Wonderful in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

The hospitality that Valerie and Brad showed our family was second to none. The time spent with all of the animals (horses, alpacas, dogs, chickens) are memories that our family will cherish always. My daughters only wished we lived closer so that they could ask for a summer job taking care of the animals. We loved grilling dinner, sitting around the fire, and toasting marshmallows and making smores. The suggestions that Valerie provided us each day for what we wanted to do was also spot on. Great recommendations for food/activities. Valerie and Brad offer a very unique experience sharing their love of the surrounding area, their property, and of course their animals which are absolutely members of their family. Thank you again for your friendship and for a wonderful stay. My family and I can't wait to return!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The fire pit was already set up for us, there's a cat who makes for a very eager host, we were given carrots to feed the horses, the guest house is clean and sweetly decorated. I left some articles of clothing behind and Valerie was kind enough to mail it to me free of charge.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Well, this place is a gem. Valerie greeted us upon arrival and introduced us to all of the animals—so much fun. The atmosphere is absolutely charming and there were plenty of extras (s’mores goodies, coffee, etc). We had a great time visiting JMU and a fun time when we went back to the apartment too. The kids are still talking about the alpacas, horses, and Wilbur. :) Thank you so much!

Best Time of Our Lives!!

  • 5 of 5

My Sailor and I had the best time here! We enjoyed some well needed off time. My husband and I loved listening to the stories surrounding the animals and Valerie's story on how she meet her husband. We felt welcomed from the moment we step foot out of our car! We enjoyed every second of our stay! We will definitely be back soon!
