We went here for my birthday - there was 4 adults and 2 small children in our group. This bed and breakfast is unique in that it has some pretty spectacular animals - such as Ben, the Giraffe - that was bottle raised and loved vets to be petted. :-) They have nice, comfortable rooms and really they are quite...

We had a wonderful time !!!! The staff did everything to make our stay so nice !! The room, the tour of the animals, the breakfast. We hope to take our grandchildren when they come to visit. Staying as a guest you get one on one time feeding the Giraffes and kangaroos, the tour also takes you up front with... More

Beware, their customer service is horrible & it's a very sketchy place. We stayed the night at the B&B, and assessed us monetary damages we did not do. Their furniture/beds are very poor workmanship and they said we pulled the head boards in the kids' room off the wall. We were there for less than 15 hours and literally slept... More

We stayed in the B&B's Zebra family room:10% senior discount at check-in. Kathy was very helpful and attentive to our dietary needs and timing issues. Room cute and basic. It didn’t have shampoo or hairdryer, which would have been helpful. Great way to expose guests to animals. Kathy took us around in the evening. The kangaroos were a favorite, as... More

Our family went with 2 young kids and we enjoyed the Kangaroo pen. The staff was very friendly and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely go again. My young children definitely enjoyed feeding the animals. We did not stay overnight but the motel part seemed very nice.

This is a working farm specializing in exotic animals. Come with comfy clothes you don't mind a giraffe drooling on. :-) The lodging is nice and relaxed with inside viewing of the kangaroos even at night. Breakfast covered something for everyone and the large gathering room has games. There are a lot of extra features. There are planned tours when... More

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon and first anniversary and now we have 2 kids and we're heading back! So excited! Petting and feeding kangaroos is the best part! The Breakfasts were amazing and staff was so friendly!

Was so hoping to be able to use this facility for a family reunion. My first inquiry wasn't received and about 10 emails later I finally understand that it won't work for a small family reunion. The place is set up for tours only with no way to include extra daytime guests that don't stay the night. Only if you... More

Hedrick's Exotic Animal Farm Bed and Breakfast is a unique place to stay - a combination bed and breakfast and farm where they raise exotic animals for petting zoos, living nativity scenes, etc. Our family stayed for one night in August 2013, paying $214.30 total for the Savannah Room. It was easy to get to and parking was easy. There... More
