I'm so happy my friends and I decided to book Sky Acres Farm. What a beautiful retreat! The 7 of us were very comfortable... the place just feels like home. The views from the property are beautiful... I swear I've never seen stars so big and bright in my entire life. Going in the winter was great but all I could think about was how badly I want to return in the summer! The house was very clean, and plenty stocked so don't fret if you forget something. The artesian well water is actually the best water I think I've ever had. Out in the middle of nowhere, guaranteed privacy... in fact I don't think I saw one car on the road the entire weekend. Dennis was great with the communication and very easy going... he helped us with check in, showed us around, and answered all of our questions. A great host, a beautiful property, and a place I would for sure love to visit again!
We enjoyed our stay at Sky Acres. The house is well-supplied and comfortable, and the grounds are beautiful, very extensive, and well-maintained. Dennis and Posey were there when we arrived and gave us a tour of the house, map of the grounds, and printed driving directions into Cobleskill and Cooperstown. They are very friendly hosts and were respectful of our privacy.
The two main bedrooms and "dorm" room with lots of beds were very comfortable. The third double bedroom is very nice but seems to have been originally intended as a sitting room; it has the only bathroom on the second floor. Even though there is a curtain for privacy, we were awoken by noise/light when others came through at night. I would suggest you plan accordingly, and either avoid using that bed or putting a heavy sleeper there.
Driving distances to Cooperstown and Cobleskill were longer than we anticipated based on the ad. We would suggest you arrive with your basic groceries, as a run to the Price Chopper took a long time!
I had a great weekend with a group of friends at this property. Dennis (the host) was very accommodating and exceptionally responsive. The house itself is both charming and spacious. Even with a full house we never felt cramped. The property is truly enormous (200+ acres) and has a lot to offer. If you're looking to get away to a quiet place but stay close enough to attractions, this is it.
