Property description

When visiting the William H. Buckley Farm, you will be staying in a newly renovated 19th century farmhouse. The property was originally an old dairy farm and has been recently converted by its new owners into Buckley Farm where they raise all-natural grass-fed beef, pork, chicken and eggs. Although centrally located - close to downtown Ballston Spa and Saratoga Springs -the Buckley Farmhouse is a unique one-of-a-kind lodging experience where visitors will be staying on a working farm and experiencing farm life at its fullest.

If you are visiting the area for a short time or for an extended stay and want to enjoy the peace and refreshment of country life, the Buckley Farmhouse provides a welcome respite, with lovely antique-appointed rooms to explore and relax in, views of the lake and our beautiful Belted Galloway cattle. Of course, if you would like a little more hands-on experience, you are welcome to tour the grounds and meet the animals.

The Buckley Farmhouse has been beautifully remodeled and offers 4 large uniquely styled bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. Upstairs, the master suite has a king size bed and a private bath, along with views of the Belties from the bay window. The second suite has a queen size bed and private bath. The other bedrooms each have a queen size bed and share a full bathroom located in the main hallway. All of the bedrooms have cable television and the house has WIFI access.

Downstairs there is a spacious living room with two fireplaces, a lovely parlor, a large dining room with seating for 10-12 and a remodeled eat--in kitchen. The gem of the house is the large back porch that looks out over our beautiful farm vistas and Ballston Lake. This house is an unforgettable memory waiting to happen!

Car: Recommended

The Buckley Farmhouse is close to Saratoga Springs and Ballston Spa which offer many tourist opportunities, including the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), the Saratoga Racetrack, the Saratoga National Park and Mineral Baths, as well as a many options for antiquing, fine dining and outdoor activities. In addition, when staying at the Buckley Farmhouse you will have the unique opportunity to enjoy life on a working farm and even participate in some farm activities, such as collecting eggs, if you are interested. This is truly a great getaway for people looking for an alternative lodging experience, families with children and those looking to learn more about the rewards and challenges of farm life.

Just 15 minutes down the road, Saratoga Springs has a vibrant downtown business district with many shops, restaurants, bars, parks, movie theaters, and museums. In the summer season, SPAC offers world-class entertainment in the form of rock and jazz concerts, the NYC Ballet, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. In August, the Saratoga Racetrack, which just celebrated its 150th year of racing, is an experience for both young and old.

If you have come to enjoy the Buckley Farmhouse in the winter months, there is still plenty to do both on the farm and off. During the winter you can enjoy the many places to ski in the area such as West Mountain, Williard Mountain and Gore Mountain. If you are looking to stay warm, the antique shops in Ballston Spa and one-of-a-kind boutiques in Saratoga are open year round.

The possibilities are endless at the Buckley Farmhouse so book now or contact us for more information!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: The Buckley Farmhouse is owned by Mark and Elizabeth Sacco and their 3 children. Owning and running a farm was a dream come true for the Sacco family and you will likely see them working and playing on the property during your stay. Whether it's collecting eggs, working on the tractor or tending the on-site farm store, there is no shortage of farm activities; but the Sacco's will be happy to show you around and answer any of your questions about life on the farm.

Why the Owner Chose Ballston:
The Buckley Farmhouse offers a farm-stay experience that no other house or inn can offer to you!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
There are many things that make the Buckley Farmhouse a unique rental opportunity.---And, although our house is beautiful, the animals are what make us the happiest. Here on the property we have 4 dogs (Red, Maria, Hawk, Sparrow) who live with and protect our nearly 1600 chickens. We have friendly free-roaming sheep and roughly 300 head of cattle. And, if you walk a bit down towards the lake, you will also meet our Gloucestershire Old Spots (pigs). From your windows or in person, our animals and our farm will enchant you and make you yearn for the 'simpler life' all the time.
