn. The trails continue for miles into the adjoining towns of Westbrook and Essex. There is a 22 acre spring-fed lake which is great for swimming during the summer. Expect a variety of wildlife. The farm is just about a mile from Long Island Sound (Old Saybrook, at the mouth of the Connecticut River, has 25 miles of shoreline and is great for kayaking and canoeing). There is also an apartment available that is attached to the barn, for those who want a bit more comfort.

A perfect peaceful off the grid tre
The facility was beautiful, peaceful and far enough away from civilization to feel "in the middle of nowhere" but close enough to run to town if you forgot something. David knew the history of the area extremely well and clearly loves his home.
We left feeling refreshed, restored and at peace.
This was our second stay at David’s farm, and we’ll definitely be coming back again. The farm’s a wonderful place to stay, David’s a great host, and the surrounding area in CT has plenty to do.
Exactly what we were looking for!
This is exactly what we were looking for in a camp site! Quiet, plenty of room, privacy, and David was very inviting and friendly!
David meets up with you when you arrive and gives you a quick tour around the gardens and grounds so you can find you way back to your car or to the outhouse when needed. You walk through the gardens to get to a field where you camp on the edge of the woods and you have this wide open space all to yourself (there is another site close but not as close as other campgrounds, but we were the only ones there at the time) there’s trails in the nature preserve and trails in the field as well as a Buddhist stupa. And a bamboo patch made into a little hide away with a sitting area inside! At night we heard owls and could see a frillion stars! Beautiful peaceful property! David informed us of a local farmers market that we went to the next day. Great weekend! Will definitely be returning when it warms up again!!
