Stayed here for along weekend of family history and Mohawk River Valley exploration.
The farm, buildings, garden and 500 acres are huge, peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. There are five lovely, unique, spacious and tastefully appointed rooms. Each room also has a spacious and modern bathroom. Everything is impeccably maintained and clean. The rooms are in an original farmhouse brick building separated from the main residence. So guests have access to a wonderful period dining room, living room, library and a common room for meetings/games/working. Again, this is all separate from the proprietor's living space and for exclusive use of guests. The guests rooms and common spaces are filled with antiques and artwork passed down from generations...all tastefully arranged. Its like living in a museum.
There was no-password, free and strong WiFi throughout the house.
Breakfast was wonderful and different each day.
June and John are wonderful hosts and can tell you all about the history of the property or local sightseeing recommendations. John's ancestor was a whaling captain and there are even artifacts from his ship,
It is a prefect location for exploring the Mohawk River Valley.
Although perhaps 10+ minutes from the New York Throughway, I would even recommend staying here if just "passing through".
I can't praise or recommend Halcyon Farms B&B highly enough. I will return and hope to spend more time exploring the property.
