Le logement

With a 4000 square foot house, 5 acres of land, and several outbuildings, you can imagine we can use all kinds of help!

You can choose to "glamp" in one of our out buildings (you will have to fix it up), tent camp, or stay indoors - or some combo. We also have some gazebo frames inside the pool enclosure that you can fix up for a nice outdoor experience.

We also have indoor rooms - choice will depend on availability.

All facilities include shared kitchen and bathrooms, front porch use, fire pit, wifi, parking.

Accès des voyageurs

We're always interested in work trades for help with yard and mowing, cleaning house, repairs, carpentry, fix-its, special projects firewood gathering and stacking, etc.

In exchange, we offer a room or tent space to a qualified individual. In the past, we've had international students, retired persons, traveling contractors, artisans, designers, painters, cleaners stay with us in exchange for helping us with their talents.

The exchange is a room or camping space in exchange for 2-3 hours help/day. We leave it flexible, as some people work fast and steady, and others like to set a more leisurely pace. The bottom line, is things get done that need doing!

Work traders provide their own food and make a small contribution towards utilities (gas, hot water, wifi, electric, telephone).

There is no financial stipend of any kind.

Some of the wonderful people who've stayed and helped include: a recent divorced person going through transition, a vet adjusting to life outside of service, several international students, designers from Europe who transformed a few rooms and did nice painting, a contractor who remade Apartment # 1 into a cute rustic studio, a retired person looking to “volunteer” and keep busy...

This trade is for people who are good workers and can work independently, are friendly and have good boundaries.

And, of course, they should like and agree with the policies and rules of maintaining a quiet peaceful space for quiet people. No smoking, nothing illegal, etc.

And they must have real skills and be willing to apply them honorably. In other words, no slackers!

Special terms for those with building maintenance and carpentry skills.

With a confirmed booking, we can send you our extensive doc with places to visit, attractions, shopping, art shows, eagle watching, nature walks.... the classic Catskill lifestyle fun.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Work traders must have good boundaries. You may help welcome other guests park and carry their belongings to their room.

We respect our guests privacy - interacting when invited, or giving them their space as they desire.

Le quartier

Our yard was planted for a nature habitat along the suggestions from the National Audubon Society to create sanctuary for birds, butterflies, and bee. We practice edible lawns and gardens - no sprays, so you can walk barefoot on the grass. We have many edible and medicinal plants - for people, birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

The neighborhood is rural with 5 acre minimum zoning. It is pretty quiet overall. You will hear birds sing, frogs croak, the wind, the tree leaves...

It's a lovely quiet neighborhood. The tent sites border a 155 acre woods.

You can walk 1 mile to the local Morningside Park with boating, hiking, etc.

Morningside Park, Fallsburg NY for the link.

There are also Rails to Trails hiking within 1 mile from the Old Fashioned Country Farmhouse.

Once you have a confirmed booking, we can message you the e-doc house and area guide - which is pretty comprehensive and full of great places to visit, local restaurants, shopping, things to do, and a little house and area history.


You will need a car. Some work traders have biked everywhere. 7 miles to nearest supermarket.

Autres remarques

We've had wonderful work traders over the years. Some projects have included basic lawn mowing, gardening, pruning, vacuuming, painting, design and decoration, graphic arts design, fix its, carpentry...

We start with a one week get-acquainted period. If we are a good match and everybody is happy with the arrangement, the work trade offer will be extended week by week.

We've had our wonderful helpers stay from a few weeks to several months. Some have come back for several years for the warm weather seasons.

Règlement intérieur
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait à partir de 15:00

Please see house rules listed in our other bookings. This is a quiet house for quiet people - with legal things only.

Being at Pat's was truly an experience. I learned so much about permaculture, sustainability and conservation. The land is truly amazing and it is like a farmhouse so be ready for a communion with nature here... Which many need. I needed it. I suggest yoga on the grass too and if you are lucky enough to get some of Pat's knowledge it will serve you well.

I enjoyed my stay with Pat. She made me feel very welcome and it was great to get away to the Catskills and experience the beauty of the area. The farmhouse has a lot of character along with a lovely yard and surrounding forest to enjoy. I appreciated the opportunity to team up with her on house and yard projects in exchange for the reduced rate, what a great idea. Looking forward to returning soon!

I’m going on 2 weeks as a “work for rent” intern at the farmhouse, and it has been a great experience thus far. Host Pat has been welcoming and warm from the start. Being in a period of transition, I had been looking for a place to focus, regroup and contemplate next steps, as well as work and get the creative juices flowing. Pat has been understanding and supportive, and the environment she has created here is ideal for me right now. Meeting guests as they pass through has been engaging, and keeps me from feeling too isolated during this phase. Pat’s commitment to conservation in everyday life here has been educational and inspiring. The house itself is well worn yet well kept, and the lush grounds reflect the care and nurturing she has put in. I have found the work I’m doing here rewarding and therapeutic. Pat always has good suggestions to solve issues regarding projects, yet is flexible and allows room for my input and ideas. Beyond providing a place to stay, she has been a generous host, cooking and sharing food to keep me going. It’s been a great area to explore as well- the property includes sprawling pine forest, and there are many beautiful parks nearby. There are markets with local produce to feed the body, as well as Buddhist Temples and yoga retreats to feed the soul.

Not to worry - if we offer you tea, coffee, meals, etc - there is no extra charge. We just want to help you have a wonderful stay where you feel right at home in the country. It's our treat for you!

Frequent guest Audrey says

"I found Pat and her old fashioned farmhouse in the southern Catskills back in 2003 thanks to a New York State information site. What a blessing that was! Have been back spring and fall ever since. Besides visiting family in the area I have enjoyed impromptu gatherings with Pat's neighbors and other farmhouse guests on many occasions. On my recommendation a good friend spent a summer there and took advantage of the scenic bicycling."

"What I really like about Pat and her farmhouse is the magic and merriment that seem to reside there. For example, for some reason I thought Pat had come from India, so the first time I made a reservation (having seen a New York State accommodations listing) I asked an Indian friend to make the call for me. Well, Pat couldn't understand a word of my friend's Hindi nor her heavily-accented English while my friend assumed she did, and I nearly didn't have a reservation! The three of us laughed over this for a long time. That was 2003. Since then I've been going back just about every spring and fall and having a perfect stay every time. Highly recommended."

Love, Audrey

Sean Zigmund owns and operates our local CSA and organic permaculture farm and farm stand with his wonderful wife and partner Cheyenne. His website is RootnRoost in NY.

Sean's farm with tours and farmstand are included in our house and area e-guide you get with your confirmed booking.

"Pat is one of those rare people you find who has such zeal for life that you will always learn something new and enjoy your time together, even if for just a few minutes.

"I met Pat through an online ad she placed in which she was asking for a hand-me-down guitar for a friend of hers who was staying at her B&B for a brief period.

"I loaned her friend one of my guitars and instantly formed a friendship with Pat. She has a passion for plants (culinary, medicinal, and esthetically), food, community, and creating spaces that invite nature in.

"As a farmer and permaculturalist myself, we hit it off and keep in contact, swapping plants and stories of our adventures in self sufficiency, gardening, preserving, seed saving, building, and all the other fun and challenging activities that round out a homesteader's life style.

"Her B&B is a charming, creatively designed slice of southern Catskill country life! With a diverse landscape of medicinal and culinary treasures outside, and the creature comforts of home inside, this little nook of Hurleyville, NY is just what a person needs to unwind from the hectic, hustle-bustle of the 'real' world.

"Pat's knowledge of the surrounding area and her connection to the local community are an added bonus for the traveler who wishes to spend time outside their box and experience our little slice of paradise in the southern Catskills.

"I highly recommend a stay at her B&B and a good look at what the Sullivan County Catskills have to offer!"

Thanks, Sean! And yes, our yard is planted for bees, butterflies, and birds and edible lawns and gardens for we humans, too. We mow AROUND the clover in the grass 'cause the bees love it so much.

Our lawn and gardens are unsprayed so you can walk around barefoot if you like.

We are not the "country club" look.
We are the natural habitat look!



Our c. 1840's historical farmhouse is a rare example from another age. It has an illustrious history as a rooming house and as a "kuchalein" (cook alone - each family cooked alone). When we purchased the house, each of the 9 upstairs bedrooms was furnished for a family - with 3 or 4 beds in each small room. There was a kitchen with 9 stoves and 9 dish cabinets - a separate setup for each of 9 families who visited for the summer from New York City. There were a hundred or so small chairs for the kids and families (chairs long sold to antique dealers).

The old Hurleyville railroad station brought families and visitors up from New York City. Horse and buggies would line up - calling out the names of the different boarding houses to take city folk for an experience of fresh air, fresh food, fresh water. Some things never change! The locavore movement is still going strong in the famous Catskill Mountains!

The Hurleyville railway has morphed to the Rails to Trails scenic walk and bike trail close to our house.

Big concrete chunks a foot thick from the Hurleyville station floor actually filled in the mud hole that is now our grassy parking drive and RV hardpack. (How we got them here is an interesting saga in itself!) So you are definitely driving over some famous history when you enter our property!

This video shows many of the old famous hotels from previous centuries - including famous mountain houses (big and small) in Hurleyville, Loch Sheldrake, and Fallsburg.
