Great stay, nice host, cute animals
This was a truly wonderful place to stay. The farm is on the foothills of the Rush Valley and has expansive views of the valley. The stars at night were amazingly bright and could be seen as low as the horizon. Upon arrival I was met by Shane who directed me to park my 20ft class C motorhome on a level pad next to the barn. It felt private from the other RV party who were located at the other end of the property, and from the house.
The next morning Shane gave a farm tour which included feeding the chickens, goats, horses, and alpacas. He let the goats and alpacas out from their enclosure to freely roam the property. We even got to see a 1-day old goat! Shane was very knowledgeable and patient with the other party's kids. He also showed us the farm store which included wares and treats from locals. While the stay was short, it was very memorable and I would definitely stay again in the future.
Awesome unique experience
One of the coolest and most unique places we have stayed! Shayne was an awesome host and spent a ton of time showing us the ins and outs of the farm, even educating our kids on how to feed and take care of the animals and garden. So special to be able to hold baby goats and see the alpaca walking around. We want to bring friends back and feel like we left with a new friend.
Stellar time at starry hollow
What a beautiful location and so much fun for the kids! Genny, the farmer and teacher, gave a stellar farm tour to all of us. It was very informative and interesting as we learned about rescued animals generally, alpacas, goats and a llama. Lily nearly got a gentle kiss on the cheek by Madelyn the alpaca. The kids got to pet the baby goat. And the 2 year old got to see Tommy the cat eat his vole dinner. There was something for all of to learn! Highly recommended!
The listing states electricity but when I asked for it she told me I’d have to Venmo her $10.00 a day for a house grade extension cord. No farm tour, no real interaction with the farm or hosts other than observation. Pretty views and well maintained farm, just to expensive. I have traveled the US staying on little hobby farms. No water, no garbage, no tables or fire pits. The other campers also seemed to be looking for electricity but all cramped together in a corner of a giant field.
We need more hipcampers like genny
Alpaca Rescue Farm far exceeded our expectations. Genny and her husband go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome by greeting you upon arrival. Giving you guided tours of their beautiful Ranch and all of wonderful animals they love and nurture. It's amazing to hear the story of where they started and how far they've come building up the Ranch to live off the grid for themselves and the animals. They happily answer all of your questions. We will definitely be going back to see the progress of the Ranch, visit the animals, and take in the kindness of the best host and hostess we've ever met. Thank you for everything you're both doing.
