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.

Mary was absolutely epic. She went out of her way to let us know about the details of the property, nearby places of interest, and things to do. The property was very well maintained, beautiful, and everything was as great as one could possibly hope for. Zero surprises that we'll return sometime soon in spring.

Cabin
The cabin had all the basics we needed. Mary provides towels, linens, kitchenware, cookware, an outdoor grill, soap and shampoo, body wash, hand cream, a washer and dryer, dishwasher, small fridge, a blue tooth speaker, and more amenities to help you bring only the bare necessities to stay comfortaly. There's plumbing and electicity, we found the plug in electric radiators to sufficiently warm the space comfortably. Sometimes it's nice to get away and not have to pack a lot of things and spend time on just "being" in the space. We went Saturday-Monday, it was cloudy, 28 degrees at night and 40s during the day, some rain, muddy, but all in all we were able to get in a 3 hour hike in the forest from the back of the property when the rain broke, we also used the infrared sauna, cooked a nice meal, and just had some slow time with our pup, who also enjoyed running around freely. There's no TV, but we did bring a tablet to stream a movie one night, the cabin has Wi-Fi, which we appreciated. We went to Chase Hill Farm up the road and bought some meats and cheese to have over the weekend, I definitely recommend stopping in this tiny farm store to pick up some items, it was set up for you to grab items, write them down on the paper and leave cash in the cash box, they also had a CC reader if needed. Mary is just a very kind and compassionate person, even though we never physically met, she made herself very available and offered much helpful information to us, which we were🙏

Modern amenities in the woods
We had a great two night stay in this tiny house, new with all the amenities you’d want in a tiny space. We used the hiking trails off the property as well as nearby ones including Mt Tully and Mt Grace.
