A spacious and cozy 1790 farmhouse is set in rural Washington County, New York. This listing is for the entire house with seven bedrooms; four have king size beds. Two bedrooms are on the first floor. All rooms have a sink. Guests also enjoy all of the common rooms including the two full bathrooms, playroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen.

Whole house is available May through November. Max guests 16.

The space
This stately house is light, airy, relaxing, and simple. Our guests feel at home, whether sitting in the livingroom and playing the baby grand piano, or relaxing on the screened in porch rocker. The kitchen has an Andes Wood Parlor stove (1930) to warm the room on chilly spring and fall mornings. The 1932 Magic Chef gas stove is great for stove top cooking, and the dining room can be set for 12-14 guests. The wall-mounted Crystal Arcade coffee grinder (1925), provides you with fresh ground coffee.
In addition to the five bedrooms listed on Air BnB, the large room over the kitchen, affectionately called the Bridal Suite, is available with a king size bed. It is the most rustic room in the house, with hand hewn beams and rafters, wide board floors, and two windows that face west. This room has a copper roof, so during rainy nights, the din of pelting drops, flashing strobes, and wicked thunder make for a most romantic experience.

Guest access
All of our farm stay guests are welcome to use the common rooms: living room, dining room, playroom, kitchen, and back porch. We have space in our fridge for storing some perishables and drinks. Freezer space is also available. There are two full bathrooms, which are shared by all guests. The bathroom on the upper floor has a clawfoot tub/shower. The bathroom on the first floor has a tiled walk-in shower with an adjustable shower head. Each bedroom has its own sink.

Other things to note
This antique 18th century house is welcoming to children of any age (infants to 90+) and our playroom includes toys and games for young people. We also allow guests to bring well behaved dogs, though we cannot allow cats in the house, as some guests are allergic.
We strive to keep the house comfortable and peaceful. This is why there are no TVs in our guest rooms and no TV reception. However we do have a DVD player in the playroom for watching movies, and we have satellite internet to stay connected.

The farmstead was built by David Hopkins in 1790, after the revolution and the signing of the articles of confederation. George Washington was president of the fledgling nation. The Hopkins family came from Rhode Island with the Wilson family. The Wilson homestead is just half a mile away on Chamberlain Mills Road.

The area has been dedicated to dairy farming, however some farms are converting to meat production, sending grass-fed beef, pork, and lamb to markets in Albany, New York, and Boston. The homestead was last farmed by Owen and Grace Ensign from 1920 to around 1960. It was renovated by Charlie and Aggy Duveen without destroying the simple charm of the house, and it has been run as a farm stay since 2005.

We currently have one gentle donkey, Winonah, who patrols the east and west pastures. Guests are welcome to bring her carrots. Our dog, Lucy, and outdoor cat, Uno, along with forty or so happy, free range hens complete the menagerie.

Teacher of middle school science and math. I grew up in Brooklyn NY and spent 8 years in the Navy, where I learned quite a bit more than I ever did in college. Worked at Unisys Corp for 16 years and currently running a farmstead in rural up state NY. My wife, Aggy, and I meet lots of folks from around the country, Canada, and some from over seas. As soon as I publish my first block-buster novel, we'll get this old 1790 farmstead in even better shape than it is now.
