I stayed here with my two children, 9 and 6, who had never experienced farm or mountain life, as they grew up in FL. It was very remote and quiet, and the cabins were comfortable, clean, and stocked, but not luxurious, which was fine. Considering the price, it was a very fair value. The pedal boats were somewhat decrepit, but it added a bit of adventure to the pond. Luckily, the pond is very shallow and my kids were wearing crocs!
The kids LOVED doing chores in the morning and evening and made sure to save lots of leftovers and peelings from dinner for the chickens. I enjoyed the freedom of letting my kids run somewhat free on the farm to play and explore. A real treat for them to have some freedom. We hiked in the mountains, and caught lightning bugs at night.
Sally, the owner, was wonderful with the children and went out of our way to help us find local produce for cooking and interesting activities in the area.
My kids want to do this every year. It was a very low-key and peaceful type of vacation and allowed us to connect in a very different way than other vacations have.
