Our 18 acres has been farm land for hundreds of years. After many years of overgrowth, we homesteaded the property in 2012. We cut trees, milled wood and built our homes and barn. We live in harmony with our animals and our crops in a permaculture environment. We are just miles from many beautiful lakes, rivers and spectacular parks.  Enjoy a farm stay in our luxurious yurt tent complete with queen size bed and outdoor shower. Meet the goats, cows, ducks, chickens and our pony, Mr. BoJangles, and have a walk around the acre plot of permaculture grown produce. Stop into the farm shop, The Shack and purchase some maple syrup, jam and whatever is in season. Plenty of things to do locally. Visit the many vineyards and breweries, take a cooking class at Hunt Hill across the street, visit the quaint NE towns such as Kent or Washington. We are following all Covid-19 standards and protocols and will maintain social distance. We are only offering two night minimum weekend stays so the amount of time between guests is maximized for cleaning and disinfecting.

Awesome quiet place up in CT
This was my second time coming to this farm and I loved everything about it! Everything is super clean and really well laid out. There’s a grill you can cook with, a nice campfire spot, and a spacious yurt. It looked even nicer this year than last, which I didn’t think was possible because it was super nice last year too. Overall 10/10, there were great places to go peach and blueberry picking and a bunch of cute farmers markets in the town over. Amy and Bill were amazing and responded super quickly to all my messages. Thanks again and hope to come back again next year! :)

My husband and I went to Amy and Bill's farm for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! The yurt was beautiful, clean, and comfortable (especially the bed) We loved meeting the animals. There is even a cute tree swing to play on! It rained during one of our days, but the tent was a perfect place to enjoy the rain and have a relaxing day. The surrounding area has lots of places to explore, and Amy and Bill had great recommendations for us. They were very communicative and helpful throughout our stay. We highly recommend this place and would LOVE to come back for our anniversary! Thank you so much for a wonderful time.

Our stay at Amy and Bills yurt was a wonderful and memorable experience. The yurt itself was gorgeous, and the surrounding area was exceptional. Amy and Bill were great hosts. A fire pit, table, and seating were provided as well as beautiful scenery accompanied by a lovely surrounding area. There was plenty to do around town to keep busy and I would highly recommend the stay as a nice weekend getaway.

One of the most memorable trips
My friends and I had such an amazing time at Amy and Bill’s beautiful farm. They introduced us to the farm animals and showed us around their place, which was so fun to witness especially since we’re all from cities and don’t get to experience real animals / plants / nature most of the time. The campsite is very secluded and everything you need is already there. There’s a grill, fire pit, chairs, tables, a NICE and CLEAN bathroom, a shower, a water hose, blankets, towels, literally everything you would need is already set up and organized for you. COVID-19 measures are also in place, which made us feel even more comfortable. Amy and Bill are living a true Stardew Valley life and it’s so inspirational to see what they’ve done with their farm. Definitely will come back! 10/10

Sweet and serene get away!
Very pleasant stay! Amy and Bill were both super friendly in showing us all around the farm. They recommended places to eat and hike, and always responded to any questions we had quickly! We got so used to walking by the cows that it was hard to say goodbye. Would definitely recommend! :)

Absolutely loved staying at Finnegan's Farm. The property was beautiful and Bill and Amy were such great, welcoming hosts. Amy took us on a tour of the grounds and introduced us to all of their wonderful animals and Bill was really great to talk to. Overall, had the best experience.

Beautiful, relaxing retreat.
My husband and I had a great time on Finnegan's Farm. The property and general area are beautful: close to farms, forests, swimming holes, and restaurants. We enjoyed the beautiful frog songs in the evening, a surprise of fresh strawberries from Amy's garden, and a lovely tour of their animals. For those unaccustomed to yurting, it's much like tent camping, so be sure you dress for the weather! Amy and Bill had plenty of blankets for the cool evenings. Many thanks, Amy & Bill. Hope we can return with our kids someday.

So Peaceful
We went to finnegans farm for a weekend of camping. We have been actively camping and going to different camp sites in NJ and this was a new adventure that we weren't expecting. Most of our camps have been at state run camp sites where you would be lucky to have running water or a bathroom. That's ok because that is part of the fun. We were really surprised by the farm. Billy and Amy are great hosts and the farm was fantastic. There are animals that my children could watch, and feed! She got to go in the morning with Amy to feed them and in the evening round them up. Her greatest memory was holding one of the geese. She said it was like holding a pillow. Lol Let me tell you, Billy and Amy were fantastic hosts. We arrived really late because I had to work that day, but Bill welcomed us and showed everything we needed. The Yurt was like an outdoor hotel room. It was still camping but was not overly hard on us. There was running water, outdoor furniture to sit on, a fire pit and an outdoor shower for the time we needed it. The farm was the best part. Everything is organically grown, and OMG.. Bill's flowers... I purchased bunches and bunches of them for my flower shop. So fresh and so beautiful. We will definitely go back!!!

One of the best camping experience
Amy and Bill are very welcoming and considerate. The yurt and camp site are very very clean. They have towels and flashlights prepared in the yurt. We got a bit late on Friday night and Bill stood in the chilly weather and waited for us to give us a tour. Really appreciate that. The farm have cute animals, pony, white ducks, and goats! We really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect stay, perfect hosts
We couldn't recommend Finnegan Farm, West enough! Amy and Bill have created a sweet little oasis that is beautiful and welcoming. The site is pristine with a lovely fire pit, green egg grill, composting toilet, super comfortable bed, and access to an beautiful outdoor shower with warm water. We had such a relaxing time. Our 2.5 year old loved having access to open space and visiting the animals. Amy and Bill were the perfect hosts. We can't wait to come back and look forward to the other additions they have in the works!

My wife and I came here for a baby moon and could not have had a better experience. The Finnegan Farm Yurt is a beautiful secluded getaway that we would highly recommend. We got to enjoy farm fresh food that was cooked right on their Green Egg while enjoying the quiet and serenity of their property. We also both agreed that it was a couple of the best nights of sleep that we had ever gotten. Amy and Bill are incredible hosts that allow for the perfect balance of helping you with what you need and allowing for privacy. They were incredibly helpful and kindhearted. We left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. We can’t wait to come back!

The owners are very welcoming and nice. The farm is gorgeous and well-maintained. Just the right amount of animals. The yurts is great for people who want to camp but don’t want to pitch a tent or feel the earth beneath them. The bed is comfy & clean with lots of blankets. There is also enough space to just hang out (inside the yurt). The outhouse is by far one of the cleanest & coolest ever!! 5 stars!!

Perfect Weeked
Directions were very easy to follow. Amy met us when we arrived and showed us to the campsite, which had everything we needed. Amy was incredibly friendly and communicative, making sure we had enough drinking water and giving us great recommendations for things to do in the area (Definitely check out Thorncrest Farm!). The bed was comfortable and the entire space was private. We had a lovely weekend. Thank you Amy and Bill!

Amazing farm-getaway!
I had a fantastic stay together with my girlfriend and 1 year old daughter at Amy and Bills yurt! Perfect little get-away spot that just invites you to kick back, cook some good food on the barbecue and look at the stars. Amy and Bill were super helpful with everything and even made sure we left with some fantastic vegetables from their farm (at which you are staying!). Our daughter had the most amazing times eating the best tomatoes, playing with the little horse Bojangles and living in a tent.

Great two night stay at the Yurt!
My 7 year old daughter and I had a blast camping in the Yurt for two nights. The Yurt was clean, the bed was super comfortable and when it rained one night the Yurt stayed home dry. Amy and Bill were fantastic hosts and my daughter loved meeting the farm animals: Bo the pony - the mischievous goats - ducks and pony’s etc. Amy and Bill gave us great tips on things to do in the area - hiking, ice cream shops, restaurants - all strong recommendations. We especially enjoyed Bohemian Pizza which is a kids dream with all the fish tanks, lights and posters - hiking at Bee Brook - buying bread in Bantam and the ice cream shop in Bantam. When we were leaving we bought steaks and veg from Bill which were fantastic. Highly recommend staying at the Yurt and exploring the farm and surrounding area.

Magical!
Such a lovely place! We spent a night with our 3-year-old, grilling and making bread over the fire. Yurt is beautiful and comfortable, and the whole atmosphere is amazing. Heads up, bring your own plates, utensils, cups, everything. Maybe I should have known that wouldn’t be there. Breakfast can be bit challenging if you’re not up to barbecuing again ;) No running water or electricity.

Far beyond anything I imagined
We only met Bill. That was quite an experience in itself. He was friendly, incredibly smart and kind. We could listen to him talking about the how's and why's of his farm as long as he had the time to take to tell us. The farm itself will be a destination for our next vacation. Next time, we want to spend a week examining the hows and whys of permaculture. The campsite was not just everything promised, it showed care and thoughtfulness. The outdoor shower was great and the outhouse was the best I have experienced. We sampled white raspberries, hung out with their three Highland cattle., cooked on their green egg and slept peacefully in the New Zealand yurt. In short, we loved our stay and it is now a part of the permaculture of our brains.

A Pleasant Stay, even with a Baby
First things first, book your stay now. The hype is real, the yurt at Finnegan's Farm is spectacular. Amy and Bill are a sweet husband and wife pair. They're generous hosts that catered to all the questions we had, all while being both responsive and hospitable. The yurt is clean and sits on a private section of their land. At your disposal is a designated camp fire pit, a Big Green Egg Grill, a picnic table, an outhouse and a NEWLY BUILT shower. The secret's out, your stay has gotten better. After testing the waters on "glamping" with our eleven month old baby, we're excited for our future stay. The destination provided a safe playground for us to get out of city life and get in touch with nature. Thanks again!

An amazing experience
Anne and Bill were incredibly hospitable throughout our entire stay at their camp site. From reservation, they kept effective and timely communication with us, relaying logistics and recommendations along the way. They were attentive during our stay at their lovely yurt, which was spacious and clean. An outdoor shower with hot water was recently installed, and even the outhouse was spotless and odorless. There is a permaculture farm on the land, full of seasonal vegetables, which we were able to purchase for the grill - they were INCREDIBLE! We had a blast using the fire pit and the grill, and admiring the animals, especially the cows. Will definitely stay with them again in the future.

restful and lovely
We had a lovely time at the farm -- the yurt is clean and bright, the bed is so comfortable, and the surrounding area is perfectly outfitted with a grill, fire pit and dining table. The farm is beautiful and it feels very secluded. Bill and Ann were great and there for every need. We purchased wood, charcoal and AMAZING veggies from them. Lots of river and lake swimming to be had, plenty of trails. We will be coming back for sure.
