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.
Fantastic place! Nothing beat the sheppard dogs leading a herd of goats over the porch. If you love farms, animals, food, then this is the place to stay in the Cooperstown area. The stream next to the cabin provided a nice, soothing noise environment.
You simply won't find a better place to stay in the Cooperstown area. If you are visiting Ommegang, the brewery is a short 30 minute drive all on back roads.
The scenery and serenity of the cabin and location are only matched by the sincerity of Denise, Shane and Tom.
If you enjoy nature and camping you have to stay here.
Thank you Denise, Shane, and Tom, for your very deep devotion to your hard work. Thank goodness you have figured out ways to share it with those who are outsiders, dreaming of being an insider. This is, beautiful life, on and in a farm.
Thank you for the late check-out flexibility, last-minute acceptance of our reservation, and for receiving us so warmly. So grateful for our trip!!
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!

About the Host, Denise, Shane And Tom
Farm owner with husband Tom Warren and son Shane of Stone & Thistle Farm, a grass based livestock farm, Kortright Creek Creamery, a goat dairy and small creamery and Fable=farm+table - a seasonal on-farm restaurant. We are passionate about farming, great food and sharing with our community. Our busiest time of the year is May to October when we do farmers markets, farm tours, dinners and brunch and Fable, farm events, farm chores, projects, building, repairing, vetting, gardening - but we are never too busy to meet new people and learn something new and different. As a guest on our farm, you can participate in farm chores or relax on the farm, eat great farm fresh food, enjoy nearby hiking, swimming, skiing or shopping for books, antiques, visiting farmers markets, museums or state parks.
