We fell in love with this small, charming upstate hamlet 20 years ago. For a year, four of us looked for land outside New York City, wandering through all the counties looking for the elusive magic of a country home. We found those qualities in a tiny town of Cornwallville, in the Durham valley. We bought a house that is even more than we'd hoped.
When the house next door became free, we bought that too. Our rental house was a parsonage once. It's strong and practical, and we filled it with books and dishes and quickly made it a home. It's a perfect place for a weekend, a week, a summer.

Three of us own this house together: writer, filmmaker, gardner. We bought the house 28 years ago, on one of the most beautiful days any of us can remember.
We looked for a year at houses in New York State, in counties that were less than 3 hours from New York City. Our idea was that we wanted a place to escape, to retreat, to plant vegetables and flowers, to read and talk and walk and hike, and to invite as many people as we could to come and eat with us.
Oddly enough, New York State (many regions, not only ours) is astonishingly and unexpectedly beautiful. We have a porch, a light yellow porch, overlooking a long green field. That porch has been the inspiration for poem after poem (after poem).
