More than just camping! The tiny village of Karenville is enchanting. With it's Victorian buildings off grid you will find yourself captivated. There is "cafe" where you can cook your meals and a primitive shower and lots of space to call your own. Bring your camping gear and your smiles.
To see the many different options at Karenville scroll to bottom.
You may chose to pitch your tent anywhere in a very large field that goes on and on. Or yes, you can bring your camping trailer or whatever kind of camping equipment you like. You may then cook in the "cafe"or enjoy a hot shower in the unconventional outdoor shower. Or perhaps you would like to simply relax in the village and take in the country sights and sounds, of which there are many.
Be sure to check out my other sites (including my Huts $35-$38), to see more pictures and information. And the reviews are awesome! Just like Karenville!
Note; although airbnb may say this is a private room, this site is for camping. (Bring your tent and sleeping bag)
Please consider booking more than one night when possible. To further encourage multiple nights I have added a one time check in fee of $5 (Airbnb calls it a cleaning fee). What I hear most from my guests is "I wish I could stay longer in this amazing place.
You will have access to everything Karenville has to offer. You will also be very very close to the State Forest and hiking trails.
You will have all the privacy you want or need. However you are always welcome to join us (and sometimes other guests) at a campfire or perhaps sitting and eating or anything else we might be doing.
Ithaca is full of everything that Karenville doesn't have. Things like waterfalls, electric, wineries, running water, restaurants, sidewalks, malls, streetlights and more. Best of all Ithaca is an easy 15-20 minute drive.

Come visit Karenville expecting something different from the norm.
Check in is between 5-7:00pm unless previously arranged. I am happy to be flexible when I can, if I know when you will be arriving.
PLEASE READ the listing for the place you have booked. Also (VERY IMPORTANT) read and follow MY driving directions.
Dogs? - Because of our animals who are afraid of wild dog like creatures (foxes and coyotes) I no longer allow any dogs in Karenville.
Smoking? Yes I allow smoking, however no smoking in or around any of the buildings. Please do not throw cigaret butts on ground. Please dispose of properly.
Alcohol? Yes I allow alcohol in limited moderation. This is not a party place! Please be respectful and quiet. No late night laughter.
My hope is that everyone have a wonderful time at Karenville and leave smiling.
I am a fun and sometimes silly person. But most of all I have a strong connection to the wild things around me. My partner Robert is a plant and insect expert, and also enjoys the same. I especially like the simple things in life. Some of my favorite things to do is, hiking with our two goats, building or painting something, contra dancing, riding my vintage bicycle, showering under the rain spout, cooking over an open fire, having a great adventure, gardening and hanging around home doing the things we do. Things I do not enjoy are sports, shopping, fashion, and watching tv. But sure love my goats, oh yes and Robert too.
I built Karenville for my own enjoyment and pleasure. But then I wasn't sure what to do with all these silly buildings. Someone said I should put it on Airbnb. Without electric or running water I was quite sure no one would come. Wow! was I ever surprised. And now, suddenly, I'm paying County and State taxes.
My future hope for Karenville is that it may amuse and stimulate a new way of thinking and feeling for everyone who visits. And that all who visit K-ville leave with smiles on their faces.
Come experience the magic in Karenville !
