The fully renovated 200 year old farm house easily accommodates up to the 8 person limit. Wonderful restaurants are close by or cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Colgate University is less than 30 minutes away. Cooperstown, around 45 minutes away, finds you at the Baseball Hall of Fame or at the summer opera at Glimmerglass. The house is located on a working, certified organic, farm. Come Spring gather eggs from the chicken coop each morning or take a walk among the chickens, sheep and cows.

The space

We are so very pleased you are considering staying at our 1811 Farm House. The original parts this house were built when the US was only 35 years old. Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were alive then and Abraham Lincoln was 2 years old when the house was finished!

During one of the earlier renovations a false floor was discovered in the attic that contained slave manacles. This house was part of the Underground Railroad that operated in this area between 1830 to 1860 and helped approximately 3000 slaves find their way to freedom in Canada.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to walk the barns and fields but are asked to check with the Hosts to make sure their are no big activities planned for that day.

Interaction with guests

The farm is over 200 acres and we live in another house on the property that is about 1/3 of a mile away so we are available if needed.

A truly unique place! Ed and Rose were extraordinary hosts and went out of their way to make my Birthday weekend very special!!! If you are looking for something different "to get away for a peaceful time to simply shed all the electronics and distraction, then book this place." Our kids love the farm house, chickens, egg hunting and Bella the watch dog. All of us enjoyed the ATV rides through the fields. Beautiful views !!!. We will go back in fall for watching colors. House was spacious with all amenities for three families with kids. There is a grill outside for BBQ. Also there is a nice Italian restaurant 7 minutes away that you should check out.

Dear Priya, Thank you for the very kind words. They are truly appreciated considering the inconvenience you faced in the house. That problem has gotten a little bigger but they will start the final repair work tomorrow (fingers crossed). Pease let us know when you want to come back so I can block out the date. The sheep arrive in early September, we will still have the layers and the meat birds will be in the fields. With kind regards, Ed

Staying at this beautiful farmhouse was an amazing experience. The house itself sits in a gorgeous rolling hillside, is perfectly decorated and was easily large enough to accommodate our group of 6 with room to spare. Edmund was a fantastic host, available both before and during our stay. He had an outdoor grill set up for our use and gave us fresh eggs from his working farm for free! Sitting in a ring of Adirondack chairs in the yard beneath a sky full of stars is an experience we will never forget.

We absolutely loved our stay at Sova Farms. From the wonderful beds to the chicken pen your farm over reached our expectations. Instead of heading to some of the Graduation events for our daughter, we all opted to stay at the farm and completely relax with our whole family. The pond with salamanders and frogs, the walk up the hill to the chickens, the adorable (and very clean) house, all added up to a wonderful experience. We are picky about good bedding and your beds were above par! The kitchen was well stocked and we were even able to cook a spectacular, and complicated, garlic tart that everyone loved! You are wonderful hosts, friendly and accommodating. Thanks for making our Daughter's graduation trip a wonderful experience for all of us! Kim and Spencer and all of us.

This is a home that is a testament to the craftmanship of yesteryear. The original details of the home remain as they were many years ago, yet the space is warm and inviting and meets the needs of today's guests. This is a very special place.
