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.

This was a farm house that was beautiful not only in the inside but also outside.,
I will recommend this house to all my family and friends! Thank you so much!
Great break from the hustle and bustle of the city!
My family and I enjoyed our stay very much, the house was very cozy!
Overall loved the scenery and the seclusion
Property was in need of repairs before we arrived. Evidence of leaks in the kitchen and dining area. After each shower there was water leaking.
We are so sorry for any inconvenience the leak caused. Until your stay we had not been able to pinpoint the source of the leak, although we tried various repairs and thought we had found it. The leak is now fixed now and the painter came this week to paint the ceiling. We hope you will come back and visit sometime soon.
Clean, cozy, inviting!
We loved staying at the "yellow house!" Kaylie gave us a warm welcome, she was flexible with our checking as our flight was in hours before the check in time. That was a great start. The suggestions for the local areas of interést were immensely helpful. We walked the Wawayanda Trail and enjoyed soaking our feet in the cool water of the stream. We also toured the wonderful garden on the Meadowburm farm. We met and petted the animals. My girls thoroughly enjoyed meeting the pig and naming the cows. We also took the Meadow trail and it was so much fun! We found the local stream on the day before we left and that completed our stay! Loved how clean everything was. From the towels to the linen- everything was pristine! And what can I say about the staff?! Kaylie was amazing, going above and beyond what a hostess needs to do. She even gave us stamped postcards for us to send to our loved ones! What a wonderful touch! We are planning on coming back in two years and will definitively stay at the wonderful yellow house!
For those visiting the JW Headquarters - this is a perfect place to stay. Being around all that nature will definitely make you meditate on Jehovah's love and yearn for the New World that He lovingly promises.
Wish we could have stayed longer!
We were so happy with the yellow house! We had plenty of room to move around both inside and out. We were so relaxed because of the peaceful surroundings. We will definitely try to stay there again!
beautiful and well-kept
This farmhouse was fantastic and we had a great night barbecuing and hanging out.
