About the property

Hobbit Hollow House is a turn of the nineteenth century Colonial Revival farmhouse located in beautiful Skaneateles, NY, the Gateway to the Finger Lakes. Our property offers spectacular views of our own White Birch Vineyards and Skaneateles Lake, known worldwide for its unspoiled beauty. In addition to vineyard and lake views, our guest rooms overlook colorful meadows, rolling hills and Hobbit Hollow Farm's beautiful barn and horse stables.

Hobbit Hollow House features six elegant and comfortable guest rooms, each uniquely appointed with well-crafted furniture and amenities that will make your stay more enjoyable, such as gas fireplaces, private porches and whirlpool tubs. Luxurious beds and linens will ensure a wonderful night's sleep for every guest.

Hobbit Hollow House boasts a fully equipped kitchen and elegant dining room allowing any aspiring chefs in your group to prepare exquisite meals from Finger Lakes sourced ingredients. If cooking isn’t exactly your thing, we can help make arrangements with one of the talented local chefs to prepare unique and delicious meals for your guests in the home. Or if going out on the town is more your speed, the Village of Skaneateles, only a few minutes’ drive from your front door, boasts a selection of many of the Upstate New York’s most acclaimed restaurants .

No matter the season, Hobbit Hollow House beckons you to explore its beauty. Choose from countless fun and exciting activities our area has to offer. Spend a leisurely day touring nearby wineries, including White Birch Vineyards’ own Tasting Room in the heart of Skaneateles, as well as many other local distilleries and breweries. Enjoy boat tours and dinner cruises on Skaneateles Lake, and visits to local farm stands and markets. Avid or recreational hikers will find a wide range of hiking trail systems only a short drive away, including local state forest trails, Ithaca’s amazing gorges and Letchworth State Park – the Grand Canyon of the East. Or perhaps you want to experience the spectacular annual fall foliage or downhill skiing, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing when the beautiful Central New York landscape is laden with snow.

For days when you prefer to stay at your cozy home away from home, our spacious living areas provide ample space to hang out and enjoy a quiet day of games and reading and our large estate offers opportunities to enjoy walks, have picnics, and otherwise enjoy nature with your family and friends. After exploring everything the Finger Lakes has to offer during the day, spend your evenings with a glass of White Birch Vineyards wine, relaxing on the comfortably appointed porches overlooking Skaneateles Lake as the sun goes down and the crickets and fireflies come out.

Having a memorable event? Hobbit Hollow House is the perfect location for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, vow renewal, birthday celebration, baby shower, cocktail party or corporate gathering. Our beautiful lawns and rolling meadow backdrops make for a gorgeous venue for your perfect outdoor event.

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Hobbit Hollow is wonderful - the property/setting, the view, the house itself, the decor. We have stayed every December since 1998 - it provides a much needed escape from the hustle and bustle of working in NYC, and gets us in the Christmas spirit. The renovation work kept much of the interiors the same, thankfully! A perfect weekend, and we are already looking forward to returning next year!

Wedding weekend Wonder!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hobbit Hollow was wonderful! This home provided a wonderful refuge for my family for the weekend of my son's wedding. The home and grounds are meticulously maintained. My grandkids loved seeing the horses and other farm animals.

We would definitely spend time here again. We recommend Hobbit Hollow without reservation.
