Stony Creek Farmstead Farm Stay is not just a rural retreat; it’s a unique experience. Nestled in the scenic and pastoral hillsides of a working Catskill Mountains farm, it’s a tranquil escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. Surrounded by meandering country roads, grazing cattle, rolling fields, and century-old barns, it’s a picturesque setting that’s hard to find elsewhere. And the best part? Despite its rural seclusion, it’s just a short two-and-a-half-hour drive northwest of New York City.

The accommodations at Stony Creek Farmstead Farm Stay strike a perfect balance between rustic charm and luxurious comfort. The platform tents, which host families, couples, reunions, and wedding guests, offer a delightful blend of nature and comfort. With their canopied ceilings and canvas walls, complemented by a sturdy wooden floor, the tents provide a cozy and dry environment without disconnecting guests from the surrounding natural beauty. Additionally, each tent features a fully equipped kitchen with a wood cook stove and essential utensils, allowing guests to prepare delicious farm-fresh meals. Whether one intends to harvest produce from the garden or observe the grazing cows, there is ample space within the tent to relax in a canvas swayback chair or to stand and prepare vegetables for the day’s meals. Furthermore, the tents have a cabinet bed for discreet midday naps, bunk beds, and a separate room with a king-size berth. A small water closet concealing a flush toilet is also provided to cater to guests’ convenience.

A brief stroll across a quaint footbridge leads to the industrial open-air shower house, featuring four family-sized stalls and two for individual use. The intentional lack of electrical outlets within the tents encourages guests to embrace a more unplugged experience, although electric facilities are available in the farm store. This intentional off-grid setup is designed to help guests appreciate the simpler pleasures in life. For those seeking outdoor adventure, the farm offers a variety of activities, including hiking the hills to enjoy breathtaking views of the valley, taking a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear pond, or exploring the woods along the creek. Additionally, a selection of DIY books, homesteading magazines, board games, and basic art supplies can be found in the farm store, providing entertainment for rainy afternoons or leisurely relaxation following a day of hiking.
