The space
Come enjoy life on a farm, just 2.5 hours from NYC! Guests to our farm stay get the best of farming, enjoying visits with our goats and sheep, and getting to know our friendly, adorable ponies.

The sunny 2-bedroom cottage is in a renovated barn on 4 acres of pasture, creek, and woods, adjacent to the owners' 10-acres. Look outside the windows and you'll see ponies and sheep grazing in the pasture, and, quite likely, a flock of heritage-breed chickens happily free-ranging.

The apartment is fully furnished and comes with everything you need, including a fully-outfitted kitchen, towels, pillows, 100% cotton bed sheets, and blankets.

Each bedroom (a smaller and a larger) contains a queen-sized bed with a cotton futon mattress. Additionally, there is a queen-sized futon mattress in the loft, and a futon-couch in the living room.

The living room and kitchen are in one large room, and are separated by a round farmhouse-style oak table and chairs.

Up a sturdy farm ladder is the loft, equally suitable for playing on rainy days, or for creating a third sleeping area. For winter getaways, there is a woodstove by the kitchen, and a woodpile by the driveway.

Outside of the apartment there is a lawn area with a fire pit and a Weber grill, perfect for grilling and relaxing. The lawn looks out, to one side, on the ponies' pasture. Here, two Shetland ponies are grazing, as is our Nubian goat herd, who would love for you to come and pet them, and maybe feed them your apple cores. Meanwhile, straight ahead and down a small hill, there is a pony paddock, and a stable. Our farm stock changes steadily, but there are always chickens, ponies, goats, and sheep.

Guests are invited to share in the bounty of the vegetable garden.

One of the highlights of this rental is that guests can take part in the farm activities. Guests are encouraged to look for eggs, and to enjoy a dozen eggs per visit (if the hens are laying; in the winter they slow down on their egg-laying).

This rental is very family-friendly, and we have seen that children especially have a fabulous time visiting with our animals and taking part in farm life. It is a really wonderful thing to see a city child helping to round up the chickens, or gently holding the chicks, or picking green beans and tomatoes from the garden.

There are also trails through the woods, and a creek where our local wild population a heron, wood ducks, and beavers can often be spotted. We offer self-guided tours and scavenger hunts through the woods and farms for children. We also always supply a list of local food producers where you can buy meat, eggs, milk, cheese, soap, honey, etc.

We are located in Earlton, NY, a tiny hamlet that is about 10 minutes from Greenville and Coxsackie. In either of these towns you can find grocery stores, libraries, banks, even sushi and cappucinos for all your town needs. We are also less than 10 minutes from Boehm Farm, a family-run pick-your-own apple and peach orchard. Also 10 minutes to Greenville's incredible town park, which has several miles of wooded trails along stone walls and a river.

Further west, we are 45 minutes to Catskill State Park, including the world class skiing resorts, Windham and Hunter Mountains. In addition to skiing and snow-tubing, the Catskills offer spectacular outdoor destinations such as Kaaterskills Falls and North-South Lake, and other attractions such as Zoom Flume, a fabulous water park.

30 minutes south is the historic, artsy City of Hudson, a destination in itself. Here, you'll find an eclectic mix of antique shops that are almost like curated museums; great family restaurants like Baba Louie's (sourdough pizza and family-style salads), and amazing coffee shops like Rev. From May through October, there is a lot of food trucks.

Our family (two adults, two kids, 16 and 21) lives next door to the cottage, on an adjacent 10 acres. We are available to help with any questions, and to show you around the farm during appointed times-- or to leave you to enjoy your privacy if you prefer.

One thing to note: although the inside of the apartment is newly renovated, the outside of the apartment still has vinyl siding (restoring the outside is a future project!), and the downstairs basement and the barn next door are not part of the rental.

Guest access
Guests have access to our farm and woods. They can pet ponies, mingle with chickens, hang out with goats over the fence. They can also contract with our daughter for riding lessons ($30/hour). Guests are strictly forbidden from entering gated pastures or stalls without the owners present.

Other things to note
We finally have Wi-fi!

Our water has sulfur in it. We provide bottled water for drinking. Cooking, bathing, brushing teeth, and making coffee is fine and safe. It's just not pleasant to drink.
