Heritage Meadows Farm B & B

510 County Highway 140 , St. Johnsville, NY 13452 USA (Show map)


Spend a night in the country; our restored 1855 Greek Revival Farmhouse is located on 60 acres in the heart of "farm first country", shared with Amish neighbors. We grow most of our vegetables, fruits and eggs then can, freeze and preserve everything possible; making our "old fashioned" farm country breakfast and desserts fresh in any season. We also make our own breads and jams and jellies which are served daily. A desert and beverage are also served each evening.

Treated like royalty!

5 on May 21, 2018

Since it was the weekend of the big royal wedding, this seemed like a good title for our review. Judi and Steve were the consummate hosts and we enjoyed everything about their place. We were treated to scrumptious homemade desserts each night we came back from our days exploring. Their dog and cats are absolutely adorable and provided endless entertainment for my pet loving husband. We plan to come back on our next visit to Cooperstown!

Stayed with Judi and Steve while visiting family. We will definitely be going back! We were made so welcome.

We loved our stay with Steve and Judi. The food was delicious, the room was beautiful. The bed is very comfortable. The hosts treated us like old friends. We will be regulars with them!

THE best hospitality!

Steve and Judi are just such welcoming and warm hosts to those of us traveling. It is a delight to be with them. Judi always has a special dessert for when we arrive, and follows up with a huge homemade country breakfast in the morning. Her bread/toast is THE best with homemade jams! Steve fills us in on the what's going on in that local farming area. They are blessed to have good Amish folks as friends. Either bedroom is very comfortable with crisp cotton sheets! So good to sleep in! We are very thankful for the Mihals opening their farmhouse to weary travelers!

Favorite B&B!

5 on October 07, 2017

We have stayed at Heritage Meadows Farm B&B numerous times. Steve and Judi have become 'family' to us. Their hospitality is the best! Judi always has a special dessert waiting for her guests. That plus the conversation around the table makes it very welcoming and special. We get a good night's rest, and no rush for breakfast. The breakfast is a full country meal, again with special conversations around the table. We are so thankful that Steve and Judi have opened their home to travelers!

The Best of Country Life

5 on October 05, 2017

This is a wonderful treat in the country. I had the deepest rest I've had in a very long time. The food was out of this world special. The owners use as much for their meals as they can from their own property. The jams, peaches and bread were all homemade. I enjoyed sitting down and having breakfast with the owners. That was a different experience for us and I loved it. Even though they have 2 rooms available, they will not rent out the other room to someone else unless it is booked that way (Ex: family & friends) So, you do NOT have to share a bathroom. Finding the place can be challenging since a regular GPS can not find the address. Use google maps when you get closer as the best resource. It will take you right to it.

Wow Great Visit

A visit is what it felt like staying with Judi and Steve. All I can say is we weren't there long enough. Maybe we'll see you both again in July around Iron Man Lake Placid time. Very clean, decorated like Country Living Magazine and the food was scrumptious.

Country Living!

I have to start off with the home cooking! Wow! Judi is the hostess with the mostest....homemade everything. We started our visit with homemade cherry pie..delicious and the smell of homemade bread for breakfast the next day! Our first breakfast was like no other. The freshness of the eggs, sausage, fruit, jelly..I could go on and on. Definitely reminded me of the days visiting my aunt upstate. Brings you back in time when things were done right. Home is beautiful and clean. The farm is beautiful! Judith and Steve are great hosts. Very comfortable and feels like home. I can't end this without mentioning the homemade blueberry pancakes! Amazing! I had to have two! Thanks for taking care of my mom and I. We had a great stay.

Unprecedented Service and Wonderful Hosts

5 on August 19, 2017

As a first stay at a Bed and Breakfast, my wife and I were pleasantly surprised by how well we were taken care of. It wasn't long before we felt like we were another member of the household (we think that their shih-tzu also felt the same way) and leaving was sad because it felt like finally having to leave grandma's house after a family reunion. Judi is an excellent cook and is always finding ways to improve what is already delicious breakfasts. If you are a history buff, Judi has a vast store of knowledge about the local history and will point you to some fun sites! We cannot say enough about how good this experience was for us, and we highly recommend anyone to go!

Everything was top class what you can expect from a village house. The location was perfect for road trip travelers. Away from the civilization but everything quiet and picturesque. Like living in a family. Host was nice and met us with lemon pudding . The breakfast was excellent and room tidy and clean. Great for amateurs of Colonial style houses. Be ready to meet horses and a cute dog . Would highly recommend. Max and Maritza

About the innkeepers

We have spent the last 12 years restoring the farmhouse and furnishing it with antiques and other possibilities of the past. Most of the house is open to our guests for their enjoyment. We have also added a picnic area along the creek and will gladly furnish you with a picnic lunch for an additional fee. There is lots of room for long walks and beautiful views or snowshoeing in the winter..
