The Gifford is a cheery, lovely home with both breathtaking mountain and serene pastoral views. It is located on 3 acres in the town of Cornwallville, a peaceful corner of the Catskills in beautiful upstate New York. The first floor of this two-story Cape Cod has a bright and airy country eat-in kitchen, complete with cooking and serving supplies. The family room provides games and a television with a selection of DVDs for your entertainment. The glass-doored woodstove in the living room provides added warmth for those chilly winter evenings, while the attached deck offers a wonderful view of our Catskill sunsets (complete with cows or horses). The master bedroom has a queen bed and cozy writing nook. The full bathroom is also located downstairs, as is a laundry. The upstairs has three bedrooms; one has a queen bed, another has a full, and the children’s room has one bunk bed and two twin beds.
We include a complimentary take-home breakfast gift basket with your stay!
On the Farm
Winter is a magical season here; it is a wonderland of snow-covered, majestic mountains where adventure awaits you. The spacious backyard has plenty of room for playing in the snow and a stone fire pit to enjoy s’mores or roasting hot dogs. There is a picnic table and chairs to relax on while taking in the star studded sky undisturbed by city lights. Bring your own gear or rent locally to enjoy access to our 300-acre farm to snowshoe or sled. In fact, it’s just a moment’s walk to the main farmhouse where we live and the hub of Hull-O Farms, which of course you’re welcome to explore and enjoy to your heart’s content. During your stay, you’ll be welcome to participate in any activities or ‘chores’ happening while you’re here, such as feeding the animals. You may be able to romp with the rabbits, cuddle the kittens, take a gander with the goats, ponder the pigs, sit with the sheep, or canoodle the cows.+ More
