Set on over 5.25 ACRES, our pre-civil war farmhouse is less than an hour from Manhattan. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to gaze at countless stars in the darkened night sky. Privacy inside & out. Did we mention we are PET-FRIENDLY?

There is plenty of space to relax in style with your friends & family for the holidays or a getaway. Events & small weddings are allowed with prior approval (see section on events). We welcome all people. #LGBTQ-Friendly.

2. ABOUT THE HOME: Inside our farmhouse mansion, you will enjoy old & new. The home features an intimate living room with original hand-carved moldings & wide-board floors, a formal dining room with plenty of seating as well as a large gatherings room perfect for a small wedding/party with an attached sunroom & wrap-around balconies. Our living room has a 100 year old BABY GRAND PIANO. Feel free to relax & play some music.

There are THREE FIREPLACES including a WOOD BURNING STOVE for winter ambiance & extra warmth. Great place to get cozy with friends & a bottle of wine.

Our farmhouse has FOUR BALCONIES & TWO ENCLOSED PORCHES. Great for enjoying your early morning coffee while watching the sunrise or for an evening cup of tea while watching the sunsets.

Like to COOK?, Orchard Hill is the perfect place to dine with your friends. Our kitchen is FULLY STOCKED with cookware, utensils, linens, towels, spices & condiments for your use, though you are welcome to bring your own. Love to BBQ? We have two propane GRILLS. Enjoy BBQing at the 45'x25' pool, it is one of our favorite things to do in the summer. If you like to BBQ in the winter, do not fear! We have a grill close to the house.

3: BEDROOMS: Our 3-story home can SLEEP up to 25 adults. There are 7 very comfortable bedrooms with plush beds & unique sleep-enhancing toppers. 5 full bathrooms. Our sunkissed room converts to an 8th bedroom. The first-floor bedroom is WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE with a wheelchair-accessible bathroom & roll-in shower. This area of the home is perfect for older relatives who may not be able to climb one of our four staircases leading to the bedrooms on the second & third floors. Guests love our third-floor bedrooms.

4. THE GROUNDS: Our POOL is fenced & VERY PRIVATE: located in the back of the house: a pool house with games & pool toys. Here, you will also find our YEAR ROUND HOT TUB. Next to the pool area, we have a small ORCHARD of apple, pear, cherry & walnut trees. When in season, we invite you to feast on whatever your heart desires. Simply walk over to the apple orchard & help yourself. At the far rear of the backyard, is our FIRE PIT. The seating was built with repurposed treated wood (yes, this wood is from the 1800s).

The front of the house also has a lot to offer. You will enjoy walking down the steps of the front of the house to sit by our STONE FOUNTAIN (fountain colors change at night). The bluestone steps are a theme throughout the property.

5. PERKS FOR PARENTS: Our home is perfect for a large family, family reunions, or a trip with grandparents. Our family room opens into a small patio area, which is also connected to the front entrance, in case anyone has a hard time with steps! The kitchen, dining room, living room & our two covered decks are also wheelchair accessible so no one has to feel left out.

Another great feature is that our house is so large & there is plenty of privacy for parents. Our dormitory-style bedroom is the perfect room for siblings, cousins, or friends. We have 6 other more private bedrooms for parents who would like some space from the children. Our entertainment room can be set up for arts & crafts or games, just let us know & we would be happy to accommodate you & your family no matter what your needs are.
