Where to begin...John and Valerie are excellent hosts! Upon arrival a tour of the homestead and grounds took place. The home is very well kept and Val and John have worked hard to maintain the atmosphere of days gone by.
This was a mom and daughter get-a-way and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.
We took part in Bygone Basics' pastry class on Friday evening. We made Depression Era Apple pies that turned out beautifully. This was followed up by a fantastic dinner made by Valerie.
On Saturday we took part in a Chocolate and Biscotti class with six new friends. It was so much fun (not to mention delicious)!
The breakfasts served on Friday, Saturday and Sunday were all very different. The extent that Val goes through to provide a unique meal does not go unnoticed. Val makes her own butter, cheese and yogurts (just to mention a few). So much is self-sustained.
The true tell of a good experience is: Would you do it again? ABSOLUTELY!
My daughter was so impressed with my choice of our get-away she is also looking forward to a repeat visit. Thank you Val and John!
