Wonderful country/farm getaway!

5 on April 17, 2015

I went to Rocky Acre Farm for the first time over Easter weekend. I took my teen-aged daughter and we both had an amazing time! The place is immaculate and comes with tons of great, free activities to do on-site! The room was VERY reasonably priced and includes breakfast. What we did: We milked cows (the B&B is on a dairy farm), fed goats, WATCHED A CALF BEING BORN(!), brushed a horse, played with kittens, took a hayride, drove a golf cart to a meadow, hung out by a stream and swung on a tire swing. What fun!! We could have taken out a kayak or canoe for free, but we're saving that for next time. The breakfast they serve was to die for. The staff were very sweet and some went way beyond the call of duty for us many times! We could not have been happier. I booked our next stay as soon as I got home. What a get-away from our city lives! We loved our room, the B&B house, the porch and all the swings, and the nice people we met. The rural setting is beautiful and close to many Amish farms, where you can get a buggy ride if you choose. We did a back roads tour that the Rocky Acre folks recommended and saw amazing Amish landscapes, one-room school houses, and lots more. I Highly recommend Rocky Acre for anyone - folks with small children, couples who don't take themselves to seriously, or parents with teens. if you want an escape from city life, this is the place for you. Remember it is a working Dairy farm and it has that 'farm smell', which I almost miss already. Hard to find availability in the summer here, but you can get on a cancellation list. I love Rocky Acre!


Can't wait to go back!

All I can say is that my husband went here as a child (and loved it) & we have just come back from taking our kids there. I was hesitant at first, because who knows how well its been maintained after 30 years. Well, WOW! It was such a special place. Not to be missed if you have small kids. The innkeepers are so sweet & the food and rooms were fantastic. Really can not wait to go back!


Rocky Acre rocks!!

We had the pleasure of staying at Rocky Acre for two nights after Easter this past month and we had an amazing time! I had known for some time that I wanted to do a farmstay vacation but was overwhelmed trying to select a farm. It was only when a friend overheard me talking about it and mentioned her experience at Rocky Acre that I found this outstanding location! Everything you read in the reviews is spot on! The rooms are SO CLEAN! The Breakfast is HUGE and SO YUMMY! The kids can do lots of farm "chores" and love to feel included. My only suggestion would be to have a more formal check in process as it did feel a bit odd to me to just be walking around not knowing who was a guest and who was a member of the B&B family but I was prepared for that from reading other reviews. This place is a must visit for families wanting to just unwind for a bit. It should also be noted that there are farm kittens all around and they are looking to be played with, so adorable!


Unforgettable experience!

We LOVE Rocky Acre Farm B&B! This was our second visit and we are already planning our next trip. The daily breakfast is outstanding and you genuinely feel like part of the family. This time was extra special because we got to experience the birth of a baby calf! This farm is a place for all ages and interests! A great family getaway!


A relaxing ,charming,well cared for, and Kid friendly B&B

Each day started with the most delicious breakfast ever with many different dishes to try and each one better than the last one. After breakfast there is pony ride, tractor ride and hayride. All throughout the day there are many animals to visit, milking of cows, petting area, gathering of eggs, and cuddling of kittens. Our visit was days of rain on & off and cold( for April), but it didn't stop us from doing whatever we wished to do. The game room was a hit and the driving of the golf cart was special to my grandsons. There are also many attractions in the area. We visited Strasburg railroad museum , Laser tag, Science museum.


A great weekend trip

Spent the last weekend with my family at the farm for the third time. My kids, ages 3 and 5, have so much fun here. Our room was great. We had the fireplace room with plenty of space for the four of us. The morning breakfast is fabulous. It's a big country breakfast with tons of food. You will never go hungry. Once breakfast is over, guests head outside for a pony ride, a train ride and a hayride. In addition, we fed a day old calf, a lamb and picked chicken eggs. There were several cows ready to give birth but none went into labor while we were there. We went to a bonfire and had smores at night. There is a game room we played in at night and my kids slept like babies all night long. As we left the farm at the end of our stay, I immediately put my request in for another weekend stay. It's a fun family place.


Terrific place for a family vacation!

Our family visited Rocky Acre on the 2015 opening weekend and had a great time, even though it was cold in the morning. The staff was amazing, especially with our young kids, and our accommodations were even better than mentioned in other reviews. On their first farm experience, our kids got to feed a baby lamb and calves, milk cows, ride the miniature horse, pet the goats, collect chicken eggs,and ride the train and tractor rides. They can't wait to come back!


Third Great Stay

5 on January 04, 2015

On this trip we stopped at the Farm to break up a long drive home after the holidays with family and a quick triip to Hershey Christmas Candy Lane -- it was our first winter stay. Kids played with the kitties, used the updated game room (ping pong, air hockey and shuffle board) - t we saw a calf being born - a first for all of us - and enjoyed the huge farm breakfast.


Another great stay

5 on December 15, 2014

This is our third stay at the Rocky Acre Farm Bed and Breakfast! Everyone had an amazing time and the children (7y and 4y) look forward to the next time we will be "At the Farm". They got to feed the goats and collect eggs from the chickens, ride on the horse and enjoy the camp fire! We will be back!
