We stayed three nights at this beautiful location, a short ten minute drive from the Appalachian Trail, The Vermont Long Trail, and nearby swimming spots like Little Rock Pond and local rivers. The campsite, a clearing in a wooded area atop a small knoll just above the pastures, comfortably fit our 2 tents (10’x10’ and 6’x8’), a kitchen area, and chairs to enjoy the firepit. Leslie and Byron, our hosts, went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, equipping our site with firewood and kindling, water for washing up, and even bear spray. With recent rains making the ground a bit soft for our car, they kindly lent us a 4x4 ATV for our stay to make the farm more easily accessible. A brand new outhouse was clean and conveniently located, and our hosts gave us some excellent suggestions for nearby restaurants and farmer’s markets to purchase local meats and produce… Falling asleep to the sounds of the two streams running on either side of our campsite, and then waking for a morning coffee and walk near the cows in the pasture while enjoying views of the Green Mountains made for a magical few days…. Highly recommend this hipcamp to recharge your batteries!

Hip 1: Big enough for our 10'x10' and 6'x8' tentsThis view is included? Yep! What a bargain!Enjoyed morning coffee with some new 4 legged friendsThe site was immaculate, and the hosts provided water, wood and bear spray

Leslie and Byron were amazing hosts. Before I even arrived Leslie had contacted me to align my travel with their time schedule so that they could make sure the site was ready. And it was. Stocked with dry firewood and kindling and cleared out so that the ground you set up on is soft and stick free. The farm was absolutely breath taking, located at the foot of beautiful mountains. I recommend taking Leslie up on her food recommendations, each one she offered was exactly what I was looking for.

The air was so so clean! Great to be out of the city.A friendly horse on my way out.View of the mountains.

Response from Leslie & Byron, the Host, on July 20th, 2021

Iwona was a perfect first guest experience for us. So thankful for his suggestions we made the changes. That naughty mare running next to the boys turn out! She would never go anywhere she just wanted to torment them! That is farm life sometimes. We hope you come back. There is some amazing hiking around here. Best!
