We had a great time an Wilder Hill Gardens! The farm is beautiful and the area is really cute. Lilian was such a sweet and laid back host!! We would definitely recommend Wilder Hill Gardens and hope to return soon! :)
Wilder hill is truly a gem.
We had the most enjoyable stay with Lilian at Wilder Hill. We have two little boys (3 and 5) and it was such an easy and fun weekend with them. There were many little swimming holes in the area that Lilian (Farmer Lilian to the boys) recommended where we hung out and swam for hours! At the farm, Lilian was a wonderful host, always making sure we had everything we needed. She is so great with children and even offered to make cookies with the boys, which they loved. Her dog, Viola, is gentle with kids and let our older son dig and play with her. The area is full of farms with fresh amazing food, we took home a bounty! Wilder Hill is truly a gem and we look forward to going back before the summer is over.
Lillian was a wonderful host, very helpful and informative. The property is a beautiful garden/nursery that includes a chicken coop as well. Only a 10 minute drive to the nearby towns of Ashfield and Shelburne falls with plenty of hiking and trails nearby. Will likely book again in the future.
What a gorgeous place! Lilian was great about communication before we arrived, was there to meet us, and gave us a tour of her grounds. She is so relaxed, so hospitable, and made us feel right at home. Her nursery/fruit farm was peaceful, beautiful, and filled with good energy and life! Lilian has recently put up a new bath house with a compostable toilet, and built a kitchen/loft/porch/hangout area that really enhanced our stay. We got to enjoy the chickens, gardens, good people, and even some wildlife! There is an amazing chorus of birds in the morning that makes waking up a special event. If you happen to be in the area, definitely check out Wilder Hill Gardens! Thank you Lilian!
Lillian was a delightful host: she was committed to ensuring we had what we needed to have a great time (despite the rain). Her dog, Viola, was also a charmer. The location is beautifully landscaped and fruit growing on the property is an additional treat. I would definitely stay again.
Loved our experience at Wilder Hill Gardens. Lovely grounds in a part of MA that I hadn't really explored. Due to a lot of rainy weather leading up to our stay, we ended up pitching our tent on the newly built deck attached to the recently built classroom/studio/gathering place. We were next to the blueberry patch and small orchard. We got to meet Viola, the dog, who is quite friendly. Lilian employed my two sons to pick blueberries for her, which they enthusiastically did and were quite pleased with the money they made and the job they did. We visited Shelburne Falls, a charming town nearby.
Wilder Hill Gardens is a beautiful nursery nestled in the hills of western MA. Lilian, the host, is super friendly and will be there to greet upon arrival to show you around. You can set your tent up pretty much anywhere you want that is practical, and there is also a deck option to set it up on as well. There is a compostable toilet, multiple areas to have a campfire, and a relaxing hammock by one of the buildings. Thank you for the great stay, Lilian!
The location of this site was fantastic in a beautiful part of Massachusetts. Close to Shelburne Falls, Conway, many small farms and a swimming hole just down the road. The amenities were very good.
