Abner's Pondside Retreat

A Beautiful Country Getaway with Stunning Views in a Private Setting

Welcome to Abner's Pondside Retreat, a newly transformed horse barn nestled on fifty acres of scenic upstate New York hillside. Breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside include a working grassfed beef farm and a pond with Canadian geese. A relaxing outdoor patio overlooks the valley just minutes from downtown Oneonta and Cooperstown. Enjoy the expansive, manicured lawn where there is warmth in the summer, but almost always a breeze and the leaves in the fall are gorgeous. This spotless and uniquely delightful property is available spring, summer and fall . . . call 607-431-9438 now to make reservations.

About Us
Abner's is separated into two adjoining suites, "A" and "B." Both are similar in style, but have their own unique qualities. For instance, "A" has a handicapped accessible shower and  offers a pullout sleeper sofa for the fourth person. They are designed for four or fewer people, but can both be rented together to sleep up to eight. An adjoining door remains locked when both units are not rented together.  Stay in touch with excellent cell phone and wifi - and watch local news and weather on smart tvs with cable access.
