The SpaceYou will have a bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bedroom with a twin bed, bathroom, laundry room, kitchenette with a fridge, toaster, and microwave (NO oven or stove), and living room with big windows, a fireplace, television, your own private treadmill, and a full pull-out sofa bed. You will also have access to all 10 acres of my farm, 90 acres of beautiful hiking trails right off my property, your own patio with a fire pit and Weber grill, and easy parking.
You will have your own private entrance, but our spaces are connected through an open-air staircase. I live upstairs and your space is in the lower level of my house. I do my very best to respect your peace and quiet, but please understand that I do live here, and sound sometimes travels up and down the stairs. However, I NEVER enter your space while you are visiting, unless of course you need something (I am always right up the steps or hanging around the farm if you need me for anything whatsoever!). Guest AccessGuests have a private entrance and can come and go at their leisure. You are welcome to tour my 10-acre property or take the path off my land onto 90 acres of hiking trails. I have goats, horses, chickens, two small & friendly dogs and an outdoor cat. There's a pretty stream running through the back of my property just 20 feet from your apartment doorstep, and a pretty pond just over the bridge. There is also a big, beautiful pond in the front pasture. You have a private patio with your own fire pit, Weber grill and outdoor seating area looking out over the stream and the little "island" out back. Walk the short trail right across the bridge to see the horse pasture, or relax next to the pond while you read a book. It's quiet, peaceful and private. Interaction with GuestsI'm usually here all day, working around my farm. I'm happy to help out with directions, give tours around my farm, and introduce you to all my animals. I can teach you to properly feed a horse with your bare hands, and I'm happy to introduce you to my very friendly and curious goats if you're so inclined. Come collect eggs with me in the evening, or light a fire in your private fire pit and relax while listening to the frogs sing.
If you have any questions or concerns during your visit, please let me know! I'm always available via text or phone call, and you can even just come find me around the farm.

Nighttime walks and stargazing are heartily encouraged! I provide a camp lamp for your midnight stroll and cozy blankets for a quiet evening around your fire pit. There are no streetlights out here so bring your telescope and count the stars!
This is a great place for kiddos! There are lots of animals to visit, ponds to play in, and lots of space outside to set up a tent if your teen wants to camp out! I have a soccer ball, a basketball, squirt guns, board games, etc. However, please keep an eye on your children at ALL TIMES as there are hot-wires, unfenced waterways, and loose animals on the farm. It is your responsibility to keep your children safe.
I've had several inquiries about hosting weddings/parties at my farm. At this time, I am not set up for large gatherings and cannot accommodate weddings or parties larger than 5 people (....7 if you're willing to do air mattresses; by special request only. Please inquire directly).
