About Dawn Phillips

Jake and I are high school sweethearts and Daja' View Farm is the farm my Parents and Grandparents started back in 1950's. We are honoring our roots and sharing a past of the rural area we grew up in! We live next door and love meeting new friends!

Dawn Phillips purchased this house in 2014

Why Dawn Phillips chose Youngsville

Relaxed, rural atmosphere stay without being cramped in a hotel room.

What makes this house unique

As Miranda Lambert's song says in her country song....'This is the home that built me'! I grew up here and live next door on the farm! Deep roots! My Mom, Millie passed away in May 2014 and her vision of the house was to share with families for farm stays. It's unique and a wonderful property for family fun!

Mini farm in the country

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Mille's Pad. Dawn and her husband were gracious hosts! The roosters and chickens are fun and fresh eggs in the morning a nice touch. The house is spacious and clean and we enjoyed having a fenced in yard for our dogs. We were here to attend a National Specialty show for Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

The kitchen is well stocked with mugs and glasses and plenty of silverware. The king beds are comfortable and so glad that the host provided linens and towels.

We enjoyed Charlie's Kabobs in Wake Forest for dinner and Pizza Amore was delicious for pizza and lasagna.

Our stay at the farmhouse was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was large enough for our family to be together during my sons wedding weekend. The kids loved our walk through the farm and the animals and pond. Dawn and Jake were awesome hosts!

Nice property with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Millie's Pad was perfect for what we needed. We were there for my nieces wedding and we were doing all of the decorating, flowers and catering ourselves. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out to do their thing and the 2 kitchens were definitely an added bonus.

The house is older and definitely "used". It was not spotless but, was clean. There are a lot of personal items around that make the place feel a little cluttered. I felt as though I had just walked into my grandmother' house. However, none of that bothered us, as we just worked around it.

As the owner states in her description of the house, this is a farm and there are lots of animals roaming around. We love animals so, no problems with this for us. But, if you are not an animal lover you may want to think twice.

We needed a place to be able to get our work done and lay our head down at night and the layout of this house was perfect for that.

The deck on the back of the house was great for the family to gather and relax.

The house is not far from Walmart, Sams and restaurants.

The owners of the property were very nice and left us alone to do what we needed to do. They were also very quick to respond to email and text messaging which I do appreciate.

If you are looking for a property where you need lots of space and where you can relax because it's not so clean it's "stiff", I highly recommend this property.

Millie's Pad

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to country/farm life at Millie's Pad, but we were still very convenient to Wake Forest and Raleigh. I grew up in the area but have not lived there for many years and this was very reminiscent of all the wonderful things that I remember about living in the area. The comfortable, spacious house was well equipped. All the animals but especially the chickens were delightful. Dawn and Jake were welcoming and friendly and took very good care of us even providing an arrangement of beautiful home grown flowers.

A very special place to hang your hat when traveling in the area!
