About Jennifer Ellison

We are fifth generation owners of our farm. I, along with my brother Virgil own and operate the farm. It is a quite lovely and quite comfortable. It is modern, rustic, family-oriented, and ecologically-sustainable all wrapped up into one.

Jennifer Ellison purchased this farmhouse in 1831

Fly Fishing


Vacations- get away with family and friends

Great place for kids - playground, playroom with toys, lawns to run on, etc.

You are minutes from the West Branch of the Upper Delaware River where some of the world's best fly fishing happens. Why stay at a stale cabin when you can have a real home with beautiful views, central air, lawns, and very comfortable beds to stay in. We are also close to many of the summer camps near Hancock, NY. when you want to come up for visitor's weekend. Hunting is abundant in the area.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close to every location you might want to go to. 2.5 miles to the river for fishing. 5 minutes to town for a bite to eat, pharmacy or grocery store. Hunting on state land is minutes away. It is a historic farm house with modern conveniences. Be a part of the our story that began in 1831 when our ancestors established this farm for our family and generations to come. Paved parking, stone patio, 24X14 foot gazebo with heating for chillier nights and fans for the day. Geothermal central heating and air conditioning in the house--no cramped rooms with noisy drippy air conditioners you find at other local establishments. Solar hot water. Large lawns, beautiful views. Gosh, why wouldn't you consider staying here! Bonus: Help save a family farm so it is a true feel-good experience!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our time at Briggs Heritage Farm. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were able to relax and enjoy our time during the holiday weekend with close friends. We chose Briggs Heritage Farm because it was easy to get to traveling from the city. Thank you!

Cozy and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Rented this home for some well needed R& was a peaceful stay with cozy nights. Beds were so comfortable, my family enjoyed every moment there. The owner was very kind and considerate to us, she had everything organized upon arrival. We will return in the future. Thank you!

wonderful quiet break away from urbanity

  • 5 of 5

This house is part of a farm complex. It is very well organized, well equipped, spacious, and isolated. That's what we were looking for so we really enjoyed it. Jennifer is very gracious, responsive, and really does her utmost to help.

The house is great, but it's important to know that shopping is a bit of a haul. Convenience shopping is close by (5 min drive), but the nice store (Wegman's) with all the good stuff you really want on your table and a very large organic selection is a 40 min drive each way.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family to spend a vacation relaxing and working on a project. Watching the cows across the street, playing on the swing set, and enjoying the children's play area were highlights for us. The size of the house was a plus as it allowed us some privacy to get things done when we needed it. The house was well stocked and had everything we needed. Sometimes it's hard to find the creature comforts in more rural areas, but this house had wifi, tv, central air & heat, laundry, dishwasher, plenty of hot water, etc.. Venturing out, we recommend the lake beach at Oquaga Creek Park, and eating breakfast or lunch in town at Butterfields.

Peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem! Truly peaceful, spacious, and lovely. The house had all the amenities you would want in a vacation home, and we particularly loved the big open kitchen and dining table. The kids had a blast in the playroom, jungle gym and playhouse, and gazebo. Fire pit and Adirondacks chairs were an added bonus. Jennifer was so accommodating and helpful. We highly recommend this home, and hope to return soon!

Spacious, relaxing family gathering place 

  • 5 of 5

For the 5 adults and 2 children in our party, this was a totally suitable gathering place, even on what turned out to be a cold rainy weekend.

The Briggs Farm offers spacious accommodations and a comfortable, homey environment. From the moment of setting foot into the spacious entry, with large closet and bathroom immediately at your left and right, moving into the open plan great room and large den, and finally to discovering 2nd floor bedrooms and choosing which to use, the welcome was delightful.

In addition to the marvelous outdoor play yard, where our grandchildren spent hours playing undaunted by cold and damp, there is a children’s corner in the den filled with lots of books, stuffed animals, toys and appropriately-sized furniture. This was a hit!

Beds are cozy with bountiful accessories for however you desire to be supported and/or covered. There are plenty of towels (even a towel warmer - how often do you see that?) AND a generous supply of toilet paper - not cheap stuff either! Refrigerator space is ample; wonderful well water, including filtered through the fridge. Speaking of water, there was never an issue with hot water through multiple showers. We were also surprised to discover the range features 2 ovens, which our cooks found a great help.

Internet/WiFi worked without a fuss.

Owner is very responsive, despite being out of town. There is a local caretaker and specialists on call should the need arise.

During our stay we drove about an hour to the Discovery Center in Binghamton, which is a stimulation-rich, kid-friendly environment. We appreciated that this “museum” featured some unique hands-on exhibits including a fire engine and an ambulance. Ross Park Zoo is situated right next door. Even closer to Deposit, is Animal Adventure Park/Petting Zoo in Harpursville, NY, which boasts a baby giraffe born this Spring.

On our first full day some of us headed into "town" for lunch and landed at Katie’s Café. If you are up for very local atmosphere and just "regular" food, we wholly recommend this stop for breakfast or lunch. On Friday at noon the place was nearly fully occupied by locals, but there was space for us at the counter. We enjoyed full ‘fountain-style’ lunches at an unbelievable bargain.

As a place to gather family from various parts of the county for a relaxing weekend together you can’t do much better than Deposit, New York, and the Briggs Heritage Farm. Beats traditional lodging for my money!!!
