  • We had a great visit with the Warrens - the accommodations were very spacious and super comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and fresh off the farm. It was very nice to wake up early and go for a short walk on the farm, see the animals and say good morning to the dogs that call the farm home. Tom and Denise were very patient with all my "farming" questions. Cooperstown (and the Baseball Hall of fame) was a short drive away and we were so glad we stayed on the farm. We will be back!
