Unique farmhouse in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

I booked this historic farmhouse as a birthday destination for me and my family. The home is set in a beautiful rural setting with a pretty pond and a barn and a silo as well as other farm outbuildings. Our family loved the historic charm of this home as well as the quietness of the area. We spent many hours wandering the property and sitting around the outside fire (as it was a warm weekend). The farmhouse had such historic charm and we wondered about the history of the families that settled there. We definitely would like to return to Darwin's home. He was quick to respond when I had any questions and I definitely recommend this to anyone who has interest in historic homes and who are looking to entertain and have a family get together. The house is spacious and the kitchen is beautiful. Stores are not far away and although we are avid hikers we found ourselves staying put there to just relax by the pond or take it easy on the property.

Incredible place for quiet weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Darwin has an incredible farm house and is extremely helpful and accommodating. My boyfriend and I were able to have the entire place to ourselves and have a quiet weekend away. Everything was cozy, comfortable and clean. I couldn't recommend such an amazing place any more. It's perfect for a long walk in nature, relaxing next to the fire and breathing in fresh air. It's close to NYC and is perfect for anyone looking to take a break from the busy city. I will absolutely return.

While looking at the pictures, I knew it was going to be a lovely weekend in the Catskills but little did I know how magical the whole experience would be. The home is so well kept in it's original fabrication, it's like stepping back in time (with heat and running water). As someone who loves history, this was absolutely amazing and watching my 6'5'' husband walk through the original doorways was well worth the drive from Brooklyn. The original floorboards, the fireplace, the kitchen - it was all so great and Darwin was extremely helpful. I highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

We keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house and the surrounding area! My extended family and I come back every summer. The historic home is rustic but very charming and accomodates us all. I'm a writer who's worked on several book projects during my time there - the grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The owner is great about communicating and the area has a fantastic vibe -- rural but with plenty of amenities and activities.

Our favorite summer retreat

  • 5 of 5

My extended family has been renting this house for our end of summer getaway for several years now, and we'll be back for as long as Darwin will have us! The space is well-suited for a large family and sometime guests, well-appointed, and replete with historic details (but cozy and charming)! The grounds are gorgeous and the area has a great rural vibe but with plenty of activities and amenities. We love it!

Wonderfully rustic!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a weekend in March. It's an old house farmhouse but thats why we picked it and found the some of the quirky things that go along with it (creaky floor boards/tricky staircases) a novelty. We spent most of our time in the kitchen and living room where there's an open floor plan perfect for socializing. Because of the cold we couldnt take much advantage of the outdoors however, it was all at our fingertips. The house had everything we needed - towels/sheets/kitchenware. Darwin was responsive and detailed in communications/instructions. Thanks Darwin!
