“We enjoyed the stay tremendously. Our hosts were very gracious and welcoming. Everything was ready when we arrived, we were able to tour the farm and photograph the many varieties of wildflowers and vegetation. We even helped pick sunflowers for the farm market! Internet access was included, which made for a cosy evening of surfing and sipping wine! Breakfast was awesome, and served on our schedule, featuring fresh vegetables from the garden and home made peach muffins! Yum!” [September 2013]
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Humble Hill Farm in August 2013. We arrived late at night, and Patty waited up for us without a problem. The stars were amazing! A great place to watch a meteor shower. The room and bathroom (we stayed in the master suite) were very clean and nice – even nicer than it looked in the photographs. Patty and her family renovated the farmhouse themselves (I found out the next morning at breakfast) – the feel is modern and spacious, much more like staying in a friend’s house than a B and B which can be fussy or old-fashioned. The bathroom was clean with locally made toiletries and lots of towels. I went for a walk in the morning – and ate peaches right off the tree in the front yard! Breakfast was delicious – Patty was very accommodating in terms of timing and any diet limitations. We have traveled all over the world and stayed at a lot of B and Bs – put Humble Hill Farm on your list of places to go!
This is the place to go if you want to get away from it. Located in the hills above the Village of Candor on a narrow gravel lane. It is down a short drive that lined with fruit trees and old chicken coops. We stayed in the master suite which had its own bathroom. The bed was comfortable. Our bedroom window looked out The bathroom modern and clean. Patty Sullivan cooked us a yummy breakfast of cheese omelets with fresh herbs and new potatoes. They do have internet service, but no cable or dish.
We just got back from a perfect family vacation near Ithaca! My husband, two-year-old, and I shared the master bedroom. It was clean and comfortable, and we were made to feel welcome. A bouquet of wildflowers greeted us on the dresser, and we had our choice of pack-n-play or floor mattress for our son. We requested vegan breakfasts and were delighted with a different breakfast each morning with ingredients from the farm. Our son enjoyed exploring the yard, swinging on the swings, and meeting the children who live nearby. Our hosts were friendly and responsive, but also respectful of our privacy. The lodge is less than half an hour to Ithaca (once you figure out the back roads) and all its attractions. Going blueberry picking at a nearby farm on our last day was the icing on the cake. We’re encouraging all our NYC friends to stay here on their next family vacation!

Our stay here was one of the highlights of our trip. Only a couple of hours drive from New York City, we found ourselves in the most beautiful and remote landscape. At night hundreds of fireflies would fly around the house making it look like a fairy tale. The farmhouse has been refurbished with great taste and we were all very sad to leave after only one night. Courtney and her family were very nice and extremely helpful. I hope we can come back soon.
