A True Hidden Jem

4.8 on July 25, 2017

My husband and I stayed here for our late anniversary get away in June 2017(3 nights). We enjoyed bird watching, fishing, berry picking, watching the horses, and so much more all without leaving the property. Marion is the greatest host I have ever met. Very kind and friendly, As well as a good cook. She even went as far as to point out local restaurant.

Nice secluded setting

This small farm sits back off of a lightly-traveled road, and has only one guest room, making for a very peaceful setting. The room is lovely, with windows on three sides, with a very nice view of the back yard along with the birds and wildlife. Breakfast is great in terms of both quality and quantity..... and it's delivered right to your room. Marion is a gracious hostess, and went out of her way to accomodate us. We'll go back when we stay in the area again.

Beautiful, Peaceful, Place To Get Away From It All

Found this place doing an internet search as a Valentines gift to my Wife. I was very pleasantly surprised with this place. The room is beautiful, with a gorgeous view of the pond, and horse pastures. A very nice bathroom with a large shower, and tub. Marion is a very nice host, and a heck of a cook. If you want to escape your troubles for a while, then this is a great place to do it.
