We offer an apartment overlooking our organic solar powered farmstead that provides a first hand look at the ebb and flow of a modern small farm. In the summer you will view the kitchen garden, swimming pond and chickens. A short walk through our woods and you will find our Dwarf Nigerian Goat herd along with our Clydesdale and soon to have Jersey cow.

The space

The Apartment is located on the entire second floor with a large mudroom entrance on the first floor. The decor is mostly mid century solid wood furniture which adds comfortable and style. There is a soap stone stove for heating or you can utilize our gas furnace. We have an array of solar panels that provides electricity to our house and the apartment.

For the summer we have air conditioning, ceiling fans throughout and screened windows typically the apartment receives a cool breeze in the summer which is influenced by our Spring Fed pond just below the apartment. Our guests comfort is of the utmost importance!

Guest access

The entire apartment is your space. You have access to the kitchen garden, for 'you pick'. We also have wooded trails, a stream and pond.

Interaction with guests

Our house is located next to the apartment, we will typically be available during your stay if you have any questions or need assistance.

We are open minded and respectful of all orientations, ethnicities and religious affiliations.

Other things to note

We stock the bathroom with organic and natural bath products. The kitchen also has more than just the basics, all organic (coffee, tea, spices, oil) and plenty of accoutrement to cook anything you like. We have a farm store where you can purchase our 100% grassfed (beef and lamb), pork or free ranging chicken eggs.

We are 2.5 miles from Old Tone Music Festival September 7-11.

Cleaning Fee: For a stay less than 3 days we charge a baseline cleaning fee of $50. For a stay over 5 days but under 2 weeks the fee is $120. For a stay over two weeks and up to one month the cleaning fee is $150. Beyond one month, cleaning will be negotiated but we do require at least a monthly cleaning.

We do allow one dog per reservation, we have a $75 fee (for a 5 day stay or less, over 5 days we will need to approve) and please let us know a dog is coming. The dog must be on leash at all times outside the apartment on the farm as we do have truly free ranging chickens. In addition, we have very nice furniture and we have covers for the couch that must stay in place. We ask that dogs do not sit on the couch that you bring a dog bed for your pet.

We had a lovely long weekend at Karine's apartment. My 3 yo son loved looking at all the farm animals and was especially interested in the outdoor cats. We bought eggs and meat from the farm store--all of which were amazing--and Karine also let us try a few duck eggs. The apartment itself is airy, clean, and spacious and we really enjoyed cooking and sleeping there. We were able to explore many local towns and farms from there and had great weather too, which made for an especially good trip! Would happily stay in Ghent again.

A beautiful and spacious apartment! Impeccably clean and tidy, everything you need without being cluttered. The furnishings and color choices are warm and cozy, the mattresses are amazing- nice appliances too. And even better then all that is the grounds! The apartment is situated on a dreamy farm, we loved walking the paths and visiting all the animals. Our 2 year old had so much fun. Overall it was a perfect stay.

I loved staying in this charming, elegant, well appointed apartment. The farm animals added a down to earth atmosphere. I especially loved the gorgeous sky changing colors at sunset right out the kitchen and dining room windows. This is a great space with beautiful hosts.

My wife and I stayed at the Retrograss Farm apartment for one night. The farm grounds are pretty and peaceful - there are chickens, goats, pigs, a horse, and two very friendly cats. The apartment itself was very clean and thoughtfully provided for. Karine was responsive and friendly when we bumped into her in the morning. Would definitely recommend Retrograss Farm if you're looking for somewhere to stay in Columbia County.

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at the “Retrograss” farm apartment. Beautifully updated living space, with all the amenities that one could wish for. Very relaxing to be immersed in the pastoral views and sounds of the farm area. Karine is an accommodating and communicative host. Thank you!

Wonderful farm, in gorgeous area, with friendly and communicative hosts. This was a great place for a writing retreat and the kitchen is, indeed, well-stocked to cook there. One of the best airbnb experiences I've ever had.
