The small farmstead is nestled deep in the Catskills surrounded by winding country roads that take you past grazing cattle, rolling fields and century-old barns, a short two and half hours Northwest of New York City.
Rustic yet luxurious, the platform tents at Stony Creek Farmstead Farm Stay have welcomed families, lovebirds, reunions, and wedding guests alike. Canopied ceilings and canvas walls, with a wooden floor underfoot, keep you dry and cozy without shutting nature out. A fully equipped kitchen boasts a wood cook stove and essential utensils for cooking fresh farm fare. Whether you’ve come to pluck your meal from the garden or just sit back and watch the cows graze, there is space enough in your tent for you to lounge in a canvas swayback chair or to stand and prep veggies for the afternoon meal. Each tent includes a cabinet bed for concealed midday naps, as well as a set of bunk beds and a separate room with king size berth. A small water closet conceals a flush toilet.
A short stroll across a foot bridge brings you to the industrial open air shower house, with four stalls, two family size and two singles. You won’t find anywhere to plug your phone in – okay, there is electric in the farm store – the tents are intentionally off-grid to help you appreciate the finer things in life. Hike the hills for a breathtaking view of the valley, jump in the crystal clear pond, follow the creek into the woods. DIY books, homesteading magazines, board games and a basic art supplies can be found in the farm store for rainy afternoons or post-hike relaxing.
