Authentic 18 foot Sioux Tipi, handmade and painted by Nomadics Tipi Makers of Oregon set on the edge of the trout stream [the Sawkill Creek] that runs through our estate, with a 75 acre wooded park on the other side of the river. It is but a half mile walk to the center of Woodstock Village. There is a fire pit in the center of the tipi and one outside.

The most recent photos on this website are from our first night in the tipi, May 18th, 2013. with two of our grandchildren and our Yorkies. We also have an interior photo of a Nomadics Tipi with the same liner design as ours.
On the estate there is an outside shower, a laundry room for your use. There is an outhouse for Tipi guests' use. We have a 'Tipi Room' with its own entrance next to the laundry set up exclusively for use by the Tipi guests. Nothing fancy, it has a desk, and chair, refrigerator, electric and wireless internet access.
Firewood, matches and kindling, plus basic cooking pots, pans, plates and utensils, plus salt, pepper, cooking oil, matches, soap, paper towels, bathroom tissue, dish detergent, trash bags,scrubbies, candles and a flashlight are provided. There is a 2 burner Coleman propane camping range in case you wish to cook or boil water without making a fire. Outside, there is a propane grill. There is an outdoor table and bench in front of a fireplace by the stream [see photos]. The mattress in the tipi is a double, plus there is a futon couch that folds down to make a 42' X 75' bed, if you have more than 2 people. The rate is based on your bringing your own sleeping bag(s). Towels and washcloths are provided. If you would like to have a housekeeper to provide sheets and quilts for the bed and/or futon for your stay, add $40. per stay. Please make specific arrangements with us if you wish to have this service.
Near the road are trash cans for your use. We expect guests to leave everything as clean and orderly as they find it.
You should bring sleeping bags unless you arrange for bedding by the housekeeper.
