What a joy to arrive at this lovely, hidden oasis, go inside and find the log cabin that I had always wanted to have. Not just for a night but a lifetime. No I won't get to enjoy this Strawberry Suite for a lifetime, but just for a night was such a delight that I will be able to hold that feeling until I'm lucky enough to return.
Everything that you could possibly NEED, no TV, no INTERNET, no PHONE, but lets face it you don't REALLY need those things. As Mike, the owner, manager, builder, curator and husband of Henrietta, who really runs things, says, "you come here to relax and forget about all of that hassle and stress outside. You come here to get a fresh new start on life."
A fabulous tour of the grounds and different exhibits, reminds you of all of the hardships that our forefathers went through to bring us to this point, Now whether we're better off for it, that's up to each person to decide.
Also, the variety of animals is wonderful. Everything from Chickens to Lamas, to Sheep to Dogs and a Cat who likes to go for a ride on your shoulder.
An absolutely wonderful place for families to come together for reunion or celebration of any kind.
