My 12 year old son and I spent a few days at the farm. We really enjoyed our stay. Betsy and Brian made us feel at home and part of the family. The farm is beautiful and the accommodations are darling. The breakfast served is beyond yummy. The animals on the farm were so enjoyable and fun to take care... More

We have been to Handsome Brook Farm 3 times in the last 3 years and every time is wonderful. The owners, Betsy and Brian are so friendly and really enjoy sharing the farm experience with their guests. The best thing is that our 3 children (13, 11, 9) can keep very busy without a tv or internet (although those things... More

I have a very interesting perspective on Handsome Brook Farm... the truth is... I've never been a guest! Well... not in the paying sense. I have been close friends with the owners' daughter since high school. I spent a lot of time at their house over the last decade. Much of that time was before the B&B existed. Going to... More

The whole family (which includes a 9-month-old) had a great experience relaxing and getting a taste of the farm lifestyle. Bryan and Betsy are remarkably friendly, and conversations with them are a highlight of the stay. They prepare a delicious breakfast with fresh eggs from the farm and make you feel at home on their beautiful property and with their... More

Stayed 2 nights over Columbus Day weekend. Bryan and Betsy, the owner/innkeepers, are among the best we have ever encountered. We quickly felt like family and shared many conversations. We had an early commitment in Mt Tremper the first morning of our stay and they were happy to pack us some blueberry muffins (the most delicious I've ever had!) for... More

We just spent nine nights at the East Handsome Brook B&B and had a fabulous time. We had high expectations from the website and all were exceeded However, I have to admit I grew up in the area in Franklin and Delhi in the 1940s and 1950s so my views are influenced by love of my hometowns. Still, I’m convinced... More

First stay here and spent 3 nights. Most of our time was at the Delaware County Fair, so our time here was basically limited to sleeping, showering and eating breakfast. Betsy and Bryan are very gracious and more than helpful in any way you can want for. The food is excellent and plentiful...and wonderfully home made. The bathroom was a... More

Visiting Handsome Brook Farm is like visiting with old friends... only you've never met them before. Driving up a winding road, overlooking beautiful rolling hills; dotted with the occasional farm or home, you come across a sign welcoming you to Handsome Brook Farm. Roll the windows down and listen to the sounds of the farm inviting you in... Ned the... More

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at Handsome Brook Farm. Bryan and Betsy are warm, kind, and interesting people who have clearly fallen in love with what they do. They open their home and their farm to their visitors and their passion for their farm is contagious. The breakfast was delicious with fresh, organic ingredients, and they had... More
