Enjoy natural camping 1600 ft above sea level in the Catskill Mountains 2.5 hours from NYC in our fabulous Sun Barn!

The Sun Barn is a 20 foot x 12 foot structure made from mostly recycled and second hand materials.  Dozens of windows make it feel like you're camping outside, but you're protected from rain, wind and any uninvited animals.

Inside the barn is a built in practice putting area.  We provide a pair of putters and golf balls to use.

For the true glamping experience use the 2 single sized real mattress.  (Just please bring your own blankets, and pillows.  We DO provide a set of fresh clean sheets.)

Located in a large grass field  met with a wall of great maples that surround you.   During clear evenings gaze upon the astonishing display of night stars and Milky Way.  

We are located on an isolated dirt road and surrounded by 1000's of acres of farm land and state parks. It is a 30 minute car drive to Windham Ski resort. 1 hour 15 minutes from the Kaaterskill Falls. 1 hour 15 minutes to Howe Caverns.

Many State parks are within an hours drive.  Their is the famous New York Times acclaimed Bees Knees Organic Cafe located 1 mile from our house that offers award winning organic breakfasts and lunches every weekend all year round.

During your walks along the dirt road you'll see majestic red barns and ponds along the way, also great for mountain biking.  Also meet interesting animals on the farm grounds of the Bees Knees Cafe including sheep, lamas, ducks, donkeys and goats.

You also have access to a 4 hole frisbee golf course located on the property.  We provide 2 frisbees free of charge.

Camp fires are NOT permitted, but we provide you with a propane BBQ grill.

NOTE: The bath tub is only operational from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend, and the water source is from a 55 gallon storage tank which collects rain from the roof, so no hot water just air temperature water.  Great for cooling off on a hot day or take a relaxing bubble bath in the evening.

I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen, his family, and one of his neighbors. They are really some of the friendliest people. They were all incredibly accommodating for anything I might have needed. I was given some choices about where to put up my tent, and I chose the wooded option since I had a hammock I wanted to string up. There are some farms along the very private dirt road that Stephen lives on. My car was a convenient distance from where I was able to set up. The views of the Catskills, sunset, and sunrise are all stunning. There's also a small field full of wildflowers right next to the spot I set up. I enjoyed a peaceful walk on the dirt road during sunset. I would be glad to camp here again.
