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.

Beautiful & Peaceful Stay!

5 on September 17, 2018

I recently stayed at this lovely B&B while I was working a local craft festival. The hostess was very accommodating, attentive and cooked a delicious breakfast! Every care or concern of mine was answered swiftly. My sleep was one of the most restful I have had in years!

Absolute Gem!

5 on August 22, 2018

My husband I stayed here for four nights during my folks' 50th wedding anniversary celebration week. My folks also stayed here and have stayed here multiple times, as my dad is from the area. Judi and Steve were welcoming, accommodating, and have a beautiful home that they graciously share! We own a farm in the southwestern part of the state, so having the farm feel was an added bonus for us. If you enjoy architecture (house and barn), and appreciate the country life, you will not be disappointed. Judi's desserts and breakfasts were fantastic as well.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a joy to have you both here. We all had so much fun. It was such fun to have someone here who really understands how much work a farm is with our rescue horses

THE best B and B

This is an amazing B and B with wonderful owners who go above and beyond for their guests. We wanted to move in. This is the Cadillac of bed and breakfasts.

We felt so welcomed, and it was the perfect location. It is gorgeous country, and the house and gardens were lovely. Even better, everything was welcoming and comfortable

Innkeeper Response

Move back home with pampering parents.

Judi and Steve are wonderful caring people. Breakfast with them is an event with more fresh food than you can imagine. This is a place to get away from hectic life and enjoy the best of outdoor living. View from our bedroom overlooking the gardens below and background of hills with hirses grazing was fresh out of a magazine. About five (5) miles north of route 5, St. Johnsville, NY. Give our best to the owners,

Innkeeper Response
We are certainly blessed to have this farm and are for the horses we rescue. We do live in lush country and just love it and the history of the homestead is such a plus to share.

Lovely place

5 on June 11, 2018

This place was so delightful inside and out. Judy the owner is lovely too. I felt like I was staying with longtime friends rather than someone I just met. The food was so delicious. All freshly made. Homemade bread and jam. Beautiful spread for breakfast. Staying here overnight made my visit to area so enjoyable. I’m glad I found this place and glad I got to meet Judy and her husband!

Country Farm Life in Comfort

5 on June 10, 2018

My sister and I were visiting the area to learn more about our ancestors. Judi & Steve welcomed us into their home and we felt like members of their family. Good food and good conversation. One highlight was sitting around a fire on the patio in the evening before bringing the horses in for the night. Be sure to bring your appetite. Judi's home-made cooking is amazing. Her crusty bread -- darn, I forgot to ask for the recipe. We learned a lot about the area and only wish we had visited longer and been able to explore more of the property.

Innkeeper Response
We were so glad that you got the chance to dip into your family history and see your Grandmother's grave and all the other info you were able to obtain while here. I am so happy that you are connected to the Nellis and the Nellis Tavern. I know we will be hearing from you about the tavern and your offer to help. Take care always.

Family History Journey

5 on June 04, 2018

Judi and Steve were lovely hosts in their majestic home and farm. It was a superlative visit for my sister and I as we journeyed back in time to visit the incredible history of the mohawk river valley. Judi is an outstanding cook, and the home was clean, comfortable and convenient for our journey.

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!

Innkeeper Response
Sp g;ad you had a good time. We so much enjoyed your visit. Muffin, Mouser and Bella say hi. Bella misses the belly rubs. Lots of great things happen at Cooperstown so I hope to have you return again. Take care and thank you for the kind words.

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..
