Guestbook comments from the owner

David,







Thanks for sending the deposit back so quickly. We did receive it yesterday.







Thanks for letting us stay at your home. It was so absolutely perfect for our family—plenty of space for all of us to sleep and gather together for games, etc. The guest house was perfect for our family with little children who go to bed much earlier than our teenagers and who also get up much earlier than all of the rest of us. The pond was great and it was especially wonderful to have all the toys, etc to use. We also enjoyed the canoe, the fire circle, the ATV and the beauty of the land. We just wished we had more days to just spend at the house, enjoying the quiet and beauty.







Thanks also for being so easy to work with. You answered all of our questions quickly and provided much needed information about the area.







We would love to come back some time and will surely refer you to any who might be vacationing in that area.







Thanks for helping make our family vacation so enjoyable!

Perfect for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at "The Farm" outside of Dansville, NY. The house and grounds are in excellent shape and provide ample space for our extended family. The house is very comfortable. It is evident that the owner, Mr. Ceasar put a lot of thought into the remodeling he did on this property to make it very accomodating for large groups. Our group had young children who enjoyed playing on the swing set and using all the toys in the garage. The adults had a great time driving the six passenger ATV on the trials on the property. Stony Brook State Park is close by and is wonderful for hiking, swimming, and picnicing. If you visit in the summer there are farm markets to buy fresh product. Check out the ice cream stand on the south end of Dansville!

Owner's Response: Thank You Jim for your kind remarks,
I make it a priority to maintain the property for my guests and I am currently working on replacing the kitchen cabinets, installing granite countertops with a new and larger capacity refrigerator. I try and keep the house up to date but at the same time keep the traditional antique vintage look that comes from that bygone era of the past. Kinda 19th century but with all the modern convenience's one expects for a comfortable vacation.
I hope you and your family return again someday !

great place for the family to gather

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a place for our family of 8 adults and 9 young children (under 10 years) to get together and just enjoy each other. What a blessing to come to David's place! We had plenty of room for all - even enough to have a few extra guests for a few nights. There was plenty of living room and we lived outside almost the whole week. There are toys galore for kids of all ages and lots of room for hiking. The pond was our favorite spot - clean fresh water, fun boats, nice sandy area. We do recommend renting the ATV, just to make it easier for the young ones to get back and forth. There is a lot to do in the area, or just stay together and "bond". Nice Wegmans in Hornell only 15 minutes away. Everything in the house was clean, and well organized. Yes, we hope to come again!!

What a special property!

  • 4 of 5
This house accomodates large groups, and has plenty of space for kids to play. We enjoyed morning coffee on the front porch..afternoon dips in the private pond...amazing visits to nearby parks...and we all slept comfortably in the quietness of the country....with plenty of bedrooms. It was a wonderful stay. We look forward to going back.

80th Birthday Party

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property to hold a family gathering to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We had family come from Maryland, Florida, Idaho, PA & NY. It was an easy commute from the Buffalo airport. Upon arrival, we felt right at home. We loved the quiet, country location. Loved hearing the peepers in the evening.The estate was as pictured, clean & comfortable. We cooked outside each night, played games in the garage & walked the grounds. It is so spacious & no one felt crowded. We rented the entire place so it worked quite well having 2 kitchens available for meals. David was great to work with. I would rent again in a heart beat!

Large family holidays accommodated easily!

  • 3 of 5
Was a great spot and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Especially since we had snow on Christmas day! Not something that can always be guaranteed! House was comfortable and accommodates large family groups easily. We were a family of 17 travelling from NZ!! We had an amazing white christmas - snow, snow fights, snow men, sledding...was awesome! thanks!!
I was slightly disappointed with the cleanliness - fridge, stove, sink, dishwasher all needed a clean. The electronics in the house are a little dated - but spent a lot of time outside.

Owner's Response: My contract specifically states that any issues regarding the cleanliness of our home upon entering be reported to me immediately. By doing so my housekeeper who lives nearby could have attended to these issues. Notice was not served, so the problem could not be addressed. The "slight" issues that were mentioned in this review apparently were not important enough to give me notice but were mentioned here in this review. This puzzles me.
My guest forgets to mention that I supplied them with a Christmas tree stand, Christmas ornaments and 6 sleds along with a heated garage so that the children were able to enjoy the foosball and the ping pong table in comfort.
We take pride in the proper maintenance and cleanliness of our Home and I am certain that you will find it that way during your stay.

Great spot for reunion of college friends with young kids

  • 4 of 5
This property was comfortable, clean, and spacious. David was very accommodating and easy to work with. We had a large group (8 kids, 8 adults), and there was plenty of space (and beds) for everyone. We skied at Swain, which was less than 10 minutes away and very family-friendly. The kids went sledding behind the house on sleds supplied by David. I would definitely rent here again!

Notes:
Hunting is not allowed on premises. The 1,500 acre Slader Creek state forest across the street is ideal for hunting. The spring fed 3/4 acre pond on the hill is perfect for swimming. We treat the water with barley straw which acts as hydrogen peroxide and keeps the algae to a minimum. The pond has a shallow end for kids with an 18 ft deep end for snorkeling. There is a nice size sandy beach with a dock and seating for 8 people. We have plenty of sand toys for the kids to use on the beach. Bring your own beach towels! 6 passenger Polaris Ranger Crew ATV is available to rent for $300 a week. A great vehicle to get around the property. No other ATV's allowed on property! We have lots of board games & outdoor games including horse shoes and an outdoor camp fire spot. 5 child swing-set just installed. This property is secluded from large farms, thus no worries about breathing animal odors. Come and enjoy the fresh air in the hills! Highspeed Internet access installed last year.
