IRRESISTABLE BREAKFASTS

Our beautiful farm-to-table breakfast from the freshest seasonal, local, natural, and organic ingredients is served at 8 o'clock.

Breakfast is served on pretty antique English transfer-ware, depicting historic New York tall ship scenes and consists of decadent chocolate éclairs, savory, fresh breakfast breads, crêpes, french toast, pancakes, fruit tarts, crème brûlée, quiche, cinnamon buns, Monte Cristo, streusel, coffee cake, scones, or another pastry, along with fresh fruit, farm-fresh eggs, and breakfast meats.

Guests can opt for an earlier start with fresh home-roasted organic coffee, tea, or espresso, homemade granola and yogurt or hot oatmeal and toppings, fresh baked bread and homemade fruit preserves, eggs made-to-order, and/or homemade pastries, and fruit (available from 7am upon request). What a start to a day of relaxation and adventure in the Adirondacks!

We serve afternoon tea at 4pm by request, otherwise we'll be farming until you arrive as our summer workload (innkeeping, maintenance, improvements, production, animal husbandry, and horse & rider training) fills the space from 11am-4pm all too quickly.

Please arrange early check-in upon booking, or via email prior to your arrival.

Our History

Our historic victorian farmhouse has been an Inn off-and-on since its construction in 1870.

The Inn became the heart of a busy family farm again, with our purchase in 2017. We work tirelessly to rehabilitate our new-to-us, but far from modern, historic structures and to try to integrate them into our vision of a modern farm. We hope to make the changes needed for a new generation of conscientious family farmers, without sacrificing nostalgia.

Since coming to the farm we've replaced hundreds of slates, replaced bad flashing and valleys with hundreds of pounds of fresh copper, rebuilt six huge dormers, replaced exterior siding and trim, doors, windows, and several huge beams, and gotten started on new infrastructure... whenever there's a break in our usual farming routine.

But don't worry, we always do any noisy or disruptive work while guests are out.

Experience the Lake Champlain Region

Our guests spend their day enjoying the Lake Champlain Region’s crisp, fresh air and natural beauty: natural wonders, historic sites, and various outdoor activities, such as Fort Ticonderoga, Fort St. Frederick, Lake George's eastern hiking trails and beaches, kayak rentals, biking, or on-farm horseback riding.

We offer on-farm hiking, guests with an adventurous spirit hike across our vast farmland and wilderness to see one of the most beautiful views in the region. And, why not? We're just a short drive to the eastern beaches of Lake George to cool off afterward!

There are countless art and history museums or galleries to explore in hot or rainy weather.

Share in the Misadventure

We maintain fb journals complete with loads of additional photos and tales of misadventure for those who appreciate small family operations, country life, self-sufficiency, historic barns, and all things agrarian despite any partway started green/sustainable ideas and projects, wet and muddy dogs, mucky paths, major renovation/repair projects interrupted by tractor-woes, wildflowers mixed with “weeds”, farm equipment haphazardly cluttering the timeless Adirondack landscape, and happy farm animals no matter what sort of horrible mess they make!

PLEASE DON'T FORGET A GLOWING REVIEW!

Small businesses are struggling, most of them doing more than their fair share to support community events and noble causes, while barely covering their costs of operation.

If you want to see small inns, farms, and other small businesses survive, please spread the word through a kind and generous review, a "follow", a "like", and a share on social media, etc. etc.

Your kind words help more than you might realize!
