What makes this farmhouse unique

You will be able to enjoy the beautiful area up there, and pursue a lot of different entertainment. It is ten minutes from Belleayre Ski Center, which has a great summer music program. There are a lot of great swimming holes and creeks to swim in, and Pine Hill Lake is ten minutes from my house. The nearest town is Phoenicia, which has several really nice restaurants and bars, and a theatre and library. Hunter mountain and Woodstock are twenty minutes away as well.

Comfortable home perfect for holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to bring our family together for Christmas and New Years that would feel like home, and Marty’s beautiful farmhouse fit the bill perfectly. It felt like home and we even managed to create our traditional holiday meals in the well furnished kitchen and dining room. It was a wonderful escape in a beautiful location. We were all sad to leave and would definitely return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kerali! You are most welcome to come back any time! I love my kitchen, too - have to say. I'm very proud of the house, as I renovated it from kind of a wreck. It was built in 1878. I do like to share it with people - especially families like yours who appreciate and enjoy it.

Fantastic house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Marty's Farmhouse for 3 nights, 10 people total. The place has everything you need, and with 4 beds and 2 pullout couches, we were very comfortable. We hung out on the wraparound porch often, reading and relaxing and the kids loved the rope swing. We set up ladderball in the yard, and enjoyed the country air. A perfect location to get to anywhere in the region. If you are looking for a place, stop right now and stay at Marty's!! - Tom in Erie, Pa.

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

recently stayed at Marty's place - just perfect! like previous reviews, Marty's place truly feels like home! i felt at ease from the moment i stepped through the door. though i made use only of the master bedroom, the other two bedrooms are thoughtfully designed. and for those who wish to "tinkle the ivory, " there is a functioning piano! the A/C worked fine, there are tv's in every room that feature cable/netflix, and Marty was there when i needed her to field any/all questions. lots of camping around the area. i personally stayed in-house most of the time, enjoying the charm of the house. totally recommend this place! i look forward to making future trips here!
