The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Most of our guests at Brown Bear Retreat are families enjoying each other for a great vacation get to together. Unfortunately we can't accommodate large crowds. Many of our requests for rentals are for more people than we can handle at Brown Bear. We watched this house being built in 2009 and when it came on the market we knew it would be perfect for the families we couldn't accomodate at our personal home. With 6000 - 7000 feet it can stretch to 20 if need be by adding the separate owners quarters.
