Lovely private room in the converted barn with a gorgeous view of the farm and a great jacuzzi and separate bathroom with shower. Wonderful respite. This is not a bed and breakfast, simply a pleasant, homey place to stay and enjoy. Plan to eat elsewhere or bring a picnic blanket and pick up some food and coffee and enjoy the farm.
My husband and I stayed in the Herrington suite in the carriage house. We did not participate in any retreat activities and were totally on our own as a couple, not on any schedule, including being on our own for all meals since we were not part of any group. If you are a couple, you can choose a carriage house or a barn suite, depending on availability. It was just what we needed! It was so peaceful sitting on the deck outside of our bedroom watching the chickens, cats, pond, mountain mists, & all of the nature. There was a full kitchen in the suite & coffee & filters were provided for us to brew, along with bottled water, although their water is fine to drink. The king bed was so comfortable, (we actually bought a new mattress when we returned home) & the bathroom had a Jacuzzi, separate shower stall, & a bidet attached to the toilet! The linens & furnishings were lovely. We enjoyed going to some nice breakfast and dinner spots. We also enjoyed going to The Sip Side boutique bar in Oakland listening to live jazz one night, and walking some trails during the day at Swallow Falls Park. We came home revitalized and would definitely go back! If you book, and/or no availability shows, I recommend following up with email to Haley Farm if you have any questions. They answer in a timely manner. This place is not on the lake, but you don't need to be, because there are lots of activities all around!! I definitely recommend Haley Farm!!…
Our group came for a weekend wellness retreat. I didn't book the trip, so I had no idea what to expect other than the mention of yoga and a cooking class per our group's organizer. I cannot express enough how much I loved every minute! The farm itself is picturesque and relaxing. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Kam and Haley were inviting, encouraging and their cooking is absolutely amazing. I'm definitely putting those recipes to use! They gave us recommendations about local activities that we would enjoy including hiking and the local farmer's market. Everything was tailored to our group, I never felt pushed beyond my limits but comfortably challenged and I left the weekend feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and lighter than I have in a long time. Haley Farm is a gem!
Haley Farm is a beautiful and very special place, thanks to the surroundings and the lovely Haley and Kam who are your hosts. It is a perfect place for a girls weekend with the right amount of activities accessible on the farm itself as well as nearby. Loved the delicious food and the yoga and belly dancing classes. Look forward to coming back!
Hayley Farm is ideal as a quiet retreat, with its setting in peaceful meadows--dotted with bales of hay, wandering chickens, and two mellow (outdoors) cats sitting on the porch. Kam is the ideal hostess, easy-going, but on-point in ensuring guests' needs. The breakfasts are great: healthy and generous in variety and portions. Hayley is a superb yoga instructor, knowledgeable and able to adjust to one's level of practice. Be sure to request mist-enshrouded meadows for when you leave.
