I had to leave negative feedback, but we booked 2 nights, but left after the first night. Breakfast was not what we had read in previous reviews. (Pancakes were made 3 at a time and were burnt - there were 10 people at the table. Bacon was so undercooked, no bread or muffins, etc. as we had heard were good.) There was 3 piles of doggie doo on the living room floor, but we were expected to remove our shoes when entering the house. It could have been a great experience, but the Owner was too busy, she needs help! (We were told we had to pay for the 2nd night because we did not give 48 hours notice - how could we, when we didn't know it would be like this.) We booked the camper, but couldn't use the toilet or shower. We have owned 4 travel trailers, so we know how to care for them. Sorry, but we don't want someone else to experience what we did. We do, however, feel this would be a good educational facility for a 'daily' visit.
I am truly very sorry you are continually so unhappy about the billing since your August 4-6th reservations. However, please let me again review (as I explained to you the morning of August 5th) that we have a written online policy that you agreed to when you signed on to come to Flint Hill Farmstay -48 hr cancellation notice or you or anyone would be charged for the next night. That has been our written/online policy for the past 6 yrs. I just had a gentleman in that same lovely trailer for one month prior to your arrival who enjoyed the accommodations and had voiced no problems with either the toilet or the shower. He was 6 foot 2 inches tall. Neither you nor your husband or grandson mentioned anything to me of your dissatifaction with the breakfast when you told me you would not be returning. The other 7 people seemed to enjoy the breakfast I prepared and thanked me for a "delicious breakfast" featuring our home made breads, seasonal fruits, jams, butter, our assortment of artisan goat and cow milk cheeses, yogurt, fresh Jersey milk and along with the pancakes, fresh chicken and duck eggs and bacon. You have been very dilligent and have written similar negative reviews on many of our review sites. I again am sorry that you don't agree with our policy; however, please accept that fact that you agreed to it prior to arrival. I spoke to you numerous times over the phone prior to arrival, explained to you the 28 foot 2008 SuperSport travel trailer in detail and readjusted your reservation dates once to accommodate you, your husband and your grandchildren's work schedule needs. Please accept this explanation and put this issue to rest. Sincerely, Kathleen Fields

For the past 6-7 years my wife and I, who are both academic figures in mental health practice and research, have spent a long weekend with Kathy Fields at her Flint Hill Farm. Each weekend has been a unique experience -- a time of deep refreshment and spiritual renewal. The rooms are charming, with period antiques, large windows that allow for fresh breezes, sunlight, and an inspiring view of the landscape. The breakfasts are freshly cooked by Chef Bob each morning, combining local produce with an understand country flair. Best of all are the opportunities to sit out on the porch in the evening, listening to the sounds of nature, enjoying the stars, and sharing in an intimate conversation with Kathy Fields herself. She is the spiritual heartbeat of this farm -- truly a joy to be in her company. .

Flint Hill is real farm gem within 1.5 hour from Philadelphia. If you are looking to experience helping with chores, meeting farm animals and just relax at the country side - this place is for you! Outstanding dairy products are made at the farm and ready to enjoy there and take home with you. Kathleen, farm owner, is an excellent host and makes fresh and delicious breakfast. Be prepared to share your restroom with the stranger - but this is part of living at farm house. We are definitely will be back.

Cathy is really nice and made our stay very cozy. It was nice to see all the animals and life at the farm as it normally is.

As one of seven riders on the second day of a three day bicycle trip I really enjoyed my stay here. Very clean and updated farmhouse with a great kitchen, comfortable beds, lots of towels for all and a super from-the-farm breakfast. I'd certainly visit and stay again if close to the area to share the experience with my wife.

My daughter, 2 granddaughters (both 13) and I spent 2 days and 3 nights at Flint Hill Farm this month. The girls were so happy to see and help care for the baby animals. Goats, lambs and Calves kept them busy and excited. Horse lessions were taken very seriously. The animals and staff were friendly, My granddaughters learned what it means to be a farmer. Long hours every day, but loving every minute of it. Thank you Cathy and staff.

My mother, sister and I took our girls, ages 12 & 13 here last year. They had such a blast we came again this year. They helped feed the animals, collect eggs, milk goats, and take a horseback riding lesson. In April, the got to hold and feed baby goats and lambs just 2 weeks old! The breakfast was farm fresh eggs, milk and cheeses. Our girls will remember this trip for the rest of their lives.

It was a beautiful fall day at Flint Hill Farm. My wife and I (aka Bobo and Boba) spent the day sharing the magic of this place with our three grandchildren (5, 2 and 6 months). It was about as perfect an experience as one could hope! The two oldest boys were engaged with nature at every turn, and they engaged with a freedom and thrill that surprised even me. Smiles everywhere as big as the sky, even for me. .

We visited Flint Hill Farm for an overnight adventure with our three grandchildren. We had a wonderful and exciting visit. The children are still talking about all the various activities they participated in. Kathy and her staff were more than gracious and we learned and experienced so much about what goes on in running a working farm.
The motor home allows for a quiet, relaxing vacation with privacy. The trailer is located in a wooded area with picnic table and gas grill(available upon request). Full country breakfast is shared in the main home. Enjoy the best of both worlds--farming and camping!!!
The farmhouse dates from 1850s. This part of the house was built in 1920 as addition to accommodate the growing farm family. Newly decorated, the room offers a welcoming mix of past and present. Window air conditioner allows temperature control for summer months.
The farmhouse was built somewhere around 1850. The original part of the house held only the parlor, kitchen and two bedrooms. The floor slants from the original beams; however, it is totally remodeled for your comfort. The trundle opens into two twin beds. There is tight room for two other cots(supplied). Window air conditioner is supplied for summer comfort.
This is the largest of the farmhouse bedrooms. The full balcony off the back of the house offers an excellent view of the entire farm. Lounge chairs offer private relaxation during the day and an excellent place to enjoy the cool evening breeze.
queensize bed with option of extra cot.
