Places to see near Elsewhere Homestead
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Coyote Ridge at Colby's private campground overlooks a beautiful forest and an ice cold creek. The trees overhead kept us cool in the heat of the day, and the geology of the area assured solitude and peace. The fire pit was large enough to create zones for camp cooking, and there was more than enough wood to be collected. We enjoyed a very easy hike in the nearby Town Forest, which features an arboreal oddity in the form of impressive Black Gum Trees that are, in the northern part of the United States apparently, unique to this forest. I will definitely be returning.
Cozy private ledge above a brook
Really nice private and scenic site. It is set away from other campers so expect a little hike (a little less than 10 minutes) of moderate difficulty to get to the ledge but well worth the trip. We loved being on a ridge above a babbling brook and small waterfalls. Colby and Aria were super nice and helpful hosts, we would def recommend this site for those that want a slightly more remote experience while being close to civilization. Campsite is relatively small in size due to being on a ledge but we fit our medium sized tent and chairs along the firepit just fine. We chose to bring our berkey water filter and it worked great filling up from the nearby falls! We ended up staying on a weekend where all 3 sites on the property were booked with groups of people and noise and privacy was not an issue. A short drive to Brattleboro to the food co-op, restaurants, thrift stores, art and music and awesome river swimming! Thanks again to Colby and Aria for having us and being such great hosts, hope to see you again soon!
Sweet woods spot
Super chill spot in the middle of the woods! The river running right underneath is awesome, and the fire pit is nice too. Be prepared to hike in a bit to the site, but that adds to the privacy and quiet once setting up camp (quiet except for so many cool birds!)
And Colby and Aria are great hosts :)
Peace & quiet
We had a wonderful time staying at Coyote Ridge. The site is about 5 minutes from where you park next to their wonderful vintage VW bus. Colby and Aria we're very nice and observed social distancing and covid-19 protocols. The property itself is beautiful and has a wonderful creek flowing through it that provides more than enough water for general use including bathing and cooking. There's plenty of downed wood for your campfire and this hill side vantage point provides a beautiful view to enjoy the quiet ambiance of the forest. Oh, and If you forget something once you arrive it's only 10 or 15 minute drive to the nearest store.We would definitely stay here again.
Serene vermont mountain camping
Elsewhere Homestead was everything I was looking for in an overnight stay. Pulling up I was greeted by the hosts who were friendly and very helpful. There are three camping sites on the property and the signage was excellent leading you to each one. You'll pass the outhouse with composting toilet as you walk to the sites which was clean and convenient.
Coyote Ridge is the farthest site and the most private. The view was spectacular and the sounds of the brook below were meditative. The fire pit perched at the edge of the ridge was a creative and appealing feature. Walking a little past the site you come to a place where the brook gently falls down the rocky slope. All in all it was the perfect site to spend a night camping.
Unless like me you forgot your 2-3 person tent and had to use your 6 person tent (thankfully stored in the back of your car) which was slightly too large for the level portion of the site. But the host was super accommodating and let me switch to the Owl Grove site which thankfully hadn't been booked and possessed a larger level area. (True to its name, I heard the call of barred owls in the distance.)
I didn't know what to expect when I arrived but I was not expecting this spot to instantly become one of my favorite places to camp. I am definitely planning on returning to Elsewhere Homestead with a more appropriate tent for Coyote Ridge and trying out the third site, Bear's Den (which, if I had completely forgotten to bring a tent, would have been a great backup option).
