Mike and his family were most gracious and friendly hosts. Their spot in Chase is a classic small farm, with 30 acres backing onto CP rail tracks. The petting zoo and the equestrian facilities were a huge hit with our kiddos. They were able to play on the climber, soccer in the gravel drive and we’re most easily entertained for hours by the chickens, geese, turkeys, peacocks, pig, emu, rabbit, donkey and a few other petting zoo habitants. The horses were also fun to watch. Would be glad to return!
