Learn more about this land: ***Next Plein Air Workshop November 5th, 6th, 7th Piggy Hill Art Studio has begun something wonderfully special! A Rustic Plein Air Get Away! Spend the day painting the meadow, an old barn, an Amish school house, or go high to paint the mighty Susquehanna River below. Then spend the night around the campfire eating and chatting with your fellow artists before retiring to your tent. If you're an old pro and have art supplies (easel, paints, canvas, etc.) bring them! If not, don't fret. You can purchase your supplies here in advance when you book your stay. Your tent and camping gear, now they are up to you to bring.  This is a workshop, so you will have access to instruction. However, you are free to paint on your own. We will leave you to your own creative devices! This painting workshop is for all skill levels, from beginner to master. But even if you've never painted before and yet want to indulge that creative curiosity of yours, we are here to guide you from start to finish. Must be 18 or older

Great family weekend
Had a great time with friends - our children loved meeting the animals, fishing in the pond and crossing back and forth across the stream.

Delightful stay
Very friendly and accommodating. We had an entire field to ourselves. There was a mixup with our whoopie pies order and the host family bakes us cookies! We were blown away by this gesture and their friendliness. Would stay here again. The animals and river were a delightful touch for the kids.

Quiet, peaceful, and location!
Piggy hill was wonderful! The hosts (and their animals:) were kind, responsive, and accommodating, and the location is fantastic - several minutes away from Susquehanna State Park by car (or a short bike ride or medium walk), a quick drive to the river islands, and there are a variety of other places and activities nearby that we didn't have time to explore (pumpkin picking, apple picking, pony rides...). The site we stayed on was very simple - just a lawn and a fire pit - but it worked for us! There are creekside sites too, close to each other and next to an extremely quiet road and a very small creek (not the one in the photos). Next time, we'll bring lawn chairs and maybe some friends! Unique highlights: Bacon, the sweetest cat ever, two of the most gentle horses I have ever met, eggs and Amish pastries available for order (HIGH quality whoopie pies!), serene rolling hills and farm land.

Stayed at site 1 with my 6yo boy in a roof top tent. Site was very nice. My 6yo boy enjoyed the stream, the animals and the scenery. Susquehannock state park is a short bike ride away. I highly suggest the baked goods, they are very good. Would stay again. Nice little spot.

We stayed at site #5, Hurricane Delta brought in a ton of rain both nights were booked but and thankfully Lora offered to let us set up in the loft in the barn above the horses where we were able to stay dry. It was quite an experience to remember but we were still able to start a campfire and make the best of it. My son really loved checking out all the animals on the farm. And the state park is super close. But we were thrilled to find other things to do given the bad weather

This place was magical!! Service is a bit spotty, but Lora was very communicative and responsive. Maryanne, Lambert, Tinkerbell and Inky were wonderful hosts as well, and SUPER friendly. Our site (#3) was the best for us to be the most secluded and we were closest to the creek which made for a lovely sound to go to sleep to. The baked goods are a MUST especially the cinnamon rolls! Our site was not super private, but well-spaced from the others. The only thing to note would be that the only toilet option is at Susquahannock State Park which is up the road. It is a short drive and a nice walk, but keep that in mind when booking! Overall my girlfriends and I have a wonderful time. We explored the property as well as the State Park that is full of well maintained trails. Would absolutely recommend and stay here again!
