3 Generations having fun together

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family ( 10 adults, and 5 children ages 3 months to 13 years) had a wonderful and memorable time at Michael's Run! We went swimming in the pool every day. We fished from the dock and had s'mores at the campfire . We went kayaking and swimming in the mighty Susquehanna River- breathtaking beauty at sunset! The 3 levels for sleeping worked perfectly for us, and there was room to gather together and also to find a quiet spot at times. Thanks for a terrific time, we made many happy memories!

Great property, loved the various trails leading to the creek and river

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place, definitely recommend, although mother nature didn't help, rain and pool needed a mixologist degree to get sorted but it turned out great, we were 5 families, total of 20 ppl, from 9months old to 70 years old, fun for all...

Beautifully Accomondating

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently had a "small reunion" with 8 adults, 7 children and 1 baby. We had plenty of room to "spread out" and enjoy the wide open spaces both indoors and out! After days of sightseeing in the area, we could return to a large kitchen to prepare meals, a pool for the kids to play, and an outdoor area to watch the setting sun or the many deer roaming the front yard. It was a relaxing home that had many things (books, games, ping pong table, volley ball net with ball, croquet set, air hockey table) for adults and children to keep occupied with. We strongly recommend bringing good hiking shoes for a walk down to the creek, and a vehicle that isn't low to the ground for the ride down to the dock on the river. Truly a peaceful week in Pennyslvania! We ALL loved the time there!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing and so was Ryan the caretaker we had a very enjoyable stay. The bedrooms and bathroom set ups were wonderful.

The pool was over big hit and so were the horses. Very nicely maintained home. We would go back for sure.

A Perfcet Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The farm exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the farm for a week. There were 13 (4 families) of us and each family had its own space. The beds were very comfortable with lovely linens and plenty of pillows. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was an extra refrigerator downstairs. The accommodations were well appointed. We were able to cook one turkey inside and one on the large grill out on the pretty deck. Playing ping pong, cooking, hiking on trails along the Susquehanna and running down the lane to see the horses and greet the cows made Michael's Farm an ideal spot for a family gathering. There is a pool but it was too late in the year to enjoy it. Coming back during the summer to play volleyball and swim in the large pool off of the deck seems very inticing! The owners were great, they made sure that we had all our questions answered and were readily available . We hope to return next year and repeat our perfect Holiday!
