The house is situated across from Gardenworks, a specialty crop farm & market place. Each season features farm produce, greenhouse crops, U-pick blueberries & raspberries in summer, acres of fall pumpkins and fall raspberries followed by Christmas trees & hand tied wreaths & trimmings.

The farm house was my family home for 3 generations and it continues to welcome folks who embrace country living surrounded by active farms, small villages and extensive recreational opportunities. You may explore the nearby quaint villages of Salem, Cambridge and Greenwich with their special shops, summer theater & restaurants. Saratoga Springs is 45 minutes away and offers history, ballet, performing arts, horse racing and many restaurants.

About Meg and Rob Southerland

We are outgoing, friendly people who love living in a beautiful agricultural area where Meg grew up. We returned to this area so our children could be close to grandparents and could experience country living. Now 25 years later, we embrace life on the farm and stay busy with Gardenworks, a 4-season business and marketplace.

Relaxing stay in the country! Amazing hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved their time spent here. Great house to spread out. The hearth room with the wood stove was a favorite place to play games around the table. The kids enjoyed sledding and playing in the snow. A true taste of New England!

Meg and Rob were AMAZING hosts. Be sure to visit their lovely store across the street. They also shared breads, cheeses and wine during our stay. We have stayed in many places and we shall call this one of our favorites!

Beautiful and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for a weekend on our way up to Vermont from down south. The house is beautiful, well-appointed, and would easily accommodate many more comfortably. Meg and Rob provided wonderful hospitality (the cheese and wine was terrific) and could not have been more friendly and responsive.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host Dan and his family at our farmhouse. We enjoyed some conversation about the Philadelphia area as we had lived there in the 1970's. The house was left in excellent condition and we would welcome a return visit. Thanks again for being our guests. Glad that the local wine and cheese was enjoyed! Meg and Rob Southerland Gardenworks Farm Salem, NY.
