Dancer Farm is a 250 acre working farm with vineyards, nature trails,
wildflower meadows, training and boarding facilities for standardbred
racehorses and a fully restored 19th century farmhouse which is the Dancer
Farm Bed & Breakfast Inn.
The farm fronts on Archertown Road which was once part of an Indian
trail to the Jersey Shore.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, three separate homesteads were built and
farms cultivated on the same land that the Dancer family divided into two
horse farms in the 20th century.
Vernon Dancer acquired the north side of the property with its original
house, built in 1838, which is now the Inn, and his brother Stanley took
possession of the south side.
The name "Dancer" is legendary among standardbred horse owners
and fans of harness racing.
The Dancer brothers, both Vernon and Stanley, are in the Harness Racing
Hall of Fame.
Preserving the feeling of "the homestead" was integral to the
restoration of the farmhouse and its renovation into the Dancer Farm Bed
& Breakfast Inn.
The rustic appeal of the inn is balanced by the comforts of its modern
