AMAZING STUNNING PROPERTY! PRIVATE! PEACEFUL! Absolutely heaven sent! A place that will stay in your hearts forever. The property's backdrop is the lush James Goodwin forest where you can walk directly from to hiking trails. Fall asleep under the magnificent brilliance of the millions of stars, hear nothing but the sound of crickets, croaking frogs, hooting owls; see fireflies light up the night and fall asleep to the sound of the streams running right alongside the property. Watch the ariel acrobatics of the swallows swoop into the barn to feed their chicks! The two streams feed into the huge Natchaug River right across the street which is great for fishing, or spending the day at Diana's pool basking on the rocks with a picnic lunch. The area and property is perfect for hiking, horseback riding, small retreats, family gatherings all the while enjoying nature at its purest.
We offer a Weber grill and large fire pit and outdoor picnic table with umbrella.
You can either sleep in the barn, down in the clean stalls, or up in the barn loft. We offer two queen size and two twin DELUX blow up mattresses. Bring supplies as if you are camping ie bedding, hammock, tent, sleeping pad. There is a long wooden table up in the barn loft that seats 14. There are games up there too, (dominos, cards, trivial pursuit etc). You may also camp outside under the starry skies.
No loud music. Noise off by 10pm please
We provide a VERY clean porta potty and the barn has electricity and running (cold) water. Bring a solar portable shower should you need.

Dog friendly and an enjoyable stay
The property was great and felt private considering you're not far from the house. The barn loft was spacious and the whole place was clean. It was nice having easy access to potable water and the porta-john on site made the trip comfortable for all of us. Jocelyn was very communicative and made sure we had everything we needed. She recommended some nearby areas to check out and overall we had a great experience. I would definitely stay here again.

Great camping and hang out space!
The property was beautiful and well maintained. It was positioned far enough away from their home that you felt like you had the place to yourself. There was good space to have multiple centers for activity. The barn space was well lit at night and made for a great hang out space. There was a lot of good yard to sit up tents, and comfortable accommodation in the barn for people who didn’t have tents. Jocelyn was very accommodating to allowing us to enjoy ourselves and maintain a nice party atmosphere. It was a big plus to have a toilet and running water nearby. Would absolutely recommend.

We loved our stay here! Jocelyn was very kind and welcoming, and this few days of retreat with not an awful lot to do was exactly what we needed. Jumping into ponds, napping on the grass, and grilling without the endless to do lists of our own homes was a true delight.

Jocelyn’s land is incredible, exactly as described. Diana's Pool is a must. Can't wait to come back.

Phenomenal School Retreat!
We came for our Yale Outdoors retreat and had an amazing stay!! The barn was beautiful and comfortable, it housed 12 of us with no problem. The property was great, we spent hours out by the fire and seated around the picnic table. Jocelyn was the best host, super responsive and helpful; she made sure we had everything we needed. Couldn’t recommend this place more, Yale Outdoors will definitely be back next year. <3

This was the perfect spot for our mini reunion. The barn was fun for the kids to play in and to have in case of rain. There is plenty of space and a great yard with a fire pit and picnic table that were a good fit for 3 families. Jocelyn was very attentive and helpful with questions and recommendations. We'll definitely stay here again.

Quiet, easy backyard camping 🙂🏕
We had a wonderful time staying at Jocelyn's place—an adorable patch of land with a great tree, barn, and firepit behind her beautiful home. It was perfect for setting up a tent and reading or playing games for hours on end. There were even some fireflies, which I hadn't seen since I was a kid. Jocelyn was very welcoming and communicative, and shared some local food tips for us. Highly recommended if you're looking for a night or two to camp somewhere outside of Rhode Island or in eastern CT.
