Great place to stay when needing or wanting a serene backdrop. Lots to do on the farm, and yet plenty of places to be still and relax. Galen and Eileen are gracious and make you feel at home.

I cannot say enough about Rocky Acre and the Benner family. My family has been visiting for about 20 years, from when the kids were in preschool. They are teens and twenties, but we keep coming, because it's like coming home! So now we come with friends, some with young children, and everyone has a great time on the farm! The kids enjoy kid-friendly activities, and the adults enjoy the relaxation. The Benners are amazing hosts! The game room is a nice addition, too. All the reviews tell the story...great place, great people, great fun!

What an amazing few days. From the bountiful breakfast, to the fun morning activities, my family had a wonderful time at Rocky Acres. Great recommendations of local things to do and beautiful well kept accommodations. We will be back! Highly recommend for families.

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!

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!

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!

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!
