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
Relaxed, rural atmosphere for a family stay without being cramped in a hotel room.
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!
Wherever you travel…it’s the people that count…not the place. Think I’m wrong. Take your next vacation to the Grand Canyon….alone….and see how memorable it is. Many of us experience wonderful adventures in life and all too often we take for granted those with whom we share those adventures. Between careers, chores and family, my wife and I led a fast-paced lifestyle. We came to Millie’s Pad to slow down and prioritize our lives. We came to have a wonderful adventure with our young son. Think Indiana Jones meets Andy Griffith on a John Deere! At Millie’s we thought we would be enamored watching the goats eat green grass in the back pasture…and we were. We thought it would be great for our son to feed hay to Lu Lu, the resident donkey…and it was…but to get her to come to the fence line, you do have to earn her trust. We thought it would be nice to turn off the TV and walk a little more…and we did…including walks down to the pond to feed the fish. We thought it would be a learning experience to watch the tomatoes grow…and it was…including a lesson on how to ground up Eucalyptus and have it smell wonderfully relaxing in an instant. At Millie’s we thought we could learn to raise baby chicks to be big and strong…and we did, including a lesson on how roosters can tell time because they roost up high at sunset every day…just watch Henry, the resident rooster for a lesson on time management. At Millie’s we did all of these things and then some…but the real lessons uncovered themselves in the form of the wonderfully hospitable folks with whom we shared our adventure. Jake and Dawn are about as charmingly southern as it gets. They are look-you-in-the-eye respectful, have old school values, and live with a zest for today…because you never know what tomorrow will throw your way. Jake and Dawn, the proverbial DaJa’ View dynamic duo, started off as our hosts and ended up as family. We all shared a great adventure at Millie’s Pad. We learned to slow down again and enjoy family, chores and then career…this time putting them in the correct order. So thank you to Jake and Dawn for sharing their farm and more importantly their time. With any luck we will see you around Millie’s Pad when we stop by for a visit. Because while we are checking out of Millie’s, rest assured that we’ll be back to feed Lu Lu some hay and make sure the chickens are watered. And thanks to you Miss Millie…for making it all possible…see you around the farm…
The place was great. We had a group of 5 guys in the house for a month. Awesome deck with a fantastic charcoal grill. We cooked out every night. Jake and Dawn were the best hosts you could ever ask for. There's just something about the south.
Thanks guys for a wonderful time.
We'll be back!!
We stayed for three weeks at Millie's Pad As guests of Dawn and Jake. The home had everything and more we could have wanted or needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. I cooked in The well-appointed kitchen and we all enjoyed collecting and eating the daily farm fresh eggs. The setting itself is beautiful. We are not sure who enjoyed visiting with the various farm animals-- my daughter, husband and I or our puppy! Peaceful walks on the lovely property were a great way to begin and end our days. If you are animal lovers or just enjoy an escape back to a simpler, slower way of life this is a great spot. We commuted into Raleigh every day and Although it's a bit of a drive -- 20 miles or so -- the roads are good and travel in and out of the city is easy if you're relocating to the area and need interim housing. There are several beautiful state parks and recreation areas nearby if you like hiking. We highly recommend this spot! Finally, our hosts, Dawn and Jake (and Sadie Mae), couldn't have been nicer! You look up "Southern Hospitality" in the dictionary and there's a picture of the three of them!
We needed a spot for a 3 household family get together near Durham, for a graduation one weekend followed by a wedding the next. Our group included Grandma's and Grandpa, Mom and Dad and two young boys, 3 and 5. The farm was perfect. The house, though not a "hotel" was expansive and easy for our large group to either gather in or spread out. The animals and farm setting, especially the boy's going to the chicken coop each day for fresh eggs, were a real hit. And Dawn and Jake are gracious hosts.
Millie's Pad is 30 minutes North of Raleigh....big city convenience with farm fun! Also, 12 minutes from quaint town of Wake Forest and 5 minutes from the growing town of Youngsville.
