Have an amazing view of the stars when you stay with us at our hill-top lean-to. Located on 27 acres, this private lean-to is the perfect place to sleep under the moon-light. No tent needed, although there are spots to pitch one if you so choose.  The lean-to comes furnished with plenty of chairs, tables, and a futon bed with a bug net. You will need to bring your sleeping bags and groups of three or larger will want sleeping pads. We do provide a small campstove for your use with all your pots, pans, plates, and utensils. There is a cooler at the site for your food. There is a lovely picnic table under a tarp next to the lean-to and two hammocks for you to lounge in. There are tons of walking trails and neat places to explore on the property and in the local area. Plus, we'll help you plan your activities for your trip!

The Overlook Lean-To is AMAZING. The site is extremely clean, organized and well stocked. The fire pit is beautiful (surrounded by incredible rocks). The lean-to itself is a work of art and has great energy. The land is lovely and well-cared for. It's very private, but also accessible. My husband and I stayed for three nights and had friends join us for two. We had so much fun at the camp and in the area. But most importantly, Sheila and Bob are the best hosts. They are interesting, kind and cheerful people who put so much love into this piece of property over 35 years. And they make the BEST maple syrup. We hope to be back soon! The fall colors will be amazing up there, I'm sure.

We absolutely loved out stay at Overlook Lean-To. The property is beautiful and very private. The lean-to itself is very comfortable and fully equipped for cooking and campfires. Bob and Sheila were very welcoming and engaging. They called us beforehand to make sure we had directions, and gave great recommendations for hikes in the area. We will be back for sure.
Come stay here!! You won't regret it!!
