Underhill Inn is a small homestead located in the Finger Lakes region tucked in the rolling hills near Dryden Lake. We have a small garden, a flock of sheep and chickens, hives of honeybees and countless wild foraging on our 36 acres of pasture and hiking trails.     Take a walk down to Brockendock pond and cruise across the water in a canoe or paddleboat to find peepers, heron, toads and turtles. Drop a line in the water to catch trout, bass and sunnies. The chicken coop is always bustling and there are plenty of eggs to harvest each day. A morning hike on the trails usually kicks up the deer and wild turkeys and at night the barn owl will sing for you if you listen close. Adults and children are welcome to pet and feed the animals on the farm. There are farm tours available where you can learn more about our mushroom garden, composting techniques, blueberries, felting, and more.

It was a little hard but find the house. I would suggest a sign. However it was a nice stay and I felt very secluded.

Quiet and clean property, beautiful views and I loved seeing the sheep across the lake. The tent was huge, bed fit two and we could have easily fit multiple sleeping bags as well.

Beautiful, peaceful energy
You will not be disappointed. The host family was very friendly and helpful. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful views. It is about a 20 min drive into Ithaca and well worth the drive to be staying out of the city. I loved it as soon as I walked into the Tiny House. The energy on this farm is amazing.

Great magical little spot Rick and family have going. Just as advertised. The sheep on pasture next to spot was great for our 3 year old son. Not much to say that hasn't already been said in other reviews! Book it.

Fun Fall Camping Spot!
Beautiful farm and a super fun place to camp and explore! The host gave detailed directions and instructions and offered suggestions for things to do and eat nearby. We really appreciated his hospitality!

Family and Toddler Friendly
The Tiny House and property was the perfect getaway for my family of four! My three year old was obsessed with sleeping in the top bunk and watching the chickens out of her window. We enjoyed walking down the hill to see the sheep. My husband caught sooo many fish and enjoyed taking the canoe out on the pond. Quiet, peaceful and private…. So much better than a traditional hotel and still had everything we could possibly need. Hope to return in the future!

We absolutely loved camping at Rick and Theresa’s property. It not only had stunning views, but was a joy to explore and very private. We took the canoe out on the pond, met the goats on the farm and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The blueberry jam and farm fresh eggs was also definitely worth the add on. We hope to be back!

Perfect spot, amazing weekend
Rick is an incredible host, only to be outdone by the natural beauty of the property. The variety of accommodations and amenities ensures that everyone will feel right at home, whether that is out on the pond in a canoe, or relaxing under the sparkle of tent lights. The space feels private enough to be intimate, while being expansive enough to feel like there's always somewhere new to explore. A perfect place to catch a bonfire or a sunrise.

Beautiful area! We absolutely enjoyed the sheep. My son loved taking the paddle boat out on the pond in the evenings. The tiny house was perfect for my family of 3.

Great campsite just outside Ithaca
Great location, tucked away but easy to get to Dryden, Ithaca, Treman State Park, etc. The site was secluded and we loved being right on the pond. Rick was a gracious host, readily available if needed and otherwise inconspicuous. The composting toilet was clean and easy to get to. There are a couple sites at Underhill, but they're well situated so you don't feel at all crowded. I think this may be our regular FLX spot!

This camp was a very peaceful and serene spot for my family and I to camp! Beautiful location that is near many hiking spots. Rick was a great and understanding host who was very responsive to any questions we had. Will definitely return in the future!

Camping pond side with animals
The campsite was secluded by a grove of pine trees, offering both shade and privacy. The site had a fire pit made from stones and a large wooden picnic table with a composting outhouse nearby. We could hear the goats and sheep as well as bullfrogs into the night, but not so loud that it interrupted our sleep. Canoes were available to explore the large pond in a few places. I saw a rooster but we didn’t hear it at 4 am. We had a great stay with a beautiful view of a starry sky outside of city lights. We also found a state park nearby with a large lake and plan to explore that as well on future trips.

A lovely and secluded campsite between a blueberry field and a pond. Also friendly sheep in the vicinity.

Great Pondside Experience
The land is beautiful and perfect for a weekend excursion. The sites and amenities are clean and there were no hiccups during our stay. The jam provided by Rick is delicious as well! Would definitely recommend this site to other campers.

I love this place, this is my second time camping with my family at UF&F, and every time we enjoy our stay. The view is amazing and relaxing. It is the perfect place to detox from our daily routine. Thanks, Rick and family for sharing your beautiful place.

Summer Stay at the Tiny House
We enjoyed our stay in July 2022. Rick was a great host. Anything we needed he was just a text away. The tiny house has a DVD player so bring some movies if you feel like kicking back at night. Some cons to the stay: We’d like to have had a toaster for making toast at breakfast, a keurig would have been nice but the coffee maker worked alright and the queen bed was a little small. Pros: It does have air conditioning and a ceiling fan, shower works good, clean and the land is beautiful!

The tiny cabin has everything :)
Rick's land is beautiful and has a great pond to sit and relax by and fish. I have come back a second time because the tiny house is so cute. Its not far from town but you feel like it's miles away. I plan to tent camp there in the future. My friends have loved my pictures and even had friends stop by and love it there. Next time, I may have my sister stay with me!

We had such a sweet time at Underhill Farm. The campsite was glorious right by the pond. We strolled around the farm and enjoyed meeting the ghosts. Rick was responsive and super kind. I hope to go back sometime!

Nice Location
Nice location near Ithica. Rick was communicative and responsive. The site (we stayed by pond) and bathroom were neat, clean, and private. The wood we ordered was waiting for us. It was a little buggy, but that’s to be expected when you’re camping near water and areas of tall grass. Just bring a little bug spray.

This place is great! Multiple campsites well spread apart from each other overlooking the pond. Rick is super friendly and we were free to explore the land including the sheep! Our campsite had everything we needed (fire pit, picnic table, and a view). We highly recommend this spot!

I loved my stay at the tiny house! It's such a beautiful location and the pond is large enough that you don't see the other sites. There is quite a bit of privacy and the fishing is great. I am definitely returning to this great spot. Whether tent camping or at the tiny house it's a great place to get away.

Tiny house with sheep neighbors
What a beautiful place to stay! My wife, nine year old son, and I stayed in the tiny house for two nights. It was clean, cozy, as advertised, and we loved having the sheep as our neighbors! There were other campers tent camping on the property but we didn’t even know they were there. Our hosts gave us our space but were communicative when we needed them! We highly recommend staying!
