Spend The Night In A Yurt On This Charming New York Goat Farm
Here In New York, you’ll find that a good majority of our residents love heading outdoors and even experiencing a fun, but safe, up-close animal encounter when we have the chance to. Some of us may choose to stretch our legs in the woods while we go for a
hike with some llamas, but if you’re looking for an even more peaceful adventure that involves hanging out with another one of your favorite four-legged friends – then look no further!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
West of Schenectady and just out past Mariaville Lake, you can visit a little-known goat farm for some one-of-a-kind outings.
The Mariaville Goat Farm is a lesser-known gem of the Empire State, home to a family of goats that are friendly and living a wonderful life here on the farm in Schenectady County.
The goat farm has become a popular spot for locals to make a stop at when they're in need of the best of the best soap, with the farm selling handcrafted goat milk soap.
It's not just the goat milk soap though that attracts visitors to this small-town farm, the goat farm also features yoga... with goats!
That's right, as you're unwinding in the wide open spaces of this charming farm, you can look over and see a friendly face just waiting to assist you.
One of the best yoga experiences that you'll ever have, the classes here are typically 75-minutes long and involve lots of opportunities to interact with the stars of the farm.
Before you run off, there's more! The Mariaville Goat Farm isn't just a day trip destination.
On the Mariaville Goat Farm, you can find a yurt that sleeps up to four people.
The cozy yurt has a bed, with extra cots depending on how many guests you'll have with you, and even has its own wood-fired stove and oven inside to help keep things warm.
Airbnb as the Mariaville Goat Farm Yurt, this glamping-like outing allows you to experience a true retreat.
Plus, who wouldn't want to hang around the campfire with all of these wonderful goats?
They're just too cute, and often waiting for you right outside the yurt's door.
If all of this sounds like your type of adventure, plan an overnight or RSVP to one of the Mariaville Goat Farm's yoga events ASAP.
