Kids were thrilled!
We had a blast and I loved your place! The kids keep telling me thanks for taking them to the farm. Your place is so nice and it could be a great venue...I am hoping to make it an annual trip though and I'm hoping to get my girlfriend and her family to come with us next time. Thank you for being so hospitable with my kids.

Secret Garden Escape
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We had a wonderful time! We were sorry that it didn't work out for us to go on an official tour, but we had a great time just walking around and visiting with the animals. We didn't feed the goats, but did give them lots of love! We didn't let Walter off leash at the farm, but he did enjoy exploring and meeting the animals, and we went on a nice walk in the woods with him too. We also took him to the dog park in town so he had plenty of time to run and play--I don't think we've ever seen him so tired. All in all, it was a great place for us to get away from it all and have quality family time (for both the 2- and 4-legged members of the family). We'll definitely be back!

Escape from it all!
Escape from it all!
We stayed at Once in a Blue Moon location at the end of July to witness our 2 children getting married. The brides mom and I the grooms mom enjoyed the location, hospitality, surrounding gardens, active chickens, turkeys, geese, Alpacas and some very large Roosters. Our room was clean and met our needs. The owner and her family were gracious, friendly and available to assist us in anything we needed. Orcas Island is a beautiful place to see with sweeping views and breath taking greenery. I would recommend staying at Once in a Blue Moon location for anyone wanting to escape the city and technology focused world that we all live in now. We would stay again.

My standard poodle and I are regular visitors to the Carriage House Loft. We love being on the farm and the Loft is absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway, especially with the full kitchen. Thanks Shana for your lovely hospitality.
