Our Mt Laurel Cabin is nestled up our mountain among the Mountain Laurel in the woods near the hilltop pond and Rustic Kitchen. It's a magical setting where you are surrounded by Mt. Laurel branches which line the walls and arch over your bed!

Please note that Sticks and Stones Farm is a drug and alcohol free property and we request that all of our guests respect and adhere to our policy. Thank you!

The space
NEW COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS:

In order to protect the wellness of both our guests and residents on the farm, we have implemented significant changes to our offerings.

1. All cabins have their own space for cooking. There are no communal facilities.
2. All cabins have access to a private toilet and shower facility
3. There is a two-day window on either side of our bookings to ensure a deep
cleaning of each space.
4. We have closed access to the main barn to eliminate communal contact with
residents and other guests.

We have done all we can to provide a secluded, safe space for a natural retreat away from this uncertain world. You will be immersed in a natural setting where everything is exactly as it has always been. Nature is thriving more than ever - a perfect place to escape for a weekend, a week or even an month!

ABOUT THE CABIN:
Our rustic Mountain Laurel Cabin is a favorite among guests. Voted Most Romantic, the cabin is nestled down in a glen providing plenty of privacy and all the green you can gather in! You will most certainly feel like you’re in a little love nest the way that the Mountain Laurel branches provide interesting structure along the inside walls of the cabin. This is a single screened in room with a double bed, wicker bench, table, battery powered string lights and drinking water. This cabin is the most magnificent in the morning when the first rays of sun stream in through the dense foliage. This cabin is located behind the rustic kitchen.

PLEASE NOTE
-The bathroom is not located in the cabin. Both the bathroom and showers are a few minute walk away on a path through the woods and are located separately.

-There is a communal fire pit located just above the cabin at the Rustic Kitchen.
- Once you book we ask that you keep us updated on your arrival time so that we can be sure to be ready and waiting for you! We ask that all guests arrive before dark.  
Guests arriving after 10pm will be required to pay an additional $25 late check in fee in cash upon arrival. We apologize but we must enforce this even if you are late due to circumstances out of you control.

It’s simple living at its best. We're just over one hour from NYC but local folks love us too. We are an easy, inexpensive "staycation" and many use us frequently as their guest "bedroom" when out of town family or friends come. We offer a unique setting for your summer get-a-way or family reunion.

There is an outdoor Rustic Kitchen on the top of the mountain ideally situated between the Pagoda cabin, Mtn. Laurel cabin and Summit cabin. The kitchen has cookware, plates, french press, utensils, a stove, grill, coolers with ice, olive oil, salt/pepper, drinking water and a sink with running water (not potable)! Lighting is limited and we always encourage people to bring their own additional lighting.

There are three large designated fire pits on the property. Some cabins also have their own fire pits which is noted in their individual descriptions. Fires are not allowed to be made in non-designated places! Please Note per Connecticut state law - firewood cannot be brought in from out of the state. 

Upon arrival we will provide you with a map and your own cooler with ice. We allow our guests to drive their belongings up to their cabin at check in and upon check out but cars must be parked below in designated parking areas. Please remember that during your stay you will be traveling on foot! Most of the cabins are a 10-25 minute walk through the woods, depending on your speed. The River Houseboat and Little House are at the base of the mountain next to the stone barn and parking area so very little walking is required.

We restock ice and other goods daily and thus try to make ourselves as available and accommodating to changing needs as possible - we have some individuals living on the property who can be available in case of emergency.

Important Things to Note:

-Verizon wireless is the only network to have service throughout the property. Nearly all other providers have service on the top of the mountain where the majority of our cabins are located. 
-Dogs are not allowed to stay in any of our cabins.
-Please be advised that we are not solely a Bed and Breakfast; while we aim to accommodate you as best as possible, there are sometimes other events going on that may affect your stay. We recommend you check our calendar of events prior to booking. Sometimes our guests enjoy participating!
- An outhouse that is cleaned weekly is located near the Rustic kitchen, Mtn. Laurel cabin, Summit cabin and Pagoda cabin and a two room state of the art composting toilet is shared between the Solar cabin and Log cabin - both a one minute walk away
- We have a wilderness camp that runs Monday - Friday from 9am - 3pm during the summer. Campers and staff respect the privacy of the cabins but you might see some groups of children building forts or playing games throughout the forest 
- Please be aware that depending on rain fall the property is at risk of drought in the late summer. This can sometimes cause the pond levels to drop making it less scenic for some.
- None of the cabins except the River House Boat and Little House have electricity - fans are provided in these cabins
- There is a Stop and Shop grocery store located 2.5 miles from the farm
- If you are arriving via metro north you want to get off at Bridgeport and from there you can get a driving service for the 30-minute ride to the farm (i.e. Uber, Lyft etc.).

Guest access
60 acres of woods, trails, river, ponds, unique structures, stone barn, commercial kitchen, , yoga room, 54' moss and stone Chartre Labyrinth and a zig zag moss path. Please be advised that while we have two ponds during times of drought the water level may be too low to allows for swimming.

Though there is lots to do in the surrounding towns of Newtown, Monroe, Easton and Fairfield but most guests prefer to kick back, stay put and enjoy the quiet energy of the farm setting.

The farm is a magical place and a perfect "getaway" from the craziness that life sometimes throws at us. The farm has a very impressive moss garden as well as a stone and moss Labyrinth. All of us at the farm love to live simply, sustainably and with presence. We love clean food, music, yoga and so many other good things :-) Locals make sure to check out our incredible Two Coyotes Wilderness School, a nature-based mentoring program with summer camps, home school and weekend programs!
