Tucked into the hills of Newfield at the southernmost end of Cayuga Lake lay The Shire.
A small farm inhabited by kindly folk and creatures of all sizes.
Nestled closely to the vibrant community of Ithaca and at the crossroads of many more.
Here the land offers a unique host of activities suited to all walks of life and the occasions that follow.
Located at the entrance to the 60 acres that we call The Shire is The Studio. Built in the early 1980's as a recording studio for the late Marty Wolfe, it has since been renovated to house the needs of travelers from across the globe.
The Studio as it now stands is a space, we hope will convey the beauty and serenity that our home as to offer.
The Loft contains relaxing accommodations for two with ample space located in The Gallery for larger parties.
The Gallery includes a fully furnished sleep sofa, along with a fully furnished queen size air mattress. The Kitchen comes equipped with a suitable variety of cookware's, plates, utensils, drinking vessels and many more of the necessary devices to sustain a weary traveler.
The Studio comes with two full baths one located upstairs and one down.
The driveway offers parking for up to four vehicles with more spaces available upon request.
Surrounding The Studio are 15 acres of rolling, well-kept lawn, that we welcome you to venture and enjoy. As there are others living on the farm, we ask that you keep a respectful distance from the other dwellings as well as the gardens and barns.
Unfortunately, the forest surrounding our farm remains untamed and should be avoided until we are able to reclaim it from the wild. Fortunately walking trails are in development and will be made accessible in the near future.
Just a short walk up from The Studio, you may find two very kind and very well-mannered horses that you are welcome to visit as much as you'd like, but we must ask that the horses and their space be respected, and the pasture not entered.
We welcome well behaved pets of all sizes, but please be sure to keep them leashed while walking the farm or using the yard.
Smoking is allowed in the areas surrounding The Studio with receptacles available for use, Smoking is not allowed inside The Studio or near the Farm.
Tents are welcome to be brought and used, while small fires are encouraged in the pits provided.
It is here in our lives that we find ourselves living amongst the beauty that abounds from the meadows and springs, forests and creeks that overtake the landscape of our home, the Finger Lakes. That is why we have chosen to share what we have more than enough of with the travelers who come to find themselves at our door and we hope that our home can bring as much comfort to those who visit, as it does to those who inhabit it.
