Fire Watch Meadow

Bovina, NY
$100/night - Continue to Booking

The Catskills are some of the oldest mountains in the world [350 million y/o] & only mountains over 3000' are named (like ours). You could even hike up & find the brass spike placed during the depression when the CCC surveyed all mountains.

Our chunk of Roundtop is this 50 ac. meadow with stunning views to the east & west. Sunrise (at some points in the year) & sunset. Complete seclusion, no made man objects in your view shed, yet you can be in the destination village of Bovina in 8 minutes or the "metropolis" of Delhi or Margaretville in 20. Our historic 1790's Stagecoach Inn [Farmcreek] a 150ac former dairy farm, sits just below you-in case you need anything. And you're encircled by the 1800 ac Plattekill State Forest. Our farm sits in the Thompson Hollow Valley and unusual 4 mile loop valley-great hike.

Stunning multiple mountain views -a generously supplied Glamping site as rustic or comfortable as you wish. Also please let us know what type of car you will be driving!
