Misty Mountain Farm is a true treasure. Not only is the farm extremely hands-on for campers interested in meeting the creatures, but there are numerous treats along the way. Wilbur, the boar is a really sweetie, as are the piglets! Pups, kitties, goats, horses, ponies, cows, birds, bunnies... just about everything! There are also hot and cold tubs, which is an awesome detox at the end of the day! Another amazing treat was a surprise delivery of fresh goat cheese, made daily! There are two sites, supplied with facilities, and some extra supplies for spicing up your time! I loved visiting the farm and the hills of VT.
Misty Mountian is a lovely farm in the hills of southern Vermont. I found some chanterelle while setting up camp, I was the only camper so it was really nice and quiet. The animals and especially the pig seemed very happy to see us, fed him a cucumber and some beans which he really liked. Be cautious if you're bringing your dog with you, while their dog was very friendly, the small one promptly marked my tent, car and anything else I had on the ground. When I asked they were happy to keep him up at the house... still, dog piss smell does not clean out of tent material the easiest. Caution advised....
It’s a farm!
The farm is definitely a farm! Lots of animals, which means animal sounds during the night.
PROS: tent platform is large and level. Picnic table and fire pit were well maintained. Small forest beyond the site made for great hanging in hammocks (provided by the site). Potable water was accessible and tasted great. We didn’t try out the solar shower (actually a propane-heated shower). Firewood was cheap And dry and the host was helpful in dropping it off (and the farm fresh eggs were delicious!)
Outhouse was exactly as described. Clean with hand sanitizer and TP, but still an outhouse.
CONS: whole site is a slope, so if you wanted to tent on the ground, it would be impossible. Fire pit was about 1 foot from the road, and the whole site feels like you’re in someone’s backyard (a bit close). The two sites are VERY close together (we were thankful the tiny house wasn’t booked, or we would have been on top of each other). We brought two dogs that spent the entire time on leash (as requested by the host). It was quite frustrating to then have the camp dogs off leash come and harass our dogs. One was totally fine (an elderly little dog), but a large yellow lab came and tried to get...on top of...both dogs as well as myself and my friend. This was at 7:30 in the morning. The dog did not have a clear owner, and I was forced to bring the dog back to the main house (being jumped on all the way). No one answered my knocks so I was forced to tie the dog to a tree. I let the host know about the situation via text. Her only response was to say ‘we don’t have a yellow lab, he belongs next door’
We did have some miscommunication with the host. I did not see an option to put in how many cars in when booking. When we showed up with three cars (coronavirus and such), I received a text from the host that we could only have one car because that was what was in the booking. I apologized for the mistake. Overall I felt Shannon was not particularly solution-oriented in her communication with me.
The swimming hole down the road was lovely, except for being harassed and yelled at by most of the locals driving past our out-of-state cars and yelling ‘go home!’ or ‘flatlanders’ - somewhat distressing. The River was clean and cool and great on a hot day. Beware: lots of poison ivy on the trail down to the river. The host gave good directions to it. Easy parking on the side of the road.
My partner and I had an amazing two days at Misty Mountain Farm. Sunrise next to the farm animals, watching ducklings exploring their world, lovely hosts (Sharon and AL), breakfast with farm eggs, goat cheese, and fresh milk. Local hikes are only a 15 minute drive away, and the farm is nestled between two cute towns. A very relaxing experience, and we will be back
My wife and I had a great time at Misty Mountain. The farm itself is beautiful and relaxing with great views of the forest and nearby mountains. The nighttime sky was littered with stars upon stars upon stars and the sunrise the next morning was pretty spectacular, especially with all that mist - it felt like we were actually in the clouds at times.
The owner, Al, was super accommodating and even brought us winter squash and fresh peppers from their garden. He also had meat for sale in freezers in their little store (beef, lamb, chicken, rabbit). And when the sites 5 gallon water jug ran out, he was quick to fill it up again.
The campsites themselves were clustered together in an open grass area next to the dirt road - we counted four in total - but we were the only campers on the property our first night so we had our pick (we booked site #1 on hipcamp). If you're looking for secluded forest camping, this may not satisfy, but you could always walk your tent further into the woods that border the sites. The outhouse was very clean too!
The farm definitely has its charm - multiple horses, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, and the largest pig I've ever seen.
Would definitely recommend to friends for a low-key weekend hanging out in nature.
My husband and I had a nice stay at Misty Mountain Farm. We stayed for one night and they were all welcoming and very helpful. The outhouse was very clean and we loved to see so many animals on their farm. It was very beautiful being on the green mountains and you could see green mountains in the distance on the farm. Cell phone reception was very good there. They have a small grill to cook,tables chairs, and a fire pit all in great condition. Would definitely recommend for a nice camping getaway on a farm. They have a small town nearby and many lakes. :)
Misty Mountain Farm is just amazing. The farm is beautiful, the animal are amazing. Wilbert is just great, go pet him! They gave us goat cheese which they make at the farm, you must try it, it's amazing! We will go back!
We would definitely stay here again! Al and his wife have a beautiful property, where you play with all their animals and free explore the grounds. We were even given fresh milk and eggs one morning.
Mountain top alongside the animals
Beautiful mountaintop farm. You’ll be camping right alongside the animal enclosures and the roosters will wake you up before the sun does. It’s definitely a misty mountain in the early hours, so expect anything left outside overnight to be dry when you come back to it in the morning.
Site is on a slope but they have a nice tent platform available. I just pitched my tent in the far corner near the woods where it was a bit flatter, but still slept on a slope.
Outhouse, shower, and water available. It’s a shame a previous camper gave this site a bad review because of cobwebs in the outhouse. If a few cobwebs bother you then maybe camping isn’t your thing! Would have been a great opportunity to grab a stick and spend a few minutes clearing them (Leave it better than you found it”) Speaking of leaving it better, I got permission to cut back some of the vines attacking the pear trees on the site, but my knife wasn’t cut out for the task. Maybe a future camper can help to cut it back a bit.
There’s a farm store which I didn’t visit, but also a full supermarket/gas station at the bottom of the mountain if you go right out of the drive and then left at the stop sign at the bottom. I headed to Vermont after this stop and didn’t pass another gas station for 1.5 hours after leaving, so be sure to fill up if you’re headed that way.
Cons: very little privacy if the neighboring site is occupied, site is sloped with little available shade, the fire pit is right next to the dirt road, and the woods behind the campsite is a pine grove with very small twigs and pine cones, not any real firewood as advertised.
Highly recommend overall!
