Weekend rentals are available from September to June. During July and August, preference is given to week rentals - weekends will only be made available for booking starting in May. Long weekends are an exception and can be booked for a three day rental.
We offer a spacious five bedroom, three bathroom guest house with two on-property cabins, six rustic cabins in the woods, and wilderness camp sites.
We prefer to rent to mature, responsible adults and families who appreciate the beauty of nature, respect the antiques on our property and those of us who live here. Partying is encouraged as long as it's done without disturbing others. We do rent to large groups but may request a security deposit which would be returned if there is no damage to the house or property.

Guest house bunkies
Cabin #1 on Guest House Property
Inside View of Cabin #1 on Guest House Property
Inside view of Cabin #2 on Guest House Property
There are two cabins ("bunkies") on the guest house property. These cabins have full electrical power, a small refrigerator, and beds— bring your own bedding or sleeping bags. There is again no running water in these cabins but just outside the door there is
an outdoor tap. These cabins are unheated and uninsulated. They are intended as guest house "overflow" for large groups wanting to camp together— some rough it and some stay in the house. There is an electric BBQ for cooking if you don't want to start a fire. Bring your own camping gear (dishes/cooking utensils/towels). If you are a camper, these cabins are large, clean, and have comfy beds and you don't have to pitch the tent or pull the camper! Bring the whole family or a bunch of friends and enjoy a "private campground" experience.

Cabins to rent
All cabins cost $75/night, except the Beaver Lodge which can sleep 6 people and is $100/night.
All of our cabins are very rustic and meant for those who love nature and camping. All are insulated and come with the basic necessities - utensils, dishes, cutlery, kettle, pots, coffee pot or bodum, wood stove, outdoor fire pit, propane burner for cooking, and an outhouse. The Hunt Camp cabin has full electricity with a hot plate and small fridge; the straw bale and train station cabins have solar power for lighting and charging cell phones or plugging in a radio. The other cabins have no lighting so please bring your own battery-powered lights. None of the cabins have running water or electricity (they do have outhouses). Potable water is provided in 5-gallon containers. You need to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags but pillows are supplied. What these cabins offer is a private, secluded, beautiful site in nature for those who love to camp but would prefer to be in a building. The "lower bush cabin" and "beaver lodge cabin" overlook the Otter river and the "train station" and "straw bale cabin" overlook the valleys.

We now have a great two person shower complete with a light, mirror and electrical outlet if you want to spruce yourself up by shaving or using a hairdryer. It's in the back of our barn in an awesome rustic setting and offers a unique hot shower with an outdoor feel. All campers, whether in cabins or campsites, are welcome to use it

This is a unique cabin up in the trees overlooking the Otter River down below. It's a great couples retreat and for adults only. There's an amazing view sitting on the back deck up in the trees.

Special Occasion Barns
New to Otter River Farms, pre-1900's Barns for Special Occasions and are now available for weddings, family reunions, stags, etc. The perfect location for photos opportunities.
Two old beam barns built in the early 1800's. There are two barns to choose from. One has hydro available and the other is powered by solar panels for lighting and D.J setup.
It is important to see before booking an event.
Day use of either barn for reunion or wedding only is $300. To hold your reception in the barn the cost is $700. You can bring your own tables and chairs or we charge $100 for use of our tables, chairs, and tablecloths for 50 people. If you have more than 50 guests you're welcome to put up a tent at no extra cost.
You have to supply your own food, decorations, dishes and glassware, and music system. We're happy to provide a beautiful rustic setting for your wedding but you have to want to do the work yourself.
The upper barn behind the guesthouse can only be rented for a reception if the guesthouse is also booked for two nights by the wedding party. Cabins and bunkies are always an option for wedding guests to stay over.
