Field & Stone
28 Cape Horn Road, Bovina Center, NY 13740
Deep in the heart of the Great Western Catskills, tucked into a peaceful valley, surrounded by rolling hills and rippling streams, lies Field & Stone, two historic dairy farms ready to host your next film production. With its year-round flowing streams, hidden waterfalls, remnants of old outbuildings, high meadows with long-range views, deep old-growth woods, pastoral open fields, and historic handcrafted stone walls, Field & Stone offers many film set options. It also provides accommodations for 20+ people with its two beautifully preserved Victorian farmhouses. Each home has original ornate woodwork, hardwood floors, and a mix of contemporary and antique furnishings.
The Upper Farmhouse, 3600-sf over three floors, is a recently renovated 19th century home on stone foundation, full of vintage charm. Housing three spacious bedrooms, a 1200-sf attic loft, 3.5 bathrooms, a generous parlor and living room with wood-burning fireplace, a large kitchen, and breakfast nook & dining room that seats 14. The Lower Farmhouse is a 6000-sf Victorian mansion featuring three large living rooms, one with circular fireplace, a large kitchen, a dining room that seats 16, a dry sauna, and a mud room. This house sleeps 12+.
Once an historic dairy farm then a 1950s farm resort, the property was sold to Bob Denver (you probably know him as ‘Gilligan’ from Gilligan’s Island), in the late 1960s. After the current owner purchased the property, both houses underwent one of the most over-the-top interior renovations any farmhouse has ever seen by famed 1970s interior designer, Rubén de Saavedra. The current owner has since significantly scaled down the interiors to instill a sense of calm more fitting to the homes' peaceful surroundings, but elements of the past still remain with the 1970s light fixtures and hints of boldly printed vintage wallpaper.
Field & Stone, a hidden gem in the Catskills, is ideal as a filming location. Set upon more than 500 serene acres with trails, streams, ponds, swimming holes, rolling pastures, and stunning vistas permeating the landscape, the property can stand in for many different locations, depending on your production needs. There is also the Hay Loft of the Carriage Barn, a 1000-sf space with open floor plan, exposed original wood walls, beams, rafters and other rustic 19th century barn architecture, is also available for filming. The ground floor and cellar are works in progress, unfinished spaces close to their originally designed state.
