My small farm is located in the Agricultural Reserve of Montgomery County Maryland. Plenty of fields surround my space, especially in the back where the campsite is. A meadow full of wildflowers then woods enhance the experience with a fantastic view of nearby Sugarloaf Mountain. A mown path is available to walk around the field, great for dogs.
A fire pit with stumps for seats is nearby with long marshmallow sticks for making s'mores or toasting a bratwurst.
A small pond with a little waterfall enhances the space. A patio is provided for seating. A small table allows for food preparation.
The charming main house is just a minute walk away where one can get water, use the toilet, shower and fridge if you need it. A yarn studio is on the property stocked with hand dyed yarn, wool blankets and artisan wearables.
The nearest town is 6 miles away which offers a few restaurants, bars, gas and other services. This area has many outdoor activities to offer. Rock climbing, hiking, biking (road biking, mountain biking) with the C&O Canal just 3 miles away (a car free trail that is 187 miles long). I have maps of many biking and hiking trails and can recommend many places to go. Sugarloaf Mountain is ideal for hiking with 50 miles of trails and great views from the top. We have some of the finest white water paddling and also a calm lake if waves are not your thing. Seneca Lake is 7 miles away for calm kayaking or swimming, having a picnic or even trail biking. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing can be done right from the property. A slack line can be set up right near the tent. You can also hang a hammock if you like.
I also am listed on Airbnb. I at times have 3 bedrooms available (depending on availability).

The vibe at Sheep and their Chickens Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This small location is such a delight. The polish chickens with their crazy hair do's alone is a MUST SEE! You should also head over to this site to check out the gorgeous yarn shop that the host Dalis runs on site and at pop-ups.
My family spent the night camping on a very rainy weekend and we still had a blast. When we first arrived it was easy to find the camping area. We set up our tent on a flat surface and we were good go! We ran into town for some ice and ended up in the cutest neighborhood shop. Just an 8 min drive straight down the road lead us to the historical store that sold souvenirs, locally sourced produce, meats, cheese, jam, and gorgeous flowers. For a quick lunch we headed over to Bassett's which we highly recommend. We ordered "The World's Best Tatter Tots" and it's possible they are THE WORLDS BEST TATER TOTS!
Following our time on the town we were able to set up a small fire before it stormed for the next 15 hours. While on site we had the chance to chat with Dalis about how she dyes her yarn and the types of eggs her chickens lay. The sheep weren't as sociable as the chickens and hung out in the barn during our stay. I imagine that if you visit on a sunny day the sheep might be more outgoing. We found the farm house bathroom inside the main house to be very useful, especially if you need to clean up from a rain storm!
Hanging out at this location was very relaxing. The calming colors and silly decorations around the site makes it easy to love. If you're considering this destination....DO IT!
