My wife and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary here. The whimsical eclectic decor, the
eco friendly farm environment was creatively inspirational. The breakfast was exquisitely prepared by the owner "Darlene". Her stories, laughter and energy are infectious, captivating and
comforting. Memories of childhood summers on my grandparents farm came flooding back to me as we enjoyed each others company in the quiet. Each room has a story and every nook and cranny is filled with treasures to be discovered. The local activities, Amish markets and small town
stores spaced within 10 to 20 minutes of the farm are fascinating.
We gathered eggs, fed the horses, chickens and experienced a side of life that the city doesn't offer. I highly recommend spending the week. We only had two days and though we had the most relaxing enjoyable time, we discovered that there was more to do and explore than two days would allow. We plan to return soon, bringing our grand children. We want them to share the friendly atmosphere the farm provides and see that there is more to living life than computers, cellphones, and television. Highly recommend for couples, families, or those who just need to get away.
