Four comfortable hammock tents swinging between the trees, completely surrounded by vegetation, forming a secluded pocket of privacy on 16 acres of wooded property. This unique hammping spot is outfitted with high-end equipment: waterproof tented hammocks, lounging hammocks, sleeping bags with liners, self-inflating mattresses, pillows, blankets, camping chairs, a fire pit with cooking grill, camping kitchenware, towels, LED lamps, bug repellent, hot water bottles (in early spring, fall and winter), free firewood, books, games, rain ponchos, candles, safe & dry storage for your belongings and so much more.
Bathroom, running water, a nook with electric tea pot, coffee maker (with free coffee and cinnamon coffee) and items for a light breakfast are available in the nearest building (60 yards).
Our house is on the property, as well as other buildings, but the hammpground is secluded so guests will have the run of their place without worrying about disturbing or being disturbed.
Guests are welcome to use the glider by our garden to catch the Wi-Fi, but the Hammpground is covered by 4g. They are also welcome to utilize the fridge in a laundry room and in case of less pleasant weather the sun-room, all in the building adjoining their bathhouse.
We also offer additional services such as access to hot tub, fitness and spa, (European standards apply), professional massages, instructional courses, intimate wedding services, vow renewal, etc... all for a fee. These services are for the comfort and convenience of our guests, who are under no obligation to partake.
Our guests value their privacy, so we adjust our interaction to meet their needs. We are always available by phone, text or email. We live on the property, so you may see us occasionally working or socializing with our friends or other guests.
The Hammpground is in use all year, but bear in mind that temperature appropriate clothing is required. Don't show up in winter wearing shorts and expect to be comfortable as it won't happen. Long underwear, caps, gloves and warm jackets are mandatory.
To insure no one ever goes hungry, we offer meal services, too. The meals we provide on request are not exactly cheap (as the price covers visiting various local farms, fetching organic ingredients, carefully preparing food and serving it warm to the doorstep or bed of the tipi, at any time you like). But we promise our meals won't only fill the stomachs, without exception people remember them as some of their best dining experiences ever.
Our place is quiet, and we like to keep it that way. Lots of birds and animals. The property offers walking trails you are welcome to use. Along the way you'll find a table & chairs for a romantic picnic, resting benches, gliders, meditation spots, swings, a little library and other relaxing surprises.
Most guests visit us to enjoy the peace and solitude, and to explore nature. Many state parks, historic sites and a broad range of great outdoor activities are all perched nearby.
The closest store is 1 mile away, on the main road, and recommended restaurants are 10-15 miles away (all in the Hammpground Guidebook).
No public transportation is available in the area. There are plenty of quiet country roads and good trails for hiking, jogging, bicycling and curvy roads for motorcycling. Shuttle services offered for a fee.

LOTS! Especially in the Hammpground. Be careful to put your food away at night to keep the animals safe.
