About Dawn Phillips

Jake and I have been married for 32 years September, 15th of 2016 We love to travel to all inclusive resorts (most of the time couples) and we have turned this cabin into a very special place for couples or friends to reconnect and relax. With our travels we know the details we expect and try to share that with others on the farm with the privacy and enjoyment that is hard to find! Jake and I actually are always looking for a quick getaway for our anniversary and we found after visiting many places that is was right here on our farm so we should share with others! We have now added a wedding chapel for elopements and vow renewals and I got ordained to conduct the ceremony... it can be a farm wedding/moon - stress free, but so special!

Dawn Phillips purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Dawn Phillips chose Youngsville

This farm has been in Dawn's family for years so deep roots here... She actually grew up right here on the farm and hasn't left yet - must be a special place!

What makes this cabin unique

Birthday, Anniversary, Reconnect with significant other in a time gone by type atmosphere...Intimate Wedding with 20 or less people, Elopement, VOW RENEWAL in a tiny and very special 'masterpiece' chapel. Relax and enjoy some solitude with the privacy of the farm and nature all around from tiny donkey named Lulu, Llama named Maggie Lou, chickens, sheep and it a wonderful setting!

We loved the cabin. Great location for our trip. The farm animals were fun to watch, the porch was great for relaxing , and the pond was beautiful. Dawn and Jake made sure that we had everything we needed . A very down home kind of place. We hope to visit again.

All dressed up for Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cabin about 5 times and we are going back in February. This past visit was our first during the Christmas season. The cabin was all decked out with a tree, trimmings and candles in the windows. It is always a treat to hear the sheep and donkeys calling to each other.

We rested every evening with a movie, after very busy days.

Thanks Dawn and Jake, see you soon.

My husband, dog (Jake) and I stayed in this quaint cabin for 2 nights in September. EVERYTHING was great. Dawn was the perfect hostess and made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. She left a loaf of bread so that we could feed the turtles and fish. Sitting on the dock late in the afternoon was so relaxing. YES, we will return to this cabin next time we need a little R&R!!!
