Enjoy some Vermont glamping on our beautiful hillside when you stay in our adorable, teal-colored Coleman Camper from the 70's. Outfitted with a double bed and composting toilet, as well as a mini-kitchen with a sink, propane stove, and cooler, this camper has all you need for a comfortable stay on our hillside surrounded by stunning views of the village of Chelsea and the First Branch of the White River. We also provide you with organic coffee and herbal tea blends from our farm for your enjoyment.
Free Verse Farm is a hilltop herb farm run by two art-making, herb-loving farmers. The property boasts twenty sloping, knoll-laden, open acres overlooking the First Branch of the White River as it passes through the scenic village of Chelsea, Vermont. We have incredible views, forest trails that offer magical woodland wanderings, and a wide range of campsites available in our fields.
We also invite you to explore our cultivated fields of herbs and vegetables and become acquainted with the wide variety of tea, culinary, and medicinal herbs that we grow and process on our farm. You can also visit with our friendly flock of chickens and the cows that spend their summer munching our delicious green pastures. Our full line of herbal products are for sale out of our farmhouse apothecary. Seasonal vegetables, meat, and eggs may also be for sale.
The town of Chelsea hosts a weekly summer farmers market on Fridays from 3-6pm (May through September), and is also home to a pub (The Wagon Wheel), two town greens, a small library, and a general store. Within 30-45 minutes of our farm you can reach the larger towns of Montpelier (state capital), South Royalton, Woodstock, and the Upper Valley Region (Dartmouth College), all of which offer a wide variety of attractions and services. Upon your arrival you will be given a welcome packet with information about our area and we'll be happy to provide you with any other tips you're looking for.
We look forward to hosting campers and sharing our love of this land with all who visit. We can't wait to meet you!

The vibe at Vintage Camper with a View
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Met Taylor at the farmhouse and he was very friendly. The view at the trailer is way better than pictures portray. We made a fire in the firepit in the evening, saw stars and shooting stars, and made some coffee and tea (from the farm) on the stove in the trailer in the morning. This is a great option to have if you aren't sure to have great weather. Taylor suggested a great hike on the trip home. Love Vermont. Love middle kingdom. Free Verse Farm is a great stay!
Hands down one of the most lovely morning views one could hope for--the mist rising off the valley and the sun beaming in warmly from the east. The camper was comfortable and clean, and spending the night near a campfire under the Milky Way was wonderful. The property is gorgeous and an easy drive to Woodstock, hikes (and hikes and hikes), and other attractions. Carl and I would definitely recommend!
Well, this was a real gem to find while I travelled through Vermont. The setup was simple but very homey. I enjoyed the quiet of night with a campfire, took a little hike, and loved strolling the herb farm. Also, the hosts were very generous with their time and knowledge of the land. Definitely top of my list in places to stay.
I wish we could have stayed for another night or two. The camper was cozy and it had everything we needed for the night. We happened to have stayed on a rainy/cloudy weekend, we still had great views once the clouds lifted. Misha and Taylor were great host and had printed directions and information once we arrived. Definitely worth the drive and stay, and I can’t wait to go back again to visit middle VT!
