Our youth group of ten had the joy of spending the night at Verdant View Bed and Breakfast, and I mean it when I say that it was a JOY! We arrived at 11:00 p.m. on Friday night, and were immediately greeted by a gaggle of kittens approaching our vehicles. The rooms were comfortable with a sink in each room. Because of our number, we had a cot in the room and I am still wondering how the owners got that huge cot up the stairs!
In the morning, our youth were up at 5:30 because, "the kittens are waiting for us!" By 7:00, our youth were taking turns milking a cow, bottle feeding baby cows and hand feeding chickens. The tour of the farm was exceptional, and the breakfast superb!
Because it was a beautiful day, we enjoyed breakfast on the wagon at 8:30. Blackberry and cream cheese stuffed french toast, fried cheese, yogurt with blackberry sauce, kale quiche, sausage, and apple pumpkin spice muffins made us feel like we were in heaven. All of the cream used came from the cows on the farm, and the vegetables had been grown in the garden that we could see from the wagon. Following breakfast, we rode the wagon through the farm and our youth learned a great deal.
I can't recommend this experience enough for a family with young children, for scout troops and for youth groups. It was wonderful!
