Debbie and Matt were excellent hosts who went up and beyond the call of duty to make our stay very memorable. Several of us are planning our next visit to the farm.

This place is a gem! It’s actually a bit of an earth home and stays very cool in very hot exterior temperatures. They have equipped it with everything you need and the host themselves couldn’t be nicer. We are very happy we stayed there! 2 adults 5 children and we all slept very comfortably with plenty of space.

The cabin was air conditioned, which was totally unexpected but much appreciated. Creeks & woods were also a lovely surprise. Swimming in the pond in utter solitude was the highlight! The hosts were so kind & helpful.
