Better Farm is a 65-acre organic farm, animal sanctuary, artist colony, and retreat space. The property features forests, rolling hills, open fields, a pond, sauna, various paddocks for the rescued farm animals, organic gardens, a two-story Art Barn with local FM radio station, gallery, studio and recording space, and a second barn used for events.
This second-generation property began as a 1970s commune that since 2009 has been revived and renovated to provide overnight lodging, event space, residencies, and educational opportunities for the curious and creative.
The farm is 10 short miles from the St. Lawrence River and Thousand Islands of Northern New York. The area is a naturalist's paradise, with countless outdoor opportunities to enjoy from boating and swimming to snowshoeing and hiking. There are more than a dozen lakes within 10 minutes of the property, with cute towns to explore including Sackets Harbor, Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Wellesley Island.

I loved everything about my stay. The Birdhouse cabin was the right level of roughing it for me - private space with a shower and refrigerator nearby. Very fun and relaxed hosts. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

Rustic Tiny Home Cabin
Great stay! Flexible hosts and sweet dogs. Perfect balance between social and giving us our space. Tiny house was definitely rustic, but was better than camping outside and met our expectations!
