Although the Mountain Horse Farm B&B is certainly a great romantic getaway in the country, it is also a wonderful place for families too! My two young children who grew up in the city always want to see what real horses looks like and here is an excellent opportunity for them to get close and personal. The owner Suzanne is very hospitable and brought my two children to the Stables where we can see them and feed them. There is an electric fence around the horse pens that you need to remind the kids, but they are clearly marked.
As a family of four, we stayed in the Morgan Suite on the second floor which consists of two joining rooms each with queen beds and a connecting private bathroom. The rooms and the private bathroom are very clean and beautifully decorated. So clean that you don't worry about the kids crawling on the floors. As we went in the middle of the week when there were no other guests, we also had the common breakfast room (also on the second floor) all to ourselves. This room is essentially a stunning living room with high end sofas and a big dining table. It's a very nice room to read a book, have coffee, or connect your laptop to their free WIFI to catch up on emails. For what we paid, it was a bargain considering we had the entire second floor to ourselves that night.
I would recommend this experience to any city dwelling family with young kids who yearn to get in touch with nature and horses. Although you cannot ride the horses, just seeing them in their natural environment and being able to pet them and feed them is an excellent experience in itself.
