Weather

Summer is upstate New York can be delightful with days averaging 80 degrees and often accompanied by breezes. Evenings are cool and comfortable averaging 60 degrees.

Please be aware that in recent summer seasons, with this summer season in particular, strong thunderstorms frequently pass through the area. If you know your dog(s) are sensitive to thunder you should come prepared with the items you usually need to calm your dogs to help them through the storms. Some suggestions would be melatonin (available in any health food store), ThunderShirts, and crates with covers.

In the Fall temperatures are a delightful 65 during the day and great sleeping weather usually at 50 degrees. The leaves are gorgeous changing in upstate NY, a very dramatic time of year.

Emergencies

Morris, NY is in a rural area so we are a bit remote from hospitals and vets... at least a half hour drive... so please let us know if you have any medical conditions or if your dog has a medical condition which we should know about.

Check-in and Check-out Times

Check-ins are from 2-3pm. We understand that you might encounter traffic problems or get lost, so please give us a courtesy call if you are running late. We pride ourselves on providing individualized attention to our campers, therefore we prefer all campers to check in on time so that one of the founders of Glen Highland Farm may give you a tour of the facility and get you settled in by 6pm. We cannot accept arrivals after 5 pm. If you are late and do not let us know, there will not be anyone to assist you upon your arrival and you will have to use other local accommodations and check-in the following morning.

We welcome you to make yourself at home, but please be sure to take care of our home! You will be held responsible for any damages to your lodging or GHF property by you, your guest(s) or your dog(s) incurred during your stay.

Check-out is 11am. We ask that you vacate from your accommodations by 11am so that we may prepare for our next guests. Feel free to enjoy the rest of the property and even prepare a lunch in the pavilion before your departure (by1pm at the latest).
