There are no bell man or help to your room. However the front desk woman helped me but I felt bad asking her to help me. Also there are canoes for the pond but I was alone so couldn't turn them over to put in pond to enjoy. Also there is only breakfast so you have to get in your... More

We stayed at a cabin at Half Mile farm for one night. We asked to move to a courtyard room the next day. They graciously complied and we were so happy with the change. That evening we received the devasting news that our 6 year old grandson had been diagnosed with leukemia. We were distraught and threw everything into our... More

First visit to Half Mile Farm and the grounds are quite lovely. We stayed at the end of June for husband's birthday. The main Inn was sold out so we stayed in the Blacksmith Cabin. Grey checked us in; very sweet young man but he seemed a little overwhelmed and someone else should've been helping in. He said he was... More

If you just want to relax and get away from it all, this little inn should be at the top of your list. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the property an upscale touches like Frette linens and Molton Brown bath amenities. The grounds are beautiful (complete with lake and canoes, grape vines and fruit trees). It is located... More

This is a great escape. The grounds were wonderful and the room was awesome. We enjoyed walking the gardens and sitting by the pond just relaxing. This is not like the run of the mill B&B. We enjoyed it more since the owner was not on site and Gray made us feel like we owned the place. He met us... More

My husband does NOT like to stay in a typical B&B. I made reservations at Half Mile Farm on the spur of the moment and what a pleasant surprise!!

Perfect place to relax and regroup. From the warm greeting when registering and the casual, but charming introduction to our room, we just exhaled from that point on. The pond was the perfect oasis to just read, reflect and ponder without distractions. The breakfast.....worth every calorie. Will be back again.

The grounds are lovely and the staff is wonderful. The room was neither lovely nor wonderful. Everything that could go wrong, did. From the wrong remote for the TV to the safe not working to the floor being so unlevel that we couldn't put items on the chest of drawers without them rolling off onto the floor. The bathroom door...

We stayed in the Captain cabin and it was awesome. 2 story, very clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed including dishes, many amenities (robes, bedroom slippers,etc).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For guests of age 18 and over, Half-Mile Farm is that place where you relax as soon as you drive onto the property. A hilly expanse of green lawn welcomes you, and the main historic farmhouse reveals itself at the crest. Along the drive, Apple Lake glistens and offers canoes along its shore for guests to enjoy a soothing paddle. A chef-prepared breakfast begins each day for every guest, and evenings bring complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft beverages to enjoy with other guests or to take to your own little corner of the farm. A seasonal outdoor heated pool, grape arbor, vegetable garden and apple trees all cascade along the grounds. ... more   less
