Welcome to Central Pennsylvania! Our farm shows up on some of the oldest maps of the area. The oldest deed for the property dates to the 1850s, but we believe the house was originally built prior to 1800. Our neighbors tell stories passed down through generations of civil war era farmers hiding their livestock in the gully of our woods, out of sight from opposing troops who could steal them. A short six miles from the square of historic colonial York, PA, we have the best of both worlds - modern conveniences nearby, but privacy, seclusion and a "middle of nowhere" feel. Come explore Colonial York! Our city was the birthplace of the Articles of Confederation and it was here that the words “The United States of America” were first conjured up. We have 10 acres (8 pastured and 2 wooded) to explore. Our family lives on-site in the old stone farmhouse and will be closeby to answer any questions / assist as needed. Upon arrival, feel free to go right to the site. If you prefer to meet up upon arrival, we can arrange that as well. We offer two campsites, both on top of two separate hills, with a shared space restroom and full kitchen in the middle (the poolhouse). The poolhouse is relatively close in proximity to our home (just FYI). A;so, please note, we live a few miles from Rt. 83 and the faint buzz of highway noise can be heard when all else is silent at night. No RVs or large campers, please. Tents and small single vehicles like vans or truck campers are fine. The grass paths to the sites are fairly steep. Site 1 is more level, larger, and the path is not as steep. If you have a van or truck bed camper, please choose Site 1. More info about the sites - Site 1: The Hilltop. This site offers great views of the entire property. It is a semi-private open field site with no tree coverage or shade. You can see our neighbor's house from the site, but it is separated by a patch of woods. There is a run-in horse shed for shelter if desired. Site includes a fire pit. You may park your car(s) anywhere in the grass. Toilet/shower access: You have full access to the Pool house which includes a full kitchen (refrigerator with freezer, oven, microwave, kitchen sink, cabinet space for storage, trash can) and bathroom (shower stall, toilet, and bathroom sink). Help yourself to anything in the poolhouse (if there's food/drinks in the fridge) and if you want a respite from the campsite, feel free to use the TV and Nintendo 64. From approximately May to September, you're welcome to enjoy the pool at your own risk (no lifeguard on duty). Please note, we have two campsites total, so other campers may also be using the poolhouse and pool. Potable water can be found in the poolhouse tap (it comes from our deep well). Feel free to use the Brita filter in the fridge if you'd like.Site 2: The Woodshed. This site offers great views of our garden and is flanked by a gorgeous row of evergreens that make the most stunning silhouette background at sunset. This is a semi-private open field site with no tree coverage. You can see our neighbor's houses from the site, but they are separated by treelines. You have access to our run-in-horse-shed-turned-woodshed. Help yourself to firewood and take cover from the elements in case of wet weather. Site includes a fire pit. You may park your cars anywhere in the grass near the site (note, there is a steep hill to drive up). Nota bene - site not accessible by car in the snow, but you can park near the big barn in case of snow and site is a 1 minute walk from the big barn. Toilet/shower access: You have full access to the Pool house which includes a full kitchen (refrigerator with freezer, oven, microwave, kitchen sink, cabinet space for storage, trash can) and bathroom (shower stall, toilet, and bathroom sink). Help yourself to anything in the poolhouse (if there's food/drinks in the fridge) and if you want a respite from the campsite, feel free to use the TV and Nintendo 64. From approximately May to September, you're welcome to enjoy the pool at your own risk (no lifeguard on duty). Please note, we have two campsites total, so other campers may also be using the poolhouse and pool. Potable water can be found in the poolhouse tap (it comes from our deep well). Feel free to use the Brita filter in the fridge if you'd like.Vegetation and Landscape: -Our farm is hilly! Walking from the campsite to the poolhouse and back is a steep grade, please be warned. Even the fittest are guaranteed to be winded after the climb :) -Scour the woods for native plants. We have large pawpaw groves and many native nut trees. In the spring and summer, forage for edible 'weeds' like lambsquarters (wild spinach) and red dead nettle. -We practice sustainable land management! We don't use any lawn treatment chemicals. Rest assured that if you find an edible plant, you can eat it. -We have multiple springs on our property and in the rain, things can get pretty soggy in the valley.Noteworthy nearby places to explore: -York, PA (6 miles) - ask us about our favorite coffeeshops! Visit the historic Central Market, Colonial Complex, one of our great breweries or restaurants! See a York Revolution baseball game! -Marietta, PA (18 miles) - this charming rivertown is well worth a day trip. Bike the Northwest River trail, hike the Chickies Rock overlook trail, and end your day at one of the local pubs. We think you'll feel the magical pull of this place as soon as you enter. For a real treat, visit during the Christmas Candlelight Tours (usually the first weekend in December) -Lancaster, PA (25 miles) - the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Visit a working Amish farm, one of the many roadside markets (grab a whoopie pie!), and many hip bars/restaurants downtown! Just ask us for a recommendation! -Gettysburg, PA (38 miles) - Just an hour away, history is beckoning you. Walk or drive the battlefields, or visit one of the gorgeous apple orchards or vineyards in the area. Ask us about our favorite route. Fun fact, we once walked US Rt. 30 from West York to Gettysburg! It ended in a very bad sunburn and very great memories. -Baltimore, MD (52 miles) - visit Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium, or the Walters Art Museum (some of our favorite things to do in Bmore!) -Philadelphia, PA (102 miles) - Continue your Revolutionary War tour to visit Independence Hall, The Liberty Bell, and so much more!For hiking, biking, and running, check out the following: -Northwest River Trail -Heritage County Rail Trail -Enola Low Grade Trail -Mason Dixon Trail -Appalachian Trail at Pine Grove Furnace State Park -Lake Williams and Lake Redman (William H. Kain Park) -Rocky Ridge Trail -Nixon ParkFor families and kids: -Hershey Park and Chocolate World -Dutch Wonderland -Nixon Park Nature Center -Turkey Hill Experience -Crayola Factory -Dorney Park

Such a wonderful place to camp! Beautiful hillside views of farm country, well maintained grounds and gardens, gorgeous pool and such a relaxing pool house with kitchen if night comes before dinner is ready! Be ready to climb a hill or two, but then be rewarded with a beautiful night sky and split wood for a cozy fire. We love this place! Thanks, Brittany!

Brittany and Spencer have a great set up for anyone who enjoys the pleasures of camping with a touch of glamp. There are two tent sites on the property. We stayed at site #2 which was up on a hill and offered a nice view of the property. The pool house was a surprise and a joy! There’s a full kitchen and bathroom, books, and tv with video games. We took a morning swim in the rain because the pool was just too nice to miss out on. Would definitely love to visit again and spend some time BBQing by the pool, swimming and exploring the nature trail.
