Description

Complete freedom to roam on 30 acres with a bonus that our land is surrounded by another 200+ acres of electric company owned land with no roads, no cars, no neighbors… just grass and forest. We have a Google Earth picture roughly showing the property lines and the driveway for you to use while exploring. We ask that you please stay out of the treeline to the right of the driveway as you drive up the hill It's the neighbor's property and it's marked by no trespassing signs. There is no house on the property. Just a camper and a shed. Park anywhere on the road or at the big circle at the top (near the farm office.) We have wifi near the brown shed at the top of the road. Wifi: HSH Password: HardStruggleHomestead Be forewarned that our land is on the side of a mountain so the walk up the driveway will be on a slow incline. Your dogs will be tired after this trip, we promise. As of April 1st there are no animals or livestock on site except for a colony of bees which are fenced in with an electric fence. The owner may be on site conducting maintenance on the property. If you prefer he not be on site please just send a message and we will accommodate.

    This was my first experience with sniffspot and my dogs had a blast. They didn’t want to leave once our time was up!

  • Megan M., Feb 21, 2024

    Returning customer! Love bringing my dogs here

  • Megan W., Feb 11, 2024

    Our dogs loved exploring the property! There is plenty to explore and you could easily spend hours here. Our dogs were definitely tired going home even after only one hour. Thank you!

  • Lorena H., Feb 4, 2024

    Perfect place to hike.

  • Kellyn M., Feb 4, 2024

    This place is our new favorite! It really puts the sniff in Sniffspot. My pup prefers hikes and off trail adventures over fetch, and she loved this spot and did not want to leave. We look forward to visiting again soon! Thank you so much for hosting and for the great directions to find your place!

    Brought the whole family. Dog and kid loved climbing and exploring even in the rain.

  • M S., Jan 27, 2024

    Such an amazing private spot! Lots of cool things to look at and very good trails to hike!

  • Tracy W., Jan 24, 2024

    What a great Sniffspot! A friend and I took our dogs for a few hours, and we, and they, had the most wonderful time. We parked up by the camper trailer, hiked the mountain a little, then walked back down the entrance road a few hundred meters. On either side were wide, mowed meadows - perfect for running off-leash. We didn't see any wildlife, but we did come across a nice stream the dogs enjoyed. Will definitely go back!

  • Cambria V., Jan 23, 2024

    Wonderful spot! Exactly what I wanted - lots of space to roam and nothing else around. My little girl had a blast running through the snow practicing recalls and staying near me. Definitely will be back.

  • Michelle S., Jan 21, 2024

    Another great visit! He was full speed the entire time. And there must have been something good hiding in the snow.
