About Thyme in the Country

Thyme in the Country is an 1880s farmhouse located on 5 pastoral acres in the heart of Upstate New York’s Columbia County.  We feel very fortunate and proud to be part of a community with so much to offer visitors looking for an authentic and meaningful getaway.

Surrounded by scenic beauty and agricultural farmland, we strive to reflect this heritage in the accommodations at our country inn. Helping you put together a vacation experience interwoven with our local culture is what we enjoy the most.

From skating in the moonlight over a frozen pond, to jumping from a swing into a pile of fall leaves, we try our best to have our guests relax and enjoy the peace of country living at its simple best.  We are committed to healthy and sustainable living; “green” principles are incorporated into every aspect of what we do, from the food we serve to the electricity we use.  We live and promote environmentalism, and pass the benefits on to our guests.

Experience the peace and comfort of our 1880′s country farm house situated on a five-acre working farm here in the Hudson Valley. See firsthand how the sustainable and green principles incorporated into our lifestyle become benefits passed on to our visitors.

The heart of our property is our beautiful one-acre organic garden overflowing with an abundance of fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs.  Our farming is done without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

We have changed things up here a bit at Thyme in the Country. Mary is still here running the show with a new helpful friend, Barry. Ted has grown and flown for the most part, but when he is not in Ithaca studying, you can find him and his adorable Athena always together enriching the gardens and adding new plants to the landscape. That easy-going vibe still exists along with our high standards for environmentalism. We offer two cottages; each accommodates two people, with the option of adding a small child. They have been put together with attention to detail and cleanliness, making them very special places to stay.
