Holmestead Woods

Brewster, New York

Seclusion and privacy close to NYC with numerous activities nearby (kayaking, swimming, bouldering, hiking, biking, etc). - If you want to camp this winter, send me a message and I can make the site available for you.

Wooded campsite accessible through sheep pasture, it's about 200 yards from the parking spot to the Tentrr site. We offer the Tentrr site two ways: 1. Bare minimum - All of the standard Tentrr stuff (two queen air mattresses, picnic table, camp stove, camp toilet, etc) including a full jug of potable water, a solar shower, and three tiki torches (but without oil). We also include toilet paper. You can scavenge some wood from the surrounding forest. However, it’s advised that you bring firewood. We do offer firewood as an extra. 2. Everything - Includes the bare minimum stuff plus freshly washed sheets, four pillows, pillow cases, and four blankets for the two queen air beds. Also includes everything you need for a fire: firewood, fire starting blocks, paper, cardboard, kindling, and lighters. Lastly, we fill up all of the tiki torches and leave extra tiki oil at the site so you can refill them as needed during your stay. To get this, just select the "Everything Package" in the extras. We only charge this fee once per stay so additional nights are at the lower "bare minimum" rate. Our site is very close to Southeast Station (Harlem Line) where Zipcars are available to rent, Putnam Trailway, I-84/I-684, merely an hour or so from the city! Lots to do nearby including: - Ice Pond Preserve Hiking and Bouldering (great bouldering location!) - Kayaking in the Great Swamp of Patterson NY - Hiking in numerous nearby parks like Fahnestock, Michael Ciaola, Ice Pond Conservation Area, etc. - Fishing and Fly Fishing in several area streams and lakes (NY fishing license required) - Mountain biking nearby including Ice Pond - Road biking around popular trailways (Putnam and North County Trailway) and nearby roads - Swimming in nearby White Pond As a warning, due to the proximity to Interstate 84, there is some background noise but it is minimal and can’t be heard normally over the wind or a crackling fire!
