Fox Farm is located on 8 magical acres in eclectic Brattleboro, VT. The Fox Farm Cottage is a sweet space that includes a loft for sleeping and sharing with a comfy bed, above a quaint family room with a hearty woodstove. The warmer months provide sweet summer breezes and intoxicating scents from the surrounding flora. The Cottage has a beautiful covered porch overlooking garden beds, fruit trees and abundant wild red and black raspberry bushes. The porch has also been enjoyed by many when the winter chill sets in and the snow falls with a silence that is pleasant and the scent of wood smoke that is memorable. The Cottage comes with a charcoal grill, access to a huge fire circle, or your own private fire pit.   I am happy to share wood if I have it but at times do not, so feel free to check in with me if that is something you would like to discuss. I would also ask guests to consider bringing some wood of their own to supplement (dry wood)  in case I am low or if we have had wet weather.  To note, the stairway to to the loft is narrow and should be a consideration for those who may experience difficulties. The Fox Farm Cabin is a step up from camping in that it is cute, charming and warm and does not (at this point) offer plumbing or water.  Offered is a primitive "lug a loo" portable potty.  I request that guests pack out what they pack in.  Further amenities may be arranged by talking with Cindy, the property owner, if needed.

The hipcamper can expect privacy yet easy accessibility to the homeowner for tips and ideas to support a positive experience.

Fox Farm is located ideally on a trail-head that leads to the West River Trail (a 36-mile scenic trail through the West River Valley – eventually linking Brattleboro, Dummerston, Newfane, Townshend, Jamaica and South Londonderry) and the West River, offers opportunities to visitors to hike, fish, swim, ski, snow shoe and bike. The Marina Bar and Restaurant is a 2 mile hike or bike ride from the cottage (via the West River Trail) and is a fun way to see the beauty of Vermont and partake in some excellent indoor/outdoor dining with views of the water.

Brattleboro is a funky, hipster town with many excellent restaurants and much to see and do.

For winter enthusiasts Mount Snow is a 30 minute drive and folks can cross country ski and snowshoe right from the cottage to the 36 mile trail for tons of fun.

Cottage guests may be greeted and visited by two friendly Bernese Mountain Dogs Loki Bear and Levi!

This was my fist experience with hip camp. I didn’t know what to expect.
This place was so cute and cozy, and bigger than I expected. We came here last min on our Mini moon after eloping. It was a cozy romantic camping experience. And the local area had a lot to offer. good shops and restaurants. It was very private and peaceful. The host was helpful and polite. The trails are close and not to far from the river. It’s really a beautiful area.
We will definitely stay again. We might bring the kids next time :)

My wife and I loved this cozy, little cabin. Cindy was the perfect host, meeting with us as soon as we showed up. She was on hand for any needs we may have had and was very receptive to any tips or pointers on how to make the experience even better to future renters. The location is great with Brattleboro center only a 10 minute drive from the site, while at the cabin you feel, and have, true peace and quiet. We will be staying there again in the future!❤️

We absolutely loved our nights sitting by the fire, listening to music with the ambience of the cabin lights.

Great location just outside of Brattleboro with nice walking trail down to the West River!
We enjoyed having a private fire pit. And the lovely partially screened in porch with gorgeous fresh cut flowers…
Nights got down to 46 degrees and we stayed cozy without a fire.
Space is primitive and would not be for everyone- it’s truly a hip camp-
We were able to cook and relax but cabin is not well insulated so moist inside early mornings.
We would definitely stay again
Thanks Cindy.

Loved staying at the cottage for the weekend. Cindy was very communicative from the time of booking all the way through the trip and answered every question we had. We loved relaxing on the newly screened porch, building a campfire, and walking to the river on the property. It was like the benefits of camping without the work and with the bonus of a real bed, kitchen amenities, and thoughtful little touches. Thanks so much Cindy!

My stay at Fox Farm Cottage was amazing! Sadly it rained for a day, but we were able to take advantage of the covered porch & also went into town that day. Cindy was such a kind and helpful host. I would love to come again sometime!

Allie was a most repsectful guest, as was her partner. Excellent communication which is most appreciated by a host specifically around ETA. Additionally, the cabin was left impeccably! Would most highly recommend!

Cindy is incredibly accommodating and the cottage is gorgeous! It’s peaceful and quiet- I don’t think I’ve ever slept 12 hours straight before! Looking forward to an excuse that will bring us back that way!

We had a lovely time staying at Fox Farm Cottage. It was just the relaxing retreat we needed and we felt right at home chilling on the patio listening to the birds and crickets. The cottage is cozy and cute with everything you need to relax inside or out, and a kitchen set up with a mini fridge, microwave, hot plate, and all the pots/pans/dishes/silverware you could need. There's also a charcoal grill and fire pit. The short (10-15min) hike to the river was well worth the reward of a nice dip in the cool clear water. This was our first Hipcamp experience and the host, Cindy, did not let us down. She (and her dogs!) was so friendly, welcoming, and ready and willing to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. She even left us some eggs, cheese, and butter in the fridge. Brattleboro is 5 minutes away for anything else you might need. Some prior camping experience is good to have (but not required) as there is no running water or bathrooms, and you'll need to build and douse your own fire if you use the pit. There is electricity though!

I would most highly recommend hosting Gregory. He is an awesome communicator, friendly and was a pleasure to have at the cabin! They left me some amazing foraged mushrooms that were such a treat and cook and add to an omelet, per their direction. Yummm! :) Awesome guests I would love to connect with in the future if they were so guided.

Cindy was a really lovely person, which is why I struggle to write this review.
When we showed up Cindy was very sweet and helpful in showing us the cottage. She had firewood stacked and waiting for us and let us know that if we needed anything at all to not hesitate to ask.

Upon settling into the cottage we noticed it wasn't very clean. For an off-grid cottage you don't expect much. I know there will be spiders/bugs etc. However, the furniture needed a good shampoo and steam clean. There were stains on the white couch. The cushions on the porch furniture had stains and mold. There were cobwebs all over (inside the cottage and inside the porch area up near the roof). The stairs leading to the loft were very dirty and needed to be scrubbed. The loft area lacked a safety rail which was a bit of a concern. The area where we parked had an old cat house with stagnant black water sitting in it (perfect breeding ground for mosquitos). There was a discarded bedside table as well as a discarded lamp in front of the parking space and a dirty dish and some trash to the right of the parking space. The toilet situation was a standard 5 gallon bucket with a seat, but the compost bag didn't fit around the lip of the bucket (creating a mess) and the seat didn't have a lid on it (which I found to be a little unsanitary). Some of the kitchen amenities were dirty. Everything just needed a good scrub and a slight update. It was apparent that the place hadn't been properly cleaned.

On a positive note Cindy made some really great recommendations for things for us to do while there. We visited the Brattleboro Farmers Market as recommended and it did not disappoint. Downtown Brattleboro also was a total hit. Great food and galleries!

This little cottage has so much charm and potential that with a little elbow grease and a touch of that VT thrift store charm I think it would be an exceptional place to stay.
Unfortunately I probably wouldn't spend $150.00 per night to stay there unless the above concerns were addressed.
