I booked a private sleigh ride for my boyfriend and I to celebrate his birthday... The ride was pretty, the staff were friendly but the bottom line is that it cost us $120 for a 30 minute ride. In fairness, this did include a $20 "romance package" consisting of a few chocolates and small serving of champagne but overall, I... More

We try to provide a variety of price points for everyone's budget. The romance special is our deluxe package that includes hand dipped chocolates by a local chocolatier and a split of champagne with fury blankets and private Victorian... More

The horseback tour of the farm was fantastic. The views of the Mountains are like no other in the area. The farm is beautiful with a great trail ride. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time on our private sleigh ride through the snow covered paths at the Farm by the River. They take you down by the Saco River either by one horse drawn carriage or a pair of horses pulling your group. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Sue helped us through our reservation and let us sit... More

A group of six family members did the 45 minute big red sleigh ride yesterday. The weather was less than ideal which is not the owners fault, but our total ride was less than 20 minutes around the property and not the 45 minute ride that was advertised. We were told to arrive 30 minutes prior to our departure time... More

We had a GREAT time! The carriage was very comfortable. Bob the horse made it a smooth ride. The scenery was amazing. The driver was very friendly. We enjoyed the stories. We could tell how passionate the humans were for their animal friends. Highly recommended!!!

Hard to tell about dislikes. The wranglers were of the best. A group of women I understand handle all those horses and they are amazing. They treat them very, very well. Negative, I would really love to be able to run the horses for just a bit during the ride. I know my horse wanted to as well!

I have been wanting to take this trail ride for years, and finally got around to it today. Excellent experience. Safe horses, competent guide, and stunningly beautiful trail along pastures and the Saco River. Knowing this property has been in the same family for over 200 years, and was a land grant in 1771 by the King makes it even... More

This farm is quaint and very well tended. The owners and farmhands are very much in tuned to every horse on the farm. I love how they hand pick each horse for each rider making it an enjoyable experience. The ride is very scenic from mountains to rivers and green pastures. I disagree with the last review "just average"....The reviewer... More

Pluses: - this farm owns their own horses and it shows. We had the first trip out on a hot day and they were cancelling afternoon rides for concern of the animals. - the staff was attentive and helpful. At one point, my daughters saddle was loose and it was immediately tightened. Minuses: - we appeared to stay on property... More
