We are a small farm in Silicon Valley. We are basically a petting zoo and kid-friendly destination! You can stay in our "Flying Pig" cabin (sleeps up to 5), or our "Room with a view of a Ewe" (sleeps 3)....or brings friends 'n' family - and reserve both :-)
We provide a continental breakfast for free or you can add on a hot breakfast. Wake up to sheep and goats outside your door with a view of the pasture.
Please PLEASE read further for more information!
and read again just before you come :-)
** To assure you of our cleanliness standards,
I clean and air out the cabin, clean the restroom thoroughly,
wash bedding and towels and sanitize every surface.
The restroom (in the main house) is yours exclusively (morning and evening)
when you stay here; I clean it every day, between every group or guest.
One mile away is Harvey Bear County Park, with trails for bikes, horses or walking. We are 5 minutes from the Gilroy Outlets, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle! Come, relax and enjoy nature!
**NOTE : we are exceptionally cautious with camp fires. If it is particularly hot and windy, there will be no fires. We now have a gas fire pit where you can create smores or just enjoy the campfire ambiance.
We will make this a special day for you! Let us know if you are celebrating an event :-). Currently we only have one listing so you get VIP treatment!
**Starting in 2024, we will have the "Room with a view of a Ewe" as a separate listing. You can reserve both or either. Check back for more info in January 2024!
CHECK-IN is after 4:00pm and please give us a 30 min heads-up before your arrival. CHECK OUT is 10am, unless previous arrangements have been made.
Please be as specific as you can regarding your arrival time (so I can make the temp in there as comfortable as possible, turn on lights as needed, etc.)
** We are a "Bed and Breakfast";
most days we have other day-guests and events here, so please respect the arrival and check-out times. If you stay 2 nights, please be aware that you most likely won't have the whole farm to yourselves during the day.
This is an animal farm. If you love new animal experiences, this is the place for you! If you are scared of or allergic to cats or dogs, this might not be the place for you! If you can't handle new smells and sounds, this might not be the place for you. You will feed and enjoy the animals; please respect their space, no chasing and no going into their enclosures.
There is dirt, dust and various country critters.
If you are adventurous and love animals and want a unique experience, come check us out!
