My husband and I stayed here in September as part of my annual "relax before Christmas" routine. I'm a retail worker and when I make a September trip, I'm looking for peace and quite.
We found all of that and more. We stayed in the Bunkhouse, which is very rustic and situated in such a way that although it right next to the petting farm, it was still private. We could view the neighbor's beautiful pond if we walked to the edge of our "yard".
The property isn't wide but rather runs straight back, so it wasn't as isolated as I had hoped...but then again, on these trips the moon probably wouldn't be isolated enough for me.
Diane was wonderful and we really enjoyed the gardens and animals. She did everything she could to make our trip a success.
My only complaint, and this is in no way the fault of the owners, is that the neighboring property literally ran right against our cabin and they hosted a wedding the weekend we were there. Friday was listening to the hammering while they put up a large tent and numerous trips up and down the gravel road right in front of our cabin. Saturday was once again numerous trips on the gravel road as well as the wedding. The band that played the reception (under the white tent) was possibly the worst I've ever heard and they were loud! They started at 6 and fortunately finished at 10:15, but somehow the night seemed so much longer. The thumping actually vibrated things in our cabin.
When I read that this was a guest farm I was afraid it would be a very community oriented type of thing and it can be if you want it to be. Or, if you want to be hermits like we did most of the time, Diane is very sensitive to that and leaves you to your own devices while remaining available if you need her.
We'll definitely stay here again. We loved sitting in the rockers on the porch watching the fat squirrels prepare for winter, cuddling with one of the cats who took a liking to us, and really enjoyed the hot tub.
