This site is deep into the woods at Elsewhere and very private, yet less than a 5 minute walk from the parking area. While staying at Lynx, explore the surrounding forest and check out the overlook of Mt. Monadnock only a couple hundred feet uphill from the bell tent. Bring your road bicycles and go for our Best Day in the Countryside loop, with a 25 mile ride on nearly all back roads that'll take you to a farm to table restaurant (The Farm Table in Bernardston), Hitchcock Brewery, and ends with Blueberry House ice cream in Guilford VT. The bustling artist town of Brattleboro is only 12 minutes away from our home, featuring Whetstone Brewery, one of the most beautiful breweries sitting right on the edge of the Connecticut River. There are tons of spots to get out on the river or a handful of lakes and ponds to choose from. And don't forget hiking! From a leisurely backwoods loop at Elsewhere to Mt. Wantastiquet overlooking Brattleboro, and further up the grueling Mt. Ascutney 45 minutes away, there are plenty of places to get after it. Book through hipcamp, or discuss with the duo when you arrive to add on to your stay later.
*Besides Lynx Lair, we also have a sites called Owl Grove, Coyote Ridge, and another canvas bell tent site; Bear's Den. You can also book out our entire campground for you and your friends! Rates are $175 a night for all four sites. Message Colby to for any questions or details on booking all of Elsewhere Homestead.*

A peaceful evening elsewhere...
It was a quiet and peaceful evening. I had a big fire pit that kept me warm and a cozy tent up off the ground. I called back and forth with the owls. I was awoken by birds singing and the sun shining in to the tent.
Overall this is a tranquil spot that was the perfect place to get away! The hosts are a cute couple in their tiny house and are around if you need anything. They were very welcoming and offered firewood for a fee. There is access to an outhouse and lots of nearby trails to explore.
10/10 would stay again!! :-)
Great hangout spot!
This is an adorable site- tucked into the woods far away from everyone, but along a clear path with signs and solid directions. The platform is a great spot to sit, drink a beer, and listen to animals all evening. The tent is waterproof and cozy- nice to not have to worry about setting up a personal tent.
I made great use of the firepit too!
Beautiful woodsy spot!
The site was just as beautiful as I was anticipating! It was very secluded and romantic for our getaway. Colby was really friendly and helpful! Would love to stay again sometime when we have the opportunity :)
Wonderful location & clever set up
I had a great time during my stay at the Lynx's Lair. The site was super clean and the hosts very friendly. The canvas tent was a unique change of pace from my normal a-frame and the string lighting on the interior was a nice touch.
We will most definitely be back
We had an amazing one-night stay at Lynx Lair in Elsewhere Homestead, albeit too short. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The campsites at Elsewhere are truly breathtaking. We visited in the fall when all the leaves were changing color and we were not disappointed with the results. That said, the forest included tall trees, boulders, cliffs, and even a stream that was flowing strong due to heavy rains before we arrived. I'm sure this would be beautiful any time of the year.
The tent was a really great quality style tent with a heavy canvas material and rubber flooring built on a raised wooden platform. The string lights were also a great touch. Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back
Perfect fall camping
I made a return trip to Lynx Lair because this truly is one of my favorite camp sites and is convenient enoigh for a spur of the moment trip. I was curious if it would feel private now that the trees have been denuded and can say it still felt every bit as private as I had hoped. The weather was perfect for sleeping with temps in the 30s. I'll likely keep returning until i reach the temperature limits of my gear.
A charming spot in the vt woods
Lynx Lair was just as lovely as when I had last stayed there. The brook was running fast from the winter melt, creating a relaxing backdrop as I drifted off to sleep. One of my favorite places and I'll definitely be coming back.
