We have a small hobby farm on 10 acres with a main house and guesthouse. The main house is across the driveway from the guesthouse.
The guesthouse can sleep 4 (5 with a roll away cot), and includes a fully functional eat-in kitchen (coffee maker and toaster included, as well as fridge and gas stove), back deck area with table, umbrella, and chairs, and small sitting room with a gas fireplace. The entire guesthouse is yours, whether you book one bedroom or all three. The guesthouse has one bathroom, with a shower, on the main floor, and a second bathroom with toilet and sink, on the second floor.
I stock the kitchen with coffee, tea, sugar, and cream. We have butter and local maple syrup in the fridge, as well as jelly that we have made from our berries and/or apples. Our home-pressed cider is available for you, too.
You may use the fire pit that is adjacent to the deck—I will provide kindling, paper, matches, and small logs.
Please feel free to roam all 10 acres of the farm. The playground is available for all guests. If you want to putter in the garden, or pick some of the produce with which we are blessed, just let me know, and I will provide what you need (weeding buckets, gathering baskets, etc). If I am pressing cider while you are here, I would love to share the process and the product. Come on over to the big tree in back of the main house!
You are welcome to observe the chickens when they are in the barn and as they roam the property, and you may help collect eggs, but we do ask that that you leave the chickens alone if they are in their nesting boxes. That's their safe space.
The entire property (all 10 acres) is shared space, and I usually am outside working during the day in the summer. When college is in session, I am available via text during the day, and in person after 5:00.
Please note that our check-in and check-out times are flexible. If you need to modify either time, please text, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
We are conveniently located halfway between the 4 colleges in the area, and are an hour from Ottawa, Ontario. You can make easy day trips to Montreal, Lake Placid, Lake Champlain, Syracuse, and the Thousand Islands Region. There are many restaurants within a 15 mile radius, and traffic is always easy. Come enjoy a peaceful rural setting with easy access to two college towns.
