Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
Best HipCamp Massachusetts 2023 Best HipCamp USA Finalist 2023 Best HipCamp Massachusetts Finalist 2022 THERE IS WIFI, PRIVATE HOT SHOWER and FLUSH TOILET. EXCEPT FOR THE RECENTLY ADDED TULLY 'THOREAU' ISLAND. Salamander Hollow is a private, evolving honeybee and human being sanctuary on 17 acres of land abutting Massachusetts State Forest. We currently have a one-room, wood stove warmed, cozy sleeping loft for one or two - with two benches below on either side of room - for two sleeping bags; plus, a separate 22 foot Sioux tipi with two cots. There are two chairs in the tipi, which if removed at night, make floor room for four other sleeping bags. 'Forest Bathing' for miles! If you're a larger group booking Salamander Hollow main camp with its Sleeping Library, Tipi & Slovenian Beehive House, you might consider renting this additional Tiny Cabin want to entertain all in glamping style, utilizing its amenities; as well, providing another bathroom/shower and guest bedroom for those who prefer being indoors while in the great outdoors. Note that Kula Bata Tiny Cabin abuts the wheelchair accessible larger bathroom/shower which is available to those at the Salamander Hollow main camp, yet you are secluded with your own private entry points and private bathroom. A ten minute drive takes you to the parking area to hike up Tully Mountain. There is a grill, wood fired pizza oven, two fire pits and a hygienic Incinolet electric toilet on the property for night convenience, with small camp sinks for washing & teeth brushing. Take a short hike off the property to organic Chase Hill Farm for milk, eggs, seasonal veggies, grass fed meat and other goodies. Say hello to their cows, chickens, pigs, goats, pups and kids. Nestled across the road from Salamander Hollow is Timber Haven Farm, where you can schedule your pickup of bacon and eggs, while loading up on delicious Owl Energy Bars for your adventurous excursions. For those interested in the glamping side of camping, you will enjoy a remote rustic experience with a few creature comforts to keep you well read, clean and fed. Please bring your own bedding - pillows, sleeping bags, comforter, teddy bears.There is a wall mounted blue tooth car radio/CD player in Sleeping Library, so bring your pre-digital favorites. Classical CDs to listen to. Lots of eclectic books to peruse.Walkie talkies, a set of 4, are available upon request. Chess & poker sets, too. Electric 2-burner stovetop and griddle upon request. Bring fire-starters/newspaper for tinder. We suggest if you are staying more than a night or two in winter, you bring supplemental wood or we can direct you to a nearby stand. Next season, our own cut and split wood will be seasoned and available on site. We ask that you carry out trash and recyclables. An established Western facing four point sacred Medicine Wheel site being established on Askari Ridge - our name for the slope starting with the two fire pits - 'Askari' being Swahili for night guard. Here is where we envision a great touch-point area for those leading groups to be for a base-camp by day or night, where eventually a multi-use tenting platform/performance stage will be constructed for outdoor entertainment, creating an authentic 'stadium style' seating on the hill. You will see on your way up to Salamander Hollow main clearing - the Kula Bata Tiny Kabin on the left of the dirt road- now available to rent with its small guest room for two, infrared sauna, hot shower, kitchenette, dishwasher and laundry.

Kula Bata Tiny Kabin InfraRed Sauna
Stellar! Stellar experience!! If you’re having any hesitancy to book Kula Bata, this is your sign to book! This cabin had EVERYTHING—more than you’d imagine needing. Perfect if you don’t want to worry about bringing cooking essentials! The sauna was the perfect way to end a long day. The on site laundry and dishwasher was perfect. The only thing I’d recommend is bringing lots of water. They provide one carafe of drinking water because the cabin’s water sulfur-y, but if you wouldn’t prefer the smell or taste, we used about two extra jugs for a three day stay!

Tully 'Thoreau' Island 1940s Shack
Sweet Escape
My husband, Rat Terrier and I stayed for 3 nights for 4th of July. Mary is truly a treasure and so is the island. The bullfrogs sure do have a lot to say at night, you can’t help but laugh when they wake you up. If you go in the summer make sure you have bug spray, the mosquitos come out in full force at night. Having the shack to get away from the bugs was so appreciated when weren’t quite ready for bed in the tent. We loved our time and can’t wait to go back this fall!

Tully 'Thoreau' Island 1940s Shack
Had an excellent night at this site! Mary was very communicative leading up to the trip with directions, offering to give some information on the area, etc. I brought everything we needed, but the cabin was extremely well-stocked for anything we forgot. Enjoyed sitting around the firepit, and slept in the tent on the front porch which was extremely comfortable. The views were absolutely gorgeous and even with some rain, couldn't have asked for a better little getaway. Will definitely come back again!

Kula Bata Tiny Kabin InfraRed Sauna
This site is such a special place and Mary has done absolutely everything to make this a unique and serene experience for her guests. The cabin and the setting were both stunning. We loved the spa music and complimentary honey and handwritten note that greeted us upon arrival! The trails around the site are beautiful. A true getaway—I can’t wait to return. Thank you, Mary!
