Winter Activities At Historic Pittston Farm
Winter Season is our most popular time here. Winter comes early to the North, but includes so many opportunities for fun and memories, that no one is complaining around here! Depending on the year, snow can fall here around the last of November and stay till the middle of April! This affords us some wonderful scenes for truly enjoying winter, more than just a few weeks. I am reminded of a Currier & Ives postcoard when I drive onto our grounds in the winter..... warm, comfortable and inviting would be the words I'd use to describe our facilities. Our winter activities include: Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing, Cross-Country Skiing, Sledding, Rabbit & Coyote hunting as well.
Lets start with Rabbit & coyote hunting. Coyote hunting is popular with sportsman and the use of hunting dogs are sometimes used for the hunt as well. Hunters use snowmobiles to go after the coyotes during this time of year. Rabbits also are hunted with snowmobiles as the travel mode as well. Rabbit hunting in this area is beginning to be popular and we expect it to grow as time goes on. Many rabbits are spotted throughout the year. If you have a hunting group wondering where to stay together, we invite you to use us your hunting base for either one of these types of hunts, please call us with any questions you may have. We can make the experience a whole lot better by providing you with all your food and lodging, as well as a comfortable place to relax and converse with others that enjoy the sport. Why not make us an annual group event for a fun time?
Snowmobiling, our Trademark: We are a snowmobile destination resort and when the snow begins to fall, everything around here gets turned up a notch! It is a wonderful season and our favorite.

This is remote wilderness like you've never experienced before, but because of our location as an outpost, this area makes for a comfortable place to get-away from the populated areas in the southern portion of our country. We are located about 20 miles from the canadian border and 20 miles in the other direction from the nearest populated area, but we have everything the recreationist wants and needs to have a safe enjoyable vacation. It is all here at Historic Pittston Farm, where you may come as a stranger......but leave as a friend!
