Reviews

Great Place, great Location

The farmhouse was so wonderful, beautifully decorated and completely outfitted. It has the charm that only 100+ years can give it. The setting is gorgeous and peaceful. There's lots to do in the area, with the Culinary Institute of America as a MUST see. Don't miss Innisfree Gardens, 10 minutes from the house. Thanks again for a great vacation!”
