"What a fantastic escape. We loved the farm cottage; spacious, light and had every amenity that made our stay a pleasure. The kids loved the chickens, the horses and watching Don “tedding” the hay with his draft horses. The pool was pristine and set perfectly for appreciating the beautiful views.

Thank you for your guidance on the best spot to explore some of the magnificent Ithaca gorges.

Walking around your block I was able to breathe deep and be inspired by the wildflowers, the rushing streams and the beauty of farm country.

You two are not only living the dream but are able to educate your guests on how it is possible to help save the environment, stay in shape and make a difference in your community.

Best of luck for a prosperous harvest,"

Helene, Peter, Ross and Elise.
