Welcome to our picturesque HipCamp nestled on a 6-acre property, adorned with an impressive expanse of three acres of stunning Maple trees. Adding to the allure, our campsite is graced by a beautifully preserved 200-year-old home that serves as an inviting inn. Campers are welcome to come by in the morning for some fresh hot coffee. Conveniently located just seven miles from Middlebury, our campsite strikes the perfect balance between enjoying the vibrant activities of the bustling college town and immersing oneself in the serene ambiance of Robert Frost country. This area holds a special place in the renowned poet's heart, as he spent 39 summers residing near the Breadloaf Campus. Nature enthusiasts will delight in our campsite's proximity to the trail system of the Green Mountain National Forest, offering a wealth of opportunities for biking, hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing. The Rikert Ski Touring Center and Middlebury College Snow Bowl are also conveniently situated nearby, ensuring easy access to exceptional winter sports facilities.

Inn or Out HipCamp: Barn Side
very simple accommodations in a beautiful tiny town right across the street from a general store. The hosts are everything you would expect of a small town bed-and-breakfast owner. The details about the shower are a bit confusing, they do charge $50 for a shower. Other than that, really nice place and nice people.

The site at Inn or Out Barnside was very idyllic and picturesque. Elizabeth was a super host and the breakfast offered at Chipman Inn was beyond excellent! The camp site was very level and private with easy access to Chipman Inn of you preferred to take advantage of their breakfast or coffee bar. It was a wonderful scenic drive up to the site and a quick 15 minutes to Middlebury for any supplies or shopping. We are definitely planning to make this site a regular stop. Chipman Inn also has superb rooms and a welcoming ambience that makes it hard to leave. We can't wait to return!!

This site is picture perfect! We appreciated the offering of hot breakfast and a relaxing morning at the Inn. The location is very convenient and was a great launching off point. We will forever remember our stay and the 2024 North American eclipse 🌑

Nestled in the charming Vermont mountains, surrounded by the vibrant fall foliage and convenient hiking trails, we couldn't have asked for a more idyllic spot. The campsite was perfect, providing level ground and ample space for RVs of all sizes. With Wi-Fi available in the Inn, we were able to stay connected while basking in the serene surroundings. However, it was the inn's amenities that truly stole the show. Relaxing by the cozy fireplace on a chilly evening, sipping a glass of wine, and engaging in delightful conversations with fellow guests made our nights memorable. Moreover, starting our days with a hearty breakfast and fresh coffee in the welcoming dining room was a wonderful way to kick off our adventures. Chapman Inn offered the perfect blend of natural beauty and cozy comforts, making it an exceptional destination in the heart of Vermont.
