Farmstay offers individuals or families the opportunity to experience "farmer for a day" or to find that place of peace and renewal for body, mind and spirit. Built circa 1850, the farmhouse maintains it original charm with comfort upgrades. We have kept our beautiful bankbarn and have sustainalbly managed our natural based pastures and wooded areas and livestock(chickens,horses,cows,goats,sheep,rabbits) and assorted barn cats and working dogs to provide a full scope farmstay experience. For those with pet allergies,please be aware that two cats reside in the farmhouse.

We were immediately welcomed to be an active part if the animal farming operation: milking cows and goats, feeding animals, gathering eggs. Plenty of time to relax and participate as we wanted. Staff is really available to educate, answering questions and doing extra things to make the stay fun and educational. I recommend bringing a packed lunch/dinner unless you want to drive out to a nearby town to eat out. Be prepared to get dirty and be outside. Our 4 AnD 1 1/2 year led loved it.

If you want a clean room to sleep in and updated bathroom...this is the place for you. If you want a bug free, web free barn, and beautiful green pastures...this is not the place for you. For heaven's sake this is a REAL farm. We had a blast. My grandson worked 12 hour days doing his chores. Feeding all the animals, milking the goats, hey, he wouldn't even stop to eat dinner, at 7 PM, because he wasn't done milking. Not only did he learn the magic and importance of a farm, he now wants to be a farmer. AND when we got home he asked his suburban parents for chores. It's been two weeks since our two night farm stay and he is still talking about. Did I mention that he is only 4? Well done Nana! Thank you Farmer Kathy and farmhand Bridget for an extraordinary experience.

I stayed in the RV during a recent visit to PA. The farm is gorgeous and peaceful and filled with animals of every kind. Everyone is very friendly and Kathy, the hostess, went WAY out of her way to ensure that I had a good experience. The breakfasts are phenomenal. Very unique experience, good value, and I will be back soon!

We had a great time doing real farm work and interacting with the animals. Very interactive and genuine experience. Great for kids. Yummy farm breakfast made from eggs we gathered that morning.

We had a wonderful weekend at Flint hill farm. If you are just looking for a B&B I'm sure there are better once out there but if you are looking to experience life on the farm, this is totally the right place. Our 3 y/o assisted with milking cows and goats, gathering and feeding the horses, taking care of a newborn calf , collecting eggs and more. Kathy the owner and the entire staff were were extremely pleasant and hospitable. We are definitely coming back.

Our stay at the Flint Hill Inn will not soon be forgotten. We were thoroughly impressed with the picturesque country setting and fell in love with the genuine hospitality. You are encouraged to walk the farm and take in all that the many acres has to offer. It is truly an experience. We had a great time interacting with the horses, cows, ducks, lambs, and farm cats. This was a much better choice than a chain hotel. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a country-setting getaway. And their homemade cheeses are superb!

The farm is big and if you have kids it's a great way for them to get in touch with lots of animals. We fed the goats and chickens, collected eggs each day, they went on a pony ride, played with the cats and rabbit, we took a walk in the forest and picked wild berries, they made fresh yogurt and smoothies. The only problem i had is that there was a lot of cat's hair in the house, in the bedrooms, living room, kitchen, everywhere, which made it very hard for me to relax. Other than that it's a great location, there is a cave 10 minutes away from the town and Crayola Experience half an hour away.

My best friend and I took our boys (5 & 6) to Flint Hill Farm Stay to reconnect and spend some time away as they are growing so fast. We were greeted by the owners sweet granddaughter as she walked us through the beautiful farm house, up to our cozy room. Gavin, the owner's grandson took us for a private tour of the farm as we got to know each animal by name. As he told us stories about each animal, we noticed his contagious smile that reflected how much he loved his work and time on the farm- so rare and nice to find. After a long peaceful rest, we woke up to a gorgeous breakfast of freshly made butter, cream cheese, eggs, toast, pancakes, yogurt and fresh fruit. It was heavenly. Next Gavin and his crew took us around the farm as we helped bring in the horses and cows as well as feed the chickens and collect eggs (the boys favorite part). Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. It was really a sweet place to visit- we were so happy we got to spend time with the gentle and caring souls that tend to the prosperous farm. We will be back soon for sure! Next time we will bring the girls!!!

My stay at Flint Hill Farm was truly special...full of experiences I don't think I could have had at many other B&Bs. Kathy and everyone else at the farm was so welcoming and accommodating, wanting to make sure that everything was just right and that the stay was more than just a place to sleep and eat. What a terrific opportunity!

Room: For our family of 4, we were in a room with 2 single beds and 2 single cots. It's been a wet summer, so everything felt a bit damp. Definitely not the comfort of a hotel. The second night we turned on the window AC unit which helped. Bathroom is modern and nice, shared with another room. They have toys in the house for the kids, which was great. Service: Saturday morning we all took a tour and the 6-year-old helped with farm chores. Gavin, the owner's grandson, was a great tour guide! My son absolutely loved it. Value: It's not particularly cheap to stay here, and you'll be charged for the farm experience (doing chores) as well. Cleanliness: No complaints! Just know that there are cats and dogs in the house, so bring your allergy meds if you react to those animals. Dining: The farm breakfast is amazing. So many delicious local foods prepared for you in the morning! There's also a farm store (that takes credit as well) so you can take some goodies home with you! Lovely setting, great experience, nice people! Thanks!
