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.

Tiny House at Underhill
The best of both worlds
Really lovely and comfortable tiny home that offered a perfect late-autumn escape. My partner loves camping and I am still getting comfortable with it, so Rick's tiny-home offered a perfect compromise as we got the proximity to nature and the campfire while also having a comfy bed, heat, and a hot shower. We look forward to coming back to stay in the future. Thank you for having us!

Tiny House at Underhill
We loved the tiny house, property and location! There is electric heat that keeps the place very warm, a great shower and kitchen as well. The stargazing was amazing. Dryden has many restaurants, breweries, and hiking nearby and Ithaca was only a short drive as well. We had one issue upon first arriving which Rick responded to immediately despite us getting in late. We would definitely stay again

We loved tent campaign at this site! Tons of space, private, and a great location right by the pond as described, not to mention beautiful views of the surrounding property. Rick was a responsive and friendly host. Recommended!

Autumn Outing at Underhill
We enjoyed our site on the hill. There was plenty of space for our tents. The picnic table and fire ring were in great condition, and the firewood we received was well-seasoned. The composting toilets were easy to access and in good shape. It was a great time even with the rainy conditions. Rick was super friendly and helpful. We appreciated our time at Underhill.
