A country getaway - just hours from New York City

Imagine yourself waking up to expansive views of picturesque farm land, being surrounded by lush green trees, breathing the clean fresh air, and basking in the peaceful quiet of country living. Does this sound good to you? Well, it's closer than you think...

The Collins Homestead is a vacation rental property that offers both privacy and luxury in a large four bedroom, fully restored and upgraded farm house. Located in the heart of the Leatherstocking Area of Upstate New York, The Collins Homestead is positioned on 80 beautiful acres of scenic farm land in Paris, NY. Just 4 hours from Manhattan and New York City, The Collins Homestead makes a great weekend getaway in the country. This elegantly appointed home is available for daily, weekly or even monthly rentals as a whole house rental with multiple booking options.

An ideal family vacation spot with plenty of things to do

With many local attractions, The Collins Homestead is also an ideal vacation spot for families. The Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame, the Utica Zoo, Herkimer Diamond Mines and Howe Caverns (as well as many others) are all just a short 10 to 35 minute drive from the farm house. Perfect for families with children, the amenities include 4 bedrooms, 2 rooms containing bunk beds and 2 rooms with queen sized beds, 2 full bathrooms, a laundry room, a formal dining room that seats 8, and plenty of additional living areas. You can spend time by the fireplace in the parlor at the game table, watch satellite TV in the living room, or... you can head outdoors.

If nature is what your family seeks, you can take advantage of our 80 acres of pristine farm land which is ideal for hiking, mountain biking, or riding on ATV trails. When it's time to relax you can sit at the deck & stone patio, light a fire in the firepit, barbeque or just find a bench for quiet contemplation while you listen to the sounds of the outdoors. In season, you will find yourself enjoying fresh fruit from the various species of apple trees, grapes from the arbor as well as raspberries and blackberries.

The Collins Homestead is an all season retreat

Whether your family enjoys activities during the winter, spring, summer or fall, there is always something to do at The Collins Homestead, or very nearby.
