Please see the air b n b listing Old Farmhouse at Orchard with location of Burdett, NY for all details and photos : Charming, rustic, old farmhouse circa 1850s located in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine, cider, and dairy country. Situated on a lovely hilltop orchard property directly across from a working cow farm. Rural setting, 30 minutes from Ithaca with Cornell University and Ithaca College and just miles from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, Watkins Glen Race Track, and Finger Lakes National Forest and Finger Lakes Trail for hiking. 14 minutes from downtown Watkins Glen.

The space
We are so excited to open up our old farmhouse to guests. We think it makes for a perfect relaxing rustic yet charming retreat. A great house and experience for groups of old friends meeting up to tour the Finger Lakes Wine Trails, large families visiting for college events or destination weddings, or just a fun escape from the city for late nights of playing cards and stargazing. Just 3 miles down the road from great hiking in the Texas Hollow State Forest and near both Seneca and Cayuga Lake of the Finger Lakes.

Our Farmhouse has four bedrooms, one bathroom with claw foot tub (tub is chipping and may not be great for baths) and shower, a full use kitchen with a brand new stove/oven, a full dining room, sitting room, and living room. Sleeps 12. Outside offers an outdoor fire pit with plenty of dry wood, charcoal grill, side porch and detached patio with glider and chaise, glass topped dining table with umbrella and seating.

Guest access
Guests will have access to entire farmhouse (minus the front porch) with back and side entrances and ample parking in driveway. Spacious yards for outside grilling, fire pit, and detached patio for lounging.

Other things to note
We are so excited to open up our old farmhouse to guests but we need you to know it is a very old home. If you are looking for shabby chic-esque farmhouse this may not be the right house for your stay but we think it is a great fit for large groups of friends that who are up for an adventure, and really excited to visit the Finger Lakes and spend time with each other. It is an old, rustic ("rough around the edges" in an old farmhouse kind of way) house full of cozy quirks and the occasional chipmunk in the attic;-). There is no wi-fi or land-line telephone and some cell phone carriers don't get great reception at the farmhouse. Walls are original plaster with cracks and patches, we like to call them "full of character." Some of the ceilings have patches. Upstair floorboards are original wide plank pine. Doors to rooms swell a bit in the humidity and may stick just a bit. There is a flat screen tv to play dvds, it takes about 10 minutes to turn on/warm up but then is good to go. There is a brand new oven in the kitchen and newly installed toilet in bathroom. Yippeee! And....The most important thing we really really want you to know about our farmhouse is: Being across from a cow operation has its perks...you get to hear cows! And it has its drawbacks...you get to hear cows! and smell cows sometimes too!
