  • Perfect country birthday weekend

    "I can't say enough good things about our stay at Rufflands (the name of the farm). We came up for one weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday and had an amazing time. The owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with and booking was easy. The house was a beautiful blend of old and new. In the living room, there is a dirt wall set as a tribute to the original farmhouse. Yet in the master bathroom a massive double shower with rain shower heads overlooks the grounds outside and SiriusXM can be played in any or all rooms of the house. You can feed goats by hand, light a fire in the largest outdoor fire pit I have ever seen, chill out on the screened in porch, or expore the nearby towns of Rhinebeck or Red Hook. All in all, we had a spectacular time and can't wait to return. It is a great gathering place for family and friends. My wife described it as the best birthday ever. Thank you Amanda and Rufflands!"

  • SuperBowl Weekend....

    "The rental manager was wonderful to work with, very prompt to answer any questions we had in advance to our stay. He left us a bottle of wine as a "welcome" gift! The house is very spacious so 5 adults were able to spread out. The living room is the real shining star of the house (including a wet bar with extra fridge....so convenient for those Super Bowl beverages!)."

  • If You're Going to Bard College

    "We loved our stay at this property! The woodsy setting and natural feel of the home's appointments really made it for us. There was plenty of room for everyone and the owner was a delight to work with. The only drawback was the showers - we couldn't figure out the hot/cold water scheme. Otherwise, a wonderful place to stay!"

  • Unbelievable Wedding Weekend

    "Our wedding was quite the best weekend of my life. That being said, it took an army of support to make our dreams come true. The CURRENT staff (Bob, Dave, and company) were wonderful. We had worked with a previous property manager for the house and our experience with her was a bit of a nightmare. Bob went above and beyond to rectify the issues that were a result of this person’s mistakes. Bob and Dave made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. For example, the clothes dryer was broken, and within an hour of calling Bob they had replaced the dryer with a new unit. Bob and Dave made themselves available to our guests 24 hours a day and popped in every now and then to check on us. Like ninjas, they would check the pool temperature, take out garbage, spot clean the grounds - all without us ever knowing. I firmly believe, with these folks in place, this venue will succeed in hosting many more beautiful weddings. A few important notes about the house; the water is well water. This means it is treated in a specific way and the water has a sulphuric smell. This is not abnormal for this type of system, but can be a shock if you are not expecting it. YOU will not come out of the shower smelling of sulphur, but the bathroom will. Get yourself some incense or scented candles. I promise you will want them. The house is gorgeous but RUSTIC. If you are looking for a ultra modern, white glove mansion with sleek amenities, this house is not for you. For us all of the charm outweighed any need for glossy accouterments. The windows are worn, the cobblestones a tad loose, the pavilion a little leaky (it also rained really HARD on our wedding day). We had an easy to please, easy going crowd so none of this mattered to us - if you are into the beauty of vintage, shabby chic, rustic country venues this is the place for you. You will need to bring in EVERYTHING for your wedding (again not abnormal). This may change as SOH becomes more popular but at the time of our wedding it was truly a DIY venue. They require you rent a toilet trailer, you will need to bring in catering, and ALL rentals, flowers, etc. You will probably want a golf cart to transport guests to and fro and there is no formal ‘parking’ or ‘valet’ - another reason for a golf cart. But above all else, every single person at SOH was kind, helpful, and supportive. Our wedding day was extraordinary and we felt like we were in great hands the entire time."
