Well off the beaten track, it's scenic, private and peaceful. Camping at Moon In The Pond Farm is a little bit of heaven. There are six separate sites, all in different locations around the farm, so you've got your own secluded spot to enjoy. (And might be sharing a field next to our Scottish Highland cattle!) Two are tent sites (PondSide and FieldEdge). There's a site for small/tiny RVs or Campervan. BellTent has that on it--a bit of 'glamping'). And then there's the cabin--a bed a roof and convenience. Each has a firepit with a small grill to cook over the fire. (firewood available) Our 'campsites' are located in quieter areas of the farm. One overlooks the pond, three others are under the trees on the edges of different farm fields, one is a cabin nearer the farmstead. All require a beautiful, bucolic trek of 150-350 yards--ensuring the quiet, natural experience. During the day times, you may see or hear farm work. At night it's serenely quiet and lusciously dark. You'll hear owls hoot, frogs croak, crickets chirp, foxes yowl and coyotes howl! In June and July the fields and trees light up like Christmas with fireflies, and you'll see the stars. During the week is the absolute best time--the local hot spots (or cooling down spots!) are much quieter, and all our campsites have reduced weekday rates. If you can, take advantage by adding a Friday or Monday to a weekend stay. Wanna hike? We've got an awesome, easy hiking trail on adjacent land preserved by The Nature Conservancy. It meanders through woodlands, around rock ledges, through wetlands (on a 600' of boardwalk) and ends at a beautiful stream and pond with a gigantic beaver dam. Not far from here are numerous well-marked hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail (with famous Bash Bish Falls) and several offshoots (Sage's Ravine, Race Brook Falls), Bartholomew's Cobble, Umpacheenee Falls, and others). Also in the neighborhood are opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, rock climbing, off-road, gavel-road and country-road biking, snowshoeing, cc skiing and pretty much any outdoor activity/adventure opportunity. Or... you can just chill and relax, sleep, or read the day away! Love food? This is Farm-to-Table for real! Never so close--the table's AT the farm!! Bring your cooking gear and get some of our wicked fresh organic food--veggies, chops, sausages, eggs, bacon, granola, yogurt, etc. Sear yourself up a real treat! Very nearby, as the Berkshires is an alternative cultural mecca, there are also numerous entertainment opportunities from many great restaurants to art, dance, music, spas, galleries, antique shops, museums, cafes and much more. It's still amazingly quiet at the farm where the Milky Way is clearly visible.

FieldEdge--"Idaho" Site
Dominic was very responsive & helpful when booking. He was easy to communicate with and provided everything I could have asked for. Really cool person to chat with & the land itself was gorgeous. Thanks for the stay & looking forward to coming back!

Solitude with a trek
I really loved the solitude of the Pond site. But be prepared for quite a trek in. My advice would be to definitely get there before dark and don’t plan to bring too much to site. Besides the long pushes of the wheelbarrow (including the firewood) the stay was great. Dominic was a pleasure and I was grateful for the opportunity to stay at his farm. Also, some of the most gorgeous flowers I’ve ever seen grew there.

Peaceful farm life
The Pond Site was great! Pretty private, but close enough to the house for easy transport of supplies. We bought firewood for $10 which was great value. Be sure to screenshot the map provided in the images - there are instructions underneath which outline everything. We had no cell service, so preparing beforehand is a good idea. Lots of bugs, so bring some repellent!

Camping by the cow field
We had such a nice stay. Dominic was so warm and helpful. Our four year old asked Dominic a bunch of questions about the animals and Dominic so graciously answered all his questions and taught us all some new things. We stayed at the site across from the cow field, it is a serene spot.

Hidden Cabin with Farm View
A Restorative Experience
Dominic’s farm is really special. We spent three nights there and shared the cabin with our two young children and dog. We all fit perfectly and enjoyed the morning wake up calls from the animals and exploring the land. The hike nearby was also wonderful as were the ingredients we purchased at the farm. We definitely want to come back!

Camper-Van SweetSite w/views OG!
If you want to unplug, this is a good place to go. Peace and quiet was great. Porta-potty was gross and a significant distance from the RV site, especially at night. Need to come totally self sufficient or you will not do well. Recommended, but not for a novice because of the distance to the porta-potty. Campers should be well prepared. It was fun to be "off the grid" for a little while, but not for everyone. Adored the farm. Close to lots of things, something for everyone, in a way. There's a relatively short hike (1 mile hike to beautiful water fall) which is a short drive away. Great Barrington is a nice small town nearby. It's a farm, so expect mosquitoes and poison ivy ;) It was fun to be among the herd of hairy koos. We have a small camper trailer: the RV site could have been a bit bigger - it was difficult to turn around. Overall enjoyable.
