Description

The space

This area was settled in the late 1700's. Both the main farm house and the little house are post and beam construction. The stream which flows around our yard goes under the barn and through the milk house. It was used to cool the milk in times past.

Our dogs have an invisible fence which keeps them in the yard behind the big house. You're welcome to come over and visit with them. They will try to get you to throw their toy all day so that they can bring it back to you. Warning. The dogs are very friendly, but very big and very messy. They play in the stream and then come to greet you both wet and dirty!
There are two cats that live in the barn. Sometimes they like to be picked up and sometimes they don't. They are not allowed in the house.

Guest access

There are picnic tables, swings, and a grill by the pond. The walk to the top of our hill is definitely a bit of a workout, but the view is worth it!
There is a phone in the little house. Ask about making calls. (Your cell phone may or may not work. Your GPS may or may not work, and maps doesn't seem to be able to figure out where we are.)

Interaction with guests

Let us know what you desire. If you just want to be by yourselves, we'll leave you alone. If you want to have meals with us in the big house, that can be arranged. We love to visit with people, but our first priority is to give you what you need.

The neighborhood

This is a farming area. The farms are still small family farms and there are many Amish in the area. We believe we have some of the most beautiful scenery you can find. It' a mixture of hilly farms and forest. There are cows, horses, and sheep grazing in pastures. Deer and turkey are plentiful.

Getting around

You'll need a car to explore the area. Roads are well maintained, but hilly and curvy. Allow a little extra time driving if you aren't used to the hills and curves. There could be a tractor or a horse and buggy just around that curve.
There are a multitude of unique little villages, each with their own variety of interesting shops. Let us know your interests and we'll head you in the right direction.

Other things to note

Those interested in the horses are able to interact with them with supervision.

It was very nice, quiet local, beautiful walk in the dark with the sky illuminating our way... so quiet and peaceful. Although Ann was away when we arrived, it was all smooth even in her absence. Ed came by to check on us and Ann came by later to check on us. All was good.

Ann and Ed's lovingly restored little house is perfect-sized and very sweet. The location is quiet and beautiful and was a welcome retreat from a local event I was covering. Ann and Ed are kind hosts, I enjoyed a nice conversation with them and hearing about the history of the little house. The place is very well appointed, as others have said, they've thought of everything. The kitchen is excellent with a clean fridge, nice sink and, my favorite part, a tiny vintage Welbilt range. There are lots of windows on all sides of the house that I was able to open for a lovely country breeze on a hot September night. I will book again when I'm in the area--a new home away from home.

I just loved this little house so much- so sad we only stayed for such a short time. I really would've loved to spend more time there & on the farm but we had to leave as soon as we woke. One of the best night's sleep I've had in a long time! It's decorated beautifully and has all the things you'd need for a cozy stay. I definitely want to visit again when we need a little getaway :) Had a great time looking through their guestbook from their travels and this home in the morning.

We met Ed when we arrived...he helped us into the home and showed us around. We were welcome to use whatever was available and the home was immaculate!! Lovely, quiet, peaceful. Just what we needed...

Charming little spot out of the hustle and bustle of Cooperstown. Spent just a night but very peaceful and relaxing. Countryside is beautiful.

What a great, cozy place to stay! Ann was very accommodating, and the place was clean and had everything we needed. Wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights, but enjoyed the 3 days while we were there. It is only a short drive to Cooperstown and the surrounding areas, so it was perfect. Would love to stay here again the next time we plan a visit to the area! Thanks!

My son and I stayed for 2 nights at Ann & Ed's country cottage during a recent trip for the Baseball Hall of Fame induction weekend in Cooperstown. Their home is 30 minutes away from Cooperstown. For West Coasters new to the area, the drive was made a lot easier with our trusty Garmin. Ann & Ed are excellent hosts. Ann communicated with us during the weeks leading up to our stay and offered helpful directions. We felt very welcome. The accommodations were as described & pictured. Since most of our time was spent at events in Cooperstown, we had no time to explore Ann & Ed's beautiful property and nearby area. Be sure to check out the photo book to see what the property looked like when they purchased it. What a lovely transformation!

My husband and I worked in Africa as missionaries for almost 20 years. We moved to our farm in November 2001. We use the farm as a place to minister to hurting people. We also raise Labrador Retrievers and have several Haflinger horses on the farm. I love horses and have had horses my whole life, even when we lived in Africa. We both enjoy the outdoors. My husband likes to hunt and fish. We enjoy hiking and traveling. We have three children and seven grandchildren that we think are absolutely wonderful!
