Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Tom

We all enjoyed your friendly hospitality.

Your home is warm and inviting.

Thank you for the fire Sat. night.

We sat there for a long time while Connor and Keely played with Duke.

We learned a lot about maple syrup and were happy to buy some to take home to family.

All in all it was a perfect place to celebrate Connor's 12th birthday.

We hope to return again.

Thanks from all of us

Great place for grandkids!

With the lake, island, bridge, tree fort, and many hilly acres to explore, this is a great place to get together with the grandkids. Very well furnished.

There were 8 of us adults staying at this property. Plenty of space for all of us! It had just about everything provided that a person would need! Beautiful property!! We took advantage of the hiking, fishing, cornhole, & fire ring. Terry was very nice and extremely helpful in making our stay perfect!! We came home with many great memories that we'll hold onto forever!! I would highly recommend this property!

Great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

The place has a great setting. The kids loved fishing in the lake, and the entire family enjoyed hiking through the woods. The kitchen was large for eating and the preparation of meals.

Guys Trip to the Mohican!

  • 5 of 5

We did a guys trip for my "bachelor party" to Maplewood Farm. I wanted to do something more low key and relaxed for my bachelor party instead of the typical city thing. The property was amazing, and the owner was helpful in every way. The pond was excellent for fishing, the scenery was beautiful and the house and its features were accommodating for all of us. We couldn't have asked for a better place for this once in a lifetime trip. We did some golfing and canoeing, and the rest of the time, we hung out at the house and grilled out and played yard games. Great place, and would recommend to everyone!

Better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

A group of us were getting away for the weekend to hike and canoe in Mohican and enjoy the area. The cabins in the area were mostly booked up so I found this place. From the pictures it looked nice but a little nervous about it being a farmhouse as you never know how it's been maintained. Well, as soon as I walked on the property I realized it was a great setting and really cared for. Terrific views of Pleasant Valley, the pond, and well maintained property. The property (inside and out) is well maintained and really the perfect setting for a group traveling together. When we're back in the area I will choose this over a cabin every time. Great experience.
