When can we come back?
HOWL is an incredible place, and Michele and Lani were wonderful and welcoming Hosts.
You drive up a steep, unpaved road right to the end, park your car near the main house, and then enter this gorgeous conservation area run by amazing women!
We pitched our tent on top of the property, overlooking the rolling green hills -- there are a couple places to choose from on this property. Ours was a short (less than a minute!) walk to the AMAZING outhouse (complete with reading material), water, and fire pit. We experienced total solitude as we were the only Hipcampers, cooked over a fire, sat by the pond, went to bed early and woke up to the music of songbirds.
This is a truly special place, we're already planning our return trip.
The Huntington Open Women’s Land is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay, with an inspiring mission. The property is beautiful, and contains extensive trail systems with access to Vermont mountains. Also, there was a pond, a big firepit area with lots of chairs, and many areas to choose from for setting up our tent. The hosts are very kind and helpful. We had a lovely time staying here, and hope to come back!
Fantastic experience at howl
Our group had a wonderful time at HOWL. The land was absolutely beautiful and well cared for, the women who greeted us were kind and helpful, and the campsite was perfect. No complaints at all -- we only wish we had stayed longer!
Howl is magic
Our stay at HOWL was incredible! We met Meg and Robin who were incredibly friendly and thoughtful throughout our entire stay. The land itself is absolutely breathtaking - wild flowers, apple trees, surrounded by views of the distant mountains. Not to mention the chickens, horses coming through, an enchanting little compost toilet, gardens, fire pit - HOWL is clearly a special place to us and to all those fortune enough to come before us. Highly, highly recommend.
What a wonderful stay ! Beautiful site ! You can admire the sunrise and the sunset over the mountains, walt in the woods, relax near the pond...and have an access to a fridge. It’s a peaceful place with kind people. I will certainly come back !
We had a great trip to HOWL! We stayed for two nights in mid-October to enjoy the foliage. The campsites are very spacious and private. They also have great views of the surrounding mountains. The outhouse was beautiful and well kept. We were allowed to use a microwave and a fridge outside of the caretaker's cabin, which made the mornings easier. Strong wifi near the house. Meg gave us an incredibly warm welcome, and we were able to spend some time with the horses that are allowed to graze on the property. We felt safe and welcomed by everyone we met there. I hope to come again soon!
