The vibe at Ardounie Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
DJ met us at the property and was a very gracious host. Communication during our stay was exceptional. A beautiful setting for a camp out on rolling farmland. The strings of lights and electric were an unexpected bonus. Highly recommend it!
We have been at Duncan's Piece of Heaven twice in 1 month. I think that it's more than clear we love the place! Loretta and Donald are lovely. They are super busy at their milk farm, however, they find the time to meet us, give us all the needed information (and firewood) and spend a little time with us around the fireplace. I strongly suggest to keep some time and visit their farm. I never expected in my glass of milk and in my burgers, there are so much work and passion!
Donald and his wife were great hosts and given the chance we will be going back to visit them again. We were in a rush this overnight trip to test and mess with gear, we had the dogs with us and this were a bit hectic on our end. When we have more time to enjoy the corn maze and the area we'd like to go back.
DJ and Loretta were amazing hosts. We arrived well after dark, and rather than struggle with setting up camp in the darkness, they offered a trailer on site for us to stay in our first night. Waking up the next day to the beauty of their land was a great surprise - we were camped right next to the start of their corn maze!
They provided tons of wood for use in their fire circles and access to fresh water to drink and hose down with. They were close by in case we needed anything, but didn't feel like they were hovering - which was great. We went to check out the meteor shower, and even with heavy cloud cover had a more than enjoyable experience laying out on the ground as the fog descended around us.
If you're looking for a completely private campsite, however, this isn't that. There were a couple of other sites very close to ours. But we did get to meet another couple adventuring around, so that was great. Also, if you have an aversion to bugs you'll want to mind the sweat bees. They're more a nuisance than any real problem, and we weren't bothered - but something to consider when camping in a corn field.
Would absolutely recommend to other campers and hope to stay again in the future.
Donald and his wife Loretta were an absolute pleasure to stay with! We hope to return sometime as they were the best hosts you could ask for. My husband and I camped here with our dogs for two nights and stayed in one of their lean-tos near their corn maize. It was a delightful little spot and we got to hang out with them for a bit and Donald even took my husband hiking on the AT during the day while I was running a race. They welcomed us to their property and even showed us around, teaching us quite a lot about their work as dairy farmers. Highly recommend!
