Loved this little weekend getaway! Cabin was cozy and welcoming. Jessica was very accommodating and responsive. She found a non-dairt waffle recipe for me which was delicious! I brought my dog with me who enjoyed the little hiking trails and visiting with the animals. A peaceful experience and can't wait to come back!

Jessica and Jim are fabulous hosts. The goats, horses, llamas, pot belly pigs, peacock, chickens and cats were all great to be around. Was fun when the goats were let out towards evening and walked around the property. So peaceful and what a beautiful night to star gaze. Outdoor shower was the best. A little chilly out but what an experience!!! Nothing better than being in the country!!! We will be back! LuAnn and Laura

My son made a reservation earlier in the day, “on a goat farm, Da”, and me thoughts were that Charlie the canine will love the smells, and we have over 400 miles to drive.

So. We arrived at dusk. We were tired, ready to eat and retire to bed, and yet, the setting, nestled in, with the big barn , generated a sense of comfort within me that extended outward, peaceful, natural, harmonious, and this feeling has grown so much that overnight, this place has redefined Home for me.
Welcoming! Familiar!

We loved staying at Windy Goat Acres in the retreat cabin. Perfect size for a romantic get away for a few days. Loved seeing the different animals walking around in the open and that came up to us for petting. Also got the Waffle Bar - YUM! Beautiful property - spent an afternoon exploring everything. Was too windy for a campfire and cooking while we were there, but we found several local restaurants that were delicious as well. We will definitely be back, and are planning to bring our kids with us on a future trip as well.
