Bed and Breakfast

The Joy of a Farm with the Luxuries of a Fine Hotel

Your stay with us is bound to be a relaxing and enriching vacation to remember. Located in a quiet Catskill valley, the beauty and tranquility of our surroundings are second to none. Hear the peaceful waters of East Handsome Brook which flow directly behind our home. Each of our rooms has a view of the brook, and you will sleep more soundly than you have in years. There are large, comfy chairs by the fire to indulge in once you have made your reading selection from our library — equipped with thousands of books that are waiting for you to explore. With WiFi throughout the farm, you also have the freedom to find a special spot and use your laptop to stay connected.

Our guests are invited to enjoy a delicious breakfast which features local produce, home baked breads and pastries, and cooked-to-order eggs. Amenities include a hot-tub on the back deck, 70 inch big-screen TV with satellite, DVD player and DVD library, use of the custom kitchen, theology and social sciences library, board games, Nintendo Wii with 3 consoles, fishing holes, and of course all of the outdoor activities associated with the farm-stay.

With 100s of acres to hike, snowshoe, or cross-country ski, Handsome Brook Farm has something for everyone! Take a walk on Blueberry Hill – our 20 acre blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry orchard – or get the Farm Experience by helping feed the farm animals, plant and tend the berries, pick fresh fruit and vegetables (in season), and help with routine farm activities.

There are three guest rooms, all newly renovated in 2009. Each room is uniquely appointed and provides its own environment for you to relax and enjoy. We have a few policies that are important: Pet policy: Although we do not offer pet accommodations, there is an excellent kennel only ½ mile away. We would be happy to provide a reference for you. Cancellations: A 50% non-refundable deposit required; 100% due if cancelled 24 hours or less before stay.
