Expect to see plenty of wildlife and summer evenings can be enjoyed from the sun porch watching hummingbirds at our feeders.
Although it's been nearly twenty years since the farm was used as a dairy farm, the barn, silo, and numerous outbuildings allow one to step back in time and imagine what life was once like on the farm. Today, acreage is used for traditional crop rotation and also a Christmas tree plantation supplying an onsite choose and cut retail farm. So, depending on the season, active farming, planting and harvesting may be witnessed. If bored, you might be asked to bale hay or shear a few hundred Christmas trees (ha ha).
Rates are based on occupancy of six people but can accommodate ten people. Additional $15.00 charge per night/per guest. Dogs are allowed at $18.00 per night, please see house rules and restrictions.
