Step back in time to an era when caring, kindness and attention to detail were paramount. Constructed during the presidencies of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison (circa 1808-1810) by William and Mary Taylor, Mary’s Meadow was a family residence for over 200 years and now begins her second life as a country bed and breakfast.
Mary’s Meadow is located minutes from the college hamlet of Cazenovia, and 20 miles from Colgate and Syracuse Universities. Fully renovated from 1998-2010, she provides the modern comforts of the best 21st century bed and breakfast’s and inns. Situated on two and one-half acres of gardens and woodlands, she stands with her original hops barn as a testament to a prosperous 19th century gentleman’s farm. Majestic black walnut and locust trees (planted for fencing material) frame gardens and woodlands containing many specimens collected and loved by the ‘Mary’ of Mary’s Meadow, Mrs. Mary Burr Gibson (1855-1951).
Mary’s Meadow offers four-second floor bedrooms with en suite bathrooms for your privacy and comfort. Three of our rooms feature king-sized beds and the fourth contains an antique 3/4 size bed with a twin daybed. For those very special occasions we offer Mary’s Meadow Suite. A grand 22 x 23 feet, the suite features three-direction views, in-room fireplace, king-sized bed, and a luxury bathroom with the claw-foot tub original to the house (1921). The ground floor consists of a parlor/sitting room with wood-burning fireplace, dining room also with a wood-burning fireplace, and a living area with a wood stove which augments the house heat during the winter months. Also available to our guests are the three season sun-porch and outdoor patios and decks in (on) which is served breakfast (weather permitting).
If you love the history or just the charm, Mary’s Meadow and Cazenovia invite you to come, relax and renew.
