This year is all about escaping from civilization and social distancing from the rest of the world. Ever since COVID hit we've been ditching the flights and doing more road trips.
We came across Blind Buck Valley Farm on Instagram and wanted to experience the countryside to escape the busy city back home.
Here's a quick rundown about the visit. Blind Buck Valley was built in the 18th century that’s located in Salem New York. It’s about a 3-hour drive away from the City of NY.
The farm itself is 180 acres that you can enjoy for yourself. Enjoy the view of large open fields, horses, goats, bunnies, farm cats, feed the chickens, & collecting fresh eggs and vegetables. The kids would love to run through the field everyday free and take a few jumps on the trampoline.
We traveled to the farm in the fall so the mornings would be a little nippy but we were still able to use both pools. The large pool is heated so if the sun was still out it’s wasn’t too cold while taking a dip. Most of our time was spent in the hot tub dust till dawn literally haha!
I couldn't believe how much the house accommodations all ages. There are toys for infants, toddlers, teenagers, & adults throughout the house. Anything you think you'll need to bring is already here to baby gates, water floats/life jackets, winter skis, and more.
The kids of course fell in love with the library room and the kid's room with the bunk beds filled with a play kitchen. The pool table was my favorite adult game I played for hours after the kids went to bed. Coming to the farmhouse brought us, adults, back to our childhood with the board games that we used to play with from our childhood like a "mousetrap", Chutes & Ladders" and more. We even had dance parties with the old record player! It was such a historic place to stay in. We enjoyed our time so much at the farm we would love to come back with more family or friends! Blind Buck Vallery Farm was worth the long drive and escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC!
