Best Place Ever!

I have been coming to Rocky Acre farm for years and it always gets better each year. Thanks to ALL the Benner family for your hard work.


Another wonderful stay

This was our third stay at Rocky Acre and it did not disappoint. From the farm animals to the river to the fun of riding around bikes and tractors, the farm offers it all in a welcoming, beautiful setting. The breakfasts are huge and accommodating to all palates, the rooms are tidy, and we will be back next year!


Stands the test of time

We have been visiting Rocky Acres since 1986. Every time is just as relaxing as the last. The breakfast table is even better, as everyone has more time for fellowship, always fun to hear which animal is the favorite (almost always the cats!) and how long you have been visiting. This farm B&B is a sure thing.


Family Friendly Farm

The inn keepers and staff were great. We especially enjoyed Jason, the farm helper who took the kids and families on the train and hay ride. This is the perfect place for children. You must enjoy being on a farm. The smell of manure is a little over whelming at first but by the next day we didn't really notice it anymore. We stayed in the "apartment" room and it was perfect in every way. Speaking of perfect, you will LOVE the breakfast. Delicious and PLENTIFUL. The hot chocolate is amazing! We took our 14 month old here and she loved the animals. There is a pony in the meadow named "Cupcake" whom she won't stop talking about :) We definitely would like to return again.

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.


Great Place to Stay With Kids!

LOVE MY FARM!

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!

Wonderful country/farm getaway!

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!
