Returned home last night from a wonderful stay at Country Girl at Heart Farm Bed & Breakfast. Our hostess Darlene was great ... very gracious and filled with lots of interesting stories! We had a mini-family reunion (4 of the 7 females in the family) and a great time was had by all including the almost 2 year old. The rooms were lovely from the large family area in the lower floor (ping pong, puzzles, large screen TV, kids toys, treadmill, and much more) to the great room and dining room, to our lovely private bathroom and bedroom, plus adjoining bedroom. The grounds provided lots of beauty and fun too ... helping feed the 100+ chickens, gather eggs, feed bunnies and horses all made for an authentic learning experience for the kids and the adults! Almost forgot to say ... breakfasts were great also! It was fun to share a wonderful meal with the other guests and the food was really yummy from the farm fresh eggs to the fabulous blueberry-sausage casserole - a recipe Darlene wrote out and shared with all of us. And Darlene even made the breakfasts a learning experience by explaining about charger plates and having the children and ladies go first. I am so glad we picked this wonderful B & B!
