My husband and I spent two wonderful nights at the farm, including Christmas. This was our second time back, and while we enjoyed our first visit, this time was even better than we remembered. Not only is the setting idyllic, but the other guests were soon fast friends and Maggie's breakfasts scrumptious. We had the Wyoming Room during our first stay. It has a fireplace but we were charmed by Sweet Violet, especially the first evening when the bathroom window framed a grazing deer, twice. For animal lovers, which we are, Whistlewood is such a treat: the horses, donkeys, cats and of course 'Jake' make Whistlewood more than a B&B, they make it a warm, enchanting place anytime of the year. For someone like me, who has had horses in the past, another huge plus is the pristeen conditions in which the horses are kept. Nothing has been left to chance, everything is well thought out, all to help ensure the safety and happiness of the horses lucky enough to call Whistlewood home. We look forward to our next visit!
