David A Cesar purchased this estate in 2009
I bought this beautiful homesite for a retreat destination for my children and grandchildren to enjoy for years to come. The swimming, hiking and farming is has been a great gift to us and hopefully something you too can share with your family.
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!
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!
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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!
