About the property

9 Bedrooms, 8.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15

Come experience the country grandeur of the Main House at Meadowburn Farm.

Set in the midst of the historic gardens created by Helena Rutherfurd Ely at the turn of the last century, this historic mansion is perfect for family get-togethers , company retreats, or special gatherings. Occupied by only two families over the past 200 years, the house retains the authentic charms of a historic colonial American manor with the European furnishings and comforts of its current owners.

The Main House and gardens are on the National Register of Historic Places and are surrounded by the fields and vitality of Meadowburn’s working farm, which consists of approximately 600-acres of meadows, woodlands, and rocky hillsides along the Wawayanda Creek. Meadowburn Road is a quiet country road making this extensive house perfect for relaxation, contemplation, serious reading and walking, and a perch from which to explore everything from New York City (55 miles away), to the Village of Warwick (10 minutes away), to the Appalachian Trail (right next door), to the Vernon ski slopes (10 minutes away).

Guests of the Main House are welcome to wander the gardens and grounds of Meadowburn Farm. Please note that garden access is not exclusive; caretakers live onsite in the carriage house and the gardens are occasionally open to tours.

For an additional fee, the gardens and select fields can be rented for predetermined times for exclusive access and events. Please inquire about pricing.

The Main House is just over 8000 square feet in living space. The ground floor has a large living room, parlor, library, dining room, butler’s pantry, kitchen, breakfast room, laundry, and a large half bathroom. The dining room and parlor share a double door and can be opened to expand the dining area for larger groups.

The second floor has the six bedrooms and bathrooms as described below, plus two bathrooms not attached to specific bedrooms, a small study and a linen closet. The third floor has three gabled bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study.

Amazing stay in a beautiful, historic home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house this weekend with our entire wedding party and had an amazing time! The house itself was massive and was exactly what we needed to sleep 19 people (all beds were filled, plus two air mattresses). Daniel and Kaylie were accommodating and helpful during the entire process and this helped everything to go smoothly. The kitchen is well equipped and there were plenty of linens in the house for all. The multiple sitting rooms on the first floor were perfect for us for getting ready in the morning, completely separately. We did our first look and took some pictures in the house and on the beautiful grounds before heading out to our wedding venue and they are stunning! I would absolutely stay in the house again, if I ever have such a large party again. Rosy and Nettles (golden retrievers that live on the property-- outdoors) were a cute and lovable welcoming squad that were beloved by all. Thank you!!
