“A 'glamping' trip to remember!!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

The Marsiglio family at Stony Creek Farm are wonderful. We arrived late on our first night due to car trouble and were welcomed with a flask of hot soup, a loaf of bread and a fresh salad!! We enjoyed the whole experience with our two small kids - touring the farm on the back of the Gator, collecting our eggs for breakfast, milking Annabelle the cow and throwing rocks in the stream for hours. Choosing delicious, seasonal, locally sourced produce in the Farm Shop for our meals was such a highlight. Just enough luxury for Mum and Dad and endless fun for the kiddies. I've been singing their praises to anyone who'll listen. Loved it!! Victoria (Mum to Archie 2.5 & Eve 4 mths)

My boyfriend and I stayed at Featherdown with another couple, who are close friends of ours, over the 4th of July weekend. While the close quarters in the tents are definitely a great option for families, I would highly recommend it for friends as well. The tents themselves are incredibly cozy and very well maintained; offering the best parts of camping combined with the comforts of a cabin. (But don't forget - it's still a tent... so a few cobwebs and critters here and there are inevitable!) We cooked our breakfast of farm fresh eggs every morning on the pot bellied stove, and wiled away the evening hours with red wine and cards by candlelight. An unexpected summer storm dumped buckets on our tent one day - but we didn't mind a bit. Cozy and dry inside the tent, we took the opportunity to snuggle up with our coffee and a good book before venturing to neighboring Cooperstown once the weather let up.
Stony Creek is a gorgeous property, with many acres of land - all well cared for by Dan, Kate and Dan's parents who also live on the farm. Dan and Kate could not have been better hosts... From the moment we secured our reservation, we felt welcomed and accommodated in every possible way. They were both so helpful and friendly, even extending an invitation to join in some local festivities at a neighboring home for the 4th of July! They are also very knowledgable and we enjoyed talking to them about everything from fracking (a local worry) to farming and everything in between.

When it came time to go, none of us were ready to leave...we'll certainly be back, whether it's for blackberry season maybe next summer, or in the fall to harvest the apples and other autumn goodies!

Dan and Kate are the most gracious hosts! We immediately felt welcome on their farm and were encouraged to freely participate with farm activities. Our kids (Owen 4 1/2 and Sam 22 mos) were consumed with exploring the farm and discovering new animals and trails. Owen got to milk a cow and Sam picked fresh eggs from the chicken coop! And they haven't stopped talking about "Howie the cow" who escaped the fence! We traveled with our kids and our friends who have children of the same age and every single one of us left wanting to come back next year! It truly was a fantastic getaway and a refreshing vacation from everyday life!

Room Tip: The tents are exactly as pictured on the site!
