My husband and I spent three wonderful weeks at Bag End this summer. What a terrific place! The property is perched on top a hill, providing a tranquil setting from which to view Cazenovia Lake, the windmills and nature’s bounty.
The property was a perfect place to entertain. The exterior barbeque area, along with lots of outdoor seating, provided the perfect setting for our family gathering….not to mention the view! The owners of the property were gracious and accommodating. They took steps to ensure the beautiful landscaping and gardens were at its peak perfection, so that our guests could see the property in its prime.
Bag End was also a perfect place to enjoy quiet moments together. There are bookcases chock full of great reads, and the barn provides lots of quiet corners and lofts from which to enjoy them. There’s also lots of wildlife to observe, from the family of rabbits that greet you each time to wind your way up the gravel drive, to the groundhog that makes his daily, elusive visit and the frequent winged-visitors to the many birdfeeders around the property. Also, just out the back door are trails to enjoy on Preservation Land. We loved having the windows open to enjoy the sound of the lovely hilltop breezes and nature’s symphony.
All this was just minutes from the village of Cazenovia, so a hop into town for provisions or to enjoy village activities was very convenient.
We loved the place, as did all our friends and families who came to visit. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique, idyllic escape.
