Wow. What a beautiful piece of land perfect for just sitting and taking in nature. I arrived under a full sky full of stars and awoke to an amazing sunrise over fields and the garden right outside of the garden shed. Also made a new friend with quite possibly the friendliest cat in the world. Perfect stay!

We arrived very late and tired and did not want to set up camp in the shed. We asked if it was ok to set up our tiny camper and Anna told us where to park and provided electricity! When we woke up, we discovered the most amazing place, full of animals and flowers and the garden shed was a perfect place to eat breakfast and hang out. We stayed all morning and our kids loved this place. We would come back here just to stay another few nights. The shared bathroom and kitchen were clean and well-stocked, and the farm grounds provided a nice, relaxing place to rest before our next leg of travel. 10/10. The owners are great, and Anna even took my kids into the chicken coop to gather eggs (and let them keep one). Very good hosts and very good property. Can’t say enough good things.

The property was incredible and the gardens were gorgeous! We loved the animals and even had a cat that spent her time loving on us.

The chicken coop was just up the hill next to the community building. There was a bird house on the side of the shed!The flowers were beautiful! We couldn't get enough of the natural beauty.

The energy that surrounded Anna’s land was magnificent. The history, and the beauty of the land made for a peaceful stay. Having farm animals roam around you and a friendly cat definitely topped it off. Highly recommend

Our stay exceeded expectations! It felt like we left reality and entered
an Alice Hoffman novel! The beautiful garden shed was spacious and offered an amazing view of nature and fire pit. We were able to make our own dried flower bouquet. Our two-year-old fell head over heels for the resident cat. In fact, she loved all of the animals on-site. It was incredible to be able to cook dinner together in the giant communal kitchen. Not to mention how convenient it was to have clean, warm indoor bathrooms & shower. I wish we never had to leave, but as amazing as it all was, we can tell it will be twice as awesome once all of the stunning flowers bloom! If you have the opportunity to stay here, do it!

View from the garden shedhanging out by the fire dinner is ready in the kitchen! so great to be able to cook a hot meal after a long day. reading while husband builds the fire - view from inside garden shed

Beautiful setting! Would definitely stay again. It was great to be able to make coffee and wash our travel dishes before hitting the road again. Very clean restrooms and shared kitchen space. Anna went out of her way to make us feel welcome and greeted us at midnight! We would stay again! Close enough to the highway for an easy stop, but felt very rural, which was fantastic.
