Country Cottage

10448 Harper Road
Darien Center, NY 14040

Hours of Operation

Daily: 11 am to 6 pm

Enjoy unique shopping and home-made refreshments - off the beaten path! A little known collection of clever cottage shops situated amidst meticulously-crafted flower and water gardens. Each cottage contains unique country gifts, baked goods, rustic home decor and unusual craft items. Self-serve refreshments available.

There’s a trove of ideas for home decorators and little vignettes of days gone by – old boxes from Schraff’s Candy Store, an ancient “Majestic” stove, toiletry bottles, vases, hand-painted signs. For the garden and porch, you’ll find harmonic wind chimes, whimsical whatnots, lawn ornaments, and the like.

Peggy grows most of the flowers and plant materials she uses in her crafts. She has a potting shed, small greenhouse and flowers are hung up to dry in one of the cottages. Upstairs in the main cottage is the loft where she creates the arrangements.

For those who are not keen on browsing, or who need to rest a bit, there’s a little pond out back surrounded by a lovely landscape and seating. It’s a nice place to relax.


Sign up for one of our exciting workshops. You will learn many unique techniques, as you create with the amazing, DIY clay based paints and Iron Orchid Designs transfers, moulds, and stamps.

Workshops are available weekly
