Stergelandia

9 sites · Lodging10 acres · Angelica, NY
Welcome to Stergelandia-the place you want when you need it most. We take the work out of camping for you! Come experience open fields, dark skies and forest deep in Amish country. We've all had difficulties in our lives that required us to regroup and reset. With this in mind, we designed and created the glass sanctuary for our guests, an on-site store for gifts to take with you, walking paths for you to immerse yourself in the woods and quiet, contemplative spaces for you to sit and reflect. Love nature but don't want to immerse yourself in the fields and woods? Enjoy stargazing and sunbathing on our elevated viewing platform and field-level cabana deck! Love wildlife? Stergelandia is teeming with life. We are home to white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, chipmunks and our beloved frogs! At night, hear the chirping of the peeper tree frogs and the howl of the coyotes. Enjoy a more manicured setting than the woods and fields? You'll enjoy our small, restored apple orchard surrounding the meditation garden. Coming with friends? From the gathering circle featuring wood benches for your group to sit and talk, to the decks and benches thoughtfully laid out throughout the property, there is plenty of space for you to enjoy the quiet serenity of an overnight in the countryside. Our meditation space, the Glass Chapel and garden, is perfect for intimate ceremonies and gatherings, and our field viewing platform and deck is an excellent place for people to gather under the sun and stars. On weekends we offer pastries and a variety of hot beverage items for guests in a communal setting from the first weekend in June through the second weekend in October. Stergelandia is perfect for stargazing! A remote setting, you’re close enough to amenities to feel at home but deep enough in the woods to get away from it all. We’ve seen deer, foxes, turkeys, hawks, chipmunks and bear on the property-a wildlife lovers paradise! We are 9 minutes from the Genesee River access point where fishing and paddling is plentiful. Want to unplug? Our guests with T-Mobile, AT&T and Cricket have had reliable cell service and we can help with tips to store your cell phone during your stay. Our guests with Verizon report they are offline, leaving you free to use your phone for photos without the interruptions or temptations of outside life. We are close by in our cottage on most weekends if any questions arise and can be reached by cell phone during the week. We offer cozy Mexican blankets, Icelandic Wool blankets, Icelandic Chocolates and other items and souvenirs for purchase on most Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday mornings. All glamping guests registered through Hipcamp are given complimentary access to scheduled activities in September-October including our amazing 4th annual women's retreat, Chicks in the Sticks, from September 14-15, 2024.

A Promise to Gaia/Garden Of One

6 sites · Lodging107 acres · Rensselaerville, NY
Our focus and purpose on this land is to provide stewardship and sanctuary for the Natural world to maintain it’s own balance with minimal interference from humans. To remain wild and free. We are a plant, wildlife and butterfly sanctuary. We rent the lodgings (Chalet, Cabin & Glampsite) to support and fund the maintenance and expansion of native and pollinating species of plants, expanding the area that we steward, providing habitat and refuge for animals, insects, birds and more. We wish to share our sacred land with people that love and respect the Earth, who wish to contribute to a conservation project through their own presence and mindfulness. Once a RV camping park called "Thunder Hill Campground" in the late 1960's early 1970's, the land sat mostly unused for 15 years before Rachel came to steward it 20 years ago. We are 107 acres of forest, a 9 acre lake, ponds, creeks, labyrinth, a Holistic Retreat Center & Organic Permaculture Farm at a 2000 foot elevation in the Heldeberg Mountains. 500 million years ago during the Devonian Period this was a sea, so we live in shale based mountains with lots of fossils! The Heldebergs are one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth, these mountains have been worn down to 2000 feet over time. Native Americans lived in the area many years ago and we are quite sure this was Native American sacred ceremony land. Hiking, canoeing, swimming and fishing (catch & release only) are available on site. There are many places to hike in the area, an Eagle Trail and in winter, 2 miles away, is a Nature Preserve that rents snowshoes and has trails for snowshoeing and cross country skiing, Very rural and private, even though we are only 25 miles SW of Albany, NY the capital of NYS, here it is quiet and peaceful. We do have 3 very friendly dogs that will want to be your best friends. Also farm animals that you can meet. There will be farm noises, roosters greeting the morning and various grunts and snorts... far less noise than any modern city. Albany, along with the surrounding areas, have many events etc going on. There's hiking, biking, nature parks, horse racing, concerts, festivals and events and so much more. Links and information can be provided to campers that stay with us that are looking for entertainment & excursions. We are near Albany, Berne, Catskill, Cairo, Cobleskill, East Durham, Greenville, Hunter, Knox, Medusa, Oak Hill, Middleburgh, Schoharie, Westerlo, Windham.

Each A-Frame poses a minimalist setup with everything you need, but nothing more so that you can unplug, and reconnect with the world around you. Other Notable Landmarks: Chautauqua Gorge State Forest: 2 minutes Chautauqua Lake: 7 minutes Chautauqua Institution: 10 minutes Lilydale: 20 minutes Findley Lake: 15 minutes Peak n’ Peak Resort: 25 minutes 20+ wineries within surrounding area (10-30 minutes) Downtown Buffalo, NY: 1 hour Niagara Falls: 1.5 hours Downtown Erie, PA: 45 minutes Guest access Guests have direct access to their booked A-Frame via a keyless entry (digital code will be provided prior to check-in).

Other things to note The 9 Acres is off the grid (no electric or running water), we provide solar lights and battery-powered lights to try and keep the light pollution in the stargazing field at a minimum. Each A-Frame is equipped with a portable solar power station so you can keep your devices charged and make your complementary morning coffee/tea using our kettle and french press. Fresh drinking water is also provided in each A-Frame. Enjoy roasting marshmallows over the fire-pit which has Adirondack seating for six overlooking the pond. We supply firewood for your use. Please do not cut down any trees while you’re here. Our land is precious and we haul our wood from offsite. Your camp is located in natural wildlife habitat. Bugs and critters make up our natural ecosystem and come with the territory. None of our sites are ideal for insect-phobic guests. We do everything possible to keep them outside, by thoroughly cleaning the space between guests, but some inevitably still wander in. Cell Phone/Internet Service: Cell phone service is a bit spotty on the property. We do not provide internet at The 9 Acres specifically for you to unplug with our low-tech minimalist setup. Events: All guests should be listed on your reservation, please let us know if you are expecting anyone. All event inquiries, please contact the host. No pets. No hunting. Catch & Release Fishing Only.
