Gilbertsville Farmhouse

​​​​​​​Gilbertsville Farmhouse has just announced that their Couples Retreat 2017 will take place the weekend of November 3-5th, 2017.  The retreat is known as the most romantic weekend of the year, and for good reason.  This exclusive retreat is available once a year to only ten (10) couples and includes a unique glamping experience in Gilbertsville Farmhouse’s one-of-a-king glamping village, hailed one of the best glamping experiences in the world by The Venue Report and one of the top five glamping spots in the U.S. by top travel blogger, The Points Guy. 

Surrounded by the luscious landscape of the Catskill mountains and the meticulously manicured farm where it lives, Gilbertsville Farmhouse’s glamping tents are each a 320 square foot camping paradise.  Spacious and beautiful, each tent is appointed with high-end plush king mattresses, luxurious bedding, plush robes, screened windows, electricity, lighting, mirrors, candles, ceiling fans and romantic wood-burning stoves.  The common bathhouse is actually not common at all.  Welcoming glampers with a lobby area, leather sofas, rustic lighting and double fireplaces, the bathhouse has rainshowers, private dressing areas and beautiful restrooms that put the “glam” in glamping.  

“We began as a wedding venue, so our glamping tents were designed for romance.  Our Couples Retreat is so successful because romance is what we do best.” - SHARON BOUSTANI, OWNER OF GILBERTSVILLE FARMHOUSE 

If glamping on a fall weekend in upstate NY isn’t romantic enough, retreaters have options to book uber-romantic couples massages, professional photo sessions and a private, candlelit and catered four-course meal and wine pairing.  Talk about private and exclusive, this dining option is available only to one couple each night of the retreat.  The retreat includes continental breakfast with artisan bread baskets delivered fresh to the glamping tent doors daily and nightly campfires and s’mores. New this year will be a “campfire jam session” with a local singer and guitarist.

Gilbertsville Farmhouse will be providing a free luncheon for media/reporters who are interested in covering the retreat on Saturday, November 4, 2017 between 11AM and 3PM.  Please contact Sharon via email if interested:

About Gilbertsville Farmhouse:
Gilbertsville Farmhouse operates primarily as a rustic wedding and retreat venue. It was founded in 2013 by Aldo and Sharon Boustani and their four children, formerly of New York City. In 2004, Aldo and Sharon were looking for a country home for their family — a place to unwind from their hectic NYC lives. They discovered their "little" (125 acres) slice of upstate heaven 3 1/2 hours away from the city, in a town right outside of Gilbertsville, New York. They fell in love.

At first, they would travel almost every weekend to their private getaway.  Slowly, the area, the community and the lifestyle dug roots in their hearts. They dreamt of making a permanent life there. After almost ten years, their dream began to look less like a fantasy and more like a reality. Starting in 2013, they repurposed the buildings and grounds on their former dairy farm to create a unique and gorgeous rustic wedding venue featuring two stunning barns and a one-of-a-kind Glamping Village. Gilbertsville Farmhouse was born, a weekend wedding venue only 3 1/2 hours from NYC.

After three years of operating their business and 3 1/2-hour commutes, the former NYC family became permanent members of their small-town community. As the family settles into their new lives, Gilbertsville Farmhouse continues to grow and expand. In early summer 2017, the family added Goat Yoga to their venue offerings.  As with every part of their lives and business, Aldo and Sharon most enjoy sharing it with others.
