This is a truly unique Vermont camping location! Soak up the natural beauty of a hardwood forest in our state's capital. Then, stroll, bike, or drive less than a mile to enjoy Montpelier's vibrant downtown culture.

When you arrive at our home, walk a minute uphill to a flat, beautiful, private wooded area nestled among the ferns and rocky outcroppings. Pitch your tent next to Birdsong Cabin. Perhaps enjoy an evening beside the glow of a fire in the fire pit that's located right outside the cabin door. We are within city limits yet the stars shine through the canopy on clear nights.

A composting toilet can be found behind the structure. A Water spigot is located on the side of house beside the bulkhead, in between the two doors.

A solar shower is available outside of the cabin and can be filled in advance if requested.

This enchanting natural setting is a 10-15 minute walk to fun shops and excellent restaurants, cafes, and bakeries - many with outdoor seating. There is also a wonderful Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings only a few blocks away.

The arts in Montpelier is noteworthy with live music and nearly every weekend. The Savoy theater, an independent movie theatre, is a gem.

If you're the active type, there's a great local trail network for mountain biking and running just a few miles away. Fabulous hikes and swimming holes are within a short driving distance.

Bird Song is unfurnished so you will need to bring a camp pad and sleeping bag!

Thank you for helping us to maintain the tranquility of the area and neighborhood. No music or parties.

We loved Fern Woods and Mary's warm greeting was welcome after a day on our bikes in the rain. She let us use her shower and told us about the good places to go at Montpelier to eat and rest.

Would recommend a 100% !

Mary’s property is beautiful and perfectly situated on the edge of town. We felt like we were in the middle of nowhere and yet we were a few minutes walk from the shops and restaurants. Mary herself is lovely. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. I would stay here again.
