Nice people, peaceful setting

We really enjoyed the warm hospitality of our hosts, Cindy and Gary. Our room was comfortable and homey and the breakfast was great. Sitting out on the dock at the lake was so peaceful and relaxing. We really enjoyed conversation with Cindy and Gary, very nice folks!

Stayed in the RV one night!

My two nine year old kids and I stayed in the RV one night. It was perfect for us and economical, plus extremely clean! Both kids want to come back and stay longer. The property is gorgeous and scenic. The kids swam in the pool which was great. Plus they loved the play house. Staying in the RV was economical plus gave us a chance to try out what having a RV would be like. The owners Cindy and Gary are super nice and sweet. I enjoyed chatting with them! We'll definitely plan to stay here again!

Warm hospitality

Cindy and Gary were like long lost friends. They were so welcoming. When we arrived late they gave us half of their dinner. A wonderful experience with a very warm couple. Made us feel like family! It is a working farm and has a great country feel to the locale. We can’t say enough about the hospitality of our hosts. In fact, Cindy drove us into town and showed us the best way to continue our trip since neither of our phones worked and we were lost without the GPS feature – a note to our dependence on modern technology but old world kindness bailed us out.

The Best Bed & Breast Ever on a Beautiful Farm!!

We had a great time at this beautiful farm!! Their Bed & Breakfast is FIVE STAR'S!!! Cindy cooked us a very impressive and delicious spread every morning from homemade biscuits to breakfast casserole to French toast to little round pancakes for Thomas, there was more just way too much to mention!! We enjoyed every bite! We really enjoyed swimming, fishing, the campfire & smores, and hayride but most of all the friendship and fellowship of Cindy and Gary!!! They will go out of their way to accommodate and help to make your stay the most comfortable! Will definitely be back just not soon enough! Thanks so much Cindy & Gary!!

We had an awesome time at Wolf Creek Farm. It's one of those places where you immediately feel you are at home among friends. Cindy took time out of her busy day to take my son fishing in their pond right after we arrived. We cooled off in their pool, followed their suggestion to a wonderful dinner in town, then relaxed in very comfortable accommodations until morning, when a HUGE farm breakfast awaited us. I will definitely return next time I'm in the vicinity of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Mt. Airy, NC!

Secluded B&B

5 on May 06, 2015

We had a quiet and relaxing stay in the Laurel Glen Cottage at Wolf Creek Farm B&B. Our hosts met us on our arrival and made us feel at home. The cottage was clean and comfortable, with all the conveniences of home. We plan on staying there again when in the area.

Beautiful and quiet

Wolf Creek Farm is certainly off of the "beaten path". If you want fancy and all the niceties, stay in a hotel downtown, but if you want some peace, quiet, and fantastic hosts, stay at Wolf Creek Farm! It is a working farm, and this area is steeped in history and beauty. The Hobacks are great people, the conversation was a joy, and the breakfasts were great. We were there for 3 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The farm is just a few minutes from some great restaurants and other attractions in Mt Airy, NC. The Olympia restaurant is for down home folks like us, the food is great and the wait staff is fantastic. Prices are great, just be sure you take cash, they don't take plastic. And if you want some fall-off-the bone fantastic ribs, try 13 Bones restaurant. We also highly recommend the regional museum at the north end of the old downtown (Mayberry). The Blue Ridge Parkway is just a few miles north of the farm, we happened to catch the fall leaves at their peak of color -just beautiful. For you history buffs, the farm is actually part of the property where J.E.B. Stuart was born, his birthplace is "just over the hill".

my stay at wolf creek

4.0 on June 29, 2014

It was really great! Loved the Farm, very friendly and helpful for the area,Quiet and peaceful. Just one thing was dissappointing as the weather was beautiful and hot could not use the pool. was not available no patio furniture to sit on around pool at this time and was not aware of this until we arrived. Had we known we may have went somewhere else to enjoy a pool. we chose this place because of the pool and we just wanted to relax and enjot ourselves. I would recomend this place as long as all things are working. Would of been nice to have had the heads up on pool before we arrive i believed we payed maybe too much for what we got.
