As far as we know, this land has been occupied since shortly after the civil war.  It is actually two farms, combined into one around 1900. The main farmhouse was built out of the logs they cleared in 1879, and there are old foundations of the other original farm houses/barns as well.  All over the property (now woods) there are piles of stones that the original inhabitants pulled from the fields. The second farm house was built in 1901. Most of the total 240 acres were cleared pasture land at that time.  During the twenties and thirties the property was owned by an industrious couple from the City that lovingly turned it into more of a "rustic retreat"; damming a pond, planting ornamentals and upgrading the buildings.  There have been many owners over the years, but we are proud to say it has been with us the longest.  Our family bought it in 1961 and we have been trying to be good stewards ever since.  Come and visit our little patch of wilderness!

Hemlock Camp
Seclusion and tranquility
We had a great time at Margarete's Hemlock Camp. The tent is huge and water tight. We had an additional twin air mattress for our son and there was still plenty of room. When arriving at the GPS location you need to go past where it says "private land" that confused me a little bit. But Margarete was quick to answer text (once we found service, lol). She was also very quick to respond when we asked for more fire wood. Great host! Her partner Sven was very friendly too! There was a Huge thunderstorm the second night and we were snug as a bug in a rug. Just some small water leaks under the tent side/bottom. We didn't use the wood stove the 1st night, but did the second. It was much less damp that way. Would definitely recommend. The outhouse is clean (a bit far away in the dead of night for any scaredy cats like me). The walk in to the camp site is about a 1/4 of a mile. Definitely get the UTV ride in if you have any more gear than what you're carrying on your backs. The trail can be a bit muddy at some points (mud boots are a great idea). Grill was a great addition. Our son (15) loved the hammock. Bring BUG SPRAY. The area is quite wet so the skeeters are out in full force. Tiki torches helped with that. The deck the tent is built on is gorgeous as are the stairs leading up to the tent. They did an excellent job with this site. If you're looking for seclusion and tranquility this place is for you! Babbling Brook can be heard at night. The experience was lovely. Thank you!!!

10/10 amazing
Pictures don’t do it justice! Incredible. Everything went smoothly and the cabin was so clean. I would 100% recommend going here for an off-the grid retreat.

Adirondack Tiny Camp
Time alone in the wilderness
The Tiny Cabin was great. The person who built it did a great job. The scenery is terrific with the Pond and Wilderness. I heard the Coyotes every night. If you like to spend time in the woods away from everyone, Tiny Cabin is the place to be!

Hemlock Camp
A mushroom spotter’s dream
We stayed at Hemlock camp for a couple nights over July 4th. It was a lovely experience. The tent itself is huge and constructed wonderfully. The outhouse was probably the nicest one I have ever used. The site was pretty muddy due to the amount of rain the area had gotten recently. Our dogs had a great time running around checking everything out. We loved walking around the site and trails looking at all the different mushrooms growing. The only issue we had was the cart was very low on air in the tires which made the trek in a bit difficult especially since it was raining. Next time I would arrange for a ride for the load in.
