About Westfall Station Cafe

The vision for Westfall Station was formed to help establish the Town of Sand Lake as the beautiful  and vibrant place it once was, when tourists  frequented our area  by trolley to visit our many lakes and attractions.  It was also intended to establish another facet of a true “Traditional Neighborhood Development”  Westfall Village  by offering a quality gathering place for its residents and for the community at large.

The name “Westfall” is derived from the Westfall family who originally occupied the site since 1823, and were subsequently released from the Van Rensselaer  patroonship that dominated much of our area.

The Westfall Station staff will go out of their way to please you, we’ve tried vigorously to provide you with quality foods and beverages in an environment where our  patrons feel most comfortable.  Our patrons should not settle for less.  Edward Patanian-Owner, Zachary Oliver-Chef, Victor Simeone-Bar Manager


Westfall Village History

fallgazeboWestfall Village is a new hamlet is on the north side of Rt. 43 in the town of Sand Lake. A multiuse development, the parcel was known for years to the locals as Bon Acre.

Westfall Village is located on 92 rolling acres in Rensselaer County. This parcel has been used as farm land from earliest recorded history. Once part of the vast Kiliaen Van Rensselaer feudal patroon system, it became the Westfall farm. The Georgian style brick farm house, now on an adjoining parcel, and four other houses in the area were likely built by Harmon Westfall circa 1835.
