Fun Stay

It was a fun stay. We were traveling a lot to a baseball tournament in Cooperstown so we did get near enough time to thoroughly enjoy all the great things this place has to offer, but it was fun. It's an old farm house so it's not the Ritz, but charming. My grand daughter LOVED the alpaca and chipmunks and woodchucks etc. I would recommend it to others

Relaxing time away from it all

  • 4 of 5

The farms delivers on all its promises: being close to nature, away from big-city noise and crowds, unforgettable views of the night sky and thousands of lightening bugs in the evening. The farmhouse is spacious and comfortable - there were 8 of us and we had plenty of room to sleep and... co-exist. The land is beautiful and ample. I believe all our meals were outside as we could not have asked for better weather. There are friendly chipmunks, which come out during meal times and are so adorable. We saw two groundhogs, which seem to be shy but do come out early in the morning. NOTE: There were no mosquitoes! We enjoyed the alpacas and llamas and even witness a birth of a baby alpaca! Our 3-year old had a wonderful time bonding with animals and enjoyed running around barefoot...

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse is on a big beautiful property, and its numerous bedrooms make for great weekends with family or friends. There is plenty of privacy and lots of room for activities or just hanging out. The alpaca pen on the property gives it that real farm feel, and offers the opportunity for plent of pictures. I would recommend staying at this house to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing weekend in the area.

Great house for large family gatherings.

Great house for family gathering, especially with the kids. They loved feeding the alpacas. We had 12 people, plenty of beds and rooms to move around in. At the house you feel away from it all but lots of stores only a few minutes away. They also allow dogs which a plus for us. Have rented many houses in the past, this one comes complete with linens and towels. Makes it so much easier to pack lighter. Quick response from owners with any questions we had. Norwich is a cute town to visit only a few miles away.

So much fun!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Luis and Yvette's home out for my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. There were a total of 10 girls, myself and another mother and our two husbands. The girls had a blast making videos with the alpacas and they also loved feeding the llama. The adults loved drinking wine and barbecuing on the beautiful deck while watching the kids play with the animals. Our husbands spent the day at Bowman State Park and they also went fishing which they say they had a blast doing. The home was clean and was decorated with country charm. The rooms where also very clean, large and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed lighting the indoor fireplace every night and singing songs together in the very cozy loving room. This rental was everything we wanted and more. We felt safe and the entire experience was easy. Thanks for your hospitality and we will see you again next year!
