Blind Buck Valley Farmstead offers a unique farm stay for visitors searching for some glamping experience. For more than 30 years, the farmstead has welcomed families and friends to the countryside for a quiet, relaxing, and recharging stay.
Located in the hills of Battenkill Valley of Salem, New York, the farmstead is a 200-acre working farm and accommodation operated by three sisters, Sarah Parker, Nicole Ives, and Cindy D’Andrea, according to a report.
They welcome weeklong stays, bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations, weddings, and other events. The farmstead offers a simplistic and peaceful rural atmosphere for its guests, combining it with the luxurious amenities from the family’s newly-added glampground.
The farm has a spacious, bright five-bedroom Farmhouse designed with cozy antique and vintage decorations. For $500 a night, visitors can book the entire glampground, including four tents that accommodate up to 16 people. It also has a dining and kitchen area fitted with cookware, grilling accessories, and dishware.
The visitors will also have a pantry with essential cooking staples, such as seasoning, coffee, and sugar. The farmstead will also provide a refrigerated food storage and complimentary dozen eggs fresh from its chicken coop.
The site also includes a shower and bath area with eco-friendly toiletries, picnic tables, a fire pit, complimentary firewood, a gas grill with propane, family friendly games like cornhole, and hammocks and Adirondack chairs for guests to relax and lazy the day away.
During a day’s stay, guests can take in the beautiful and serene sights and sounds of nature and farm life. They can also mingle with goats, pigs, chickens, donkeys, and horses on a farm tour, while gathering eggs, picking veggies, taking a wagon ride, or walking around the pine grove.
The farmstead is also surrounded with attractions that guests can visit and have a good time like the famous Battenkill Creamery, Salem Artworks, and Fort Salem Theater that recently reopened and celebrating its 50th season with shows like Grease this summer.
They can also get a cool down under the summer heat with kayaking, tubing, swimming, and fishing. Saratoga, Lake George, and southern Vermont also offers day tours, which are only less than a 35-minute drive away.
The three sisters’ parents originally purchased the historic circa-1795 farmhouse, three beautifully-designed red barns, and its 4.6-acre land as a retreat from New York City in 1985.
In 1993, the family bid on a nearby dairy farm after realizing it’s no longer sustainable, incorporating the 180-acre land into their property and preserving the historic legacy and serenity of the entire valley around the farmstead.
