I was looking for a secluded spot and this definitely fit the bill. I set up near the pond and felt sheltered by the trees while i also had an open view of the starry sky. The host was very accomodating for a last minute booking and graciously provided water and goodies at the site. Definitely would come back here again.

Had a wonderful time at Blueberry Orchard. The site itself was lovely and very private and spacious. My party was only two but you could easily fit several more tents for a larger group. John was incredibly welcoming, sharing some amazing recommendations before our arrival, including a local farm that does live music and beer on Saturday afternoons. He also prepared a delicious sourdough pizza for my friend and I, with all fresh and home-grown ingredients :) Would highly recommend!

This place is beyond what I expected in terms of privacy and beauty. We were there only from about 3 pm one day to 11 am the next day and it was magical, walking amongst the blueberry orchard (alas, out of season), down by the pond (great blue Heron hanging there), a short jog down the leaf-covered road through the colorful fall forest. One car drove by the entire time as it’s on a dead end road with I think only 2 houses beyond this land. Don’t skip this place. If I lived anywhere near I would come here regularly. John was away so I didn’t meet him but he was very responsive via text message.

It was lovely staying at the blueberry orchard. We never met John, but he was great at communicating with us and he even left us fresh garden tomatoes and peppers upon our arrival, which was super sweet. It was very quiet and peaceful.

We really enjoyed our quiet stay at the Blueberry Orchard this fall. We have a small camper and wanted to see how we could get by off grid with our little kids with us. They enjoyed running through the orchard and loved the surroundings.

John was very helpful with any questions we had before and after booking. He also brought us eggs on our first morning when we could no longer purchase through the app. He was super responsive and respectful of giving us our space and privacy during our stay.

This is a great place to get away from everything for a few nights or for any reason if you’re in the area. Amenities like toilets aren’t on property but if you’re ready for that then you’ll have a great stay.

I've used Hipcamp four times now. Not a newbie and definitely not a newbie to travel and camping. Of the four Hipcamp sites I've stayed at, one in Colorado, two in Vermont, and here, this has been far and away the absolute best experience. I stayed here over Columbus Day weekend with made-to-order weather on tap. The grounds were beautiful. It gives you a feeling of being much more remote than you really are. It was quiet, spacious, very private and very well kept. You'll hear owls at night. There is a fire pit, a picnic table, a spare cooler for your use, and a hot, homemade pizza waiting for you upon arrival! Really! It was delicious and just what we needed after arriving in the dark. John is the epitome of hospitality. Not only did he provide the pizza but he also brought us some of his spring water. He made sure he was there to help us out in anyway we might need but he was in no way intrusive. We only saw him twice over the course of our stay. He's is very friendly and I could have easily shared a beer around the fire with him. We camped in a teardrop-type camper that is about 13' stem to stern. I easily managed to place it on a level spot with my Jeep. Our spot was sunny, provided a clear view of the night sky, and was only 15 yards from the picnic table and fire pit. John even offered to move the picnic table closer to us! Oh yeah, when he delivered the water on his ATV he also brought a bouquet of flowers for the table. He is a host's host. The local area is absolutely beautiful if you're looking for nature. We brought our gravel bikes and had an amazing ride. You could easily spend several days here and not ride all the gravel roads, hike all the trails, or investigate the local history. It's an amazing place and practically in my own backyard. How have I missed this!? I don't usually return to places since I like exploring the new but this place has me thinking twice about that. It's definitely worth the stay.

One of the best basecamps I've experienced.The phrase "it doesn't get much better than this" is often overused but it totally fits here.Hot coffee, blazing fall colors.

Nice private spot. Tight entrance down a dead end dirt road, but still had enough room to pull my Silverado and 27’ airstream in to set up camp next to the shed on the property

Literally the nicest! John was super friendly and communicative, the site was exactly as we imagined it would be. Very peaceful, and a great place to star gaze. Definitely a great spot for fall foliage scenery! There’s also a few hikes within a short drive of the spot as well as many small towns to explore. We made the choice of getting a jar of honey from the farm as well and weren’t let down-it was super good! 10/10 for a short relaxing getaway.
