Surrounded by 22 acres of rolling pastures with the high peaks as a back drop, you will feel supremely cozy and tucked away under a fluffy down comforter. Une chambre d'hote a la ferme! Les francophones sentiraient bienvenues--nous parlons francais!
A charming little space with a delicious breakfast to boot!
The suite is stocked with a variety of teas & coffee (made with French press), records (both old and new), books, and games. There is an electric kettle for boiling water and a small fridge for keeping foodstuffs. Guests are invited to stroll the pastures and bask on the lawn!
Your reservation includes a French breakfast of fresh-baked bread, butter, jams, fruit, and a sampling of our very own cheeses. Breakfast is served between 8:30 and 9:00 (The rule on the farm is that humans eat only after all of the animals have been fed).
Wireless internet is available on the farm (in the farm store) but not in the room itself.
Guests are invited to explore our 22 acres of pasture and visit with our small herd of Brown Swiss cows. Check out our on-site Farm Store where we sell our cave-aged, farmstead cheeses and raw milk along with fresh products from neighboring farms (yogurt, eggs, meats etc)!
Interaction with Guests
Margot and I live on the property in an old sugar house and are around almost all the time- staying busy with milking, farm chores, cheesemaking, etc. Guests at the Farmhouse Suite can have about as much, or as little, interaction with us as they'd like.
The Farmhouse Suite is ideally situated within minutes from a myriad of hiking trails, a stones throw from the Au Sable River full of swimming holes and epic fly fishing sites, and smack dab in the middle of the most popular Adirondack biking routes. We are:
-5 miles from Whiteface Mt.
-6 miles from Keene
-11 miles from Keene Valley
-14 miles from Lake Placid.

Simplicity and serenity are the selling points of Sugar House Creamery’s guest suite. If you’re looking for an escape from your usual bustle, booking this BnB is the way to go. Though terms like ‘cozy,’ quaint,’ and ‘cute’ may be a bit overused for dairy farm bed and breakfast reviews, they’re a perfectly appropriate fit here. The suite has a hospitable hominess to it; you’ll likely notice this the moment you set your bags down and settle into the soft chairs beside the record player. When Margot delivers the delicious, beautiful breakfast in the morning, complete with cheese and milk straight from the farm (seriously, it’s like eating the perfect Instagram foodie photo), you’ll feel like your day is already made. Alex is an endearing, conversational host who is happy to show you around the farm. Whether your stay is under the summer sun or during the blistering cold of winter, Sugar House Creamery has a subtle magic that sticks around in any season.
Perfect getaway. We loved the fresh breakfast everyday. Would certainly stay again. Thanks
This was our second stay at the Sugar House Creamery and we enjoyed it tremendously. Our cozy room provided every comfort and many thoughtful touches such as fuzzy slippers, small refrigerator, and coffee/tea provisions. The bucolic country setting is the perfect antidote to stressful city living, and Margot & Alex are wonderful hosts....warm, welcoming, and inspiring. It was great to come back and see how their small farm has grown into a such a successful enterprise, and to feast on yummy breakfasts of homemade cheese, bread, butter, fruit and oatmeal. We also stocked up on delicious fresh raw milk and more cheeses from their farm store to bring home. The Adirondack region offers fantastic skiing, skating and winter sports (and in summer, great hiking, climbing, fishing, boating and swimming). So much to do and so little time... We miss it already and will definitely be back!!!
My wife and I had an amazing experience staying at the Sugar House Creamery. Alex and Margot were very welcoming, and are running a beautiful farm making delicious cheese. This was one of the most relaxing weekends we've had via Airbnb, and we're already planning to come back next year. Oh, and the breakfasts are not to be missed!
Alex and Margot (stella and Wendy too) were wonderful hosts. We truly enjoyed the suite and daily breakfast on their creamery. This is a perfect way to unwind off the beaten path--- 15 minutes away from lake placid and whiteface. Still enjoying their cheeses- delicious!!
We had a great time - Margot made us feel very welcome and the coziness of the space was extremely peaceful and relaxing. Being on the farm provides a very restful and unique experience.
It's hard to say what we loved most about the trip - Margot and Alex's wonderful hospitality, the beautiful cows, the fresh dairy products, the cosy cottage or the beautiful location.
Despite their hectic schedule, they took the time to show us around and gave us a glimpse of their world.
Looking forward to visiting them again in the summer.

My girlfriend, Margot, and I bought an old Adirondack dairy farm in the summer of 2012 with plans to rebuild the dairy and make artisanal cheeses.
