We live on this property in a separate house and have a small 7 acre farm. We raise llamas, donkeys, and fruit and vegetables. We also have 2 horses, 6 laying hens, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and fish in the pond. This is a lovely rural community that is close enough to town to give you the best of both worlds.
The 'cottage' is a 1400 sq. ft. home built on a small hill with garage underneath it. Access to the home can be up the front stairs, up the inside stairway on foot or electric chair climber (250 lb. limit), or drive to the back door and enter up 2 steps.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
