Overview

Pennsylvania Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Designer Modern Farmhouse & Event Barn for Weddings, Parties, Special Events

Cooper's Farmhouse is a serene luxury residence located 2 hours from New York City on the border of Pennsylvania and NY State in Shohola, PA. Shohola is Native American meaning peace and tranquility. This property is situated on 5 pastoral acres, overlooking the Catskills of New York. The Farm is a newly renovated 1866 boarding house which was historically used to board patrons of the former Shohola Falls Glenn amusement park which, in its hey day, brought thousands of people each weekend at the turn of the century. This luxury home sleeps a 12 people (this includes infants & children…we do not accommodate more than 12 total).

There is a massive gourmet kitchen-living area and spa-like bathroom and laundry on the first floor. On the second floor there are 4 queen sized beds and 2 twin sized pillow-top beds in addition to another two massive bathrooms. The third floor is the en suite bedroom, complete with a king sized bed and spa bathing room with a massive window overlooking the property. Our artisanal Well provides magnificent water that is simply pure and amazing.

We have a large entertainment barn for an additional fee of $600 for groups of 12 or less. There are 2 outdoor patios, outdoor furniture, outdoor fireplace, fire pit and a stainless steel Thermador grill.

You'll wake up to fresh pastoral country air every morning. You can hike, kayak, paint, cook or just do nothing! After all, we all retreat in different ways.

Nearby Cooper's Farmhouse are a host of many things to do in Sullivan, Orange and Pike County. Within 5 minutes is the award winning Barryville Farmer’s market located in the back yard of River Market (June-Oct).

Yes, most people get cell service here at the farm. Our high speed internet wifi will also keep you easily connected.

Please know that we attempt to accommodate reservations. The earlier you reserve the better.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here November to get away. It was BEYOND our expectations. Paula, the house manager, was so helpful and ready to answer any questions. Ok, now for the property. This is a high end designer property that exudes nothing but warmth. Some high end places are stuff and cold. This home feels like a cozy sweater that you just don't want to leave. We cooked, laughed, drank wine, went for walks, went to the fabulous River Market General Store (which he owns fyi) and slept. We all felt 100 percent about our stay and will return for years to come. Thank you Cooper. Thank you Paula. Thank you Blue Stone Farm for making this an amazing life time memory.

Amazing farm and stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion for the second year in a row at this lovely Pennsylvania country farmhouse. It had everything we needed and more. A lovely quiet country setting and a beautifully renovated farmhouse. We will definitely strongly consider returning next year and all our family would highly recommend this for gatherings of any kind.

Great house and estate!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, what a fantastic kitchen. Lovely bathrooms, outodor grill, expansive grass. Nearby neighbors were very friendly, has a sort of far-flung suburbs feel.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last week with 5 team members from my company for a 3 day off site meeting to discuss business in a completely different environment. The house is really well maintained and all rooms and amenities are in excellent condition. Bathrooms are really nice! The location is great and really away from it all close to a beautiful part of the delaware river. Abundant wild life around, great garden and since all of us like to cook the kitchen and grills are perfect with all that is needed for great breakfast, lunch and diner. Owner friendly and very responsive. Definitely a place to return with some friends to unwind and relax!

Second Hooneymoon

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 30th Anniversary at this beautiful farmhouse tucked away in Shohola. The house was all lit up when we arrived and it was like coming home to family that you haven't seen in ages. The minute you step inside you relax, all the rooms were immaculate and inviting. The kitchen is the heart of the house and cooking was a delight, nothing like fresh eggs for breakfast, my compliments to the chickens that reside here !!! We had a fabulous time relaxing and reconnecting. We would love to come back again. Thank you for sharing your home.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Blue Stone Farm is one of my favorite places, starting with the owner. The life-loving energy that radiates from him has infused this property. The kitchen is an incredible place for everyone from the master chef to the budding baker (my 10 year old was making 'potions'), and spacious enough for a group to all cook together. The bathrooms, oh my, there is something for everyone, from a luxurious spa shower to a gorgeous soaking tub (I can't decide which I enjoyed more!). The beds are so comfy you won't want to get up. The views from every window are breathtaking. We enjoyed every moment on the farm and in the farmhouse and cannot wait to go back.

If you want to kick back and relax, this is the place to do it. Ironically, if you want to have some adventures and have a gorgeous spot to reconvene after, this is also the place to do it. There truly is something for everyone here.
