The farm itself offers wonderful relaxation if you just want to read, relax, write, and talk. Walking around the property or venturing further along the dirt roads gives plenty of exercise and scenic views of farms and nature. It is a great place for bike riding with your choice of flat or steep and there are plenty of spots for canoeing or kayaking in the region. Within 10 miles the Amish have developed a thriving community and you have an opportunity to visit 6 wood shops to buy furniture, numerous sawmills (if you do your own projects), a quilt maker, a cheese dairy, or to shop in one of their farm stores and buy handmade home accessories, baked goods, and mechanical toys you have not seen since childhood.
Other Activities: Snowshoeing
About Mike Elliot
I'm retired and am now living in Seattle after 38 years in Philadelphia. 14 years ago I realized the farm was too special and beautiful not to share with others so I began using HomeAway and VRBO. So after much painting, floor sanding, wallpapering, new furniture and linens I began renting. As you can see from the reviews my guests love staying in Greenwood as much as I do so it has been a very satisfying experience. I do hope that you will stay also.
Mike Elliot purchased this farmhouse in 2000
Why Mike Elliot chose Greenwood
I wanted a place that was not now(or anytime soon) become a vacation mecca. With Pittsburgh at 250 miles, Cleveland 275, and DC, Philadelphia, and NYC at 300 Greenwood was perfect. But what struck me was the ad description--organic garden, fruit trees, spring fed pond, updated 1870's farm house, and 70 acres of fields and woods. Another important reason was my Dad grew up in the depression and remembers how people in the country in Minnesota got by a bit easier than those in the cities. He wanted a country farm so together we bought one. But those are all secondary to my first visit. I drove down lovely gravel roads (who knew New York State even had any) wondering if I was in the right place. After two miles and no houses for what seemed like forever, I came upon this vision of country loveliness at the farm. The owner had not arrived yet so I sat down at the picnic table. There was beauty all around me and deep peace. The silence was so profound that I could hear it! Well after that I had to buy it--it took almost a year to convince everyone but when my wife saw a bear run across the road on her first visit she turned to me and said 'we have to buy this place'--so that was that.
What makes this farmhouse unique
There are so many--the grassy path through wild flowers leading to the pond--the rolls of hay in the fields from the harvest, the fact that there was a seasonal road coming up the hill with a beautiful curve, the 1920s gas stove, the swing on the old apple tree (Northern Spy--good for pies and native to the region). The sun porch, the barn with its huge hand hewn beams and granary, and the fruit trees in the yard. The woodshed roof beams made of logs with their bark still on--something I had never seen before.
