Vacation Like Gatsby's Butler On A Historic 500-Acre Fairy Tale Estate. Get away from it all and vacation like a Standard Oil heir at this gorgeous country estate, open to the public for the first time since its prewar conception. Steeped in wealthy history, this former Butler's House, on the estate of the widow of Al Bostwick, son of Standard Oil millionaire Jabez Bostwick (and heirs of a Standard Oil founder and Rockefeller partner), has been recently restored and available to the public. Built in the early 1900s by the Free Masons and designed by the same architect that designed the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown. The view of the surrounding 500 acres overlooking the Butternut Valley and endless hiking trails provides a peaceful retreat from the city and get away for the week or ...Vacation Like Gatsby's Butler On A Historic 500-Acre Fairy Tale Estate.
