This is a 1920's cottage that we moved and restored. The building site is an old Charchoal mound that was in use in the 1700's so there is a lot of history between the building and site where it sits. It's a beautiful spot right on the water, tranquil and full of wild life' we I built this cabin for the quiet enjoyment of our natural world. This is a place to unwind and reconnect. We have just added a 10*12 platform tent to accomodate an extra couple or for more space for older families with teenagers. This is still 1 site, tent just gives a few options if needed.

Yurt By The The Berkshires

1 site · Lodging4 acres · Stephentown, NY
Situated on land that is right by the southern access road to Cherry Plain State Park with it's own private stream running through it.   Get away from it all and immerse yourself in nature. Learn more about this land:This is an off grid yurt. Think camping... with an outhouse and a stream for washing dishes but no running water or electricity. You'll have a comfy bed and futon. If it rains it's a welcome excuse to hang out in the yurt, not a ruined weekend. Staying inside, listening to the rain and playing games is a highlight of our trips there rather than a reason to reschedule. Rain on the yurt sounds incredible. Though cooking outside and enjoying a campfire & toasting marshmallows is also fun! The space The yurt sits on our 4 acres of woods right near the southern access road to Cherry Plain State Park. A stream runs through the middle of the property and you can see and hear it from the yurt. If you cross the stream the woods on the other side are on a hill and it's really fun to explore the boulders and woods over there with kids. There is a beautiful lake in the park with a playground and swimming beach. You can rent boats there, too. There are also showers and bathrooms there that you can use during the summer season. You can hike there... 2-3 miles (a lot uphill) over a kind of rough dirt road - while you can drive on that road you may want to drive the alternate 15 minute route around on paved roads if you don't have high clearance on your car. There is no cell service at the yurt but you can get a signal if you walk a few minutes up the road towards the park. 1) The yurt does not have electricity or running water. We have a small portable power supply that can charge phones and run a light. It'll get you through the weekend doing that sort of thing but can't run heavier appliances. There is a small bluetooth Bose speaker there that you can use to play music. And an acoustic guitar to make your own! 2)There is an outhouse with a composting toilet. We also have a small portable potty that can be used in the yurt (ideally for liquids only). We can provide you with a privacy tent for that, which you could put in the yurt if you like (let us know if you'd like that as we'd have to bring it out). You're also only an 8 minute drive from a Cumberland Farms with a nice bathroom. :) 3) We have a 2 burner camp stove that you can use out in the woodshed or in the yurt. We'll set it up in the shed for you but feel free to bring it inside if you don't want to go out to make coffee or tea in the morning. We have a small kettle and pour over coffee maker or Aeropress that can be used for making coffee. There is also a fire pit and we have cast iron cookware that you can use to cook over that. 4) We will provide you with a 5 gallon jug of water for the outdoor kitchen area. Dishes, etc. can be taken down and washed in the stream. We'll provide a sponge and environmentally friendly soap. Please don't use soap on the cast iron pans as it will remove their finish and rust them. 5) We can provide a cooler if you don't have one but there is not yet a refrigerator out there. We'll be getting one that runs off propane for the small kitchen we'll be installing inside the yurt but that and the wood stove won't be there until the fall. You'll need to pick up ice for your cooler. 6) In addition to the bed and the futon there is a folding card table and chairs and bunch of games. Let us know if there's anything in particular you like to play and we can try to provide it if we have it at home. Guest access The yurt has it's own private drive. Other things to note Because we're near the park and it is a nature lover's paradise, you do get a fair number of ATVs riding past the property. Their motors are loud. Sometimes they go by in the middle of the night. They are harmless and friendly in our experience but can wake you up if you or your kids aren't sound sleepers. It's not a constant stream of them or anything like that but you'll usually have a group go by a few times a day and like I said, sometimes in the middle of the night. There is no cell service at the yurt but you can get a signal if you walk a few minutes up the road towards the park.

The best camping near Cherry Plain State Park guide

Overview

About

This intimate and secluded 175-acre state park features a sandy beach on Black River Pond. Hiking, biking and nature trails make it a peaceful alternative to other regional parks. Bridle paths provide enthusiastic equestrians with a quiet, wooded haven just 3 hours from Manhattan. The fishing is great here, with anglers landing bass, bullheads, and pickerel. Rent a boat, and drop your line.

In the winter, recreational adventures include ice fishing and cross-country skiing. The Capital District Wildlife Management Area surrounds the park. This gives visitors easy access to another 4,153 acres of forested land for restorative outdoor pursuits.

Located in Cherry Plain near the Massachusetts border, the park offers 10 lakeside tent sites, 10 trailer sites, and 10 "hike-in" tent sites for camping. A bathhouse and comfort station let campers tend to their needs, but it's also a great place to hang for the day.
