About Armin and Sarah Rudd
This property has been in the family since 1974 providing years of fun and memories. It came into our hands in 2010. The spring-fed pond was added in 2011-2012. The soil removed from the pond excavation provided the perfect soil for blueberries, so we started a blueberry farm operation. The pond water is for irrigating the blueberries, hence the name Blueberry Pond. The pond also added such a beautiful and peaceful character to the property that we were even more motivated to continually improve it. Along with that investment came the idea of offering it as a unique vacation rental. Now we would like others to enjoy it as we do.
Why Armin and Sarah Rudd chose Town of Boylston
This property is unique. It facilitates large family or small group gatherings or events while offering an incredibly wide range of activities on-site or nearby. From the comfortable and spacious indoors with beautiful country views, to the large deck overlooking the ever-changing beauty of moving water or still reflections, to paddling or swimming in the pond, to adventuring along the trails around the 140 acres of field, woods, and brooks, everyone can find something they love to do. With abundant lake-effect snow unique to the area, winter brings a whole new level of outdoor activity opportunity for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. No need to trailer your Snowmobiles or ATV’s to parking lots. Snowmobile and ATV groups ride their machines on the shoulder of Van Auken Rd past our driveway all the time to access the trails. The Pulaski-Boylston C5A Corridor Snowmobile Trail is less than a mile straight north of our property. For downhill skiing or tubing areas: Dry Hill, Watertown, NY, 33 min, 30 mi Maple Ridge, Lowville, NY, 52 min, 43 mi Snow Ridge Ski Resort, Turin, NY, 59 min, 51 mi Woods Valley Ski Area, Westernville, NY, 1 hour
