About Us

Green Farm is a historic mansion located in Lakewood, NY on the shores of Chautauqua Lake. This nearly 10,000 square foot 8 bedroom home was built by millionaire banking and tobacco heir Paul Sorg in 1906. It has been lovingly renovated while keeping its historic character. Every room has unique features that could never be recreated today, featuring hand-carved moldings depicting characters from Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, the original ice chest and a stunning bridal staircase. Green Farm was the personal home of Sorg and his wife until her death in 1929, it was then converted to an exclusive tea room that even remained operational during World War II. Green Farm is now a year-round vacation home where travelers enjoy the beautiful home, the Chautauqua Lake dock exclusive to Green Farm, the famed Chautauqua Institution, walking distance restaurants, coffee shop, park, tennis and all that the greater Chautauqua area has to offer.
