We stayed at Horizon View Farms for one night while biking the Great Alleghany Passage. We had our 7 and 9 year old boys with us. The farm is a lovely place to stay for many reasons. The manager Darlene is a lovely person who made us very welcome and provided snacks, dinner, breakfast and a packed lunch, which were all very good. The owner Raphael happened to be there as well and we really enjoyed his telling us about the farm and the driving tour he gave us around the property. They set out all of the ingredients for smores which we made over the lovely outdoor fire pit. While sitting by the fire our kids enjoyed chasing a cat who was very interested in us and they were also amazed to see fireflies for the first time in their lives. The next morning they rode horses for the very first time. This is a great place for families and also a great place to stop along the bike trail.
