Best HipCamp Massachusetts 2022 Finalist 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! THERE IS WIFI, PRIVATE HOT SHOWER and FLUSH TOILET. 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.

Much needed tree time
This was my second time at Mary's place. There are great trails that leave right from the cabin. I wandered for hours with my dog and never saw another person. BTW, who ever came up with the name "Tiny" Cabin has never seen my dorm room junior year. It was smaller than just the bathroom of the cabin. The cabin has plenty of room and is stocked with everything that you might need. Mary is super kind and very responsive. If you're looking to find peace and solitude, this is the perfect place.

Beautiful hidden gem in the woods.
This was a lovely experience! There were too many enjoyable things to do - from Big Apple Farm (Mary's recommendation of an awesome nearby brewery/store/petting zoo) to local hiking and views, to the lovely cabin and property. Mary's little touches in the cabin made it such a great stay, and she was very accommodating when our hotel canceled last minute. We found this spot and DEFINITELY will be back, with friends!

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin! It was a lot quieter than expected (coming from someone who lives in the woods) but it was a great getaway spot for a few days. The cabin was super clean and well cared for. Mary took the time to send me info on the camp and cabin that we stayed in and she was super kind and helpful. I left the cabin with a nice free gift of local honey and it was delicious!!

This place was amazing! My husband and our dog stayed here for a quick overnight stay and absolutely loved it. The tipi is fantastic and extremely comfortable. We stayed up late enjoying the fire and really appreciated the chairs, cots, and the ambiance inside of it (charming and romantic). All the little details - the music waiting for us when we arrived, the setting in the covered eating area with the pizza oven, the lights on in the tipi and library - truly made for a truly lovely experience. The lights around the koi pond made was a great touch as well. Bathroom was clean and beautiful as well - worth the walk over. Our dog had a blast too! I could talk forever about this place. We are already planning our return trip and will probably make this one of our go-to places!

Cool weekend trip
We had a lot of fun at this property. It was very remote which was nice. The tipi was cozy, the pizza oven was really cool. It was our first time using one so our pizza didn’t really work out but it was fun to try.

Hidden gem
What a great little gem. We came to just relax and spend some time making pizza and talking. Definitely need to stay more than a night to relax and unwind. Not to far from civilization but far enough to get away. Mary responded to my messages no matter time of day. We will return. No need to keep looking book here while you have the date! Even though I would like to keep it a secret place it's too cute not to share.

Cozy, Beautiful Home Away From Home
My wife and I loved our time at Kula Bata Kabin. As much as we would like to keep this rustic paradise our own little secret, I feel a need to shout it out to the rooftops about our amazing stay. We stayed for five nights in late October. We loved that access to trails starts right at your doorstep. We're avid fire pit lovers and the sauna was perfect after the crisp fall evenings; it'll be hard to now go without. The cabin is well maintained and comes with everything you need. Mary is one of the best hosts we've had on our annual cabin vacations. She's friendly and provides great information ahead of time, and throughout our stay, as needed. I highly recommend staying here, and we will definitely be back.

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend camping. The tippi hut was really neat. The pizza oven was a lot of fun. We each made our own pizzas and it was a blast. The library was nice and cozy. Mary’s directions were great and she gave several notes on hiking trails and other fun things to do in the area. She responded right away to any questions we had

This place is AMAZING!! Mary is a great host and the environment is absolutely magical. It’s a total treat to escape to this relaxing forest environment. There’s lots to see and do, or you can just kick back and enjoy the fire pit and cabin. PS the honey was fabulous!!

At first, we were surprised by the bathroom for other campers attached to our private cabin, but our trip did prove to be very secluded and peaceful. The cabin is charming and equipped with all you need. The water is a bit smelly, but being able to do dishes and laundry in the middle of nowhere is pretty sweet!

Bees, honey, pizza…and a tipi too!
Mary’s property is serene, sacred, and sublime. She is an unparalleled host, communicative and welcoming yet hands off. Now that I’ve discovered this little patch of zen, I don’t ever want to stay elsewhere. The best glamp/camping experience I’ve ever had. Recommend 100%. Thank you Mary & Ingo!!

Peaceful getaway with my pup 🐾
So peaceful! Perfect getaway with my pup. Mary has thought of everything to make this a true retreat from the everyday. Cabin smells of fresh wood and vaguely of calming essential oils. Extremely clean, new, and everything you need for two (including in the kitchen). Firepit in backyard surrounded by forest is beautiful. Sauna was amazing after a hike up Mt. Grace (5 min away, highly recommend the “long” loop- my dog and I loved it!). Fresh honey left for us upon arrival. I stayed at the tipi and forest library right up the road from the cabin last year and loved that experience, too. This is definitely a special spot not to be missed!

The site is a special place. Cozy amenities, thoughtful details and a spectacular night sky. The surrounding community offers amazing artisan cheese (perfect with Mary’s honey!) and a serene landscape full of wildlife. Our family will definitely return.

The space was very healing. The small koi pond. The salamander and notes everywhere was so cool. I need to go back to discover the long path, only did the short one because of time and weather. The cabin was so clean, smelled of cedar and aromatherapy. Nice shower and sauna was a great relaxing self care moment. Mary is always available via text if needed. Felt safe and needed the quiet space for a few days. Could have stayed longer! Thank you for creating such a healing space 🙏

What a great and unique place! Dog friendly! The pups had a blast. Mary was super helpful with surrounding amenities and hike recommendations. This place was adorable and the tipi was amazing. Very happy to have stayed here! Next time I think I'll bring more people and rent the tiny cabin and salamander hollow library to have the whole place!

Very cozy, secluded little spot. Pretty much everything you need. Fires at night are really pleasant and the sauna is very relaxing. Great to go from the sauna into the brisk night air. Not a ton of stuff in the immediate vicinity so bring in whatever supplies you might need, especially potable water.

Cozy retreat
Our one night stay was too short for all the comforts and adventures this tucked-away gem has to offer. The cabin was perfectly appointed with everything you need and decorated to create a feeling of warmth and peace. I didn’t realize how much I needed this peaceful retreat until I felt myself utterly relaxed in less than an hour after arriving. We’ll be back for more!

Glamping
We loved the privacy and the fact that the dog could be off leash. We went hiking on the trails out back, made s’mores in the tipi, slept in the library with our baby and made an amazing pizza in the pizza oven! Awesome place. Definitely coming back for another family trip.

Magical land of relaxation
This spot has everything you’ll need to comfortably entertain medium sized groups. This was our 2nd annual visit with 6 adults, 3 littles, and 2 dogs. Looking forward to next years visit! Amenities galore or you can kick it old school in the classic tee-pee.
