  • Great place that is even better in person

    Great place that is even better in person. Perfect for families or people traveling in large groups. Friendly hosts and owners of the farm, picturesque views when taking walks or runs on the property. The Bach itself is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay and more. Would definitely recommend and hope to come again some day.
