The vibe at ZiegenVine Homestead - tent sites
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a great site! You can see for miles up the Southern Tier valleys. The hosts are the nicest people. Their goats are adorable.
The sites are far enough away from each other that it makes you feel like you have the entire mountain to yourself. We rented the cabin and when the host described it as "rustic" we were initially hesitant. But it was cozy, with a brand new wood stove, and a porch. It was about 16x24' big. The wood to make the cabin came from trees right on the property. Talk about ecological! You can tell the family really cares for their land.
The camps are about a hundred yards from the road over the top of a hill. You may be able to drive to the sites if you have a high clearance 4WD, like a pickup. An AWD sedan might get stuck. Definitely ask the host about driving to your site well in advance of plans if that's important to you. But it isn't a far walk, and there may be other accommodations available. Getting stuck and digging ruts into their land would be a shame.
The hosts live right on the property, and we are real jealous! They were amazing people. We had a fantastic time. Hope to get back at some point.
Thanks for letting us stay!
ZiegenVine Homestead was the perfect location for our camping trip! Randy was very friendly and welcoming and met us as soon as we arrived. He gave us a tour of the farm and took us to pet two 2 week old baby goats, which was an adorable experience! The camp site was perfect; it had a great view and plenty of space for the 2 tents we set up. He also provided fire wood and 5 gallons of hand-washing water, which was helpful for rinsing out dishes and such. We hiked on a few of the trails that were cleared, and enjoyed the beautiful views. We were the only campers there this weekend, so we had an especially peaceful and relaxing experience, but there was some privacy between each campsite so even if additional campers were there, I don't think we would have felt crowded. We'd definitely go back for another camping trip!
We had an excellent stay at Randy and Allison's farm. Randy was very friendly when we arrived and helped us settle in after a quick tour. He introduced us to the farm animals and made sure we had enough firewood. We will definitely visit again soon.
Randy and Allison were very friendly and welcoming, and made sure we had everything we needed. The site was clean and well-stocked with firewood and water, had a beautiful view, and we got to hang out with the baby goats the next morning!
What a beautiful location and alison. Randy and their menagerie made us all feel welcome. Fresh eggs for the morning was an unexpected surprise and my kids got to milk the goats. Highly recommend.
