Perfect location and comfortable for our party of 7
well maintained historical property and located in the perfect spot to take in all the area western history and wildlife.
Thank you Becca for such a fine stay.
We had a wonderful weekend with our family. The property was very clean. We also enjoyed seeing all the amazing wildlife. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a secluded location, but close to town.
Unique, relaxing and full of history property
My family and I had a great time on this property; we had a great time exploring the property and looking at all the amazing old books and other antique equipment/tools throughout the property.
Would like to return during summer time to take early morning walks around the property than sit down out in the patio and enjoy a cup of coffee.
This property is amazing! It was perfect for our family. Plenty of room for the kids to play and watch the wildlife. We loved all the history.

We had a wonderful "back-in-time " weekend. It was like visiting Knott's Berry Farm again. The level of historic detail was amazing. The owner treated us like family. Can't wait to return.
