The Frida Room is a large private bedroom at Better Farm overlooking the gardens with full-size bed and foldout couch (between a single and full size, appropriate for one adult or two children) The room is on the second floor of Better Farm's main farmhouse along with 6 other guest rooms, 2 shared baths, outside deck, and shared kitchenette with microwave, hot plate, toaster oven, and cooking utensils. There is a third bathroom on the first floor along with staff kitchen and common area.

L'espai
Better Farm's Frida room offers guests a private space amidst the goings-on of a solar-powered organic farm, sustainability campus, animal sanctuary and artist colony. The 65-acre property features rolling hills, open fields, forests, a marsh, pond, small fruit orchard, and vegetable and herb gardens. Better Farm is located in the foothills of the Adirondacks and just 10 miles from the St. Lawrence Seaway, Canadian Border, and Thousand Islands. There are more than a dozen lakes within a 15-mile radius offering great opportunity for kayaking, swimming, fishing, and other water sports.

Serveis i zones comuns
Shared use of three full bathrooms (two upstairs, one downstairs), shared use of upstairs guest kitchenette (guests are not permitted to use the first-floor, staff kitchen), library for guest use, nearby access to hiking trails, free parking, use of two-story "Art Barn" and studio space, kayak and bicycle rental, free laundry machine, towels and linens provided. Organic produce, eggs, honey, alpaca yarn, and other items are available for sale at the farm as well. A farm-fresh breakfast is included in your stay. We additionally offer home-cooked dinners for $15/person. All meals are vegan (except, at your own discretion, eggs from our chickens and honey from our bees).

If you would like a farm tour, we are happy to oblige! They take about an hour and cost $10/person. You’ll get to hand-feed alpacas, commune with pigs, get a full history of the property, and learn all about what makes Better Farm so special.

Altres coses per tenir en compte
PLEASE READ!

There are three large dogs and one cat living in the house! Please be mindful of this before booking your stay in case you have allergies or an aversion to either or both. To prevent a cat or dog from entering your guest room, be sure to keep your door closed.

One of the dogs is quite old and, while adorable and sweet, is not comfortable with children (or adults!) getting in his face—as a general rule, please leave the dogs alone to prevent any issues. Because of this, and all the other, rescued animals on the property, there is zero tolerance for children left unattended anywhere on the property—or for any guests harassing any of the animals here.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT OUR CHECK-IN WINDOW IS A VERY FLEXIBLE 4-9 PM. We will move our schedules around within that window to accommodate you; however we ask that you communicate very clearly about your arrival time (as well as any changes to it!). Late-comers after 9 p.m. will be charged a $30 late fee, payable through Airbnb's Resolution Center.

This is an extremely rural, safe location—so we always let guests know ahead of time that there are no keys to any of the rooms (including the house). Guest rooms can however be locked from the inside. The farmhouse itself has a lot of whimsical, artistic charm—but it is not a Hilton! You can expect it to be clean—but you can also expect it to be lived in, with certain elements reminiscent of any big, old farmhouse. Bathrooms are cleaned multiple times daily but with a large volume of visitors, you'll have to alert the staff if someone leaves a communal space unkempt so we can tidy up! There will be mud outside, and bugs in the summertime, and creaky floorboards... and if you look for them, you can find corners of the house where a cobweb or errant fly has escaped the reach of a broom. This is a 19th-century farmhouse that has gone through several incarnations; from working farm to commune to solar-powered sustainability campus. It is eclectic, filled with art and stories, and cozy. Set your expectations accordingly so everyone can have a great experience! If you are looking for a place with TVs in bedrooms, air conditioning, and a lodging experience set apart from the natural order of things, we are not offended and strongly encourage you to look elsewhere.

Lastly, as a sustainability center we are quite strict about trash. There is a compost bin in the guest kitchenette for all food scraps, as well as a three-bin recycling sorting station. Bathroom trash is for burnable items ONLY. If you have any questions we are always happy to answer them!

Redwood, Nova York, Estats Units

Redwood is a tiny hamlet of only 600 people. The neighborhood is more of an untouched landscape: rolling country roads, hiking trails, pristine lakes and beautiful rivers. "Downtown" Redwood has two convenience stores, a small-engine repair shop, two gas stations, and one pub that also serves food. Alexandria Bay (the heart of the Thousand Islands) is 10 miles from Better Farm and has many seasonal shops, restaurants, an art gallery, and boat tours of the Thousand Islands.

I'm Nicole Caldwell, CEO of Better Farm. I'm also a journalist, author, educator, first-generation farmer, mover, and shaker. Better Farm is a sustainability campus, artist colony, animal sanctuary, and organic farm situated on 65 acres in Northern New York along the foothills of the Adirondacks. The property is just 10 miles from the St. Lawrence Seaway, Thousand Islands Region, and Canadian Border. The philosophy of Better Farm is simple: to take less, give more, recognize whimsy and synchronicity, be more open, get your hands dirty, eat local, and make the world a better, greener place for all living things. I moved to Redwood in 2009 from a New York City apartment where I worked at a desk job as a professional journalist. These days, I write from my back deck or farmhouse office. My first book, Better: The Everyday Art of Sustainable Living, came out in July 2015; my second, Farm + Land, comes out in the autumn of 2019. Today, my husband, David, and I run Better Farm while both working remotely and tending to the farm and another nearby property. Airbnb has been a great way for us to bring a diverse group of people through the tiny hamlet of Redwood, which is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Welcoming people from all over the world to a farmstead where we practice mindful living is a gift; and the ability for people at the farm and visitors to learn from each other, share ideas and come up with new ones is a powerful step in the right direction.

Durant la teva estada
There are always other people at Better Farm with whom to interact; as much or as little as you like. Families renting this room are urged to not let children wander the main house unattended. The building is not childproofed, and the two large, senior dogs living in the house aren't comfortable with strangers getting too close.

The owners of the home have a second, nearby lake cottage that they occupy most nights during the summer. After being checked in, guests are encouraged to enjoy the common areas of the house while respecting the privacy of staff areas including the staff kitchen, and other guests' bedrooms and belongings. Guests are free to come and go as they please—the house is never locked and, outside of respecting quiet hours overnight, there is no curfew. We pride ourselves on being available (in-person or through the Airbnb app) to handle any questions or concerns—but please keep in mind we are not responsible for babysitting, socializing or taking time out of other work or chores in order to hang out with guests (though we often enjoy spending time with visitors!).
