Read this review from our first guest-
"Sittin' in your wonderful barn,
or listening to you spin a yarn,
It was fate that we found your happy place:)
To 'checkout' momentarily from the rat race.
We were so grateful to stay & rest our bones,
We will be back for fall foliage &
more of those divine scones!"
The Zen Farmhouse is a tobacco-free and drug-free location so please do not to bring any tobacco or illegal drugs onto the property. Guest AccessThe guest have access to the "Great Room" and limited kitchen privileges with refrigerator and pantry space. They can walk the trail in the field and the woods, use the barbeque, the patio area and lawn. Interaction with GuestsI do host my guests as much or as little as they want. Most guests have their trips laid out but if not I can give suggestions on where a good fishing hole is or a beautiful hike or a great restaurant. Most often I have some morning interaction at breakfast as guests plan their day. The NeighborhoodThe Zen farmhouse is located in the heart of the Catskills - the home of Woodstock. There are many historic villages that date back to the early 1800's that have hardly changed. This is not your typical developed resort, this is an adventure with beautiful land, lakes, streams and sweet people that have been here for generations. Getting AroundThe Shortline bus is two block from the farm and there are cabs available, but to really enjoy the area a car is almost a necessity.
