“Beautiful Views, Convenient Lodging, Great for Those Who Cherish Simple Pleasures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2011

My husband and I stayed at Fieldstone while attending the Glimmerglass Opera; I think this was our fifth visit, and we hope to go back many times. The farm sits in a beautiful upland, with sweeping views of some of the prettiest farming country in the east. The lodgings come in two varieties: rooms in a rambling motel-like building attached to the owners house, and free-standing one and two bedroom cabins. These are simply furnished, but everything you need is there, including a full kitchen and (of course) a bath. Everything was perfectly clean, and John, the owner, goes to a lot of trouble to get quests what they need--there's even an assortment of foods and toiletries in the office, so that guests who need something late in the day don't have to go out for it. Also, pets are welcome -- which they are not at many Cooperstown establishments.

I should stress that these are not fancy lodgings -- there's a small flatscreen TV but not many channels, internet is in short supply, and there's no daily maid service. But for those who like simple living in a lovely setting, Fieldstone Farm is the best.

Fieldstone Farm Resort is a perfect place for family gatherings or other group events! The cottages sit high on the top of rolling hills offering breathtaking views of New York State's natural beauty! We chose Fieldstone Farm Resort for a family reunion, and from the picnics, fishing, and hiking, to just relaxing, everyone had a marvelous experience! The owner, John, is a gracious host and immediately makes you feel welcome! I highly recommend Fieldstone Farm Resort -- especially for group gatherings -- and definitely plan to return!

Room Tip: The cottages and townhouses are clean and tidy and are conveniently equipped with full kitchens.

If you love to camp, then this is the place! Gorgeous well-kept grounds, beautiful views, bugs, but…
We reserved a two-bedroom cottage (for 4 of us) along with several other families who chose other cottages and townhomes at this farm for a week of baseball. Our team was playing in the tourney at Cooperstown Dreams Park, and the family members were looking for a place that would accommodate some, if not all, of our families. Unfortunately we discovered that the ride back and forth to the park to watch the baseball games was long and tedious, winding along long and hilly roads. At times taking 30 minutes, and very much a hassle if you want to return to your place when you have long periods between games. This place is not close, and if you happen to have a foggy night returning you had better be careful. Watch out for the four-wheeling locals who think driving in the middle of the road is okay, and also watch out for the many deer. It is difficult to see on these non-lit roads, and driving back and forth to Dreams Park you have to be alert.
Upon first arriving at our cottage we were overwhelmed by the musty, old smell, the place stunk bad. In one room were two twin beds (cots on bricks, I’d say) with a ceiling fan, one small window, and a nightstand. The other room had one larger bed, with a closet and full dresser, ½ dresser and two windows. It looked clean, but upon further inspection realized it really wasn’t. Living room had a fold-out couch with a couple chairs and open to a small, but equipped kitchen. No air conditioning and no heat available in this cottage, but they did provide two extra fans… one of which didn’t work. The first three nights sleeping were horrific, each of us switching from one bed or ‘cot’ to another with a horrible, stained, stinky old mattress. Thank goodness it is shady, for it happened to be a very hot week.
The bathroom was small, on a slope with a wobbly toilet. We should’ve let the water run in the shower before the first person stepped in. What came out stunk as bad, if not worse, than the cabin itself, and trying to remove the stench off ourselves seemed to take forever. The hot water tank may be a max of 10 gallons, so take quick showers if you want it warm. You run out of hot water during the second shower of the morning, and may not have any more for a few hours. The toilet stopped up a couple times with their ultra-thin toilet paper, and we lost power in the bathroom during the whole visit.
The ‘store’ is really just a very large pantry, with a fridge containing ice cream and sodas for 1$ and miscellaneous snacks and supplies. The pool was cold, and quite a trek from the cottages situated way on up the hill. The studio apartments were nicer, and wished we had grabbed a few of those when booking our trip. These apartments are much closer to the ‘pond’, pool, arcade, etc.
Would I return? Not at their price. With the ridiculous amount of money they charge, they should at least use some of it to update this 'resort'. Ha.
I can always find a beautiful place to camp somewhere else... where I will really get my money's worth, and where I will know exactly what I am getting for the price. Beware.

Our family stayed at Fieldstone Farm Resort along with several other families while our sons played at the Dreams Park tournament last week. At first we reluctant to make our reservations there because you never know what your are going to get with a "Mom and Pop" place. We are so glad we did! The place was beautiful. The cottages were very clean, comfortable and spacious and we loved having a full kitchen. The owner was very nice and even allowed us to bring our entire team back for a barbeque at their pavilion. Some of our teammates who came back were staying elsewhere and they couldn't believe how much more we were getting for our money than they were. Our week at Cooperstown will be a wonderful memory and Fieldstone Farm Resort is the main reason. We highy recommend this place!

My husband and I recently got married at Fieldstone Farm Resort and we were delighted at how beautiful everything turned out. The grounds were breathtaking and the serene setting made for some amazing photos. John was so gracious and helpful in every way. He made our guests feel very comfortable and welcome throughout the entire weekend celebration. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a place that feels as comfortable as home. We will be back for many years to come.

Room Tip: Lots of options for size of units and location.
