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.
