The SpaceFamily style farm house. You will have a private bedroom and bathroom, off the kitchen, all to yourself. At this time we have one bedroom available with a Full-size bed for rent. I also have a cot, a mattress in the living room, and a couch available. The house has 2 full bathrooms and laundry facilities. You will have the run of the house and use of the fenced in backyard and available fenced in pastures to run your dog or go for a walk. In the spring we have Bobolinks, all year we have a visiting Peregrine Falcon, Barn owl, and other amazing species of birds. Star gazers welcome. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to visit the farm and will be able to learn about farming if willing to donate some muscle. Interaction with GuestsI would be willing to help my guests find their way but I have farm work to do. I will probably need to get some work done. On weekdays I am not able to offer a full farm style breakfast but on weekends expect a pancake or 3 with real maple syrup, and a couple of eggs. The NeighborhoodWest Groton is a rural community turning into suburbia. The Blue Spoon Farm is one of many small family farms in the neighborhood. Many of our neighbors are living on the land that was granted to their family many generations ago following the Revolutionary War. There is history here.
There are several restaurants in Groton my favorite is the Benn Conger Inn (URL HIDDEN) . Groton also has a few pizza shops, a Chinese restaurant, a bakery, an ice cream shop (in season), and a diner. We have a few flavors of Christianity in Groton too.
- Groton Old Home Days is scheduled in mid August.
- Ithaca Festival is scheduled in late May.
- The Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance is in Trumansburg in late July. Take a night here before you head over or take the night after to relax and get a shower before you get on the highway. Getting AroundYou will need a car. The farm is 4 miles from public transit see (URL HIDDEN) . I may be able to pick you up at the Ithaca or Cortland airport or bus terminal (for an extra charge) if you are meeting a friend in the area later. Just ask. Other Things to NoteWhile pets are welcome I do ask that you control your furry friends. Dogs must be leashed or kept in the house yard and away from the birds (turkeys, ducks, and chickens) when not accompanied by their human companion. Please reserve the room for you, person #1 and your dog as person #2. I do not have a pet sitting service but if you wish to leave your dog while you go to dinner I may be able to accommodate you. Please discuss it with me before as I may not be available to watch your dog due to my schedule.
