  • It was a real treat to stay in this beautiful old homestead

    It was a real treat to stay in this beautiful old homestead. In addition to the charm of the building itself, the little welcoming touches that delighted us included complimentary farm fresh eggs, wood for the fire, and an offer of a guided tour of the farm. Meeting the pet sheep was all part of the fun. I especially loved the quality of the beautiful linen and the comfort of the beds. A wonderful property in a wonderful location.
