A Hidden Treasure: Honeyville Manor

A Hidden Treasure: Honeyville Manor

City life can be so rewarding, but on occasion, wouldn’t you like to get away?  Nestled between Adams and Watertown, NY just a few country miles from Route 81 (exit 42) sits a beautiful bed and breakfast that is just begging to be on your bucket list of places to stay.  Honeyville Manor is a breath of fresh air. The inn sits on over 100 acres of perfectly manicured green grass, with ample shade trees, lovingly tended flower beds and even a picturesque duck pond.  Honeyville Manor

When I pulled into the driveway, I was instantly welcomed with a warm smile and friendly hello by owner/operator Marlene Norfolk.  She and her husband Fred have transformed the little red barn on their property into a country escape for people who are looking for a country getaway.

Marlene gave me the official tour, and as soon as she opened the door, I was in awe. Honeyville Manor is the perfect country escape you’ve imagined made real. Each of the four bedrooms has a private bath, and the grand fireplace in the large common room was built with local stone and provides the literal heart and hearth of the inn.

Fred and Marlene have welcomed hundreds of guests, some for the weekend and some for just a day, and each guest is treated like family. They have a large deck and with indoor/outdoor space, they have held a number of parties and bridal or baby showers.  Honeyville Manor Sitting Room

Honeyville Manor is a hidden treasure that offers high quality comfort and charm for rates that are comparable to other local overnight businesses.  Because the Manor is central in location, you can enjoy day trips to the local wineries like Coyote Moon or Yellow Barn, you can visit a number of local beaches, golf at the country club in Adams and so much more.  Next time you are looking to escape the big city for the weekend, consider the North Country’s Honeyville Manor.
