Imagine camping at a romantic lavender farm at the top of Vermont. Lavender Essentials of Vermont sits on top of a 1,500' hill in the quaint little town of Derby, Vermont. Nestled in a hillside meadow, the campsites are only a short walk from the lavender fields and 360' of breathtaking views. You will want to bring your camera!

Stay with us at our farm, and take in the quaint, picturesque countryside. We offer a peaceful site, away from it all, to relax and experience Vermont. In the meadows you can pick wild flowers, take an afternoon nap, wander the trails, bird watch, or listen to frogs and catch fireflies in the evening. At night you will be amazed at the star filled sky!

Day or night it's hard to deny the peaceful and romantic feeling you get from the lavender farm! The farm has a Lavender Labyrinth, fields of sunflowers, chamomile, mint (and other herbs and vegetables), bees, informational placards along walking trails, cozy private seating, a gazebo for special events, a hidden geocache, and even a gift shop! There are lots of things to see and do on the farm. Especially during bloom season—June-September. Check out our event calendar and follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on what's happening at the farm (Lavender-Essentials.com).

Whether it’s nature or culture you seek, peace or thrills, this unique area of the Northeast Kingdom offers something for everyone! Your hosts, Michele and Pierre, are locals and they know all the best and unadvertised places to explore. Ask them about local dives and even haunted hikes. Just 30 minutes away is one of the best bike parks in New England, Kingdom Trails in Burke.  Also nearby is Jay Peak, a ski resort with an indoor water park, golf course, ice arena, climbing walls, and much more! The farm is located just 2 miles from the Canadian border. Magog, Sherbrooke, and Montreal offer a taste of international cultural that will appease your Quebecois desires! If you plan to visit Canada while you are here, remember you must have your passport!

 Stay at one of the most beautiful places on earth, and allow us to help you find peace and tranquility, or we can be your personal adventure guide! We go out of our way to provide you with a memorable stay, and do our best to facilitate the kind of vacation you are looking for! 

We love dogs, but we must insist dogs be kept on a leash at all times. Dogs are not allowed in the farm's fields because we grow culinary grade crops and must protect them. All dog waste must be cleaned immediately and is restricted to designated pet rest areas. Owners will be held responsible for any damages.

Please keep your campsite clean.  Fires are allowed, as long as winds are not strong. Our weather can be breezy, and exposed at times, so pack according. Bring a sweater and a kite! There's a reason we have a 140ft wind turbine.

The Lavender Farm site had a spectacular 360 degree view into Canada and over some gorgeous lakes. The lavender was still in bloom so we were lucky. The property was lovely to walk around and get an easy workout. Michele was accommodating and lent us a cute fire pit. There's a beautiful gazebo for wine and cheese or a full catered dinner that can be used if you arrange it ahead of time.

Second time here. Once again we were not disappointed. Amazing views of VT in a private well maintained space right next to beautiful rows of lavender.

It's not exaggerating to say it feels like being on top of the world staying here. We chose a site with a view west, over the lake and to Jay and the other peaks. Had the weather been better, the sunset would have been a once in a lifetime event, I'm sure.

Michele was a thoughtful host and well-educated guide about the area, her farm and the particulars of lavender. I would visit and camp out under the big sky of stars again in a heartbeat! The amenities are ideal, especially the camp cooking areas, the nature walk and the telescope. You must try the homemade butter!!

This place is an absolute treasure. The views are even better than the photos reveal. We were welcomed by the entire crew and escorted to our site. When the neighboring farm sprayed fertilizer upwind of our site, they found us a new site with even more spectacular views. Can’t recommend Michele, Pierre, and Scarlet enough. Hope to come back next summer.

My group camped out over the 4th of July weekend, and though it was a cold one, our stay was unforgettable! Michele was helpful and kind, the farm/farm store was really cute, the views were breathtaking, and the one night of stars we got was absolutely incredible! We almost had a 360 view of fireworks from our secluded hilltop campsite under a wind turbine.
My boyfriend popped the question while we took in the mountains here too, so it was a truly unforgettable trip.
I'm looking forward to returning one day!

Michele was a wonderful, accommodating host. Her property is a once in a lifetime place and has a 360 view of the mountains(including Jay peak) and you can even see the Milky Way on a clear night.
