Beautiful 1800’s Renovated Farmhouse with WIFI/DishTV and Cell Phone Coverage

This beautiful farmhouse was hit by Hurricane Irene in 2011 and has been fully renovated. The walls and ceilings were removed and new sheetrock, windows, electricity and plumbing have been added. The original hardwood floors have been restored to their natural beauty.

The house is located on an 85-acre farm in the beautiful Schoharie Valley. The owner of the property lives in the back portion of the house. There are no connecting doors between the two apartments.

The view from your front porch is stunning, overlooking local farms and mountains in the distance. You will be surrounded by cornfields on all sides of the property in the summer. You will hear the lovely sound of the braying of the farm's donkeys, Jack and Jill. They are adorable donkeys that love to run and play. During the April snowstorm of 2016, another donkey was born. His name is Donkee. Just added for 2018, two little goats named Chip and Dale. They are growing quickly and leaving the small trees without leaves. Frosty, a 16 year old samoyed dog is always sleeping in the back of the house. Peeves, the cat, will be hunting the fields for mice.

If you enjoy nature, you can take a walk up the mountain behind the house where you might come across a deer or some wild turkeys. The view of the valley from the top of the mountain is incredible. You can also take a short walk up Vroman’s Nose in Middleburgh or take a hike along the mountain ridge in town. During the winter snowy months, the home is located on the snowmobile trail.

Your rental is an expansive 1,800 square feet with a full kitchen including beautiful cherry cabinets and stainless steel appliances. There is a large open concept living room, full bath and laundry room on the first floor. The second floor has three bedrooms, The Captains Quarters and The Victorian Room each have a full bed and The Bunkhouse Room has four twin beds. There is also a ¾ bath upstairs.

The house is fully furnished including a flat screen TV. High speed internet and Dish TV are amenities included in your rental. You should be able to get cell service in the valley.

Guests will be responsible for the care and maintenance of the rental during their stay. There will be no maid service available. You must bring your own food and personal items.

We are only 10 minutes from Interstate 88. The farmhouse is 1.7 miles from the village of Middleburgh and 3.5 miles from the village of Schoharie.


Howe Caverns is only twelve miles away where you enjoy an underground boat ride, or have fun in their new High Adventure Park.

Cooperstown, less than an hour drive from the farmhouse, has many sites to visit including the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Albany, our state capital, is a 45 minute drive away.

Maple Ridge Ski area is a half hour drive where you can enjoy skiing and tubing.

Saratoga Casino, Raceway, and Performing Arts Center are a little more than an hour drive.

Downtown Middleburgh is a quaint place for a leisurely stroll and a visit to our nice restaurants and local shops. We finally have a grocery store!!!

There will be a minimum age limit for renters, children are welcome, and pets will be considered.

The Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable. Centrally located and a pleasure to come back home to after exploring the sights of this beautiful countryside. We had a family celebration there and felt right 'at home' (probably because we were home).

Martha was a gracious hostess and the accommodations were very comfortable and relaxing.

Looking out of the kitchen windows over the expansive planted flat to the far mountain on the other side of the valley was like being in 'Gone With The Wind'.. very picturesque. I highly recommend this property. Hope to go back again! Thanks Martha

The house is just right for comfort, yet the animals and corn fields are a real farm!

Amazing Country Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful farmhouse with donkeys, goats, chickens and kitties. Perfect for my 12 year granddaughter. We stayed for 5 days to attend my father's 90th birthday party in nearby Cobleskill. Martha was very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend if you want a nice, quiet stay in the beautiful Schoharie Valley.

Relaxing country retreat

  • 5 of 5

Martha's Farmhouse was so inviting and relaxing. Being greeted with farm fresh eggs and beautiful country surroundings was just the beginning. Sipping coffee on the front porch in the rockers while enjoying all the sights and sounds was absolutely amazing. The Farmhouse provided us with more than ample space to share with family and friends in a private and comfortable setting. Meeting and interacting with all the creatures was such a gift. Can't wait to return!
