We loved camping on Mike’s land. The views were absolutely amazing. The chickens were a lot of fun and we loved having an outdoor shower right at our site. Mike’s son made pizzas Saturday night in their outdoor oven, which were delicious! Great hiking not too far away. We can’t wait to go back.

Mike and his beautiful family are gracious and caring hosts. As you explore the property you can see their care for the land, animals and environment in the way they manage the sites and their farm. They don't just talk about being good stewards of the land, they do it!

Privacy, room to move, quiet & peaceful, a cold spring shower, a clean pit/ bathroom, nice tables and chairs, a firepit, fields and woods full of fireflies, an incredible view, awesome pizza (nice work boys!)… is this really camping? Add in easy access to lakes, rivers & streams, hikes & climbs, shopping, restaurants - there is something for everybody.

Having spent the majority of my life outdoors, I can confidently say that this will be one of the best, if not THE best, camping experience you will have.

We liked it so much we are thinking about moving to Vermont.

Every single site that Mike has to offer has a great view and is wonderfully peaceful! Super friendly host, would absolutely love to go back! Great fire pits, unique and cool showers and even the bathrooms that are available are accommodating and unique to their own!

This is the most beautiful and private campsite I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at. The views are monumental, there is so much privacy, and Mike is the coolest host you’ll ever meet! The days we chose to visit there were storms all over the northeast, but we got so lucky and hardly dealt with any rain the whole trip. When it was coming down there is a massive tree canopy to keep you dry and set up a shelter. Feeding the chickens in the morning was a highlight, as well as the nearby access to drinking water and a spring shower on site. After our final night we spent the day exploring nearby Arlington and fell in love with the area. I may end up living nearby there one day, but until then, Timbertrail farms will be my all time favorite place to stay while I visit.

This spot was just magical. It had everything we needed. The views when it was light out were gorgeous but the fireflies at night were absolutely our favorite. Thank you so much Mike :)

We camped at the upper left camping spot for 8 days, and it was an excellent spot. There are 4 other sites on the property that we saw, and this one was by far the best for our liking.
It is a somewhat steep, bumpy hill to drive up, and AWD/4wd seems like a must, especially if there is rain. It was no issue for the Suburu Outback.
The site is big, and secluded, you barely see the roof of Mike's place below, and the view is fantastic. The site is on a hill, so there aren't any flat spots.
There was a raised fire pit, which was great. The toilet was compost, and out in the open- no "outhouse" but secluded with a privacy fence, a very short nice walk away from the site, and lit up with solar lights for night. It worked, and the view was pretty nice. There was a "shower" in process of being completed/just started from winter.
Overall a great site, very secluded, extremely large, with great views. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for this type of experience.
