Come spend a weekend or longer in our cozy farmhouse located in the northern Catskills farm country of Delaware County.

This was a great experience. The house was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. This was a trip that the kids, and adults fully enjoyed. All of them want to go back again. Fresh eggs upon arrival was nice. We felt like we were home. I highly recommend this place if you're looking to get away and relax. So...

This had to be one of the nicest experiences we have ever had traveling! Great house, extremely clean, stocked beyond my expectations! Rail to Trails in the backyard! Fire pit complete with wood, and fresh farm eggs in the fridge for our use! Loved this house, this town, this area!!!! Could not recommend more!

I rented this with three friends for a writer's festival weekend in Hobart, NY, and all of us loved this place so much we actually skipped events to come back and spend time at the farmhouse. Though the pictures are lovely and depict what's there, they don't capture the quiet graciousness of this comfortable, charming home. From the moment you...

About the neighborhood
The Rich Country Farmhouse is located on our family owned farm just outside of the small village of Hobart, NY. We are about a 3 1/2 hour drive from New York City. Locally, we are 20 minutes from Delhi, Roxbury and Bovina and about 45 minutes from Cooperstown, Windham and Hunter. The Catskill Scenic Trail is right in our backyard and there are several used bookstores just a very short drive away in Hobart and South Kortright. During ski season, you can easily get to the ski areas at Hunter, Windham, Belleayre in 45 minutes and Ski Plattekill is literally "right over the hill" in Roxbury.
