Not really camping... The farm's cabin has been spiffed up for guests with a comfy double bed, a window seat and a small table for writing or just coffee. This one room cabin on short stilts sits slightly uphill from the farmstead. Fully screened (not windows--see photos) it's a wonderful, quiet perch from which to hear, smell, watch and enjoy farm life.

Our private cabin is close to all Berkshire cultural attractions and outdoor activities while nestled on an quiet countryside organic farm. It's a great base for exploration, a romantic hideaway, or a quiet writing retreat.

Though you can recharge your laptop or phone, there's no internet connectivity, so your retreat won't be interrupted by squawks, or chirps, except from our rooster, and real, live crickets and tree frogs. The farmhouse is nearby (50 yards), but the cabin is wonderfully private. The cabin's own mini 'lawn' and fire pit are just outside the door. Stroll the farm road, and explore the farm, keeping in mind that it's a working farm.   Hike the maintained Nature Conservancy trail right next to the farm, or just chill in your hideaway.  This retreat is perfect for couples and solo adventurers.

It's cozy and rustic--it's a farm!--with a wonderful vibe.  This is definately not airb&b.  Expect to be awakened by a crowing rooster.  (If field mice, a lowing cow in a nearby field, poison ivy, spiders, grass soaked in morning dew, dogs, a hooting owl or coyote's howl cause you consternation, this is decidedly not for you.)

Because of covid restrictions, the toilet is now a porta-potty that is less than 100 yards from the cabin.  The cabin has no running water. (Natch, water's available at the house.)

Take-out meals are available out at any of the numerous, great south Berkshire eateries: There's a great cafe  (that also delivers) five minutes away for cappuccino, muffins or a breakfast sannie and a dozen terrific restaurants within 20 minutes. ...or...  Bring your own gear (camp stove, pan and dishes) to prep and cook your meal at the fire pit--that's the 'rough' camping part!  We can provide some materials if you need: firewood, charcoal, organic pasture-raised meats, organic veggies, eggs, etc. as seasonally available (separate charges)--order on our website mooninthepond . org/order/.

See our tent site listing for more awesome details about the farm, trails, and cool stuff in the environs.

We ask that guests respect our privacy in and around the house, and immediate environs--these areas are not for guests' use.  On the farm, closed areas (with doors and gates) are off limits: pastures, animal enclosures, stalls, etc.   If in doubt, please ask.

Our stay at Moon in the Pond was so wonderful! The cabin itself is absolutely gorgeous. We loved all of the little structural details like the reclaimed windows, the rams skull, the wood stove and vintage table! The bed was super comfy and listening to the chickens cluck not too far away happily reminded us that we were tucked away on a farm. Even on our chilly April night it was very cozy feeling inside the cabin. With a fire going I'm sure that you would stay nice and toasty even in the winter months. Dominic was very responsive and helpful with anything we needed, and we would definitely come back again.

We had a wonderful time in the cabin at Moon in the Pond Farm. The farm is beautiful, the cabin is cozy, and we cooked some delicious sausages and hamburgers over the camp fire that we purchased straight from the farm. Dom was a great host—very knowledgeable and accommodating. We definitely hope to return!

Dominic’s cabin was lovely! My boyfriend and I stayed here in the dead of winter. It was definitely very cold, but Dominic warned us of that, so we came prepared and had a wonderful time! Dominic was so helpful with information during the weekend and recommended the most incredible hike, an absolutely gorgeous section of the Appalachian Trail. We highly recommend it if you can handle the cold, and would love to come back and visit in a season besides winter!

Beautiful location! The cabin was perfect for two; quiet, hidden, and charming. We loved the views, cooking over the campfire, and the comfort we felt on the property. The people we met on the farm were friendly and helpful. We would absolutely recommend this place to friends.

I was warned about what to expect in terms of conveniences (few), but not about the charms, which included a peaceful setting, with birds in the trees and skies all day, and fireflies and stars at night. And frogs. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

A cozy, private retreat surrounded by vibrant plant and animal life, human-tended on one side, wild and free on the other. A great place to disconnect from your day to day.
