As guests of the property you are encouraged to explore the beautiful pristine nature that defines Field and Stone – with its year-round flowing streams, hidden waterfalls, remnants of old outbuildings, high meadows with long-range views, pastoral open fields, and historic handcrafted stone walls.
Hike through the sweeping fields, fish in the trout stream, picnic in the meadow, play games in the backyard, meditate streamside, sip wine on a blanket under the stars, chat around the bonfire, visit a neighboring farm, or pop into town for a snack at the general store.
This is the ideal place to quietly retreat, relax and recharge or to gather for fun with friends and family.
We are located in a pristine valley surrounded by private land (with public fishing streams) in a place that feels forgotten by time. If you are looking to relax and unwind this is truly a spectacular experience.
The sweet and sleepy town of Bovina has one renowned and outstanding restaurant, Brushland Eating House (reservations highly recommended), and you won't find a better egg sandwich or grilled ham and cheese than at Russell's General Store. Find the FosterBuilt Coffee cart on Main Street for all your fire-roasted small batch coffee needs!
Field and Stone is blessed with a long and rich history. The Farmhouse was built in the 1880s by Archibald F. Maynard on what is believed to have been the same spot where one of Bovina’s original settlers, Elisha B. Maynard, settled in the 1790s.
Elisha B. Maynard, credited as being the first settler in the area, came to the region between 1790 and 1792 with two yokes of oxen and a cart and settled on Maynard Brook, the stream now known as the Little Delaware that runs through the property. It is said that Maynard, a Revolutionary soldier, had followed the Indian trail, settling in this valley and purchasing the 150 acres that constituted the Maynard farm. The first birth in Bovina also took place here, that of one of his sons, Elisha H. Maynard, in 1793.
Under Archibald’s direction, the Maynard estate functioned as a leading dairy farm in the late 1800s producing thousands of pounds of butter from just a handful of Jersey cows. The farm buildings were built in the finest order, and the grounds were elaborately arranged and decorated. The ancestral farm remained in the Maynard family until the 1930s.
We warmly welcome you to escape into nature and experience the farm’s rebirth as Field and Stone.
