MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale !!!! Save the Date

 

The long awaited announcement is out, and much earlier than normal.  Yes the huge!!!!! Barn Sale is set for July 16-19, 2015.  In the past, everyone at MacKenzie-Childs was very close lipped until right before the date.  No excuses this year for not attending … you have over 3 weeks to plan and prepare.  Come early and call for reservations now, as rooms in the area fill up quickly.  You might want to check out some of the B&B’s in the area and maybe even some of the lakeside rentals.

This sale is attended by followers from all over the world, literally.  Every year at this time, my phone starts to ring and it mixed between real estate clients looking to buy or sell, or it is the proverbial question “Do you know when the Barn Sale is?  I just have to go.”  So there you have it.  You now know the ball is in your court.  Hey you may even see me this year,  I have avoided the sale for the last few years.  Well not really avoided, but had client appointments.

While you are here, how about looking at some great vacation properties?  If you own a vacation home in the area, you will always have a place to stay for the sale.  Plus you will have another reason to pick up more “goodies” at the Barn Sale.

Bring your wallets and shopping savvy…there will be some great buys !

It seems like every other week the Finger Lakes area makes it on one list or another for top 10, for best of, or a combination of headlines.  The area is known for so many great things.

  • Wineries/wine
  • Craft beers
  • Beautiful clean and clear lakes
  • Farm to table dining
  • Museums
  • Historic figures that were responsible for Women’s Rights and the end of the slave trade.
  • The birthplace of Memorial Day
  • A roadway and canal system that have their own history
  • Quaint villages and towns
  • Antiques
  • Grand Prix Racing at Watkins Glen
  • Corning Glass and other major corporations were founded in this area

So it was no surprise to see that Yahoo had the Finger Lakes listed as a must do road trip.  There really is so much to see and do in this area.  Many people that come from outside the area are surprised to see that the entire state is not made up of skyscrapers.

If you would like more information on the housing market and or lakefront properties, contact Mary St.George for your real estate needs and she may even encourage you to either invest in the area or purchase a wonderful vacation home.  She will even suggest her favorite spots to visit and dine at.SAM_7754

Fall “Into” The Finger Lakes

 

 

Driving from a client’s property near Hammondsport on Keuka Lake, I felt compelled to stop and take some photos.  I should have stopped more but had to get to another appointment.  As I looked at the photos, it reminded me of the reasons that have made the Finger Lakes area such a destination area in the Fall.  Folks come from near and far for the fall colors and views and of course the wine trails. As you drive down the road on a nice warm day with the windows open, the aromas of the vineyards take over your senses. The visual experience is just as powerful.  It becomes difficult to not stop…you become compelled to stop and saturate your senses.  The colors, the smell, the contrast of the bright blue skies against the autumnal colors in the horizon are all there for you to capture if only in your mind.
