About the property

Four Bedroom Family Friendly Getaway

I bought this treasure in May and have been renovating and fixing it throughout-Planned to be ready by August, and we are! It's an 1880s Farm house with a rich past. I plan to make its future even brighter. Off season pricing reflects the number of bedrooms used: 0-2 is $200, 3 is $300 and 4 is $400 per night with discounts for weekly ($2100). Summer rates are $400 per night. The fourth bedroom is accessed through another bedroom, so best for kids or as a study. There is 1.3 acres of woods, lawns, a creek surrounded by hillside views and a cute little white church across the street. Coates is a quiet country road with very little traffic, just the locals. Kitchen is brand new and a delight to work in, or eat at the breakfast bar. Dining easily seats 8. The sage bedroom has its own porch with a little Victorian love seat for early morning coffee. Up stair has a huge hall with a rocker a very large bedroom with another easy chair and a newly tiled bathroom. Come for a weekend or stay the week as the house is near wineries and breweries, and only one mile from the Keuka Park public beach, The State Park and boat launch, and a few miles from sleepy Branchport. Come get away from it all.

About The Owner

I grew up on Keuka Lake in the 50s and 60s. Taught outside Boston in the 70s, then married and moved to Tucson with my professor husband Bill Filippone for 15 years where we raised Matt and Casey. When Bill died in 93, I moved with the boys to Washington DC for 9 years before moving back to the lake. Remarried Rob Schwarting in 2012 and built our beautiful lake house. We started doing Air BnB in 2015 and absolutely love hosting and getting visitors excited about the area and all there is to do and be a part of. The farmhouse project is new and I so fell in love with the house. It's been a long time since I've rented hostless, so I'll do a modified and just orient people with literature and maps.

The Owner purchased this house in 2017

We had a lovely time at this beautiful farm house! Carol was very kind, helpful and attentive to any needs we had as well.The house was the perfect getaway and a peaceful place to stay for us this summer. We loved the porches and the kitchen was beautiful. This place fit our family perfectly. We will definitely stay again if we have the chance!

Perfect location. Our son got married 2 miles down the road at Crispin Hill. This was a great, Convenient location for our pre and post wedding stay. Enough room for everyone, but so much more....home with character, comfort and memories to cherish. Would definitely return, and we only live 30 miles Away! Carol has a gem here.

Absolutely surprising!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little leary of the term 'charming farmhouse' as I knew that could mean anything....but wow!...what a surprise to find a gorgeous, upscale, renovated cool home! The beds were fantastic, everything was super clean and well maintained. Location worked so well for us being so close to Keuka Lake and Keuka College. This is just a great property and Carol was so helpful in giving us some great spots to check out in addition to the ones we already knew about. I highly recommend this place for an intimate getaway OR a group excursion. Tons of room, light and very good setting!! LOVED it!!

Charming, spacious, private yet so close to everyt

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a short weekend to enjoy the wineries, wrapped around a visit to our daughter away at college. But the house was such a wonderful surprise; four large bedroom, all newly renovated and charmingly decorated. Everything was convenient and fully supplied. We will be back in the winter for another visit.
