We spent three nights over Xmas and had a fantastic time. Six of us stayed in the old farm house which was wonderfully decorated. The farm is on a quiet side road very near a number of great river attractions. We biked on day, and went on a trip down one of the nearby rivers. The hosts are wonderful people... More

Cabins are "manufactured trailers", very small in all aspects. Shower so small kids could touch ceiling. "Large pond" is maybe 25 feet across and 2 feet deep. Bridge they mention to fish off of for catfish is about 12 feet long. Breakfast is packaged muffins and instant grits, oatmeal from Walmart. Website does not match your stay. Beware

We are very heartened by a rather odd review by Joe. With the greatest respect, please allow us to tell the entire story. We offer four different lodgings. Two are very well maintained "Park Model" cabins----the same as those used at Fort Wilderness in Orlando, and renting for $250 daily. At $99 and $119, they are the on-site "bargain". They... More

The cabin is historic with original fixtures, we took... More

We were fortunate to witness a birth of... More

We had group of family and friends that stayed in the farmhouse over the Labor Day Weekend using it as a base for some of the local springs and had a great time. Not fancy, but clean, comfortable and homey. Emily was very helpful in guiding us about the local area and pointing out all the things to do there.... More

The use of the BBQ area is also possible and we could also feed the donkey, cows and other animals. The owners were very friendly and helpful, gave us good... More
