Step back into the "Old Vermont" countryside, the way life used to be...on this 7 acre eclectic hobby farm surrounded by other farms, rolling hills and trails.

Thank you all for a wonderful second season and voting for us, 2nd Place Overall Best of Vermont!  2022 camping season will soon be here and we are offering some improvements: a second outhouse up on the ridge, equipment shed on the ridge, better and stronger WiFi and the mobile farm stand....our '51 Willy's pick up tailgate complimentary farm stand all await you in 2022.  We're combining all three sites onto this profile for a more convenient way to view the property and book your getaway.  See you soon!

Three large sites; totally different in many ways but all share the same property and amenities Maple Ridge Farm has to offer:

"Field View Site" (Site#1) is our largest site and can accommodate up to fourteen people easily and still maintain privacy.  Formerly two sites, Field View Site provides much more privacy and space to spread out and relax!  There's a variety of terrain/layout in the rolling fields; site main area is centered around an old Horse Round Pen and has fire ring, cooking grate, old-fashion cook stove, and two wooden picnic tables.   The field is the most accessible site from the car parking area along a flat, wooded trail, a 5 minute stroll either past the goats and ducks or thru the woods.  It offers privacy from everything else, still plenty of shade and great views of the Hollow/Valley and the Eastern Mountain Range.  Again, this site can accommodate larger groups with multiple tents in and around an old Horse Round Pen/Paddock or open fields.  Other field areas offer areas under the apple trees or overlooking the apple trees or at the top of the field overlooking the neighboring 1880s Farmhouse and Barn.  Field View Site is adjoining the Communal Fire Pit/Cook Area but has all of its own amenities as well but also is next to a two-story clubhouse with slide and porch swing (great site for kids) so it makes a great site for children!

"Ridge View Site" (Site#2) is a mountainside, wooded area with many flat areas to accommodate multiple tents affording mountain views and privacy.  Many areas to "spread out" and have a relaxing, peaceful, secluded camping experience.  Formerly three different sites, the main site area has a wood picnic table, fire pit and cooking grate but other areas perched on the edge of a trail leading off to a fern grotto under mature pine trees or down the trail along some giant cedar trees, all of which can accommodate larger groups with multiple tents and still provide privacy.  A 5 minute walk up a switchback trail or a more leisurely stroll up from the Communal Fire Pit/Cook Area along an old horse trail.  Side-By-Side ATV assistance is available for pack-in/out along with a small outhouse and tool/equipment shed (new for 2022).  This site is between car-camping and back-packing, you're 5 minutes from your car but you'll feel like miles away!

"Pond View Site" (Site#3)  is at top of the ridge and offers a beautiful view of a neighboring pond (sorry...POND NOT ACCESSIBLE, only the view) but is very secluded and private with plenty of room to spread out and accommodate multiple tents.  It is truly a natural beauty and sunrise is a superbly zen experience!  Chose you own site, formerly two sites, some areas offer better views or more room, view the pond from your tent opening at sunrise is spectacular!  A large fire pit with cooking grate along with a wood picnic table and trash can is located on the main area of the site and as all the sites, this one can accommodate large groups as well and will afford much privacy, tranquility and seclusion.  This site also is near the ridge top outhouse (new for 2022) and equipment shed and is only a 5 minute hike or 6-8 minute stroll but complimentary shuttle service via our all terrain ATV is available to help pack your gear in and out.

Stroll the farm grounds, pet the dwarf goats, feed the chickens, ducks, ghinea hens and quail....they're all friendly!  Take advantage of some of our complimentary ammenities such as:   pick your own apples and try making homemade apple cider (in-season);  farm fresh eggs available right from the hens from all types of birds; fresh veggies available from our mobile farm stand (in-season) which is the old '51 farm truck; coffee/tea/bottled water is always free in the Rec Room along with plenty of area maps and trail maps! 

Farm-made Maple Syrup, sunflowers (in-season), and various sundries/gifts are all available at our Farm/Camp Store. 

Our farm, Maple Ridge Farm, in Guilford is about 4 mile drive to downtown Brattleboro but many other trails, swimming/boating/fishing holes, state parks, ice cream stands and a general stores are all within 2-3 miles away in Guilford.  Stay with us and experience a truly quintessential Vermont country weekend!

Many horse farms in the vicinity may offer lessons/riding nearby within 2-3 miles in and around Guilford/Brattleboro.

Hike/mountain bike the abounding trails, most of which are directly across the road behind Guilford Fairgrounds!  Weatherhead Hollow Pond is about 1.5 miles down the road and is approximately a mile long, offering many watersports (fishing, sunbathing, swimming, kayaking and small non-motorized boating) but there are more in every direction.

*All sites are under 5 minute walk from parking area but load-in/load-out provided by host via UTV Side By Side.  Parking area on property for all vehicles, near barns and Rec Room, Shower, and Outhouse.

*Possible accommodations for motorcycle campers in Field View Areas only.  Also, Camper Vans in and around parking area near barns (no water/sewer hook-ups and closed until the off-season), message in advance for more details for more info on accommodating small trailers and van/truck campers.

Tony and Alfeen were amazing hosts, helping us bring our gear and firewood to our Pond View site. They also had great recommendations for local watering holes. Kids loved the woods and being able to see the farm animals; ans had the best time in the rec room. Beautiful property; site was quirky for our extra large tents, but we were able to make it work. Big plus to have the extra portable toilet close to our site; with small children it would have been difficult getting them to and from the main outhouse after dark.

We stayed at the pond site and it was perfect. The trees provided great coverage during the hottest parts of our stay. The hosts were kind, generous, and accommodating. Our kids had a great time visiting the animals and the rec room. Great place for families and anyone looking for a quiet stay!

What a beautiful spot. Anthony was awesome. Showed us around so we could pick our spot and drove our stuff to the spot so we didn’t have to carry it up the hill. Bathrooms were clean, he had clean water available, Anthony delivered us some firewood, we went down in the morning to see the goats and chickens. Incredibly quiet and peaceful. No cell service. The whole experience was wonderful and we will definitely go back when in that area

Anthony was so nice and hospitable. The sites are up a steeper hill which you can climb but he was nice enough to carry us and our stuff up and back on his 4x4. He even brought us some wood for a fire. We also brought our dog who loved running around and even got to play with the host's dogs too!

We had a great time camping at Maple Ridge. Anthony, the host, was so kind and accommodating. The directions are really clear, and the site was clean and lovely. We stayed at Field View. It is very easy to walk from parking to this site! As others have noted, it is very much in the sun, but we were able to tuck our tents into a little corner by some bushes and got a hint of shade.

After 6 years of celebrating my husband's birthdays at campgrounds, he was looking for a more woodsy place to set up our tent so this was the ideal place to celebrate his birthday. Definitely gives you the "middle of nowhere" feeling with the ability to still drive a few minutes to local breweries and restaurants and the creature comforts of bathrooms and electricity about a 10 minute walk from the sites. If you're an animal lover, there are also very friendly dogs, goats, and all sorts of farm birds on the property. Anthony and his fiancé are incredibly friendly and welcoming as well.

We had a really great experience at Maple Ridge. Tony is a very generous and friendly host who's clearly put a lot of thought and care into his camp. His camp features more amenities than other hip camps and is a truly unique experience. We will definitely be returning.
