We're a family of 4 (with 2 teenaged girls) who recently stayed in the log house. It was perfect for our needs, the beds were comfortable it was great having a kitchen to make meals in (although there was no microwave, something that a family with infants and toddlers should note).
Jeanne-Marie was a great host, and encouraged us to walk around the farm. We talked to some of the farmhands, and heard about how they cultivate lots of different kinds of fruits and vegetables.
