Tent camping the Farm is a luxury camping experience. Eleven magnificent tent sites are elevated on platforms and situated in private spots in the forest and creekside. You'll need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow. Standard tents are Eureka tents, measuring 12' x 12' and 7' in height, with comfy Swedish cots enough to fit one person and two dogs. The large tents are spacious Cabelas tents, 14' x 16' and 7' in height, with a super comfy full-size futon. Large tents fit two people and two dogs easily. You should bring a crate for your dog in the event you have to leave your dog alone in the tent. Please note that you are responsible for leaving the lodging in the same condition as when you arrived.
All tents have handy interior pockets for storage and ceiling loops to hang items and numerous zippered windows for good airflow. Every little comfort is added to make this camping experience easy. We provide a storage shelf for organization, small dustpan and broom to help you keep things tidy, and an outdoor clothesline and clothespins to hang wet items. Fresh water is delivered each day right to your door for you and your dog. Restroom facilities with flushing toilets and outdoor vanities are located near the campsites to make it easy to handle personal matters in the great outdoors. And our full shower and toilet facilities are only moments away.

Most campers say this is the cushiest camping they've ever done and non-campers find it surprisingly comfortable and convenient.
We have 2 small cabins nestled high up on the Ridge, secluded amidst tall pine trees with a scenic vista below. The cabins are rustic but provide the essentials: furnished with a pair of twin-sized beds with spring mattresses, storage shelves, lamps, rugs and chairs. Cabins have heat and electricity (new for 2012!). Coffee-maker and mini-refrigerators are provided for convenience. Each cabin measures about 12' x 15' and provides room enough for two people plus their dog or one person with one or more dogs.
Because the cabins are located higher up on a ridge, you should feel physically comfortable heading up an incline on the established path to the cabins. If you are not up for walking uphill, have a look at the large cottages which sit below the ridge. On the ridge, the quiet and fresh air will make sleeping a joy for you and your dog. Some guests have described the views as those you would see in a treehouse! Guests will need to bring their own pillows, bed linens or sleeping bags and blankets. You will need a flashlight or lantern to make your way to/from your cabin at night. See Camper Info for what to bring.
Situated below the ridge, are 2 spacious large cottages. The cottages are rustic but provide you with the basics: each roomy cottage has a dresser, shelving, lamps, rugs, chairs, tables. One cottage has a queen and a twin bed, another has a pair of twin beds. Cottages have heat and electricity (new for 2012!). Coffee-maker and mini-refrigerators are provided (also new for 2012!) in each cottage for convenience. The cottages measure about 16' x 20' and provide plenty room for 2 or 3 people with their dogs (an additional per night charge for a 3rd person would apply). They are perfect for friends vacationing together or for a couple who want lots of space to unwind. The setting gives you quick access to nearby trails. Guests will need to bring their own pillows, bed linens or sleeping bags and blankets. You will need a flashlight or lantern to make your way to/from your cottage at night. See Camper Info for what you'll need to pack.
The cabins and cottages do not house their own bathroom. Shower and toilet facilities (see below) are located just 100 feet away. Cabins and cottages are equipped with heating and electricity. At night you will need a flashlight or lantern to make your way to/from your cabin or cottage. Fresh water is brought to your quarters for you and your dog. See Camper Info for what to bring. Please note that you are responsible for leaving the lodging in the same condition as when you arrived.

The Farm RVs are a real home away from home and wonderfully situated at the foot of a 30-acre meadow. With 2 classic RVs, 1 prime RV or 3 deluxe RVs to choose from, visitors opt for RVs for full-amenities, including heating/air conditioning. In efforts to conserve energy, we do kindly asked guests to turn off heat/air when not in the RVs.
Our classic and prime RVs have the feel of gently lived-in spaces (they are after all dog-friendly!). All have a separate bedroom with a queen bed. All RV beds now sport memory foam bedding for the best support in any sleeping position - you'll wake up refreshed! RVs also have the convenience of a private but small bathroom, storage cabinets, a kitchen equipped with stove, refrigerator and freezer, microwave, toaster, hot water pot and coffee-maker. Kitchens are stocked with basic cookware, glasses, mugs, dishware and utensils. Living areas have a dog friendly sofa with throw blankets and pillows and also VCR/DVD and stereo. One of the Prime RVs has its own private outdoor deck. While RVs have their own small bathroom with toilet, sink and shower, many RV guests prefer to use our separate full size bathroom and shower facilities (see Facilities below) just behind RV row.
You will need to bring your own bed linens, pillows and blankets. See Camper Info for what to bring. We provide camp chairs for outside lounging under the retractable awnings.
Got your own RV? Load up the dogs and come on over! We have RV hookup sites for you to rent.
Deluxe RVs! In addition to the standard amenities described above, the deluxe RVs have a single push-out, creating a good sized living space with a very comfortable home-like interior. In perfect condition, the queen-sized bed, a pull out bed, large kitchen design and large bathroom make for RV luxury in the countryside.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in our Barn, a remarkable 100 year old restored wooden barn with stunning high ceilings, natural wood throughout and space for up to 100 people! An architectural wonder, there is a separate eating area and serving area as well as our teaching area, complete with comfy couches for relaxing. Canine companions are welcome to join us during meals-- many are surprised and happy to see the Camp dogs co-habiting the barn peacefully as their owners enjoy their meals. Campers may also enjoy their meals outdoors at picnic tables with umbrellas, benches, Adirondack chairs and other seating spread throughout the main activity area.
Delicious catered food will include humanely raised poultry and beef and vegetarian dishes. Other special dietary needs can be accommodated. At GHF, we honor dogs as well as all animals by offering food choices that do not encourage factory farming or cruel processing methods. Snacks and refreshing beverages are available throughout the day. If you're interested in a meal away from the camp, there are restaurants moments away in Morris or Oneonta and we'd be happy to suggest where to go.
On the first evening before dinner, we host a happy hour complete with delectable snacks and appetizers that give Campers a chance to meet and mingle and unwind. On the last evening, a favorite event of many returning Campers, we have happy hour on a very special area of the Farm property. The sunset and views are just amazing, providing a memorable last night of Camp.
Bathrooms & Showers
The other shower and toilet facility is located behind the main barn. There are 2 additional tiled shower rooms with their own private entrances and space to change. The 2 toilets rooms have their own doors. The 2 vanity rooms, with sink, mirror and electrical outlets also have their own entrances.
Another shower and toilet facility is located near the tentsites.
Here you can take a break from the activities and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Keep an eye out for the signs that direct you to favorite locations around the Farm. In fact, these are special places that were picked by our very own Farm dogs! Water coolers with drinking cups are conveniently located and provide fresh water for you and your dog so you are refreshed and ready to venture around the next bend.
