12 Bedroom, 7 Bath Manor Rich in History & Class - Sleeps 20+

Vacation Like Gatsby on This Historic 500-Acre Fairy Tale Estate

Get away from it all and vacation like a Standard Oil heir at this gorgeous country estate, open to the public for the first time since its prewar conception.

Steeped in wealthy history, this former vacation home, built in the early 1900s by New York's most famous equestrians (and heirs of a Standard Oil founder and Rockefeller partner), has been meticulously maintained for decades. The view of the surrounding 500 acres overlooking the Butternut Valley provides a peaceful retreat from the city and an amazing backdrop for New York's most grandiose weddings. Whether you're looking to bring your family together for a reunion or to hold the classiest of weddings, Centennial Farms Manor is the most prestigious place in upstate New York to do both.

Each guest suite (part of the sleeping rooms) has a working fireplace, high-thread-count linens, private bathroom and French doors leading to balconies. Other bedrooms have privacy and shared bathrooms. Imagine enjoying a rich cappuccino in the courtyard each morning while the birds sing and the horses graze in pastures as far as the eye can see.

Take a dip in the totally refurbished 20'x40' swimming pool, go for a hike and photograph a number of our property's small waterfalls, play some croquet or lawn games, or roast dinner over an open fire. Peruse the history of the house, enjoy a good book by lamp light, or feast on a gourmet meal prepared in our huge kitchen. When evening embers glow dimmer, you can reflect on a glamorous day in the most beautiful place on Earth with a cocktail in front of one of the 10 fireplaces.

Your room is spacious, inviting and private. Guest suites have private baths and soft, cushy linens to snuggle into. What could be better?

Contact us today and plan your own fairy tale retreat in New York.
