Our property straddles the Barton/Glover line in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Last year, Glover earned the title of "Town Doing the Best Job of Keeping Vermont Weird" in the Seven Daisies Awards. The well known Bread and Puppet Theatre and Museum puts on fantastical, political, sometimes heady but always masterful productions all summer.

My time at Birdhous was so pleasant - and inspiring! I love the work these young women are in the midst of and it is exciting to support them with Hipcamp. The property is beyond fabulous - looking out over a stunning hill onto their barn and home. The different tent sites are fabulous - #1 is my favorite (but Emma said she loved #2. They're all great...)! My quick dip in the river was such a pleasant surprise. Wish this crew all of the success!

Settled into this spot as happy as could be

Great stay. Campsite was private in the woods, site was flat for my tent, and plenty of wood around for campfire.
The host was nice. I was very impressed with her farm and all that she has going on, which is a lot.
I spent most my time fishing the river which is stocked with brook trout!

A lovely evening in the trees!

Site 1 is spacious. It’s a short uphill, grassy walk from an access road. There's a tiny pullout area where you can park while unloading equipment. It's a bit longer of a walk from the actual parking area near the property's entrance, but it's a pleasant one, taking you through a field or along the access road past an old barn. The views along the walk and from the hill are picturesque.

There was another party on Site 2, but we barely noticed them as the two sites are nicely spaced. There are shared, well maintained composting toilets nearby.

The river access is quaint but not so easy to reach -- you have to carefully climb down a slightly eroded river bank. The water is clear and refreshing. Climbing up the bank is made easier if there’s someone to lend you a hand.

We found the location perfect, less than 30 minutes from East Burke where we spent two days mountain biking. It was nice to get away from the crowds and relax with a hot meal in the trees.

My friend and I loved staying here! The host was very nice, the lights up to the site were essential, and it was a beautiful night under the stars. The only thing we couldn't find were the so called bathrooms, but we just went to the gas station up the street!

We arrived to the farm close to midnight and had no problem finding the camp site. Jes had given us good directions and the solar powered lights illuminating the pathway were really helpful. The camp site (#1) was big, beautiful and clean with a good firepit.

Jes was kind enough to show us around her beautiful farm and it's truly inspiring. The work she and her partners are doing is extremely cool not to mention their chickens that sleep up in a tree!?

All in all, they were very hospitable, very respectful of our privacy and super kind people. I highly recommend staying here
