The amazing von salad!

I don’t know where to start. We arrived to find a very out of the way camping area that was clean and easy to access. We joined Alex for a wonderful evening of wood fired pizza, fine refreshments and great conversation along with a few other locals who had stoped for some amazing pizza. We found out that Alex was preparing an Oktoberfest meal the next day so after seeing some of the local sites we went back for lunch. The adventure couldn’t have been better, we met some new friends and dined on a fabulous menu of authentic Bavarian cuisine prepared by Alex for the feast. We will definitely be returning!!!

Alexander was an excellent host! Super easy to communicate with and very friendly. He has a wonderful property and a barn at the front with beers on tap and pizzas in the oven on the weekend as a roadside restaurant for travelers. The location is about 15 minutes from Woodstock and right outside of Kingston, so if you ever need anything you are very close to civilization. If you are looking for something out in the wilderness, this may not be the place for you but if you want a camp feel with the security of civilization close by, then this might be great for you! The site itself is at the back of the property and backs up into a river/stream. The stream was a bit high when we were there so we couldn't sit in the water like some of the pictures.

Amazing stay at the farm

Our farm stay was amazing. We were tucked back in our own private garden. The natural beauty of the Catskills and the cute towns were all easily accessible.

Above all, Alex was an amazing host. He was so helpful, cutting back plants to make our site more accessible and giving us tons of great recommendations for the area. On weekends, he makes amazing homemade pizzas and has local brews for sale. We met all sorts of people who stopped for pizza and drinks, and enjoyed some delicious pizza and beer ourselves.

And the baby goats! Loved our stay so much.

We loved Alex’s home and campsite. He greeted us with his new puppy and showed us the campsite and property, and started a fire for us. He has baby goats! There is a nice creek behind the campsite that is perfect at sunset. There is a private entrance for a bathroom that is COVID safe. We didn’t take the opportunity but he owns property across the street where you can take a hike. We will definitely recommend his farm.

Great stay! Alex wasn’t able to be there for our arrival, but sent one iPhone videos to show us around and explain where we could camp. Very welcoming and gracious!

Alex is so great! He is just a lovely person and makes you feel very welcome on his property. The property is beautiful and so peaceful - the rooster & hen, the mama & baby goats, the nearby river, the trails through the forrest — you really get a little of everything! And if that wasn’t enough, Alex is a chef! He made us a delicious breakfast and we sat outside enjoying a beautiful morning on the farm while slammin on some good eats! Book your trip to his little oasis now - you won’t be disappointed! We will definitely be back and can’t wait to see what else he does with all his land!
