Della Terra Retreat

· Castorland, Lewis, New York
Hosted by Julian M.
Rustic remnants of aged farm equipment mark the history of this property. A small, stone-formed wall segments parts of the woodland, creating imagery of how the landscape was used in the past. Now the land is used for a small organic farm endeavor. Our vision is to incubate and foster the innate connection that humanity has with nature, providing an environment that detaches individuals from the fast paced humdrum of a world filled with distractions. Learn more about this land: My wife and I moved to North Country New York, after living in NYC. We started a small-scale, bio-intensive farm in 2017. Depending on the season of your trip, you will be able to experience our farm operations, and reap the benefits of the harvest. We have 5.25 acres of land, which is 3 acres woodland, and about 2.25 acres of open meadow.  There are multiple sites to pitch a tent in the woods. There are areas that I am designating for small cabin structures, which will be built this year. We could accommodate a small RV, or pop-up camper.  We also have a 12'x24' cabin. There is a small oven and a propane grill for cooking. There is solar power, which provides electricity needs. We use Luci Lamps for lighting. They are inflatable, solar-powered lights, made by Mpowerd. Overall, our property is nestled in a very rustic/rural enclave. The property is on a road that is 5 miles long, which only has about 18 houses on it. I find the environment to be extremely serene and rejuvenating.

Della Terra: Small Organic Farm
Convenient for a one night stay
We stayed here as a one night stop on our way to Lake Placid. The area is beautiful and we hiked the Whetstone Gulf Trail before setting up camp. Initially we were a little confused on the boundaries of Julian’s property, but he responded timely to clarify. The farm is a bit overgrown but Julian told us this ahead of time. We made a fire by the cabin (firewood was provided), explored the woods (you’ll find some old farm equipment and an abandoned house), and set up the tent to sleep by the farm.
