Follow us on Instagram @shitefootfarms As always we are excited and can't wait to share our place with you! We are a small farmette with goats, chickens, ducks, fruits, veggies, and Irish Wolfhounds. The 1.3 acre parcel across the street from the house and farm has a forested peninsula that the A-frame is located on. Our street ends in a small stream that continues to separate the farmstead from the A-frame site. Come stay in our tiny rustic A frame cabin built of mostly reclaimed materials. Enjoy being across the stream and over the bridge from the main house on a private peninsula. Enjoy the privacy of a "single site" camp! Use the fire pit, grill, outdoor wood stove, single burner butane stove or umm the bathroom :) without having to leave your site! Please be aware we are in town and you may hear road noise, lawn mowers, dogs, ect. You may also see and hear wildlife ex; deer, beavers, ducks, muskrats, rabbits, geese, foxes, and coyotes. We encourage native plants and work to provide a sanctuary for many threatened bird species. The cabin is 100sq. feet with sloping interior walls the flip up side wall is permanently open and screened in. There is no running water or electricity so unplug and unwind. A place to plug in and the water spigot a short stroll from your cabin in the driveway The cabin has a a full size mattress with sheets, blankets, throws and pillows. Lanterns, cooking utensils, camp mugs and camp coffee pot are provided. Please request the cast iron skillet and butane burner, it will not be in the cabin if you do not ask for it. If you want to add a guest we have a tent available for rent that will be set up with a futon, table and lantern at the site for you. You are also welcome to set up your own tent. Please note cleared space is limited and the tent should be a 1-3 person smaller tent. Outside on the deck are tiki torches, woodstove and bistro table. There is a hammock, picnic table, and 2 sets of outdoor chairs at your site. We do not have a swimming hole but the town beach is 5 minutes away and requires a day pass. If you forget something you are a short walk to Cumbies, and several farms, bakeries and a large grocer are a very short drive away. Venture farther (10 minutes) to one of the nearby hiking trails.

Must visit!
I loved staying in the a-frame on the water! It was just shady enough that you can be outside all day and not get too hot, so you can enjoy the outdoors without needing electricity, even though Jae offers a fan in the a-frame for you if you鈥檇 like. I was able to explore both Rhode Island and Massachusetts hiking spots, as well as some great restaurants nearby thanks to Jae鈥檚 recommendations. Do yourself a favor and opt in to the farm fresh eggs, they are delicious! I definitely have to say though, that the best part is being fully secluded from town, but only a pathway and a few trees away, so you still feel completely comfortable being alone. An added perk is getting to see all of the farm animals each morning, and getting to say hi to the dogs!

Overall it was a nice trip we had! The site was cute and quite secluded while being close to local stores like stop and shop, dollar tree, and stuff and host was very friendly and helpful. One downside I would say is it鈥檚 not for winter time as one side of the walls cannot be closed and remains open as seen in the picture. Host gave us full description before checking in and we were also planning to head out at night anyways so it was fine. But if you decide to spend a night there, it鈥檚 pretty chilly and windy so I would not recommend unless you bring some sort of heat that is NOT electricity powered - the site does not have any outlets.

Wonderful site with kind host
Jae was such a kind and considerate host who made our stay wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable despite some unexpected heavy rain. We stayed warm and dry in the A-frame and got a full 1.5 day's use of the site, complete with camp fire! The location was beautiful with the stream nearby and trees surrounding the site. It felt private and natural. Jae was accommodating and responsive at every turn. I would highly recommend this site to anyone interested in an easily accessible, low-effort camping/glamping outing.

My girlfriend and I had a lot of fun at Jae鈥檚 A-Frame. We fed chickens, walked with goats and dogs, and enjoyed a relaxing night by the fire pit. The A-frame is close to the parking spot, and close to shops but feels totally secluded. This property is so pretty in the fall, and Jae is a great host. 10/10 would come back again.

I had an amazing experience even though the weather wasn't the best. This was my first experience camping with a dog and she loved it. Justine was very kind and attentive. She provided a soft rug, food bowls and a huge lead for my pup. I am very happy with my experience here and plan to go back when the weather gets better. 10 stars out of 5 stars experience.
