Interaction with Guests
We enjoy meeting guests, informing them about area interests, and exchanging passions and interests (if they are interested)! We also know people like to get away to the quiet of the country and value their solitude.
Only 4.5 miles from Honesdale, PA; 10 miles from Narrowsburg, NY, and a step outside to nature, one can find a little bit of everything if you're willing to take the adventure!
A car is necessary.
Please respect our privacy and our farm business. No smoking or pets. We have plenty of pets you can visit while you're here!
Katherine and her family were wonderfully welcoming! They even invited us over for New Year's Eve festivities! The cabin is perfect, such an enjoyable special place, with charm and brightness, in the middle of a huge farm and garden! The barn is magic, especially when it was lit up at night; the chickens were fun and cute, and the cows were great to experience, too. There are plenty of trails and hiking, in the area, and longer hikes at the state park. The farm-fresh breakfasts were over-the-top, served on a giant tray -- ideal for breakfast in bed!
This was the best place to stay and relax. My girlfriend and I came here once in the fall and again in the winter to celebrate our one year anniversary and it was so lovely. The family embraces you as their family and their farm is beautiful. It's a dream to any cook who appreciates local farm raised vegetables and livestock not to mention the flowers and such. Even if you just like scenery, this is the place for you!
The cottage and the farm were just as gracious as Katherine, George, and their family. They were most welcoming and attentive to our needs. We befriended chickens, pigs, bees, and even the flowers. We came here for fresh air and found a space to sit and settle our mind. The tranquillity overwhelms in the best of ways. We were lucky enough to also visit during peak fall foliage. The colors! It couldn't have been more picturesque. Come read, sit by the pond and just breathe.
We're grateful to have met this family and to begin learning of their philosophy in which they guide their farm and family--a family that seems to be doing things right for our world.
We had a fabulous return visit to this cozy home-away-from-home! The hosts were welcoming, the breakfasts just as delicious as we remembered (with honey from the farm this time!) and the flowers in beautiful bloom.
One particularly fun part of our stay was seeing that the bunnies have multiplied from one to four since we last visited. We'll be back!
Me and my girlfriend stayed at the farm cottage after 5 hectic days in New York City and Washington, DC. It was a very welcome change of pace, just what we needed! When we arrived we were greeted by George and Katharine, who were very warm and welcoming hosts. If you are looking to get some peace and quiet, this is the place for you! The morning after we arrived we had a delicious breakfast prepared by Katharine, which was a very nice surprise. We explored some of the Pennsylvania countryside while we were staying, I can honestly say it was the best part of our trip! We had quite some snow while were there, which was a pretty sight, we'd like to come back sometime in spring or summer though and see the flowers!
Amazingly beautiful farm and very welcoming hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and are planning to come back in the spring or summer to see the flowers. Thank you!
Every time we said “Well, it can’t get any better than this” it got better! Fox Hill Farm was the perfect escape from the city. Catherine & George were great hosts - not to mention the kids and cast of adorable animals. Walking around the grounds of the farm you’ll find endless opportunities and enjoy everything around you. The town of Honesdale is just as nice as the farm itself. One of the birthplaces of the American Railroad, full of culture, history AND $1 ice cream cones!!! We’ll definitely be coming back for another stay.
