We loved our stay at the farm. Steve and Shae were awesome hosts. They answered all of my questions promptly prior to arrival, greeted us on arrival and gave us a tour of the property and showed us the animals. It was great to learn about farm life and loved the scenery around the property. Would highly reccomend

Beautiful spot to camp and very well maintained. Steve the host was really hospitable and showed us all the farm animals, which was cool. Plenty of nice spots to camp on the property with beautiful views. Great spot to camp if you plan on hiking Cradle Mountain!

The Farm was an exceptional place to stay. From the beginning the communication received from hosts Shae & Steve were professional and extremely helpful. The view from The Plateau was sensational and the animals were cute and friendly. Shae & Steve were extremely friendly and made our stay a wonderful experience. Thank you.
