On this Historical, Magical, Private, Waterfront Peninsula, located in beautiful High Falls, is an early 1800's Farmhouse, built by the Alliger Brothers. 11 acres with 5 linear acres of Rondout Creek and swim holes, this Farm was used as a barge stop in the late 1700's, early 1800's for overnight stays, a hot meal, hard cider and ale. You can feel the festive energy when you enter the kitchen. Supplies were brought up the river to help build the D & H Canal and the Hamlet of High Falls. Mules were stabled here to haul supplies and plant the fields.
