The vibe at Stony Creek Farmstead
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Kate and Dan are pro farm stay hosts. Seriously. They’ve been hosting farm stays at Stony Creek Farmstead in the Catskills for nine years.
There’s plenty of land to pitch your own tent but you’d be missing out on the unique platform tent accommodation. The platform tents have a wood floor and can sleep six people. There’s a room with a king-size bed, a cabinet bed for two, and another room with a bunk bed. The tent also includes a flush toilet and a kitchen with cold running water, a cooler, and a wood cookstove. Hot showers can be taken in the nearby shower house.
Although there’s plenty to do in the Catskills region - hiking, antiquing, and exploring small towns - you probably won’t want to leave the farm. Disconnect and enjoy the lack of electricity or get out and explore the pastures and gardens. You’ll find cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens galore. There’s even a pond for swimming on hot summer days. Kate is also an educator and this farm stay will allow you to watch the daily milking and join the Saturday farm tour.
You won’t go hungry. The farm store stocks their own meat, eggs, and vegetables as well as other products such as pancake mix, syrup, yogurt, soup, dish soap, t-shirts, yarn, and more. Don’t miss picking up the morning farm basket chock full of fresh baked bread, eggs, bacon, and vegetables; then head back to your platform tent to cook up a fantastic breakfast. And, on Saturday nights you can mingle with other guests at a wood-fired brick oven pizza night.
My family had a magnificent weekend at Stony Creek Farmstead! The setting is idyllic and such a reprieve from our normal hectic life. The platform tent is super comfy and the potbelly stove is easy to use to provide heat and cook with. The farm store is very well stocked and the homemade bread is so DELISH - so were the fresh eggs and meat. Kate gave us an insightful farm tour after letting us milk the cow and we were able to get up and close to all the farm animals on the property. Kate even let us borrow some wooden blocks and a train set so that our 2yo son could play with them. This is a such a special and relaxing place. Thank you Kate for the hospitality!
