Cold but so good!
I loved my time in the big field! Steve was great, he even gave me the pick of sites since it was windy in the field but the field was too beautiful to not brave the cold! I will absolutely be back! Thanks so much!

This was good! Has Tenstile spot!
Button Farm is a peaceful secluded camping area and I was surprised that updated instead of portapotties there is a high end composting outhouse in place.
Steven is an accommodating host and the farm has some fun information plaques to check out at the location

Pretty, private camping spot.
Lovely spot, very private, super clean composting toilet, (we switched to the farmhouse site due to a cancellation). Steven was very friendly, had set up a picnic table under shelter for us because rain was expected. Great access to Seneca Creek trails. Photos and description very accurate.

This was my favorite Hip site yet! Great location with biking and omg the trails right on the property. The mill down the hill is a must do. We took chairs and sat in the creek. Close to the C & O. A winery was 3 miles away. The site was wide open and secluded. Very quiet and tons of birds and deer. Steve met us at the house and gave us and was very friendly. The bathroom is a bike ride away but not an issue at all. The geese, chicken and three lazy fat pigs were a bonus. The history of the property was interesting. Take the time to read all the signs around. Would love to go back in the fall with the leaves changing!

If you are into peace and tranquility this is the place to stay. Stayed on Big Hill behind the barn. Was going to stay for one night decided on a second. I will be coming back. Thank you for allowing me to camp at your place.
