Charming 1700s Farmhouse Within Commuting Distance To New York City

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,200 sq ft
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10


Renovated farmhouse minutes from 50,000 acre Harriman/Bear Mountain State Parks with amazing hiking, fall foliage, and 20 lakes for swimming, fishing and boating. Property would be great for anyone that loves hiking and being outdoors or lovely old houses. (We're sorry, but we do not rent to collage age groups.)

The house has original wood floors throughout, two fireplaces (one huge), dutch doors, a renovated kitchen with many original features, and two great porches (one screened).

The backyard is large, level and has a fire pit.

RATES: For holiday weekends, we have a 3 night minimum and a premium; please see the Notes section under rates. Memorial Day weekend 2017 is also West Point graduation this year; please see below.

TO OUR WEST POINT GUESTS: We are NOW taking reservations for Graduation 2017. Please inquire about the rates (and please do not make 'reservation requests' that we have to decline). For now, we have a six night minimum, as that was the most common request last year. We are not yet taking reservations for 2018; we will announce it here when we are; it will be August 2017 at the earliest.

Cadets - sorry, we do not rent to college age groups. Please don't make reservation requests that we will have to decline; it hurts our listing placement. Thanks!

About Peter Cain

Donna and I love to hike and kayak and recently bought a new house even closer to great hiking in Harriman State Park.

Peter Cain purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Peter Cain chose Pomona

This house was purchased as a weekend house from New York City, because it was only an hour away but had all the charm and proximity to outdoor activities one could ask for.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The character and warmth of all the living and outdoor spaces, combined with the proximity to both New York City and great hiking and outdoor recreation make this property one-of-a-kind!

Excellent property. Plenty of room to spread out with wonderful common areas. .

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the grill, fire pit and covered porch and patio. My kids enjoyed the large backyard.

The house was better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

I was expecting a typical "old house" but this place was fabulous. Houses that pre-date the existence of America are not too common. Houses that pre-date America, are well kept, appropriately modernized and made available by gracious hosts are an impossibly rare find! Our only disappointment is that we didn't have any hauntings by revolutionary war soldier ghosts. We will come back here ever year!

Great group getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time hosting a group of friends with families at this great house. We love the communal

spaces and the fireplace. The bedrooms are nicely separated from

the common areas. The proximity to Bear Mountain and to any sort of store

you might need makes it perfect. I am sure we will be back again.

Cozy and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely for our large group - it was big enough to house us but felt cozy and welcoming. Everything was clean, the heating worked great, and the bathrooms even had stocked shampoo and conditioner. The living room with the fireplace was especially nice to relax in! The kitchen was stocked with plenty of spices, cooking utensils, and plates/cutlery, so cooking was easy and straightforward. The house is conveniently close to both nature at Harriman State Park and all necessities at Stop and Shop. Finally, Peter was very responsive over text and helpfully flexible with our check-in and check-out times. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend it!

Remarkably beautiful and cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I had been looking for a nice place to host family visiting from out of town for weeks! I had found Peter's farmhouse but didn't move fast enough with the reservation and another family swooped in. Sadly I continued my search but luckily found an email from Peter in my inbox a few weeks after this! He was kind enough to reach out to see if I were still interested and in fact I was! I had my husband's family in from Ireland visiting and their first and lasting impression for me was when we toured the house, the smiles were never ending and I believe the words were, "it's a home away from home". We also had my family in from Georgia and Florida - there was plenty of space in and out - throughout the house for it not to feel like we were stepping on anyone's toes at all. The layout is very impressive and seemingly never ending. 5 beautiful bedrooms with heat or air throughout. (The beds are very comfortable and if you need extra sheets or pillows they have them tooAs you walk throughout the house you're mystified by the beauty of such an old home. The old wooden floors really are breathtaking. All the small details make for a sturdy, warm and welcoming home atmosphere. We had a graduation celebration one evening and Peter was also kind enough to accept my rental chairs and tables in my absence. The dinner celebration was hosted and everything went seeminglessly, as if you've owned the house for years. Ample amount of tables and everyone was extremely comfortable in the house.

Unforgettable Farmhouse with Modern Conveniences

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends stayed at the1700s Farmhouse during our visit to West Point. The 1700s farmhouse has been well maintained with wooden floors/woodwork, large brick fireplace, and spacious yard. It has a fully equipped kitchen, functional bathrooms, and spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds for a restful night's sleep. The farmhouse has plenty of room for several guests to visit or to get away to themselves if needed. The backyard is spacious and has a large porch for a barbecue or a fire. Our family/guests simply enjoyed the fall foliage and the flock of turkey that migrated through the backyard in the morning. Our hosts was very accommodating and helpful. We will be back on our future visits to the Pomona Farmhouse if it is available. Our stay was enjoyable and the memories priceless.
