*** Midweek Summer Special! ***

In looking at our calendar for the coming months, we have noticed that many of the summer weekends have been reserved. We do have time midweek for reservations.

So, for any month in 2018, you can stay at the Amish Guest Farmhouse for 4 nights for only $1998! That's a savings of $382! Check out our calendar to see if there is a time for you!

Located at 386 Route 14, Penn Yan, New York, 14527, on the west side of Seneca Lake, the deepest of the Finger Lakes in upstate New York.

Conveniently located about 12 minutes from both Geneva & Penn Yan on the Seneca Lake wine trail.

In 2012, the property was purchased by a local horse-and-buggy Mennonite family. The Weaver family and their seven children are working each day to turn this farm and home into a nostalgic haven of rest for the world-weary travelers and for those who long for a more simple life.

While there is WiFi connection in the home, the Weaver family encourages visitors to hike, bike, and enjoy nature. There are herds of deer, friendly small animals, as well as many kinds of birds, and maybe a rare glimpse of a coyote.

With prior permission, visitors may enjoy most of the privacy of the farm's 85 acres, including a creek and gorge.

The farm boasts a spacious front yard that borders Route 14, and the only remaining working railroad in the region. Trains pass slowly once a day, creating a nostalgic twist to days gone by.

Enjoy a show of the morning sunrise or an afternoon picnic, complete with gorgeous lake views, from the spacious side porch.

This home offers a spacious 3,500 square feet, and can easily accommodate approximately 20 people. Enjoy gathering with friends and family in the beautiful wood-finished great room around the cozy fireplace.

The updated kitchen offers enough space to cook a feast, a new six-burner cooktop, double wall oven, stainless steel dishwasher, garbage disposal, large walk-in pantry, microwave, granite countertops and a large stainless steel fridge & freezer.

The Weaver family has been involved in greeting visitors for the past 18 years with the handmade quilts they've designed and sold all over the world. The family currently runs a small quilting studio out of the barn located on the property that features their charming homemade Amish quilts, homemade jams & jellies and homegrown vegetables when they're in season. To ensure the comfort and privacy of our guests, vacation rental parking is separate from the rest of the farm.

The home is decorated with local hand-stitched quilts, giving it a cozy old-fashioned feel.

Give us a call to book your dream vacation in the beautiful Finger Lakes!

This farm house is also available and perfect for weddings, reunions, church group retreats, quilting & sewing retreats, picnics and so much more!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Weave View farms. We got married and had a very small wedding in the outside garden. The house is huge and easily accommodated all of guests. The kitchen is fabulous. Kitchen is equipped with all the euipmeny you need with dinner set for 20 people. All kinds of cleaning equipment is there along with a great laundry.

Pauline and her family has kept the house as if it’s their own and not just a rental property. The house is warm and inviting. It has the touch of love and care. We would definitely go back.

Wonderful place for gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Weaver farm. The house was perfect for us having family and friends come from out of town for my daughters college graduation. The front porch was perfect for setting up the food and plenty of space for everyone to mingle outside. We would recommend for anyone that has a large family or gathering planned. This kitchen is huge and was great for cooking for the 18 people we had in the morning for breakfast to serve. Plenty of space for everyone to sit and eat. Had a wonderful time and would love to come back in the future!

Great place for our large family!!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas celebration here. There was plenty of space, even in the kitchen (where we tend to gather)! Everything was very clean and just lovely. Pauline was very sweet, checked in to see if we needed the driveway plowed after a little snow, and made sure we didn’t need anything. Was a great stay!

Relaxing, productive and fun

  • 5 of 5

My small group of quilting friends and I have been going on an annual retreat weekend every November for many years and this has by far been the most comfortable. The property is well maintained and clean. Pauline checked to make sure we had everything we needed, but left us alone to enjoy the peace and quiet of the farm. We can't wait till next year to do it again. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.

Wedding weekend a success!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the weaver house was fantastic!! My daughter's wedding weekend could not have turned out any better. We had the wedding at a different venue, but we had the rehearsal dinner at the weaver house and many people stayed at the house for the weekend. The owners could not have been any nicer and accommodating to our needs.
