It all started on a first date in Boston....Nick had to excuse himself to take a phone call. His cow had fled its pasture. Much to Tara's surprise in that moment, this man she had just met was finishing his engineering degree at Northeastern, but was simultaneously building a homestead in Vermont. Fast forward 7 years, and here we are, building the life we only dreamed of. We yearned for simplicity. Deeper connections to our surroundings and mother nature. A calmer sense of place. The satisfaction that comes from growing food. Creating with our hands. We're a working farm and homestead. Every day at Quarry Brook is a new adventure, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re incredibly excited to share our little corner of southern Vermont and what we’re up to with you!

Geodesic Dome at Quarry Brook
Heaven
This was a dream! It was everything it looks like in the website and more. The hosts were wonderful, respectful and excellent. There was a lot of really great hard dry wood for us to burn. It was the definition of hygge to be there. Comfortable chair, fresh clean drinking water, very clean facilities. Hiking trails nearby, check out the Putney diner! Absolute heaven to be at this geodesic done. thank you to Tara for opening her home and her property up to us. .

We had great warm fall weather that made our stay at the dome lovely. Bed was comfortable, site had everything we needed to cook and trails to wander on and salamanders to see. Would recommend- I think we may consider a trip in the late summer!

Cabin Retreat at Quarry Brook
Very charming little cabin w/ private fire pit. Falling asleep/ waking up with the scenic view from the loft bed was a bonus. Pleasant hike to a nearby quarry and swimming hole. Loved our stay!

Dome with the pup
The dome experience was fabulous. Just make sure you don't let the stove go out in the middle of the night. A chilly surprise. We loved exploring the trails with the pup and reading inside by the cozy fire when some rain moved through. Highly recommend.

We very much enjoyed our short stay at the campsite. The area is quiet and private but close to the owner’s house so doesn’t feel too removed. Tara and nick were easy to get ahold of for any questions/concerns and left a large pile of fire wood which was much appreciated. The walk to the site from where we parked was only about 2 mins, very easy to get our stuff in and out. Highly recommend versus a state site where you are close to everyone else without much privacy.

This was a great, private, secluded little spot. Great value to have the guarantee of a spot. There is a wonderful waterfall swim nearby (on East Putney falls), and an amazing farm produce stand (walker farm) nearby. The family are lovely. Fully recommend getting a stack of wood. There is a lovely fire circle, there’s a picnic table, and the tree cover provides great protection from light rain. Set in a lovely part of Vermont. Would totally recommend for camping enthusiasts. Great value.

Overall this a sweet little campsite and lovely property to visit in the Putney area. The camp site was within a grove of hemlocks and well shaded but a steep little jaunt down into the forest from the parking area so not that convenient for carrying gear back n' forth unless you use a backpack or have a way to haul everything in one go. There was a wheel burrow near the gardens but I wasn't sure if that was for the hipcamp site or personal use of family property owners. The quarry site was really neat but the trail to it wasn't clearly marked so we got a bit turned around a few times winding back out to the housing area as it seems there are a few different side trails that lead out to the main quarry trail from our campsite. It's probably about a twenty minute hike if you don't get lost and it's best to get over there earlier in the day if you want to take advantage of the sunshine. We did find our host to ask more specific directions as getting a bit confused. The quarry site itself is smaller than it looks in the pictures and more like a pond than a small lake w/ creek flowing into as the images suggest. All this being said, we really enjoyed the site and were so pleased to have nice place to take a dip after a hot travel day! Great price for a unique hip camp site!

Nice spot! The spot itself is isolated in the woods. Be prepared for some mosquitoes. Don't miss the lovely quarry for swimming.

Beautiful campsite w/ quarry access
We had the best time on Tara and Nick's property! The campsite is very secluded, but very easy to access. We came after dark and had no problems getting to it. There was an pop up outhouse, plenty of firewood, grates for the fire, and a potable water jug waiting for us when we got there, which was so very appreciated! We brought our dog and he had a wonderful time. It was so lovely to be in the nature for a long weekend. The best part of it all was the quarry! It is about a 15 minute walk down a trail that is well marked and easy to follow. At the quarry, there’s a picnic area with a grill and a beach volleyball court. The water was wonderful to swim in and we had so much fun exploring and goofing around! I would definitely recommend this site to anyone and I would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you for having us!

One of our favorite summer areas to visit and such a fine place to glamp! Bring a cooler to the quarry and relax for an afternoon, you really can’t beat it. Once again we did not meet our great hosts but we can’t complain about the privacy :)

I stayed here for a night tent camping. It was so nice and peaceful and I had the best sleep I’ve had in weeks. As a solo female I felt very safe in this area and I would definitely come back!

Vermont perfection!
Great spot in Southern Vermont...really tucked away and private. This dome is...well...just very cool! We especially love the blend of luxury when in the dome and plain hard-core camping outside. You can show up with the clothes on your back and some food and beverages...they have everything you need to be a camper!

We had the best time relaxing in the GeoDome with our two furbabies! The space was so cute and Nick and Tara do a great job having things ready for your arrival! If you come in the winter, bring extra blankets to cozy up with :)

A lovely little getaway. Everything was as described. Easy to access. Clean. We enjoyed the hike to the quarry but wish we brought our ice skates! Next time! The Putney Mountain 🌄 hike was also very pleasant (we did a 5.2 mile loop). In addition to delicious Vermont water being provided, there were utensils, a French press, etc available for use. Thanks again for sharing the space! - Sabrina and Tim

We capped off another trip around the sun, in proper fashion, with a peaceful and relaxing stay at this unique location! It was clean, incredibly cozy & comfortable. No better place to connect and reflect. There's plenty to explore nearby and a friendly community vibe. Thank you to hosts Tara & Nick! - J & E
