Authentic Farmstays in the Ballston, Saratoga Springs, Albany & Capital Region
William H. Buckley Farm was established as a dairy farm several hundred years ago, and has been completely updated in recent years. It’s now one of the area’s best known and most welcoming venues for farm weddings and agricultural farmstays. A working sustainable farm, we produce all-natural grass-fed beef, pork, chicken, eggs, Thanksgiving turkeys, and an abundance of fruit from our orchard. Our spacious 300-acre property features several farmhouses and a cottage for guests, allowing visitors to authentically experience the vibrancy of a working farm while enjoying the comfort of gracious hospitality.
Close to Everything, Yet a World Apart
Centrally located to a number of top attractions, our guests love the serene surroundings of natural country beauty. Just a short car ride to downtown Ballston Spa and Saratoga Springs, our farm is only 20 minutes from the Albany airport. Local attractions include world-class horse racing at the Saratoga Race Course, musical and theater performances, museums, fine dining and upscale shopping. If you’re visiting the area and want to enjoy the peace of country life overnight, we have three beautiful options to choose from. Lakeridge Farmhouse is our largest accommodation, followed by Buckley Farmhouse and Buckley Cottage. All provide a welcome respite from busy life, with lovely antique-appointed rooms overlooking a lake and beautiful property.
More Than Just a Place to Stay
If a little more hands-on experience is what you’d like, you’re welcome to tour the grounds and meet our animals, including cows, pigs and chickens. We also have our own butcher shop and store onsite for your convenience, and we welcome couples desirous of a dream wedding with a charming and rustic barn next to our very own lake.
