One man's junk is another man's art
The site was a mixed bag.
The positives: Seth, our host, was awesome. Very communicative, accessible, and thoughtful (leaving toys for my kids). The site itself has a vision, to be funky and artsy. There are beautiful ferns and nature abounding. The beds were nice. It was the perfect size for our family of 4. There were 3 ways to prepare dinner (stove, grill, fire). The drum tree was fun for all ages. The wildflowers were breathtaking and the stars bewildering (we could easily see the milky way on our clear night)
The negatives: the "art" comes across as junky. There is junk everywhere. It is obvious this is a site in progress and I appreciate that. The porch was cluttered, the trailer was cluttered. There were no comfortable places to sit. The neighbors were obvious (but we did feel immersed in nature). The paths are not well cleared.
All in all, I think I little more work and this place could really be somewhere special that I know the host is trying to make it. For now, it was a fun experience, but not one we need to repeat.
An artistic eco-trailer experience
Our Stay at Seth's Whenland Eco-Trailer was wonderful. It was an artistic getaway tucked into the woods. The forest growth thick enough to not see the neighbors and have plenty of privacy. There is tons to look at on this property. Seth is artistic and has made some rubbage art pieces including a fun hanging drum center. The fire pit area is cozy and there are plenty of chairs and hammocks to hang and lounge in. And Seth has tons of fun crafts and entertainments to play with. Seth himself is super chill and laid back. Would recommend to a friend :)
Lively, energetic, artistic and fun. The Whenland Eco-trailer was such a fun stay for myself, my husband our two dog! We loved relaxing and hearing all the beautiful sounds of nature and taking in of all the lovely art and sculptures. Seth was such a wonderful host and you could see all the hard work he put in his land and art work. He also let us come up earlier then our originally planed booking do to weather. The site is also a short drive to the village of Naples and The Cummings Nature center. Thank you for having us Seth, and we can not wait to stay at your spot again!

It was so beautiful and the pond sounds were great. If you’re truly looking to unplug, look no further. None of us had service but just a short drive down the road fixed that (just in case of emergency). Seth was super friendly and accommodating. I hope I can go back again soon!
Had a really lovely time staying in the Whenland Trailer. It was cozy inside and the futon we slept on was plenty comfortable. The property was isolated from the neighbors and we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves (except one quick visit from a neighbors dog). Features like a rock garden, found-material sculptures, and other art around the property felt like they were intentionally integrated into the land and were really fun to interact with. Seth gave us some really great recommendations for places to hike and check out in the area. Being out of cell reception was also a welcome joy to really enjoy the time. Will definitely look to make a return trip & recommend to anyone looking for an off the grid experience close to all kinds of Finger Lakes beauty!
A wonderfully unique getaway
This was a great place to stay to just get away and relax. The kids really enjoyed banging rhe clunkamaphone and nights by the campfire. It was more spacious than I expected which was really great for our last night since it rained much of the evening. We also loved exploring Cummings Nature Center, literally just down the road. Seth was also a very gracious host, making sure everything was ready for our stay and easy to communicate with.
We had a great time at the eco trailer. The inside of the the trailer is cozy, but still has plenty of space for 5-6 people to stay. It rained heavily while we were there, but the trailer has got a great roof overtop so it wasn’t a big deal at all. We also loved sitting by the pond and looking at the stars late at night. It was very peaceful sitting in the little nooks with all the windows open and the rain beating again the tin roof overhead. Seth was very responsive, and it’s clear he has put a lot of time and energy into this space.
