The SpaceThis venue is EXCELLENT for large parties or events, retreats, family gatherings for holidays, class/college reunions, special surprise birthdays, engagement parties, bachelor/bachlorette celebrations etc.
5 bedrooms on 2nd floor: 1 king with master bath, 3 queen beds and 1 full with shared bathroom. 1st floor has 1 queen sofa bed and 1 queen air bed with lot's of couches too. We also have a pack and play you are welcome to use. Please see pictures for more info.
We are open to permitting weddings but it is a DIY (Do It Yourself) process. We require 1-2 porta potty rental the day of event depending on how many guests. Only close friends and family are allowed in house. Party MUST be outside or in Pole Barn. You are responsible for party tent, chairs, tables and of course food and beverages. You will also need to purchase event coverage which is easy and can be done in less than 10 min. Cost between $100-$150
I will ask for $100 upfront to meet with you at the property and discuss the details. This also helps to ensure it is a good fit for both of us. This will go towards the balance if you choose us or any future stay. That covers my time and travel.
The minimum cost for 1 night would be $5000 so please make sure you are within that budget before you ask:) That includes Pole Barn and the week before to start setting up and decorating during the day. You can arrive and check out as early as you like.
Our most important goal is to make sure everyone who stays has an awesome time and creates unforgettable memories! It is a special place. My wife and I had our wedding celebration here so I can offer some helpful tips;)

Interaction with GuestsI do my best to meet every group upon arrival or the day after depending on logistics to give a brief tour of the house and grounds. There is A LOT to see and I want to make sure you don't miss anything and all of your questions are answered!
If you require a private stay that can be arranged. Otherwise, we may be up taking care of the property. Mowing lawn, pruning and planting trees/flowers, chopping firewood, tending to the Orchard, Vegetable Garden and Goats. Maintaining trails in the woods etc.
We have a very cool neighbor named Charlie Guenst. His family settled the area over 200 years ago! He also helps check on the property and feed Goats. He usually rides a tractor over and will not knock on door or come inside but may feed goats. He loves to talk if you feel like saying hello he is very nice and has a lot of interesting stories about the history of the area. He still runs a real old fashioned lumber mill on his property in his 80's!!!

-4 person limit on pond dock at anytime. Please DO NOT use bridge and be careful:) NO walking on bridge over canal.
-Ask permission first to use boat. If the boat is used make sure to plug it or it will sink. Remove from water at end of day. Do not leave in pond overnight. 2 person limit. Use life vests I will provide.
-DO NOT touch electric fence. It can be easily turned off and I can show you. Otherwise, just stay away! Please supervise children if they want to feed or pet goats speak with me first. They LOVE vegetable, fruit scraps or grains/bread!!!!
-Please be careful to pick up trash when leaving especially cigarette butts, empty bottles or cans, runaway napkins, plates, plastic bags etc. We do have a compost pit and if you are able to do that just let me know and I can show you where that is. Or just bag it up and I will take care of it.
-FIREWOOD IS NOT FREE AND UNLIMITED. Please only use firewood we set up for you. You can buy extra firewood if you want it. $5 small stack $50 large stack. Just ask. Any dead branches or fallen trees you are welcome to burn in firepit!!!
-If hiking in the woods be careful not to touch poison Ivy. It is a vine that grows up trees and around shrubs, 3 leaves and shiny. Also, check for ticks. We are in the North East of the United States and they are in the woods. Not so much near the house or lawn:) If you are planning on hanging outside all day or night I recommend bringing bug/mosquito repellant. Just a precaution.
-Swimming in Pond is not recommended. There is no lifeguard so swim at your own risk. Be careful and USE hot tub and property at YOUR OWN RISK. (Insurance company told me I have to say that)
Please let me know if you think I missed any safety concerns or warnings and I will add them to this list!
We have Goats on the farm. They are very friendly and you are welcome to interact with and pet them. They enjoy the attention! There is an electric fence to protect them and keep them contained. Please be careful and DO NOT touch it.
