I had a really nice time at Sandy’s place. The site was very large and there were different options in terms of being in the open or in a more wooded area. The site was very quiet. Privacy was exceptional. The views were beautiful from the area. Sandy was very kind and hospitable. She gave a nice tour of her studios. There is also a sauna! Would definitely stay here again.
Communal camping w/ swimming access
Sandy is a great host, and really goes the extra mile for her guests. We were there on a holiday weekend and all the sites were booked. She kept the communal fire going, put out water with mint leaves on the communal picnic tables, and was accessible and helpful when we had questions. The campsites are all on the property, but you'll get a slightly different experience depending on which one you stay at - some are in the trees, some in an open field, another on the top of a hill, some in the ferns. The swimming pond is a drive (or a an uphill bike ride) down the road, and really seals the deal on making this a wonderful camping option, since you can start and end your day with a swim!
Firefly and daisy filled campsite!
Sandy lives on a beautiful piece of land, full of wild flowers that she harvests for medicinal purposes. Sandy is a very gracious host and free spirit. She provides friendly conversation and privacy. The tent site was lovely, cooler temps in the shade with a really relaxing hammock already set up. We were able to get potable water from a hose that was set up near the community fire pit (a pit that she fires up every morning and night that can be used by all campers although some tent sites do have their own fire pit - just ask to find out which ones). There are maybe 4-5 sites on her land. We used the community fire pit to cook and it was enjoyable saying hello to other folks who were on the land, but we also had a fair amount of privacy while cooking our meals over the fire. The bucket toilet is VERY clean, although it's bare necessities, the area where the toilet is set up is enclosed, has a light, comes equips with the lime and the chips to place over your business in the bucket. The land gets filled with fireflies at night and there is a really refreshing pond down the street to take a dip in and to rinse off a day of hiking in its cool waters. Really recommend Sandy's hipcamp!
Beautiful farm <3
Sandy was a very accommodating Host. Though I made a mistake while booking, looking for a place to park my RV overnight while passing through to ME. She didn't miss a beat once she found out I was in an Rv and not a tent and made great plans to accommodate us. Thank you Sandy!
Sandy was the best host! Very accommodating and friendly. Her farm and studio were absolutely beautiful and less than an hour from Stowe where we went to hike. There was THE BEST pond a mile down the road that was clean and private. Will definitely be back!
Sandy’s property is magical with something for everyone. We stayed on Site #1 on wide open plains with beautiful sights all around. There is a camp site for all different tastes - woods, hamock, plains etc...My son was thoroughly intrigued by the pottery studio, so Sandy graciously gave us a behind the scenes tour complete with a thoughtful momento for my budding artist. Wonderful stay! Hope to come back!
Dee light full
THIS place! Wow. Sandy was incredible, the farm was delightful, and Sandy went above and beyond in every way imaginable from community campfire, delicious homemade strawberry jam and fresh honeycomb to everything else. Delighful x 1000
