A place of escape!

5 on July 22, 2013

My husband and I NEEDED a getaway! And I don't just mean a hotel getaway. I mean away from the things of this life that consume us daily. I was looking for a secluded place of rest and peace for my body, mind, soul, and spirit. I didn't take my cell phone, lap top, or even turn on the t.v.! I was looking for a place of stillness and quite. I FOUND exactly what I was looking for in "Our Fathers Haven". As soon as I drove up the driveway I felt all worriess, anxiety, and confussion leave me! Peace flooded my heart and clearity came in. The rooms were so clean and perfectly made like "home". I have never ever stayed at such a clean place in my life. The breakfast they cook for you is amazing! This family really takes pride in what they do and the go over and beyond to make sure you are well taken care of during your stay. The nature that is attracted to this place is unbelievable. We saw 7 or more humming birds eating and playing as we rocked on the porch. We watched their horses graze in the fields and at night we watched about 4 deer come out and graze in the evening. We went on a canoe ride down the Withlacoochee River courtesy of "Our Fathers haven". So refreshing being in nature and relaxing the way God intended it be. I encourage everyone that is looking for a place of peace to rest your mind to PLEASE consider "Our Fathers Haven".


Our Father's BLESSING!

5 on April 16, 2013

My husband & I wanted to get away from our busy lives, get some R&R, and most importantly, spend time with the Lord and with each other. We got all that and more at Our Father's Haven B&B. Neither of us had ever stayed at a B&B, and in the past when we took a trip it was never in a remote area...so when we pulled up to OFH we really didn't know what to expect and honestly, we were kind of uncomfortable! Those uneasy feelings were immediately dismissed as we were greeted like old friends by Joanne. She welcomed us, gave us a tour and then took us to our room. We were pleasantly surprised at the large room and all the amenities. They have truly thought of everything. It was so clean, cozy & comfortable. After that we met Gary & daughter Melissa who were a delight. We spent a lot of time on the porch in the rocking chairs with a cup of coffee & our Bibles or a good book. Restaurants in the area were good but they had nothing on the delicious breakfast that was served each morning! From homemade blueberry pancakes to hashbrown casserole the food was great and the fellowship around the table was even more amazing. During the day, whether we wanted to hike, canoe, play ping-pong, ride horses or just sit and enjoy the wild deer, horses or cattle grazing in the field, we were never bored. The testimony that the MacIntosh family shares is an amazing testament to our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. He truly has anointed this family with the gift of Hospitality and has purposed Our Father's Haven to be a place of rejuvenation and nourishment for those who need to be filled. Thank you Gary & Joanne for following His call on your lives. You have blessed us tremendously and we pray many blessings on you, your family and your ministry! Love~ The Streckers

You don't have to ride to enjoy Our Father's Haven

Stayed for a night in early April. What a relaxing place! Very quiet, off the traffic ways. Spacious room with an excellent bed. Very nice amenities, GREAT omlet for breakfast and muffins that taste like donuts (this is good by the way!). The screened porch is an added benefit. I travel for business and the paperwork was perfect for expense processing. Had a super night's sleep and got the day started in excellent fashion. The proprietors are friendly, helpful, and excellent cooks. Hoping to bring my wife for a couple of days of serenity and relaxation.


Great anniversary getaway!

5 on January 28, 2012

We had a wonderful, but all too brief stay at OFH to celebrate our anniversary. Gary and Joanne were excellent hosts and made our visit very special. We had originally been drawn to the area for the State Bike trail, but when we read that OFH had a canoe for use, we knew that's what we wanted to do. The river was beautiful, and Gary was so kind to provide transport and make the canoe trip hassle-free. In the afternoon, we enjoyed some of the many hiking trails nearby, with the forest conveniently located right across the street. So much to do, so little time. The rooms were clean and spacious, the food and amenities were plentiful, the area was quiet and beautiful and we hope to return one day. Thanks for a memorable anniversary. :) Heather and Cam
