They are both part German Shepherd, so they are protective. They will bark at you but are not aggressive. Let us know if you're not comfortable with dogs and we can make sure they are inside when you arrive. I am not able to accommodate RVs or trailers. I have a very long, skinny driveway with no way to turn around, and there is nowhere to to park something as large as a trailer. The camp site is not accessible by car. You'll have to park in the driveway and then bring your gear back to the site, which is about a 2 minute walk. All vehicles must be parked in the driveway. We do have a wagon if you need it to carry your gear. We have animals on the property, including roosters who start crowing at sun up. Plan on being up early :)Enjoy your stay in our 12'x14' outfitter tent equipped with a queen luxury air mattress, day bed, camping & cooking amenities, and a wood stove for winter heat.

Permaculture Homestead Glamping
Such a magical piece of paradise! Thomas and Niki stock the place with all necessary equipment to have a fully equipped off grid experience on a beautiful farm. Made a fire in the wood stove at night to stay cozy. Our dog loved hanging out with the chickens too! We would definitely recommend to anyone travelling through this beautiful area.

Peaceful rest between Adirondacks and the southern tier. Well appointed, clean and stayed cozy on a snowy March night with the woodstove and firewood provided. Highly recommend!

Perfect family getaway!
We picked Thomas’s place due to its proximity to the Herkimer Diamond Mines and the Adirondack Mountains and this place did not disappoint! The property is absolutely beautiful and we were welcomed to walk around and check it out. The tent is huge and has a very comfortable queen size bed, along with a daybed that has a pull out trundle bed. My husband, myself and our 13 year old and 11 year old kids fit comfortably and slept well while there. The hosts were very responsive and available for questions or issues, but were not at all intrusive. We chatted with them a few times, but other than that, they let us have our privacy. The guest area is very private. You can see the house from the campsite, but there are gardens and pastures in between to add privacy. We stayed for 3 nights and despite it raining the majority of one of the days, we still had a wonderful time. We played chess (a few games and books are supplied in the tent) and read books. It was so relaxing listening to the rain fall on the tent; we all had the best nights sleep that night! The site is well equipped with everything that we needed; not having to set up and take down our own tent was definitely a big plus too! There is a short walk from the parking area to the tent, maybe 2 minutes, that you will have to carry all of your stuff, but it’s not a big deal at all. I am already planning my next getaway here. I can’t wait to return!!! Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

Permaculture Homestead Glamping
Beautiful area; directions to the site was very helpful- was in awe how big of garden in the area and animals was so sweet. Host offered us wagon to carry our heavy cooler- and was very quick to reply any questions we had. During our stay it rained so hard but I thought it was so perfect just to stay inside tent and play games. Middle of night when rain let up; saw field full of fireflies. RECOMMEMDED for anyone who loves nature.
