Mackintosh Homestead is a five acre organic homestead in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire, just 90 minutes from Boston and Brattleboro, VT. We maintain 2,000 square feet (and growing) of annual garden space, 500 square feet of perennial space, and permaculture inspired landscaping. In addition to medicinal herbs, fruit trees, and berry bushes, we raise chickens.

There are three locations for camping that are a short (1-3 minutes) walk from the driveway/parking and a short walk to the outdoor shower. All sites have a firepit with lots of campwood around for burning and also come with an 8x8 rubber footprint (The HEMLOCKS has two 8x8 rubber footprints). FIELDSIDE has one tent site and is, well, next to the field! The OLD ROAD is nearest to the house/outdoor shower and pond. The HEMLOCKS has the most privacy and this wooded space can accommodate 3 - 4 tents, it is a short walk to the outdoor shower.

My friend and I could not get over how perfect this place was. We had a blast running around with the dog, swimming in the pond, and hanging out around the fire. The hosts are so hospitable and they helped us get our fire going when our wood was damp. Definitely recommend this place, such a gorgeous little farm with lots of projects and updates, like the tiny house that their building.

When we arrived we met David who greeted us with information, nearby sites for various activities, food options in and in nearby towns and a local guidebook for hiking. He was welcoming and made himself available to us at any time--we asked him to double check our site for poison ivy due to a recent experience and he willingly and helpfully alleviated our paranoia.

We loved, loved, loved our stay. David and Alisha's land is tame and wild at the same time. The wooded area where we camped, The Hemlocks, felt removed and tranquil from the main house. We had no signal while staying there and were thankful for the time to be fully present during our time out in nature. Our two sons (9 and & 7) were walking on top of the stone wall, running back and forth to play by the pond, rolled around in the cleared field and explored the woods behind our site. We even had their awesome cat, Acorn, as a companion the second day.

We did not realize what a great location Mackintosh Homestead is situated in NH. We were nearby several small, charming towns in NH and the options for outdoor activities were numerous.

We were able to buy freshly laid eggs from the hens at Mackintosh Homestead and David and Elisha also sell homemade bread. Their homestead is organic, so bring natural, organic soaps, shampoos, sunscreen, etc. The outdoor shower was great.

We would definitely consider returning in the future.

Enjoyed the stay! Wonderful hosts! The campsite, being in hilly southern New Hampshire, was on the hillside over looking the home and farm yard. Pleasant night view watch the moon set over the hill. A nice warm outdoor shower to use as well. I hope to come back again next year.

I booked a quick getaway to the Mackintosh Homestead. They are located far enough off of Route 31 that there was only minimal traffic noise and yet is still fairly close to Boston. Upon arrival, our host provided a tour of some of the features of the property including a tiny house which they are building. My campsite was in a hemlock grove above their field which was very peaceful and private. I also took a swim in the pond which, while a bit low due to a period of minimal rainfall, was still refreshing. For those seeking a break from technology, the property is also just out of reach of cellular towers, though the host still managed to mostly respond in a timely manner to emails. Upon my departure, I purchased a carton of eggs and then headed to breakfast at the Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough and for a short hike on my way back to the city. Overall a good experience.

We enjoyed our stay! The Hemlocks was a private area with a great fire pit and lots of fire wood.

This campsite is great! There are a couple of sites - ours, the Hemlocks, is up the hill from the homestead slightly into the woods. There are a couple of tent spots set up with rubber mats, and we had no trouble finding flat areas for two other tents. There's a firepit with convenient stump for cooking, and a nice walk through the woods along an old (old, old) road bordered by stone walls. The hosts are great, and offer eggs and bread from their farm for sale - the bread was delicious! Overall definitely recommend.
