So much fun!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome place for a weekend getaway with the family. We brought my 11 year old step daughter and we all really enjoyed ourselves. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton and chocolates on your pillow, then this will probably not be a good fit. Definitely NOT for the family that spends their vacation in a hotel room watching tv. But, if you are looking for a place to shower and sleep in a clean bed after a day of playing outside, this is the place for you! It's almost like glamping, but with more amenities. And the farm animals...that was what we really came for and we weren't disappointed. There were horses to ride, cows to pet, dogs to play with, and chickens, goats, pigs and ducks to hold! It is really was a lot of fun! I will be recommending this place to my friends and we will be back!

Okay

  • 2 of 5

It was cute, but overall not what I expected. Meaning the cottage was "new" as stated on the website, but although not a huge deal, when we arrived the fridge was off and the air conditioner, when they knew we were coming, it was like 85 degrees, and it was failed to mention that it was not completed. The loft was not finished, the bathroom floor was not grouted, well water (I was ok w/that but what if other folks aren't, that should be stated), there's no privacy b/c the cottage is right next door to the guest house. I originally wanted to book the cabin, but was told it wasn't available, and then the folks that had it this weekend were many, it was difficult to get out (like 20/30 cars) so not much getting away from the city life. Then we decided to take a walk down the long drive-way, thinking it's private and that no cars would be coming through, so in walking with our 4 children, here comes a mustang speeding down the road, which could have been a devastating outcome if we (the walkers) were not paying attention. We were told we could assist w/the chores, and I've been to farms, however where you milk the cow or want to see the animals, the smell of urine is so profound it seems like chores are not getting done, and with guest staying, and paying, you would think that this would be in better upkeep condition. Yet the animals did look healthy, but the poor horses were in the stalls, and so we didn't get the "free open" country farm environment. At any event just wanted to share b/c based on what I personally read and experienced is far from what I expected, but one lives and learns.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback as we are always wanting to fix any issues or problems that are found with our rentals. We do apologize for any issues you may have had. Having the fridge and the A/C off was an oversite that has been fixed, as for the bathroom floor not being grouted, I am at a loss since I wasn’t able to find the tile area that wasn’t grouted. As we are located outside of city limits with no access to city water, yes, we are on a well, but the water that is located within the cottage is processed. It was unfortunate that your weekend coincided with a movie production being on property. I do need to point out that your reservation was for two (2) adults and three (3) children not the four (4) children that you brought and pointed out within your review. This not only cheated us and VRBO, but is also fraud and against the law. I also need to point out that both on the VRBO listing and our website that the “Farm” and the Rentals are separate entities and at no time did you purchase any of the animal interaction packages. Our animals are consistently monitored by Animal Care Technicians and are exercised and allowed to roam the pasture on a specific schedule for their protection and health. The animal pens, stalls and milking area are checked and cleaned daily by farm staff. As you said, this is far from what I expected, but one lives and learns.

We enjoyed the open space.

  • 2 of 5

The adult daughter was warm and inviting. She let us milk the cow and showed us around the farm. I enjoyed the animals, including the squirrels, they were entertaining. The hammock was very comfortable. The guest house was very clean, but lacked a sit down eating area. The owners are very busy and came across a bit cold. However, the daughter made us feel welcome!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your constructive criticism, but not your rating because as was discussed with you both by message, phone and in person , your arrival was not only on a day that the farm was closed, but on "Easter" Sunday. We made special arrangements to accommodate your arrival and explained that we would be available on Monday for Farm visits.You were invited to experience the farm life but must understand that milking the cow is only one of the many things that are performed by family and staff during the normal morning and afternoon feedings. We portray the farm as a laid back, "quiet" place to visit where we allow you to come and go without being obtrusive. This is actually the perfect place to come for quiet or pick out one of our "Farm Experience" packages to get the whole farm life experience.

Wonderful memories

Sonya was a great hostess! Our family had a wonderful time feeding the animals. Accommodations are rustic and give you a great feeling that you are truly having a farm adventure. We will be talking about our trip for many years to come.
