Other Things to Note
Unplug. Limited cell service. No television reception.
Two-night stay required on holiday weekends.
You are guests on a working farm with cattle, pigs, lambs, goats, ducks, geese, chickens, guinea hens, rabbits, border collies and livestock guardian dogs AND all the sights, sounds and aromas that go with a working farm. Please note that meals, including breakfast, are not included. Breakfast at Fable is included for additional fee.
No pets allowed on the farm. We love dogs (we have 10) but because the livestock guardian dogs work hard day and night to protect our livestock, your pet would be considered a threat to them and is not safe on our farm.
We absolutely loved staying in the Catskills FarmHand Cabin! The setting was even better than described, the Hosts were very accommodating, full of useful information and just really lovely people. The area was absolutely breathtaking and the cabin was terrific. It was just what we needed and we would stay there again in a heartbeat. Next time for longer...thank you again!
This cabin was a great treat. It is very clean and cozy. We were warm under the covers with the space heater cranked up. The real treat though was the breakfast cooked by Denise and interesting stories from Denise, Tom and the other nice guests that morning. A really fun way to experience upstate NY!!
We enjoyed staying in this cabin very much. If you enjoy animals- this is the place for you. We did visit during when the temperatures dropped a bit, and it did get pretty chilly at night. Check the weather and then visit!
The place was awesome, everything we wanted and more! Farm store was extremely convenient as we were traveling light and needed additional supply. Everything we needed was waiting for us in the cabin! Coffee, tea, fire making supply, pots and pans, a bunch or blankets and pillows. Very comfortable and the farm was beautiful. Denise was extremely helpful and available and the farm hand was very nice. Thanks !!!
This place is a gem. We spend lots of time in the Catskills, and lots of time traveling outside of NYC, and this might be one of our best finds to date. Stone & Thistle is a wonderful, beautifully maintained working farm in stunning Delaware County (which reminds me so much of Vermont). The property is nestled on a quiet road, surrounded by rolling hills and colorful mountains. The farmhand cabin is set back from the barn, down a short road that is easily reached by car or foot. It is well appointed and deliberately designed, with electricity, a fridge with water, an electric heater, and just about everything else you could need for your time away. We also had a lot of fun walking the property, interacting with the goats and sheep, visiting the chickens, and spending lots of time with the couple's many working dogs.
The highlight of our visit was the incredible basket dinner that Denise (a kind, inspiring woman!) prepared for us, and Tom brought down to the cabin. For a bargain $35/person, we had three delicious courses, prepared almost exclusively from seasonal, farm sourced ingredients. Denise is a masterful cook, and old a cold night, her corn and bacon chowder simply cannot be beat. I will dream about her pumpkin pie until I return and demand some more ;)
My friends and I had an amazing day on Denise and Tom's cabin. Perfect place to disconnect—lots of napping in the sun, went to a nearby lake to canoe and swim for the day, and tried our hand at campfire grilled pizzas. Denise and Tom couldn't have been more accommodating (arrived super late and asked to leave late, too) and the farm and the surrounding area is a breathtaking place to spend a warm fall day. Thank you so much!!
