We had a nice time, one of the mini cows had a baby, so that was a fun experience watching the interaction and playfulness of the newbie. The mini horse's definitely learn who the treat giver is real fast.
The cottage was perfect for our girls weekend. Everything was exactly like pictured and the farm was beautiful with snow. Sal is easy to work with and very kind. We hope to visit again next year.
Comfortable, rural setting that includes horses and lots of places to explore. Fun for kids.
Felt like we had our own little cottage out in the country. It snowed the first day we were there on Christmas Eve and made for a really fun time with the kids to play in the snow and pet their horse and two miniature horses. The cottage had everything including extra blankets and they provided a high chair for our two year old. Only down side was we got no reception with T-mobile on the property and we couldn't seem to connect to Wifi so that left us a little isolated. Overall, the place is very comfortable and a great spot to stay to get away from the city.
I highly recommend staying here. The hosts provided great hospitality. The house was comfortable and is on an amazing farm. We loved seeing the horses, the cow and the farm cat. We played games in the yard and was able to start on a bonfire. Everything was ready and provided for us. We hiked around the property, which was great. I even woke up to seeing a horse outside the kitchen windows. Absolutely amazing. Would recommend more and complete board games in the house.
Peace and quiet
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Peace and quiet, and that is exactly what we wanted. The property is beautiful. Sal and Buzz were most welcoming. And the cookies Sal brought us were delicious. We enjoyed walking around the property. And there is a wonderful selection of books.
Very comfortable and relaxing setting.The owners were pleasant but gave us privacy.We would return.
We enjoyed our stay. The country setting and cottage were relaxing. The children enjoyed the creek and cookies provided by the owners. You would never guess the property is so close to town. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family.
