Sackett and Van Dam Cottage at Little 9 Farm Gears Up for Winter Fun

Little 9 Farm

The Sackett and Van Dam Guest Cottage at Little 9 Farm, recently featured in Hudson Valley Happenings and selected by Travel & Leisure Magazine Online as one of "The 10 Best Remote Airbnbs for an Escape From Reality​," is gearing up for a busy winter season.

Besides the sprawling, 119 acre property's usual charm, the colder months bring myriad activities for those who don't mind a little nip in the air. With private hiking trails through rolling meadows and pristine forests, guests can experience being lost in nature without even leaving the grounds. When snow is in the forecast, sledding, snow-shoeing and even cross country skiing are all just steps from the Cottage door. For those longing for the slopes, Little 9 Farm is within an hour's drive of half a dozen of the Northeast's best ski mountains. 

When relaxation is on the agenda, The Sackett and Van Dam Guest Cottage's outdoor fire pit and indoor gas fireplace provide a cozy respite, whether you prefer outside or in. And, as always, guests are provided with farm fresh eggs daily from the working farm's hens in residence.

"Many people think of the Hudson Valley as only a summer or fall getaway, but the winter is arguably the best season of all here," said Matt Trust, co-owner of the property. "Whether you like to bundle up and sit by the fire, or have an active winter vacation, this is the place."

Little 9 Farm's history dates back to the Royal Patent of 1706 that gives rise to its name. Over 300 years later, it maintains its colonial charm, at the same time reflecting the sophisticated sensibilities of its four owners, who have lovingly restored the property after acquiring it in 2019. Under two hours by car from the New York metro area, Little 9 Farm allows guest to experience "farmhouse luxury" in historic Dutchess County.
