The SpaceThe campground is in the center of our 50-acre working family farm, where we raise vegetables, fruit, flowers, herbs, chickens, ducks, turkeys & honeybees using sustainable growing practices. Camp sites are in a secluded, natural area of the farm surrounded by woods, meadow, farm fields and a spring-fed pond. Natural beauty and wildlife abound - fall asleep to the hooting of owls and chirping of crickets, wake to the songs of bluebirds and scent of wild honeysuckle. We're far from any city lights, making for brilliant stargazing.
This is one of three campsites in our farm campground, located next to a small pond across a footbridge from the central campground. Campsites are placed out of direct line-of-sight from one another to give you personal space and privacy.
The glamping tent is furnished with a king-size bed (all bedding provided), throw rugs, comfy beanbag chair, floor pillows and vintage farm crate end tables. The site includes an outdoor campfire pit, picnic table and charcoal grill for your private use.
This site is ideal for couples and families with small children. It may accommodate a maximum of four adults if two sleep on the floor of the tent or put up a second tent in the site.
The central shared-use area of the campground has a small camp kitchen stocked with drinking water, propane camping stove, coffeemaker and basic cookware. There is a port-a-potty with handwashing supplies. Enjoy games of horseshoes, badminton, wiffle ball and our giant tractor-tire swing!
While this site has additional special touches described, the campground itself is rustic and off-the-grid, which is part of the draw and enjoyment. There is no running water, no shower, no electricity or wi-fi, and cell phone service may be spotty. This is is camping and you can expect to see some bugs and get a little dirty. Guest AccessThe campground is a pleasant 1/4 mile walk from the farm yard and visitor parking area. Private cars are not allowed to drive to the campground and we are strict about this to maintain the natural state and spirit of the camping area (and the intact state of your tires). We will drive you and your gear down on our haywagon on arrival (and back again at check out), and we also have small carts you can use throughout your stay.
Your site has its own picnic table, charcoal grill, campfire pit solely for your use. One stack of firewood is provided per night with your rental, and additional firewood may be purchased on the farm (do not bring in firewood from more than 50 miles away or outside of NYS to avoid spread of disease). We supply utensils, matches and a chimney starter for the grill at your site, but you'll need to bring your own charcoal (or buy some from us). We have some additional camping gear available to rent, subject to availability - please ask if there is something you need.
Within the central camping area you'll have shared use of the camp kitchen, port-a-potty and outdoor games. The camp kitchen is suitable for simple tasks like making coffee or heating a pot of food. Be mindful this space is shared with other campers and is not for storing your supplies - please plan to bring (or rent from us) your own cooler to store food in your site.
To fully experience your farm stay we invite you to explore and participate in farm activities. Meet friendly chickens & ducks in the farm yard, help with morning harvest, walk through gardens and hike the marked trails around the 52-acre property. Our weekend farm store offers fresh homegrown produce, eggs, chickens, homemade baked goods and more. Check the board in the barn to see what farm activities are going on each day, or ask us about customizing a tour or workshop for your group. Farm breakfasts are available for an additional charge.
We have two farm dogs on the property, along with many chickens & ducks. Pets are strictly not allowed in the Glamping site. (If your dog is dying to come with you, please consider the Meadow or Woods sites and confer with us before reserving.) Interaction with GuestsWe live in the farmhouse on the property 1/4 mile from the camping area. You will have privacy but we are available if you need us. We welcome and encourage you to engage in farm activities. This is a working farm, so you will see us around the property working. The NeighborhoodThe campground is surrounded entirely by natural and agricultural space - the farm is your neighborhood while you are here! If you simply want to get away from it all and relax in a natural setting, you'll probably find you don't need to go anywhere else during your stay. If you want to venture out, we are five miles outside the village of Greenville, a friendly small rural town with grocery and convenience stores, bank/ATM, pharmacies, park/playground, a drive-in showing classic movies, ice cream shops and several family-friendly dining options. A little further from town you'll find antique stores, horseback riding, several excellent restaurants, Zoom Flume Water Park, Huyck Nature Preserve and the Catskill State Park. There are a number of natural swimming holes in creeks within a short drive of the farm, and several state parks with beaches within a 45 minute drive. Getting AroundThe nearest Amtrak station is in Hudson, a 30 minute drive from the farm. There is no public transportation but we can provide information about a local private taxi service. It's advisable to have a car to get around during your stay.
By car we are 5 minutes from Greenville, 10 minutes from Rensselaerville, 30 minutes from Catskill & Hudson, 45 minutes from Albany and about 2 - 2 1/2 hours from New York City. Other Things to NoteStandard check-in window is 3-5 pm, check out window 10:30 - 11:30 am. We can usually accommodate earlier or later times upon request, subject to our farm work schedule. It's important to coordinate this with us if you want that haywagon ride to and from the campsite!
The base price for this site is based on two adults. Up to a maximum of four adults can be accommodated at higher rate shown. We are family-friendly and there is no additional charge for children but we do need to know who/how many are coming in your inquiry/reservation request.
We also have two traditional tent sites for farm stays (each can accommodate up to eight people):
For larger groups or events, the entire campground can be rented subject to availability, giving your group full private use of the central campground amenities and all three camping sites. Please contact us to discuss possible arrangements.
