Early 1800's stone farmhouse with gardens, orchards, pastures, woods, pond and barns outside, fireplaces and elegant rooms inside. The house was renovated in 1989 and a large addition was added.
The house has five bedrooms, four are available for the B&B. Three of the rooms are on the second floor - Master has its own bathroom with steeping tub and separate shower, Fireplace and Blue Room share a bathroom with shower/tub. If you wish to have private bath, we will not rent out the other room, no worries.
Guest Suite is the largest and most private room as it is in the addition. There is a balcony which overlooks the solarium and which also ha a window seat bed for an additional person. The suite also has a spacious bathroom with a two person jacuzzi a separate shower, skylight and palladian window.

Aria is located on a hilltop two miles from Glimmerglass Opera Festival and Otsego Lake. There are three golf courses nearby including one you can walk to next door. This is a great location from which to start a bike ride around Lake Otsego or a shorter drive down the road to Allen Lake, namesake of this road (and original owner of the house). You are welcome to walk the grounds and woods; walk down to the pond. In winter you can cross country ski right out the door.
All rooms have large windows with beautiful views, historic colors, period furniture and powerful ceiling fans.
In addition to offering great bedrooms, there is a delightful kitchen with cozy dining area and a roaring fireplace in chillier weather. The house has a comfortable living room / library and a solarium with cathedral ceiling, french doors and slate floors. This room is great for entertaining guests.
We have a piano for your use and some other instruments. We can provide you with musical entertainment for your gathering, just ask... your host is a talent agent.
In addition to serving you a delicious French-inspired farm to table breakfast, Aria also offers to prepare meals for you and your invited friends, or cocktail parties pre and post opera (by prior arrangement, of course). We use freshest ingredients possible, organic when possible, and we support our local farmers. Your veggies, herbs and apples come from our gardens and orchard while eggs, poultry and berries come from from a neighbor a mile down the road. Call to discuss our cuisine and options for your gathering. We are on (website hidden) at Aria B+B, Springfield Center, NY.
The house and business is also for sale. More details upon request.
You are most welcome here at Aria!
