If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was, by far, the best site we’ve stayed at so far! Kenneth’s property is beautiful and buzzing with fun animals! He met us when we got there and let us choose anywhere on the property to set up camp! He even helped us make a make-shift fire pit at the location we chose. The shower was clean and had plenty of hot water, and we were welcomed in by the most beautiful scarlet macaw named Oscar! :) We we’re greeted in the morning by Kenneth’s chickens, guinea hens, and 3 friendly turkeys who were all so fun to watch as we woke up!! Kenneth was so helpful and welcoming, even as we arrived after dark. I would recommend this site to anyone!!
Worth the trip!
I didn’t know Kenneth was a friend that I hadn’t met yet! I so enjoyed his generous nature and beautiful property. He has but so much into the land. His animals were an added bonus.
Even his rooster was kind to guests and refrained from cockadoodle-do’s until a reasonable hour.
This delightful place may seem off the beaten path but I enjoyed the trip to and from the interstate. I was raised not too far away and haven’t lived in the area for 38 years. Big sky, corn and beautiful farms for miles!
BONUS: Don’t miss the visit to Lincoln’s Log Cabin just a few miles south. It has a full visitor center and offers reenactors from the 1845 time period. I wish I had longer to hang out or explore!
A nice breath of the fresh air
Kenneth is a great host that delivers above and beyond, very kind and helpful with anything you can imagine. We loved our stay in his beautiful garden and had fun looking at the chickens and guineas walking around pecking at the ground.
Thanks for hosting us!
A little piece of heaven
It was so peaceful. Kenneth made our stay feel like we were family. 15/10 we would stay again. Kenneth gave us advice on what was nearby to see, introduced us to his animals, and allowed us access to his restroom. It was beyond delightful to stay here.
