Property description

A perfect Getaway Rental In Upstate New York's Lush Dairy Country

Handmade house on 70 acre former dairy farm. Halfway between Cobleskill and Cooperstown. Very secluded, very peaceful, with 2 ponds, babbling brooks, woods and apple orchards and wild heron on the wetlands. This is one of the most relaxing, rustic spots you can imagine. Come and hike the land, cook great meals, or have a great nap in a rocking chair by the fire! Private and quiet, yet near to many wonderful things to do like Howe Caverns, Cooperstown, Glimmerglass Opera, antiquing, visiting Organic farms, Museums, The Baseball Hall of Fame, The Adirondacks, and on and on.

The farm is surrounded by state land, so Fall Foliage is amazing. And apple picking is a perfect afternoon activity. Upstate NY is amazing in the fall- crisp, chiseled days and brisk, clear nights. Enjoy our fire pit on the back patio under the stars.
Swimming in the spring-fed ponds in summer is so refreshing. The fishing in our ponds is wonderful. Our land glows at night with fireflies all July, and August brings nearby festivals, carnivals, and fairs all over the area.
The driveway is plowed in the winter for easy access, and the sledding and snowmobiling are fantastic. The woodstove is the heat source and heats the whole house beautifully and easily. And there is plenty of wood to keep it cozy all day and all night.
And the spring is a perfect time to come up- the brooks are babbling with melted snow, the acreage is turning green and starting to bloom, and the wild turkey, deer and heron abound!

The house has great amenities- Wood burning stove, dishwasher, microwave, double oven, well stocked kitchen with all hand appliances, wrap around porch, deep tub, satellite TV, DVD player and movie library, WIFI DSL line, CD player, King bed in sleeping loft,washing machine, futon, books and toys, linens and towels.

House comfortably sleeps 4-6 people. It is perfect for a family, a group of friends, or as a solo getaway from it all. The house is very kid-friendly, and well stocked with toys. Dogs are allowed with an extra deposit.

Year round rentals available. Weekend rate $275- 2 nights, 3 nights- $375, 4 nights- $450, 5 nights- $550. Weekly rate- $770. Monthly and Season rates can be discussed. Popular Holiday weekends and weeks (Christmas, New Year's, July 4th, Valentine's day, Labor Day, Memorial Day) are slightly higher in price. Fully refundable Deposit required for each rental.


The farm is 3 hours from New York City, 45 minutes from Albany, 25 minutes to Cooperstown, and 20 minutes to Cobleskill.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We bought this beautiful acreage years ago, as a respite from city life. There was no house on the property, it had been torn down ages before. And we fulfilled a dream of hand-building a home for ourselves, and family, and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Dorloo:
We love upstate NY for it's gorgeous rolling hills, and pastural openness.We bought this exact property for the acreage, the secluded oasis, the views, the ability to build and create. And we wanted to lovingly restore the 125 year old barns.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Seclusion. The Quietest place we know. The land is ripe, the views elating, The privacy amazing. The ponds for swimming, the orchards for picking, the sky for it's awe inspiring vastness Watching storms roll in over the mountains.
