What is up with this place? Wrote them three times in July and never heard from them. Doublechecked I had their posted email addresss. Nada with my phone message too. Did they shut down? But web site still up. They lost my patronage. Too bad, because a friend had recmmended them from his 2011 visit.

I too emailed them and never heard back. Wrote, waited two weeks, wrote again. Nada. They still open? Found an alternative for country retreat.

We were interested in attending one of their events and coming out for an overnight visit. We emailed twice seven days apart, but didn't hear back at all (at least two weeks). And no error or undeliverable kickback message received. Wondered why there was no response and then gave up on using them.

Although the natural setting is nice and the hostess cooks a good meal it is not worth the price. The accommodations are not B&B quality. The workmanship of the home is shoddy and cobbled together. The trim work was especially haphazard. The carpet was installed piecemeal with many seams in our room. In short, your $80 per person buys you... More

Stayed overnight in 3-bedroom comfortable cabin (really a full service house) within huge Quaker wilderness preserve having view of deer by pond. Hiked miles of quiet trails. Saw a lot of wildlife, and many stars at night. Home-cooked meals were good and I could influence menu in advance. Kinda like a B&B. Very affordable. Especially good for solo travelers, small...
