Property description

Serenity… Tranquility… Peace… slow down the pace and enjoy the canvas surrounding you.
What do you need? A Romantic getaway?... Family bonding time?... Painter’s paradise?... Writer’s retreat?... Spiritual or Youth Group retreat?... Large family reunion spot?... Home-Base camp for Youth baseball Tournaments at All-Star village and Dreams Park?

Our 'slice of Paradise' will accommodate all ages and interests!

Perfect location for Outdoor sporting adventure or Motorcycle touring “base camp”!
Midpoint between road trip destinations such as the nearby Finger Lakes Region, Syracuse, Niagara Falls, and Canada!
Convenient Home base for day trips to Cooperstown, Howe Caverns, local car shows, county fairs, state parks, antiquing, canoeing/kayaking the nearby Susquehanna River (General Clinton Regatta,) or fishing the nearby rivers & lakes.
Whether you are a couple, family of four, a large group, or have multiple grandkids with you, there is plenty of room to spread out!

This magnificent custom-built log home on 16 private acres of open meadow and woodland boasts a breathtaking view of the mountains and patchwork of distant farms that will steal your heart away.
Enjoy a commanding panoramic view just beyond our private pond from the outdoor deck, or indoors from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the spacious cathedral-style living room or choose the breezy solarium.
Let your inner child out while frolicking with the kids in/on the pond that’s big enough for a row boat, kayaks, or tubes. Swim off the dock and catch frogs between the cattails.
Set up your art easel or just relax on the two large outdoor decks.
Breathe in the crisp mountain air while taking a casual stroll around our beautiful meadows.Bird watch, or hike in the woods.

Simply curl up with a book or a fun family game beside the enchanting soapstone wood-burning stove. Challenge your family to a ping-pong tournament on our championship quality table or a game of darts.
Treat the kids to ice cream and an old fashioned double-feature movie at one of the last remaining drive-in movies in the country! Local shops, farmer's market, supermarket, and chain department store are convenient for groceries or forgotten supplies. Nearby restaurants, pubs, or diner are great for nights you aren't up for cooking in our well-equipped kitchen or barbecuing on the grill.
Bring your S'More-making kit for those tranquil nights stargazing at the Milky Way around the campfire ring. Pop up some tents for the grandkids to ‘rough it.’ You'll be serenaded by the crickets and bullfrogs, and guaranteed to sleep like a baby! You'll awaken to the melodic birds with a renewed appreciation for your family, your blessings, and creation. Deer grazing on the hill and wild turkeys crossing the meadow reward the early riser! It's a photographer's must!
Stay active or simply relax and do nothing. Time stands still and the rest of the world seems worlds away. So come make our home yours for a short stay or a long vacation.
