GIVE me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling;
Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the orchard;
Give me a field where the unmow'd grass grows;
Give me an arbor, give me the trellis'd grape;
Give me solitude—give me Nature—give me again, O Nature, your primal sanities!
- Walt Whitman

Welcome to Erieville Manor, the enchanting Farmhouse nestled in the farmlands of Madison County. Located in the hamlet of Erieville in the town of Nelson, the Manor is 4½ hours from the hustle and bustle of New York City and only an hour's drive from the Syracuse Hancock International Airport.

Whether you're seeking refuge from a bustling noisy city, or perhaps just need to reconnect with yourself or a loved one, Erieville Manor offers peace, serenity, and the inner calm we all seek in our daily lives. Let me provide you with a home away from home, a place to find renewal and also to inspire and arouse your weary soul.

The original 1860 Farmhouse has been fully renovated to reflect the serenity of its 5-acre apple tree filled landscape, coupled with the casual elegance of European hospitality that allows one to feel at home.

You can sit under the stars or stroll along the 400 foot stream at the back of the property. There are plenty of private places to escape and unwind.

We love dogs! Fellini, my 15 year old lab/boxer mix, invites you to bring him some friends to play with. Please click on Policies to read our rules.


As an Architectural Designer, I was drawn to this remote and mysterious upstate New York location 2772 miles from my residence in Hollywood, California. I had a few requirements for my Bed & Breakfast renovation project: the home had to be old (the original backside of the house was built in 1790), the property must have a good sized piece of land with a natural water source, and most importantly I needed a setting for a white Christmas. I purchased the property in 2007 and fell instantly in lovewith the area and the people who live here.

The climate is uniquely controlled by the "lake effect" which offers pure water and cool summer evenings.

"I never saw so many stars stretched across the sky and looming beyond them clouds of purple and orange."
