We've had the good fortune to stay at Rocky Acre times now. There is no better spot for families looking for a wind down weekend. Bottle feed the calves in the morning, feed the goats and horse after breakfast, and then the barrel train ride. The rooms are great and exactly as advertised on the site. Breakfast is great and very kid friendly. Our 7yr old son loves not just the activities but the extraordinarily kind people who make Rocky Acre what it is. We feel so fortunate that the Benners and their family share this special place with the rest of us.

We had a wonderful stay at Rocky Acre. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts each morning were delicious. Everyone was so hospitable and treated us very warmly. My daughter actually cried when she left because she had so much fun!

My family and I had the greatest time at Rocky Acre Farm! The Benner family were very nice people and made you feel like family. The B&B was beautiful and there was so much to do there! I will definitely go back and highly recommend it a place to stay!

Our 1st time at Rocky Acre Farm and I don't think I could have asked for anything more; it was a perfect trip! The hospitality from the family and workers is wonderful. You feel like you're part of the family. The breakfast is delicious and they provide enough for all families. The best part is you sit at a table with all the other guests. It gives you the opportunity to meet other people. After breakfast, Mr. Benner entertains your children for at least 2 hours with the hay rides, ponies, & train ride. It's geared for the younger children, but he will take older children on a ride with his tractor. So my daughter at 12 years old enjoyed it! The animals are great with the children. My children loved to go get the eggs, watch the cows be milked and fed the lambs. This trip brings the best out of your child! One tip: please pack enough clothes! They will get muddy, dirty, and be children like the good ol' days! Thank you for the wonderful time! We are looking forward to coming back.

My son (8) and I just got back today from the most wonderful visit to Rocky Acre Farm. We had long wanted to visit and finally booked the Century Room months ahead of time. Everything was perfect! We arrived and got a full tour of the dairy farm by the welcoming mechanic, Jason, which made us feel welcome and familiar right away. My son loves animals and was thrilled to visit the chicken coop multiple times a day where he fed the hens out of his hands and collected fresh eggs. He helped feed the calves and every night he watched the many beautiful cows get milked. The morning pony ride was fun and the hayride took us around the countryside and over a covered bridge. The breakfast is incredibly delicious, generous, and festive: all home cooked, fresh farm eggs, chocolate milk made from the farm's milk, all sorts of fresh pastries, coffee, and fresh fruit. My son enjoyed helping ring the bell to call guests to breakfast. We loved it here so much that we went ahead and booked the same room for next year. The only change: we'll stay longer! A very personal and magical farm experience! Thank you so much!!!!

It was so wonderful to visit this place again. Eileen made us feel so welcome. As always, the breakfast was bountiful and wonderful. We had not been here in several years due to distance from home and other reasons. We were treated as old friends rather than just guests. It makes going to Rocky Acres that much more special!

Our 6 y.o. son loved it overall - milking a cow, playing with kittens, picking up eggs and sleeping on a bed over the shower. Perfect farm stay.

The farm was recommended to us by a friend who returns there yearly with her grandchildren. Our stay (Tuesday September 6 through Thursday September 8, 2016) included our granddaughter, who is 20 months old, my daughter and her husband and his parents. We reserved "the apartment" which had two bedrooms, comfortable sleeping arrangements for snorers and non-snorers. It also included a full kitchen and living room. We arrived on the Tuesday afternoon after Labor Day, and immediately enjoyed the swings, the mini-house and the bike garage. There was also a golf cart available and we used it to go to the creek across the street, around which chairs encircle a fire pit. Kayaks were also available for use, which my daughter and son-in-law loved. Our granddaughter was happy to wade in the parts of the creek which were shallow, and picked up and threw stones. We fed the goats watermelon rinds and were actually able to go inside the fence to pet them. There is a chicken house, where baskets are available to collect eggs. Breakfast was a delicious home-cooked masterpiece, including, peaches and cream French toast, breakfast meats, eggs and plenty of fresh fruit, as well as many other goodies. After breakfast, many structured activities were planned, such as the tractor pull of mini carts, pony rides, and hay ride through to Yippee farms and through a covered bridge. I can definitely understand why visitors return year after year, and I would advise booking early to reserve your date, especially through the summer months since days and weekends were pretty much booked through Labor Day. It is definitely on my return list, but my son-in-law requested that we bring fishing poles for next year. Thank you so much, Eileen and Galen, for a wonderful time!

This was our first visit on the farm. It exceeded our expectations. Plenty to do, fresh air, good hosts, and happy children who did not want to leave.
