Read this review from our first guest-

'Sittin' in your wonderful barn,

or listening to you spin a yarn,

It was fate that we found your happy place:)

To 'checkout' momentarily from the rat race.

We were so grateful to stay & rest our bones,

We will be back for fall foliage &

more of those divine scones!'

A Creative Labour of Love - Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5
Every few years or so, I take an extra long break from life as an expat in australia and head off on an unplanned trip letting the universe be the tour guide. In august 2013, my best buddy Naomi and I started out on a road trip from New York to Maine. Our first stop was the Zen Farmhouse in the Catskills for two nights just before heading to Kripalu. Our stay completely exceeded our expectations. Beautiful red barns, an organic garden, rolling acres of green pastures, hummingbirds at the windows, and a comfortable bed with clean white sheets. It is the place to unplug and get back to basics. Amazingly, there are ashrams and monasteries to explore and a kundalini yoga studio just down the road. There is a grounding yet rejuvenating quality to the place that will give a simple walk a thrill to be part of the landscape. Diane is the gracious hostess. She has an artist's heart and a soulful spirit and it comes across in her friendship and generosity. The Zen Farmhouse is her creative labour of love. It is thoughtfully simple yet comfortable bringing you back to what you need and a reminder of the true joy of living simply. It is a refuge from the sensory overload of city life and is a home away from home. We loved the space and connecting with the larger than life guests who shared a real sense of community. We highly recommend staying at the Zen Farmhouse, we definitely plan to return someday.

An all season paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Zen Farmhouse will not disappoint you. Diana is a wonderful host and her place is a delight. We stayed six nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. With Diana's help we planned our daily excursions with a focus on yoga and hiking. The Zen Farmhouse is very comfortable and the property is tranquil and relaxing. Diana is an experienced host and makes you feel right at home and very welcomed. We enjoyed making our meals at the Farmhouse and never felt like we needed to be elsewhere. Would love to return to the area and to Zen Farmhouse.

Lots to do in nearby towns and great tranquility.

  • 5 of 5
Diana was very kind, communicative, and welcoming. My girlfriend and I stayed at her farmhouse while passing through upstate New York and found security in her well-kept guest room. The guest room we stayed in had a private bathroom, hot water, and a nice and clean full/queen bed. All towels/linens were fresh and the room was expertly clean.
I'd highly recommend staying here if you are interested in seeing this part of New York, lots to do in nearby towns and great tranquility.

The second I stepped foot in this house I felt right at home. Diana is a perfect host and a truly wonderful person to connect with as well. The kitchen is well-appointed and the cozy living room with fireplace is the perfect space to relax as the seasons change and it gets chilly out. Everything was clean and neat. My bedroom got great light.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
A great place to stay! I loved staying in a converted barn, with the heavy wood beams and the old time feel. The hosts were very friendly and made sure all my needs were met. There was always hot cider heating on the wood stove and the place was more than cozy. The bed was unbelievably comfortable. Great nights sleep. Would like to stay in the summer as well and explore the area. Thank you so much!!!
