My dogs had a great time on this beautiful farm. The app routed us near the greenhouses and we met some very nice people as we began our walk. We will be back, thank you!

Beautiful, fenced yard! There's plenty of plants and different types of spots for dogs who love to sniff AND there's room to throw balls. Will definitely be back. There is a pond and one of my dogs did decide to go for an unsanctioned dip 😅

It’s always a pleasure - so fun to see what’s bloomed since our last visit, and the dogs loved racing each other and sniffing around

Beautiful space. Great host! 25-30 minutes north of Albany on the other side of the Hudson. Horses and other dogs on premises and open view to them. Using these opportunities to desensitize him to other dogs. Kat was great with advice. Plenty of toys, but our pup was too busy with all the new smells and the horses, which were a new thing for him. They have a sprinkler, which was not set up yet, although they offered to do so.

Our pup loved it here! Small tip for humans who want to hop in the water; would recommend bringing water shoes as it’s a rocky beach.

We found this place last minute and we are so glad we did. Our boy Zuko had the best time ever at the private beach and he swam for the first time. The owners are very kind and hospitable. I would recommend this to anyone to has their dog with them during the Cooperstown Baseball tournament!

Whitney was very nice and showed us to the private access to water. Beautiful site on the water to sit and relax on the dock or up above the water.

Most magical place ever!!! Property is amazing! The ponds are awesome, one even has a dock for dogs to jump off and the trails are great for the dogs! Everything was incredible!

Loved this spot again, the swimming and the trails are a blast for my dog. Fair warning, I’ve pulled 7 ticks off him so far, even being on two tick preventions, so be sure to check your dog and yourself!

We had a blast here!! There is so much to explore and the hosts are so friendly. Our dog got to swim and run and play. We walked on the trails and then had time for him to swim afterwards. The lake is so clean. We will 100% be back, such a great find to get our dog out of the city for a few hours.

This place is amazing! My dogs and I had a great time. There are lots of nicely maintained trails to walk and space for the dogs to run. The host is great and was so nice to meet us on our visit and explain the property to us.

Great spot! Very quiet and peaceful. My dog loved sniffing all of the animal tracks and running along the trails. There are a couple of places that go right by the road—we didn’t have an issue and walked all of the trails including those areas, but they’re easy to avoid if you’re concerned. My dog found a coyote carcass in the middle of the property, so there’s definitely wildlife around! We didn’t run into any ATVs
