A fantastic location made all the better by the ease of check-in and check-out. The venue is more spacious than expected. We were worried about November's cold, but the wood stove works fantastic and the barn is in much better condition than expected. The record player is a huge plus!

Great Stay in the Upper Meadow!
We easily hauled our 14ft Bean Trailer teardrop into this upper meadow. Pretty level site, space to maneuver / turnaround. Delightful open views to east & south, great viewing of moonrise and sunrise. We want to return during foliage season next time. Cold water shower & composting toilet on-site. Good separation between sites. 2-3 bars LTE cell service. Plus we got invited to be part of making & enjoying pizza at the host's outdoor oven.

Talk about a view!
We had an amazing time camping here! The view was absolutely gorgeous, both for the sunrise and sunset. The campsite had an outdoor open shower and toilet, as well as a swing and fire pit. They were even making brick oven pizzas, which was the perfect end to the day! Hope to be back soon!!

Beautiful Vermont
We camped in the farthest off site as there was a Halloween party happening that night. It was a lovely view, but you probably need to be driving a pick up or suv to get up there. Host was very nice, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again!

Another great hip camp stay
Our second stay at Mike’s place and it was as beautiful as the last time. Privacy and peaceful surroundings with spectacular views. Being here in the fall made it all the more beautiful. We highly recommend checking it out!

So glad we found this place!
One of the best places we’ve camped. Views were AMAZING, Mike was so nice, just a perfect getaway. Very quiet, lots of space for my kids to run around. They loved the rope swing and seeing the chickens run around. It was truly perfect for us, and had everything we needed.

Such an awesome getaway!
Mike was such a great host and his property is stunning. When we arrived we were first greeted by his chickens, which was so awesome! He has a great area for us to set up camp, along with a picnic table, chairs, and a fire pit all next to a lovely pond. We were able to get a whole wheel barrow of wood for $12 much better then a lousy 4 pieces of wood for the store. Mike was very welcoming and accommodating, we would totally stay here again!

Hidden gem!
Mike’s property was an awesome place to camp for a fall foliage weekend! We had a beautiful grassy field overlooking a mountain ridge all to ourselves. Mike’s family made pizza for us in their backyard pizza oven on Saturday evening and it hit the spot. We hope to be back again next year. Thanks Mike!

Huge and super private campsites
Gorgeous campground! Huge lots for each campsite and so private. Views of rolling Vermont mountains. I camped here in fall and the colors were gorgeous. There’s brick oven pizza at the main house. So so good! The family that runs it is so warm and sweet. They also make maple at the farm.

Gorgeous Campsite
I loved camping on Mike's land. The views and the site itself were perfect. Watching the sunset and sunrise were highlights but so were all the other animals. His dog was so sweet. Mike was really friendly and had fresh eggs and firewood available to buy. Lake Shaftsbury is right across the street and there was plenty of hiking around. He even gave me a few suggestions. Can't wait to come back again and try the pizza oven!

Fantastic stay!
Mike created a beautiful refuge to enjoy nature at best while having a decent level of comfort. We arrived on a rainy day and he was very forthcoming and kind. Had a great stay and can highly recommend to everyone else.

Mike's property is amazing. You can tell he put work into making the campsite more private. He is attentive to any questions you have. Additionally, there is a state park across the street that is small but beautiful. I got to paddleboard there at sunset. It was lovely. Highly recommend Mike's property.

Weekend in a Barn
We had a fairy tale weekend staying in Mike's Barn! The property is stunning and welcoming. We watched the moon rise from behind a mountain while laying in a flower-filled meadow, played with Harvey (Mike's perfect golden retriever), awoke to the sounds of roosters in a field, and danced in a furnished barn to Grateful Dead on vinyl (Mike has a massive collection of records free to use). No, I'm not describing a montage from your childhood rom-coms. This was our actual weekend. The only thing to be aware of is that the bathrooms are pretty primitive. We had a tiny outhouse with a pit toilet and no running water, just sanitizer, and there were other exposed outdoor toilets at some of the other rental sites. While it may be your dream to crap on a throne in a field of flowers while overlooking the Green Mountains, others might not want to be surprised with the accomodations. Besides for that, the weekend was spent in paradise.

Lovely Little Farm
Absolutely loved our tiny cabin and the surrounding farm. There was no car noise nor any major roads at all, which has been a problem at other sites we've stayed at. We and our dogs had a great time. The cabin was cute and comfortable. It was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you!

Fantastic stay
We had a fantastic time at Mike’s farm. Our camping spot had a beautiful view, it was quiet, private, and very peaceful. The brick oven pizza made by Mike’s sons was amazing, and the lake (3 min drive away) with swimming and boat rentals was also a nice surprise. Getting to hang out with Sassy the cat was great too. Highly recommended!

Wish I was staying longer!
Mike was a fantastic host. I spotted him on my way in to the site, and got recommendations about local stores and eateries. The site was perfectly maintained, and exceeded my expectations. It’s a gorgeous property, and was easily accessible in summer with a Subaru Forester. I was only there for one rainy night, in between travel destinations. I would gladly come back for a few days, and really take advantage of the serenity of this magical spot.

We had a great time staying on Mike's land! This was our first time using Hipcamp and don't think we will ever go back to a traditional campsite again! We loved the privacy. The site was beautiful - an amazing view! The shower was refreshing and the toilet area was clean. Mike was super easy to communicate with. We used the pizza oven one night and rented supplies and bought dough. Mike gave us a little tutorial ahead of time and the pizza's came out great. It was also in a great area, close to a lot of great Vermont hidden gems. Would definitely go back.

Peaceful Playful Beauty!
We were honored to be able to visit and rest our heads at such a cool place. Mike was an absolute gem, who was incredibly helpful at showing us around and letting us in on a couple local treasures. From the playful chickens to the groovy westfalias and the serene spring-kissed mountainside, it was truly a place to behold. Sweet cats 100/10 would recommend! Having electricity was also lovely :)

Stayed in the coop one night and the barn the next! Loved them both..wish I had more time to take in all the barn has to offer! Enjoyed the record player (Mike has a great taste in music)! Took a peaceful morning run to Shaftsbury State park from the site..perfect! And Make sure you drink some of that delicious spring water !
