A FEW LODGING OPTIONS (not included):

*Microtel in Bath, NY

*Best Western in Hammondsport, NY

*Earth Sky Vistas in Hammondsport, NY - Come stay with us in our recently renovated 1900’s farmhouse overlooking Waneta Lake, which is a scenic half hour drive from Healing Spirits Herb Farm. We have 2 second floor bedrooms available,  one queen and one double bed, which share a hall bath. Enjoy gardens of edible, medicinal, culinary and ornamental plants.  If you’re up for a hill hike, we have trails through our 6.5 acres, some wooded, some open meadows. Depending on the time of year, the creek will either be gushing or trickling. The walks are a delight for medicinal wildcrafting and the lake views and enormous skies are food for the soul.

Depending on the time of year, my apothecary is usually a flurry of activity as well.

Our hens provide eggs, and you can opt for breakfast here. Healthy, homegrown, fresh, organic, local foods are the backbone of our food offerings.

We also have 2 dogs, an English Shepherd and a Pug, so be prepared to be jubilantly welcomed!  Outdoor cats on location too.

Rates:  $65/night per person, $75/night per person including breakfast.  Dietary requests in advance please.  Cash payment preferred at time of visit, but please reserve in advance by email.

Green blessings,
