Your private 50-acre meadow at the entrance to the Plattekill State Forest. 1700 acres around you and our 150 acre farm below. An amazing location.

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] and 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-acre meadow with stunning views to the east and west showing sunrise (at some points in the year) and sunset. You will be in complete seclusion, with no made man objects in your view, 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 150-acre former dairy farm, sits just below you in case you need anything. And you're encircled by the 1800-acre Plattekill State Forest. Our farm sits in the Thompson Hollow Valley and unusual 4-mile loop valley-great hike.

Enjoy the Stunning multiple mountain views in this generously supplied glamping site, as rustic or comfortable as you wish. Also, please let us know what type of car you will be driving!

And we have since we were in our 20's. New Kingston & Bovina Valleys are sacred-special places.
We've come here weekends for over 25 years - we hike, kayak, birdwatch, geo-cache - and are into Catskill geology and native plants. Ask us anything - seriously - when you get here you will wonder how it exists 3 hours outside one of the largest cities in the world with pristine water, creeks, streams rivers and view. Look forward to having you! Frank & Terry
