About Kristin Conley

After traveling and working in different parts of the world for many years, I am lucky to call Crooked Finger Farms my home. It is a life dream realized! And I am excited to be able to share such a special place with others who appreciate the natural beauty of this Historic Farmstead! The work is never ending but oh so rewarding... The fruits of my labor realized literally! A place where my horses can eat green grass and run free... A place for friends to gather, share a great pot of coffee or a good bottle of wine...tell stories, play music and enjoy the gardens... Did I mention gardens? Looking forward to the warmer summer months this year... Excited about what my garden will produce...

Kristin Conley purchased this house in 2011

Why Kristin Conley chose Scotts Mills

I have always had a passion for horses, hiking, historic homes and gardening... to name a few. I have never found a place more ideally suited for all my passions combined!

What makes this house unique

The rich volcanic soils, natural, pristine waters, acres of lush green pastures, mature landscaping, gardens and a huge historic red barn. Crooked Finger Farms is my dream come true!

Perfect Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect setting for our family to gather for our first Thanksgiving together in over 30 years. Mary, the caretaker for the week went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She even did a little decorating for the holiday. Four of us stayed at the cottage for 3 nights and 8 more came to share Thanksgiving dinner. The large kitchen and dining room were perfect to meet our needs. The Crooked Finger Farm is located in a beautiful area rich in history surrounded by Christmas tree farms. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean, it felt like home. I would say that if phone service is imperative while you are on vacation this may not be ideal. The cell service is really non-existent...which can be a good thing for most people looking to get away and the house phone was not working. They do have internet so texting is an option. We loved it and would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Valerie and her family were great guests to have on the farm. And I am so glad they enjoyed their stay! We love hosting guests like Valerie, as the property is ideal for gatherings and family celebrations. Unfortunately, I was out of the country during their stay, so I was unaware that there was a problem with the phones when they checked in. Apparently there was a phone outage during their stay, and they were unable to make calls with the land line. Although outages do happen, this is an unusual occurrence. We do provide a landline for guests exclusive use. We also provide unlimited internet for internet and cell phone useage, so calling and cell phone usage is not usually a problem.

Serene farm, perfect farm house, awesome host

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing few days on Kristin's farm. My only regret was not booking a few days longer (next time). The farm itself is beautiful and serene. We loved the hiking trails, picking raspberries for breakfast, and the friendly visits from Sima dog. The house itself was comfortable, roomy, exceptionally well-decorated, and had everything we needed. Kristin was the best VRBO host we have had. She was wonderful with our 4 year old daughter, letting her "help" on the farm with collecting eggs, brushing Mr. Pickles the pony, and even getting to ride him. The fresh eggs for breakfast and raw honey from the farm were such a thoughtful and personal touch. We are looking forward to returning soon and we highly recommend a visit.
