Fox Farm is located on 8 magical acres in eclectic Brattleboro, VT. Pitch your tent in a sacred private white pine forest or closer to the trail-head with access to a charcoal grill, a huge fire circle and a picnic table. If you prefer a roof over your head, check Fox Farm Cottage @ Fox Farm. Located ideally on a trail-head that leads to the West River Trail (a 36-mile scenic trail through the West River Valley – eventually linking Brattleboro, Dummerston, Newfane, Townshend, Jamaica and South Londonderry) and the West River, offering opportunities to hike, fish, swim, ski, snow shoe and bike. The Marina Bar and Restaurant is a 2 mile hike or bike ride from the camp site (via the West River Trail) and is a fun way to see the beauty of Vermont and partake in some excellent indoor/outdoor dining with views of the water. Currently there are two areas available to campers; The Pine Forest and the Council of the Elders. The Pine Forest is a shaded circular area that is very spiritual and quiet. There are currently 3 camp sites in the Pine Forest. The Council of the Elders is a more open (again circular) area that abuts The Pine Forest and has a large fire pit as it's centerpiece, surrounded by the Elder Pine trees. I have had up to 2 campers and an occasional van/camper at the Council of the Elders. I have most recently had requests to book the entire Pine Forest for guests who are traveling together and want privacy- and I do my best to work with people to accommodate any needs. Please bring your own firewood if you intend to have a fire. I offered wood to guests in the past when I was able but found that tricky to manage as there are times I myself am out of wood. There is plenty of felled wood all around as the property is surrounded by a dense forest and guests are welcome to gather that to supplement fire making. In my experience as a host, I have noted that folks come together and build mini-communities, share food, fires and is generally a positive vibe. Some come for privacy and solitude, which has not been an issue thus far. All in all the energy is upbeat and folks make friends along the way- me too! Brattleboro is a funky, hipster town with many excellent restaurants and much to see and do. For winter enthusiasts Mount Snow is a 30 minute drive and folks can cross country ski and snowshoe right from their camp sites to the 36 mile trail. The Hipcamper can expect privacy yet easy accessibility to the homeowner for tips and ideas to support a positive experience. Campers may be greeted and visited my friendly Bernese Mountain Dog's, Loki Bear and Levi!

Fox Farm Cottage
May 2024 Camping
We loved our stay at the cottage and Cindy was an amazing host. The personal touch that Cindy gives the cottage makes you feel like you’re home away from home, we will be back again.

Fox Farm Cottage
Great camp, amazing host!
My friend and i needed a getaway from it all, and picked Fox Farm for its location, charm, price, and high ratings. We're so glad we did! The cottage was incredibly comfortable and well-furnished. But it was the warm welcome Cindy gave us - with fresh flowers, a lovely fire in the firepit, and a little time to chat - that made it truly special. Nothing like concierge care to make a getaway very relaxing. We highly recommend Fox Farm Cottage!

Pine Forest Site 2
While we didn't have the opportunity to interact with our host extensively due to our short visit, we found her to be readily available when needed. In that regard, she certainly deserves commendation. However, our disappointment stemmed from the accommodations. I asked if there was water, and the host kindly offered to bring some from the house. While this gesture was thoughtful, it didn't prove to be the most convenient solution for either party involved. Moreover, our experience with the composting toilet left something to be desired. It consisted of a 5-gallon bucket, a composting bag, and a chair equipped with a toilet seat. We were informed that we could relocate it to a more secluded spot, but given the small field we were situated in, finding a truly private area was a challenge, especially in the rain. Considering the price we paid, which was $65, we had expected more in terms of facilities. It felt impractical to have to search for a suitable spot to attend to our basic needs. In summary, while this site might have been acceptable for $23, we felt somewhat disappointed and overcharged at $65. We had genuinely hoped to give a glowing review in every aspect of our stay.

Fox Farm Cottage
Wonderful Woodsy retreat
Cindy's property was so eclectic- there are a few houses and little nooks where other small cabins sprinkle the property. It is a large beautiful piece of land though and our cottage faces the woods. We only saw the other houses driving in and out. We loved how cozy and warm we could get the cottage with the small woodstove and even though it was 40 at night, our sleeping loft was very comfy. The bed (as others have reviewed) is super comfortable. We brought some food and our own dishes and utensils but loved that the cottage has a fresh water jug dispenser for drinks. Washing up dishes, if I had stayed longer would have set up a dishwashing tub, we also brought our own big jug of water for clean up, but didn't use it. I wish I had brought paper towels. The toilet situation is a plastic commode out in the yard with a bucket and composting bags - carry out your own waste policy. We had our own toilet bucket from Home Depot that we used and was more comfortable. Less breezy. The West River Trail (accessible from the property) was gorgeous with fall foliage and dramatic rocky sides.

Fox Farm Cottage
Cozy cottage
Cindy’s cottage was so charming! There were plenty of lamps and lights, not to mention a fire pit and wood stuff for the coziest atmosphere. Bed upstairs was super comfortable. All of Cindy’s recommendations for things to do and places to eat were 10/10. We did take a walk down the trail to the river, which was really pretty with the fall foliage. There is an apple orchard about a mile and half away too for more fall activities! Overall, we had a wonderful stay. A huge step above camping, even with no bathroom. Most of all, Cindy and Mark were so pleasant and kind!

Council of the Elders- Site 5
Best hipcamp we’ve ever stayed at!
We absolutely loved camping on Cindy’s land! We stayed stayed for a month and Cindy was the best host! She let us know about all the cool farmers markets and local farms/trails to check out. And she even brought us over some fresh cut hydrangeas! Her property is beautiful and very quiet so you get the most peaceful night sleep. There is more than one spot on the property, but they all have trees surrounding them so you still have plenty of privacy. We would absolutely stay again !
