Pitch your tent in our beautiful secluded field after a day of biking or kayaking around Lake Champlain. We are a small hobby farm with ducks and chickens and probably several lambs, and you can see them as you relax near the 1870's farmhouse. There is a beach right down the road, and we are right off the  bike path from Burlington to Montreal. Right now the only bathroom is in the house, but we are planning on a composting toilet for summer. We are bike friendly, with a secure place to store them if you need to. Kayaks and canoes, too.

Cat and Rick were absolutely wonderful, friendly, and welcoming hosts. The camping area is behind their home with ample space for privacy and visiting with the nearby sheep if you like. It's a short walk from their place to the shore of Lake Champlain for a swim or shore stroll. For now, there are shower and bathroom facilities inside the house, though they are working on a composting toilet for Summer 2019. Rick makes a hell of an espresso. He and Cat are a wealth of knowledge on things to do in the surrounding area as well as VT history. Highly recommended!

Relaxing for an afternoonAll set up at the site closer to the house near the sheep pen with fire pit.Nearby beach offers swimming in Lake Champlain"Black Sheep" was the most gregarious of the three.

Cat was a lovely host and a joy to meet. There was great space to set up the tent toward the back of the property, and a small fire circle nearby. The dog Pippen, the chickens, and the sheep were a delight (even the early morning rooster!). Having access to the bathroom in the house was very helpful. We were easily able to bike to White's beach and to the bike ferry area.

Shelter Pond Farm was easy to find, and our host, Cat, was a delight to meet and talk to. Our next immediate meeting was with her dog, Pippin. Pippin is friendly, cute, and could easily be mistaken for the fourth sheep on the property. The sheep are kept in by an electric fence, so be careful about that! In addition to sheep, there are chickens, and a beautiful garden. There are some perfect flat grassy spots for tents in the backyard near the pond. In addition to our tent, our friend brought her camper van that she was able to drive back to where we had camp set up. There was a concert festival type thing happening at the Snow Farm Vineyard about 3 miles away while we were there, and we drove over there to check it out. Lots of dancing and country music and lots of fun! There was also a public beach that we stopped at along the way to skip some rocks and put our feet in the water. After we came back from the vineyard, we made dinner and got ready for bed. Cat gave us access to her bathroom in the house, which was super convenient. One thing we forgot that I would recommend bringing is bug spray (rookie mistake). Cat's house and property, with its view of the lake and gorgeous backyard, will make you envious in the best way.

We didn't want to leave the beach.I highly recommend spending some time on this beach off West Shore Road.The van was a nice supplement to our camp space.There are a few prime locations for setting up a hammock.
