    A wonderful secluded private retreat looking over the treetops. Immaculately presented and had everything you would need and more. The breakfast goodies were amazing and a great treat. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property.

    The property is absolutely stunning, waking up to the view that it has definitely makes your whole day. When I saw fern ridge advertised I immediately fell in love, however there is nothing like seeing it in the flesh and being in its environment. It is the ultimate dream house and the homely touches and the smell of wood that hits you when you walk into it, is definitely going to make you want to live there. I cannot thank Erin & John enough! I hope one day to have a house similar!
