Pitch your tent or hang a hammock  in a cozy meadow or a shady forest on our peaceful little 20-acre homestead. Enjoy the seasonal bounty of our organic farm, including berry-picking, fresh vegetables from our garden, fruit from our orchard, eggs from our friendly chickens & ducks, mind-blowing leaf peeping & majestic hidden (and not-so-hidden) swimming holes within a few minutes' drive. Hike the massive open woods behind our homestead and enjoy all of the natural beauty that Vermont has to offer.

The fruit growing on our property includes: apples, pears, asian pears, peaches, quince, pawpaw, raspberries, blackberries, black raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, grapes, kiwi berries, akebia, silverberry, currants, and more! 

Windham, VT is a sleepy little farming town with a population of under 500. The people here are delightfully relaxed and humble. The community-run café at the bottom of our road is the perfect place to stop for a cup of coffee and a fresh pastry to start your day (or a sandwich, daily special soup, or seasonal slice of pie). You'll also find locally raised meat, produce, honey & maple syrup alongside a variety of locally made artisan crafts. Windham's claim to fame is Hamilton Falls, so be sure to stop here for a hike or a dip (or both, depending on the season). 

We are a working homestead, and we have two free-ranging working livestock dogs. They are kind & friendly, but they are working dogs and their job is to protect our livestock. This means that they use their exceptional sense of smell and strong barks to ward off potential predators (bears, coyotes, foxes, raccoons). Our dogs work in shifts, so on some nights our Great Pyrenees can be heard barking occasionally. This is especially true in the fall, when native wildlife is very active. If you are particularly sensitive to the occasional bark, we will set you up at a site furthest from our home!

    Emma and Alexander were very accommodating and relaxed. They helped us find the right parking spot and gave good advice around the area. Very quiet at night. Cute chickens, ducks, goats and dogs. I would stay here again

    Alex&Emma were so nice and accommodating! The homestead is private and beautiful with lots of options for camping. Lots of room! Very knowledgeable and helpful hosts and their animals were so loving and cute. We had a really great time and the area is absolutely beautiful. Easy drive to Brattleboro and other surrounding fun. Able to gather our own wood from the property for fires and they have great well water! It was a wonderful stay!

    We decided to get away from New York City for the 4th of July for some peace and quite with our 1 year old baby and 2 year old pup. Being avid campers and recently moving from Colorado, we headed up to Vermont for a few days to enjoy the outdoors. I came across Hipcamp and thought it was a great idea since I was unfamiliar with National forests on the East Coasts. We originally booked this campsite because of the location and we were so pleased with our experience that we booked a second night! Emma and Alex were wonderful hosts! Very kind and super accommodating. When we arrived at the campsite they brought us cold water and fresh eggs and even let us borrow some bug spray after we realized we forgot ours. They were very responsive to any questions we may have had and gave very thorough directions to local hikes and swimming holes. They have a beautiful property with lots of fun animals that wander around. We definitely would like to come back in the fall when the leaves start to change! Back in Brooklyn and missing nature already!

    This was my first camping solo trip and first HipCamp experience. Emma was very welcoming and met me shortly after I arrived (actually one of her chickens greeted me first! 😉) . She was friendly with a jug of water in hand. She was easy to book with, especially considering it was a last minute decision to go. She also offered some local site suggestions. The location of the site was nice, however there the second site was not far away. There was a group - they were not roudy or obnoxious but I could see them from my site. I thought it would be more private. I had also added the firewood on to my checkout, but didn't have any at the site. I should note that I also did not bring this up when Emma came to greet me. I was able to use some wood I found, but it was wet and very difficult to get a good fire going. The street wasn't too far away, so I could hear cars often. The land and trails were beautiful. There is a small country store at the bottom of the street that serves coffee. The shop is quaint and adorable. Her two dogs came at different times too. Both were friendly and beautiful. One joined me on my little walk to scope out the area. Overall, it was a decent experience.

    I think this would be perfect for multiple people going together! I also think this was a good first experience.

    Hi Julia -- sorry that you felt that your stay was less than optimal! I just wanted to note a couple things about your review, so that future guests are accurately informed. In all likelihood, you were hearing us collecting wood on our four-wheeler in the woods, rather than cars driving down the road. The spot we have designated for camping is actually quite set back from the road. Our homesite is located closer to the road, and we only really hear motorcycles and the very occasional oversized trucks. Unfortunately, our campers will always be exposed to the sights and sounds that come along with camping on a working homestead. We hope that we have made this clear enough in our listing info. Also, as I had mentioned to you upon your arrival, our homesite is about 300 feet away from the campsite, through the woods and we nearly are always available. While I apologize that we didn't have wood waiting for you at the fire pit upon your arrival, it would have taken us only a few moments to bring over a load.
