The Guinea farm is 18 acres of feild and forest on the rural middle pennensula. Only 1 mile from 2 separate secluded beaches and a boat launch. There is verly little traffic or light polution here, nature is at your fingertips. Come visit the farm and experience agrotourism at it's finest. Pick your own veggies in the community garden and meet the Guinea fowl! Enjoy the windernes and learn about the local ecosystem here on the middle pennensula. There are 3 sites spaced out across the 18 acres set apart for privacy. Wisteria is a primative site closer to the entrance gate. Trilogy is a suspended tree tent in the pines 700' beyond that and seperated by dense forest. Stargazer Tiny cabin is an offgrid rustic camping cabin on the back side of the property. Each site is surronded by several acres of forest and close to the edge of a large feild. There are romaing guinea fowl that may come make a very loud appearance as they canvas the property eating bugs. Deer, Turkeys, Bald Eagles, foxes, and other wildlife are common guests also. Mid-summer is what I call frog season, Tree frogs are abundant and provide a wonderful soundtrack. There are free to use bicycles, an axe throwing board, and cornhole boards available. 4 miles from shopping and dining in Mathews Virginia, 15 miles to Gwynn Island. Gwynn's Island is an island located in the Chesapeake Bay off of Virginia's Middle Peninsula. The island is located in the northeast part of Mathews County, south of the mouth of the Piankatank River. It is connected to the rest of the county by a swing bridge over Milford Haven.

Loved it!
We had a great time at the trilogy and exploring the land around it! Ian was very accommodating and we really enjoyed seeing all the birds. We would definitely come back and will recommend this place to friends.

Great spot, awesome host. Very quick with response and helpful. Gave us needed space for our pup to be able to chill and was very kind with letting us treat the space like our own. Would definitely recommend, great spot for dog people and Aaron's Beach nearby really is pretty deserted and beautiful. Just bring a lead to be kind to those around you and for when there's local wildlife around. There's a Food Lion about ten minutes away as well, so no need to worry about food stuffs in the area. Thanks again, Ian!

Stargazer Tiny Cabin
Great experience
Ian was an absolutely outstanding host. He has done an amazing job making a small cabin with every amenity that you can think of available to his guests. He's serious about listening to feedback and acting on it. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pans, silverware, a propane stove and drinking water. There's wifi, a cool projector with Netflix etc, books, games, usb chargers... so much packed into a small place. It's nothing short of fantastic. It was quite cold when we stayed, and Ian made sure we were set up with firewood for the wood stove and plenty of propane for the heater. He was quick to reply to my texts. He was also very understanding when my jerk dog chased his birds. The cabin is near some cool beaches and some nearby historic sites. We had a great time exploring. We'll definitely be back on day!

Stargazer Tiny Cabin
We really enjoyed our stay! It was so nice being able to stay in a cabin, and 3 of us slept in the main bed quite comfortably. Unfortunately a lot of our wood was damp and we had issues with starting a fire, but with the propane heater it made things a lot better and we managed to get by quite well. Ian was very friendly and helpful with any questions or concerns we had. It was great seeing the birds and also meeting the two dogs, 10/10 great trip.

Second verse, same as the first :-)
This was our second time staying at Guinea Farm and we enjoyed ourselves just as much as the first time. Ian is a terrific host and the resident critters are a total hoot. We enjoyed our non-traditional Thanksgiving meal by the campfire with a big flock of guineas. We hope to come back and try out the treehouse next!
