My Happy Place

Greg and Bill are wonderful hosts. The farm is a pleasure and wonderful learning experience. I'm an animal lover and a lover of nature. I would highly recommend a stay at this B&B if you are into a relaxing, peaceful experience.

A true escape!

There is "real" place to unwind, unplug and return to the way things were meant to be. Peace, Harmony, Nature, and Music. A very special place indeed without cell phones, IPads or Wi-Fi invading the environment. The Breakfast is unsurpassed, organic, gluten free, pure, healthy. This farm is a gift from heaven and every human and animal knows it, feels it and honors it. Return to what is important in life. Return to you, just you, filled with world of joy and nurturing.

My wife and I have a small homestead and are trying to learn how to manage it in an environmentally sensitive way. We were looking for a BandB to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and we wanted something more than just a few nights in a fancy facility. Bill and Greg provided just what we were looking for: nice room, good food, quiet, and an encouragement for us as we seek to better manage our own farm.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review and support for our Bed & Breakfast! It is guests like you two which tell us we are indeed serving a higher purpose!

Unique Farm B&B Experience

5 on February 20, 2017

Our stay at NaVera Farms made our Valentine's Day wedding anniversary one to remember. Bill and Greg's home is beautiful and restful; conversation and a sincere desire to make our stay special was evident. Our morning farm tour with Curtis was wonderful as we met animals by name and a history of how each came to reside here. We would highly recommend NaVera Farms to anyone looking to truly disconnect and enjoy nature.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your support of NaVera Farms Bed & Breakfast! We hope to see you again someday!
