There’s a different pace of life in the countryside, governed by changing seasons instead of ticking clocks. The springtime is the perfect chance to embrace a slower style of life.
Our local farmsteads welcome you to slow down, take time for yourself, and reconnect with nature. Whether you're stopping to stay overnight or just making a quick detour along the way, our farmsteads will welcome you into a rural way of life.
Unwind at Charlton Farm.
Charlton Farm, located in Avon, New York, was built in 1894 by J. Foster Warner, the renowned architect who built the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. The farm sits on 30 acres of pristine countryside that are open for your exploration. Guests of this B&B are welcome to explore the working farm and interact with the many animals that live there, including alpacas, sheep, chickens and bunnies. A springtime stay here puts you in the midst of a world reborn, with new life around every corner.
Book the Great Oak room for your stay, the largest room featuring its own private bathroom with a soaking tub combo shower, a private fireplace, a king size bed, a walk-in closet, and beautiful views of the grounds.
Once you arrive, get lost wandering the farm, let the hours drift lazily by from the front porch, and relax into the simple pace of life. Borrow a canoe or a bike for a different pace of exploration and end the day watching the stars out at the firepit.
