Come stay at Meadowburn Farm in a most charming Yellow House! Located in the heart of 590 acres of preserved farmland just 55 miles from New York City, Meadowburn’s Yellow House is the perfect retreat into pastoral countryside. It has 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people, 1.5 baths, a kitchen, dining room and living room. The view from the dining room and back patio has been declared the most spectacular view on the farm.
Please read our full description so you know exactly what to expect.
The Yellow House:
The house is approximately 1000 sq. ft., and has been recently updated. The first floor features a kitchen, dining room, living room, half bath, and bedroom with a double bed. The second floor includes a full bath and two bedrooms, one with two twin beds, and one with a queen bed. The back patio basks in light from morning until dusk.
The Yellow House is situated at the edge of Meadowburn’s active farmstead. You might see cows grazing and perhaps a tractor pulling a cart of hay on a weekday. You will hear chickens clucking, ducks quaking, and birds chirping. On a summer eve you will see fireflies dancing about and bright stars in the sky. The large backyard overlooks barns and rolling meadows, with views of Wawayanda State Park in the distance. Please note that this is not a good place for someone who does not appreciate seeing and hearing the daily activity of a working farm.
The house is equipped with Wi-Fi, direct TV, and has a gas grill, washer/dryer, dishwasher, central heat and A/C window units. Being a farm house with the electric service coming through the woods, we have been known to occasionally have power outages. Should this occur you will be reimbursed for the period the power is out. Candles, battery lights and extra blankets are provided.
Meadowburn Farm is located just 55 miles outside of New York City at the southern tip of the Hudson Valley between Warwick, NY, and Vernon, NJ. The Yellow House sits at the edge of Meadowburn’s central dairy farmstead, within 590 acres of farm and woodlands.
Across the road from the Yellow House are the historic gardens of Helena Rutherfurd Ely, which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The gardens can be toured with prior arrangement.
The Wawayanda Creek winds though the property, and is a great place to catch a trout or two. There are vast meadows, woods, and country roads to walk.
