The Bellfire Tipi is located in the Meeker Hollow - one of the best places for stargazing in NY State, on our 10 acre property bordering state land and miles of forest. We designed the Tipi and chose the location very carefully with privacy and tranquility in mind. The Tipi is located 500 ft from the farm house, nestled between a seasonally running creek, maple trees and wild flower field. June & July are full blown lightning bug season - don't miss it!
In case of rain - the smoke flaps can be handled and closed over the top of the tipi to ensure that no rain gets in. You will get a short tutorial upon arrival.
Camping Shower - there is a camping shower behind the tipi
The Outhouse - features a wash station and a composting toilet.
There is no electricity at the Tipi - for ambience, candles and camping lanterns are provided. There is a solar phone charger as well.
The Bellfire Tipi is an 18ft dream and perfect place for a comfortable and unique getaway. Custom made furniture, wool carpets, cedar floors and handmade decor pieces have been carefully curated to create a space that is meditative, relaxing and practical. There is undeniable magic in sitting around a bonfire inside a Tipi and listening to the stream and each other and waking up to the sounds of the wind and birds singing.
There's no doubt that the Sioux Indian created an incredible structure that served as their home year round. We were inspired by their creativity and innovation and took it up a notch to create a space that serves the modern needs as well.
