We stayed at the Butternut Farm B&B recently when in town for a family wedding. You turn from the road into the fenced property and are immediately greeted by chickens and goats. We were lucky enough to arrive shortly after the birth of the newest member of the Butternut Farm goat family - an adorable little lady named Chloe.
We stayed in the barn apartment and were pleasantly suprised at the privacy and the size. The bedroom has a small table with chairs, a canopied full-sized bed and a TV with VCR and DVD capabilities. WARNING: There is no cable - just rabbit ears. The kitchen is a nice size and the bathroom is nothing glamourous, but has plenty of hot water and elbow room. (If you are a fan of larger towels, bring along your own...)
Outside the bedroom sliding doors there is a lovely patio with seating for four. I spent part of my morning there reading and enjoying the dozens of birds in the yard. (As well as the goats and chickens!)
Breakfast was delicious both mornings. Served family style we enjoyed wheat toast with homemade balckberry and peach jams, goat cheeses and sausage omlettes made with Don's Butternut Farm Herb Mixture (DELICIOUS!), homemade goat cheese and fresh (as in that morning) eggs. Delicious coffee, juice and great conversation with our host and fellow guests topped off the meal.
Commenting on some remarks made in other reviews...
The B&B is a farm and there is some clutter, cats and animals. Is it dirty? NO. Just a little dusty and while I was initially put off by this, the charm of the Inn, the friendliness of your host, Don Ried and the wonderful history of the property make a little dust worth overlooking.
Overall, this was a very fun experience and I would recomend staying at the Butternut Farm. (And if you do, say hello to Chloe for me!)
