Kim Stamberger purchased this Farmhouse in 2017
Why Kim Stamberger chose Ovid
We immediately recognized the grandeur and space of the house the first time we walked in and toured the rooms. The house was a diamond in the rough and we wanted to bring it back to life with a modern twist. The renovation and restoration took 14 months to complete.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house has been completely updated with all modern amenities while allowing the original post and beam, flooring and room layouts to shine through. The furnishing are brand new and designed with the discriminating travel in mind.

Could not be happier with our decision to stay. All of our needs were met and it was real luxury We even used the private chef Kathleen for our large dinner which made the stay feel effortless and delicious! The local attractions made for fun filled days and nights. Can’t wait for our next stay. Thinking fall would be a great time!!
Thank you for your review. Dinner prepared by Kathleen is certainly a wonderful experience! We look forward to hosting you again soon!
The house is beautiful and spacious as described by host and confirmed by multiple guests. Our family had a great time. Central location to visit Cornell and finger lakes region.
Beautiful Sheldrake Farmhouse
Sheldrake Farmhouse is an absolutely gorgeous property. The owners, Chris and Kim, spared nothing in their complete renovation of this circa 1850's farmhouse. From the hand laid kitchen floor, to the top of the line appliances, to the preservation of the original beams, to the stylish lighting fixtures, to the beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, to the preserved hardwood floors and, I can't forget to mention, the garage is a gameroom! They thought of it all and packaged it into an extremely comfortable, warm, homey setting. Communication with Kim and Chris was easy, quick and reliable. This is a destination property. We highly recommend it
Thank you for such a complimentary and thoughtful review! It was our honor to host you and your party. We look forward to your next visit to Sheldrake Farmhouse!
Amazing vacation spot
We rented this property for a bachelorette party and it did not disappoint. It is even more stunning than the pictures suggest ( hard to believe, I know!). It was so beautiful, we spent more of our time at the house, sipping cocktails on the front porch or playing yard games in the garage. Our hosts, Kim and Chris were amazing. They popped in to say hi on our first night and made sure we had everything we needed for a fun filled stay! We absolutely recommend this place to anyone ;)
Thanks, Lauren! So happy you and your friends had such a good time. We look forward to hosting you on your next visit to the Finger Lakes. Thanks, Kim & Chris
Comfort and Luxury
What a stunning home! The photos online are beautiful, but when you walk into this home, you quickly learn that the photos cannot capture just how awesome it is. We were wowed! What a luxurious find! Chris and Kim thought of everything to assure that we were pampered and spoiled rotten! If you are a fan of attention to detail, do not miss this stunner! What a great vacation home!
Thank you so much for the kind words. We are very proud of Sheldrake Farmhouse and enjoy sharing it with our equally lovely guests! Kim
Great experience. Property was exactly as advertised. Owners were amazing and very helpful with suggestions on what to see and do.
Thank you, Kim. We enjoyed hosting you and your family. We hope you enjoyed discovering all the Finger Lakes has to offer. Please come back and visit soon. Thanks, Kim & Chris
