Our private cabin is close to all Berkshire cultural attractions and outdoor activities while nestled on an quiet countryside organic farm. It's a great base for exploration, a romantic hideaway, or a quiet writing retreat.
PLEASE keep in mind at this time of year that weather can be a significant factor to consider, so review the listing and message or call with questions. For 1 three, to too 9, three o nin too.
Not really camping...
The farm's cabin has been spiffed up for guests with a comfy double bed, a window seat and a small table for writing or just coffee. This one room cabin on short stilts sits slightly uphill from the farmstead. Fully screened, (bring your sleeping bag or comforter for brisk fall nights) it's a wonderful, quiet perch from which to hear, smell, watch and enjoy farm life.
Though you can recharge your laptop or phone, there's no internet connectivity, so your retreat won't be interrupted by squawks, or chirps, except from our rooster, and real, live crickets and tree frogs. The farmhouse is nearby (50 yards), but the cabin is wonderfully private. The cabin's own fire pit and charcoal grill are just outside the door.
Stroll the farm road, hike the maintained Nature Conservancy trail right next to the farm, or just chill in your hideaway.
It's cozy and rustic--it's a farm!--with a wonderful vibe. If field mice, a lowing cow in a nearby field, poison ivy, spiders, grass soaked in morning dew, dogs, a hooting owl or coyote's howl cause you consternation, this is decidedly not for you.
Bathroom is in the main farmhouse (Knock on the door. Don't mind the barking dog.) The cabin has no running water. (Natch, water's available in the house.)
Dine out at any of the numerous, great south county eateries: There's a great cafe four minutes away for cappuccino, muffins or a breakfast sannie and a dozen terrific restaurants within 20 minutes. ...Or... Bring your own gear (camp stove, pan and dishes) to prep and cook your meal at the fire pit--that's the 'rough' camping part! We can provide materials if you need: firewood, charcoal, organic pasture-raised meats, organic veggies, eggs, etc. as seasonally available (separate charges).
This retreat is perfect for couples and solo adventurers.
The cabin is a stand alone structure, separate from the farmhouse. Of course, guests are welcome to use the bathroom facilities in the farmhouse at any time. There's a fire pit area and mini 'lawn' adjacent to the cabin. Roam the farm road, and explore the farm, keeping in mind that it's a working farm.
We ask that guests respect our privacy in and around the house, and immediate environs--these areas are not for guests' use. On the farm, closed areas are off limits: pastures, animal enclosures, stalls, etc. If in doubt, please ask.

We like to give guests' their privacy to enjoy their 'vacation' in the countryside. While happy to answer questions and give direction, We're farmers--when we're busy, we're often really busy and it may seem like we're giving you the bums' rush. If we've got time, it's country time--that could mean a ten minute back story on the beaver down at the stream, or our rendition of a barred owl call.
