I wanted to take our two kids (8 & 10) to a farm to experience something different than our typical beach trips we take. When I was about 10 I spent two weeks on my Uncles farm and those great memories are still with me nearly 35 years later. This place came highly recommended by a friend and the reviews were fantastic. The room was great. It was modern inside, yet had the charm of a century ago. We stayed for two days and we planned to stay on the farm the whole time (except for dinner). Our kids enjoy getting the eggs from the hen house and they even milked the cows. I was hoping they would have enjoyed the farms animals a little more, but the kitttens stole the show. The golf cart they have there for guests use was also a big hit with my son. The reviews of the breakfast set the bar extremely high, but although I enjoyed the breakfast, I was not blown away. Don't get me wrong, breakfast is very good there, but I did not get the same experience as the other guests who left reviews. Because we spent all the time at the Farm, a major factory in how much fun the kids will have is the other guests that are there. When we arrived, most of the kids were older (about 7 years old to teens) which was great for our family. The kids and adults have alot of fun playing basketball, etc. When we were leaving, there were infants/todlers. Babies crying is not what you want to hear on vacation (especially at a bed & breakfast where you are all so close) plus not many kids for my kids to play with. They have a great (FREE) game room with plenty to to do in the evening or when raining. They have air hockey, pool, ping pong, skeeball and shuffle board...all free. Our family had a wonderful time and plan to go back. As long as there are other kids close to my kids age, they will have a great time!

This is a place you'll go back to year after year. We do. Just relax on a working farm, take in the sights or visit HersheyPark. There's no lack of either relaxation or things to do. You'll be treated like visiting friends and family. But, don't delay, they sell out a year in advance.

I loved this time at the farm. The first day my daughter was not so excited but after that she simply loved the stay. It is a place which helps you de-stress. Loved it.

Our family visits this B & B annually and have been doing so for 11 years. Our children were small when our trips there began, now they are in college and high school and still LOVE the farm. This B & B trip is one our favorite family traditions. Thank you Eileen, Galen and Holly for your wonderful hospitality!

Our room was very spacious and clean-we had the Fireplace room. The home was very well kept and comfortable, the staff friendly and welcoming, and delicious breakfasts with plenty of food. The farm was amazing with lots of activities all included in your stay-hay ride each morning, pony rides, milk cows, pick eggs from hen house, kayacking, feed the goats, and more! Perfect family-friendly farm. We already booked for next year!

We stayed at Rocky Acre at the beginning of August and the stay far exceeded my expectations. The staff and other guests were so friendly that it felt that you were part of the family. It was so great for the kids to experience some aspects of farm life like collecting eggs and feeding the calves. We were even lucky enough to see a calf being born. My kids enjoyed playing with the other children, and there was so much to keep them occupied. I was so happy to see them get away from the electronic games. I can't wait to visit again!

Our 8-year-old grandson was really upset when he had to leave to go home! The children had a wonderful time.

We took our granchildren, ages 8 and 5 and spent three nights at Rocky Acre. It was so much fun and the children were thrilled. They loved the animals, the hayride, the pony ride, etc. They loved exploring the farm area and getting the eggs from the hen house. It is a great location for venturing out to Dutch Wonderland, Lancaster, and Cherry Crest Adventure Farm. Our stay couldn't have been better. Ray and Sue Kelton of East Brunswick, N.J.
