Wolfville farmhouse description

Swallow's Nest is located on a family farm with organic orchards, fields and animals. You'll be able to visit a working farm, but there'll be no chores to complete. You're on vacation!

Settled at end of quiet lane Swallow's Nest is a 5-minute walk from the main farmhouse. Two bathrooms, sauna, three bedrooms (king, queen, dorm with queens and a single). Swallows' Nest can privately accommodate 2 couples with the third communal bedroom for the 'kids'. This is an ideal location for a vacation with family and friends.

There's a lot to enjoy without leaving the property. You can walk to nearby attractions, or take short daytrips to dozens of destinations within a 30-kilometre radius.

We also welcome friendly, well mannered four-legged members of the family. Choosing Swallow's Nest for your vacation means there's no need for any separation anxiety for either kids or pets.

A farm stay is a special vacation for families with young children. We have three children of our own who can help your kids make a strong and lasting connection between food, farms and fun. If they like, visiting children will be able to collect eggs, visit the pigs or piglets, and take walks through the orchard and trails. We can also arrange a trip to harvest corn or another crop. Then your family can enjoy this 'just picked' food for lunch or supper. Now, that's fresh and knowing where food comes from.

Adults too may discover a farm activity to enjoy. There's nothing like the taste of an egg when you've brought it straight from the hen to the pot or a salad for supper when you've chosen your own greens!

There are two large ponds on the property. This and the organic nature of the surrounding environment makes a visit to Swallow's Nest an excellent bird and nature watching opportunity.

A calendar showing available dates for your stay can be viewed at the Taproot Farm-Stay “available dates” sub-page.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Josh and Patricia are parents of three young children. They farm organically and run a successful 'Community Supported Agriculture' business. They live in a farmhouse that's a 5-minute walk from their farm stay rental property 'Swallow's Nest'.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wolfville:
                      This guest house has many artisanal features. It is nestled at the end of a quiet lane. There are wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxing with family and friends. There are many things to experience here without ever leaving the property and many other things to do within a short driving or biking distance.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      In today's fast-paced world many of us do not think too much about where our food comes from. At Swallow's Nest you will be able to re-connect with the practice and beauty of growing nutritious food. And, if you so choose, you'll be able to participate a little in the life of the farm.
