Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ellen,I can't even begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your farm. Even with the lousy weather, we had an incredible time. My granddaughters told us when we were loading the car Sun. afternoon that they didn't want to go home, they just wanted to bring mommy and daddy here. They're 3 and 5 and I was a little concerned how they would do, but that obviously wasn't a problem. We loved sitting on the porch watching the creek go by and watching the cows out the kitchen door during breakfast. We hope to come back in the near future if you'll have us.Marge

Pastoral

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the farm for a week with 2 doodle doggies. Although there was a strong sulfur smell in the hot water, the owner addressed it right after I called and it was resolved in under an hour.
Another review mentions the electric fence. We simply went under or over it and walked all over the pasture lands. We got some fun pictures of the cows as well. We can assure you they were there because they bellowed a few times during the nights. The mowed areas were really lovely as was the lengthy porch. We simply put a tablecloth and flowers on the outside table and dined like kings and queens each evening. Very fun!

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
I was unhappy to find upon our arrival that the water in the house smelled intensely like sulfur. Running a shower left the house smelling like rotting eggs for hours. I had also imagined that we would be able to walk/hike around many of the 100+ acres on the property, but everything except for 2-3 acres was blocked off by an electric fence. We were hoping to see cows/livestock wandering outside the barn as suggested by a prior posting (which I now realize is several years old), but nothing appeared to be living in the barn. In all, while the price is reasonable and its very nice that you can bring your dog, it was not country/farm ambiance I was hoping for.

Owner's Response: When this renter called me about the sulfur smell I called the water system person who went to the house on Monday, 2 days later, and repaired the system.

Also, they questioned the electric fence which is around the pasture which is there to keep the cows contained. This was explained in the farm information. I told them they were free to go anywhere on the 145 acres and if they touched the fence they might get a shock but nothing more. In summer the cows wonder the 100 acres and are not in the barns which are off limits to renters.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful farmhouse on rolling hills of farm land, and footsteps from a fishing creek, was a wonderful place to stay for the weekend. We wish it could have been longer. The listing is accurate, and the property was beautifully prepared for visitors. The kitchen is beautifully set up to cook - better than our own. The owner was professional, friendly and reliable. Our dog was particularly happy because he could be off a leash (with our keeping an eye on him) because there were no roads to have to watch out for. We had trouble getting him back in the car to go home. In addition to taking walks, sitting on the porch overlooking the creek and reading, and fishing, we went to Woodstock for an afternoon, and also had a great meal in Catskill, which is much closer. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this with 2 other couples for a fall getaway. We loved it! It was very clean. The guys fished in the lake & actually caught some. The girls went antique shopping in Saugerties & drove around to check out the foilage which was magnificent. We cooked an Octoberfest meal in the well stocked kitchen. We had our morning coffee on the great poch watching the cows & horses. We definitely plan on returning & would recommend it highly.

Quiet Farm - lovely porch

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a beautiful stay here. We were busy out during the days, and loved coming back here in the evenings to watch the fish jumping in the creek. For the early risers, morning coffee on the porch was also wonderful. The rooms are spacious; the quilts are lovely as well as comfy. Lots of different rooms/spaces for family members to do separate activities but also plenty of room to eat dinner or play Monopoly together.

We were sad to leave, and wished we'd had more time at the farmhouse itself.
