Our Property is a beautiful 1859 Farm House renovated to provide modern amenities while maintaining it's original character. The property is located 15 miles north of Cooperstown in the historic Village of Van Hornesville. The property is 8 minutes away from the Glimmerglass Opera House. The address is:
1 H Moyer Road, Jordanville, NY, 13361
The property includes a Master Bedroom with a King Size Bed; a second Bedroom with a Queen Size Bed; and a Bunk Room. The Bunk Room is suitable for children old enough to sleep in bunk beds. All bedrooms are located on the Upstairs Level of the House as is the Main Bathroom. All bedrooms share the Upstairs Bathroom. There is also a half-bath located on the main level of the home. The Main Bathroom includes a Toilet, Vanity/Sink, Shower and Jacuzzi Tub.
As is common with older Farm Houses, the stairs to the Upstairs are quite steep. This property is suitable for mobile adults; but not for anyone with mobility issues. Nor is it suitable for toddlers. The house has not been 'baby-proofed'.
The main floor of this property includes a fully equipped kitchen; a breakfast nook; a comfortably furnished living room; a large dining room with space for 16 guests; and a den/office. In addition, there are two covered porches and an upstairs balcony (with a SPECTACULAR VIEW).
Have you ever driven by a historic country farm house and wondered what it would be like to live there? Well this is your chance to experience
rural farm life in this nicely appointed house with updated kitchen, master bedroom and jacuzzi tub. Situated on a bucolic hilltop, you will rest and relax with the sounds of cows on the surrounding patchwork of rolling hills.. We would recommend this stay for anyone desiring to relax in the quiet of your own farm...that is well supplied for families or couples to play board games, badminton or a little baseball within arms reach of Cooperstown. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay and it brought us back to a kinder simpler time, with friendly farm neighbors yet not having to do any chores. "Good night John Boy".
Had a great stay
Our family loved the size and location of this house. It is also tastefully decorated and furnished. Previous reviews made the bunk beds sound uncomfortable. That was not the case for us; I am in my fifties and had no trouble sleeping on the lower bunk. There were no ants, wasps and spiderwebs on this weekend of August 19-21. We had to do some fly-swatting but that is to be expected when you're next door to a farm. If the kitchen screen door is fixed, that would be helpful. There are games available for indoor and outdoor play. A walk along the road is a photo opportunity: goldfinches flit about the wildflowers and friendly neighbors are willing to tell you about their brown Swiss and Angus cows.
My friends and I stayed at this farmhouse for a weekend to escape the city and relax. If you are not familiar with driving around in areas like this at night, make sure you drive slowly, because there aren't many street lights. When you do arrive you are greeted by a gorgeous old style farm house with a lot of property to walk on. If you think that's nice, wait until night and stand out on the back porch on the second floor, because you have front row tickets to one of the clearest nights I have ever seen. If you get bored around the house, you can get in your car and drive to Cooperstown which is close by. As your driving there you will be greeted by a crystal blue lake for most of your ride. The owners are very pleasant and accomodating to your needs and the house does have a few modern amenities to enjoy. This is a fantastic place that I would recommend to anyone visiting the area.
The property had lovely views, with front and back porches perfect for star-gazing. We were in town for a baseball tournament; it was nice to have a three bedroom property to spread out in, including kitchen and tv/reading areas. We enjoyed paddle-boarding on the nearby lake and visiting the local waterfall as well. The owner and property manager were quite friendly and responsive to our questions/needs.
I would add that it's a scenic drive to Cooperstown Dreams Park if you are in town for the baseball tournament; it does take around a half hour. You are quite close to the Glimmerglass opera house, as well as some great lake spots/hikes. Cooperstown itself is a must visit too. Upstate NY has much to offer, and the farmhouse is a great destination from which to explore.
Our very 1st night here, I actually slept like a log for 9 solid hours, something that hasn’t happened in years and years.
That fact alone speaks volumes about the serenity of this handsome country house, which easily accommodated our family of 6. The beds are comfortable (even the fold out downstairs), the sun drenched kitchen is roomy, modern and well equipped and the amenities are surprisingly good for a rustic, country setting.
We would gladly recommend this vacation home to others.
