My family of five had such a nice stay at Bright Star Farm! We were welcomed upon arrival with fresh eggs and an explanation about everything we needed to know about the property. The hosts were very friendly and they made sure they gave us privacy! Our kids loved all the animals, especially Rocket! We will definitely be going back.

Some say where the blacktop ends. Not quite the case but it’s where my cell service ended. This was a great place to get away from the distractions of the world. Set up your chairs beside the barn and watch the sunset over the trees. It’s worth it. No light pollution so the stars really shine. Definitely a great place to stay.

It lives up to its name! There were so many beautiful stars out at night and it was a gorgeous view for sunrise and sunset. My little ones loved all the animals and the hosts were very gracious! They do have a rather vocal rooster who wakes up early if you need to sleep in haha, it was no big deal for us! We loved the farm!

This picture does not do justice to the night sky at all!

Chairs are provided to savor the lovely sunset view over a quiet pasture on this family farm. Connie and Steve have interesting pets such as Eeyore the Donkey, pea cocks and hens, a yellow rooster, a super friendly cat and green tree frogs. Young children will especially enjoy meeting horses just their size. Since there are no trees by the camp site, bring a shade canopy if you plan to stay during high summer. The rest room has hot and cold running water. Firewood is stacked near the fire pit.

The host was very nice. There are a lot of farm animals for the kids to visit. The miniature horses and pigs are very friendly. Beautiful country.
