It is kidding season!!  We have baby goats with more on the way!! Expect bouncing bundles of joy! 

Come spend some time camping, with the goats at Goat House Farm (and the chickens and a pig!).  Kayaking and hiking right off the property! Beautiful sunsets on the lake!

We are in a rural area of Tallahassee, along the Florida Big Bend Scenic Byway and surrounded by the beautiful Lake Talquin State Forest. Great fishing and hiking trails and beautiful sunsets. Two Trailwalkers and one Trailtrotter trails are just minutes away.  There is also a 10-mile Lines Bike Trail.  See trail maps in our photos!

We are located at the end of a bumpy 3/4 mile dirt road off Highway 20/Blountstown Hwy on the lake.  While not quite a "series of ditches," the road is rather wide, we are prone to flooding after more than a couple of days of hard rain since the hurricane damaged the road!  We have several cars in the neighborhood that don't have a problem on the road when it is dry. 

We are about twenty five minutes from FSU stadium - straight shot! We love to host students and parents!

We offer a roomy water resistant glamping tent with two high quality queen tatami beds including fresh linens, towels, and camp chairs. We can add a third person and provide a large Coleman cot or single air mattress when available (check that it is available and it is a tight fit!) 

We provide water, wifi, laundry, fresh eggs, milk (when moms aren't pregnant/nursing), and fresh fruits and veggies for the picking when in season.  

Farm fresh breakfast and coffee or tea in the morning on Saturdays. There is also one kayaks available for use.  

We have a small outdoor kitchen area with grill, stove, utensils, and picnic table. Basic cooking ingredients are provided (oil, salt, pepper, eggs, etc) and you are welcome to pick from the garden in spring/summer. 

There is also a common room with sofas, laundry, fridge, microwave, tv, coffee pot, and kettle. 

We have a small bath house with hot shower and a composting toilet. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, and fresh towels provided.

We can also offer extra tents and air mattresses for $10  if you need more space.  You will need to setup/break down the extra tents yourself. .  There is a small site for the extra tent adjacent to the canvas tent.  

Check-in/Check-out time may be flexible depending upon concurrent bookings! We ask that you clear your site by 11am, but you are welcome to spend the remainder of the day hanging out with the goats, kayaking, or just relaxing. 

Dogs welcome at all sites, but are not allowed the pasture.  And, we don't mind if your dog runs around off leash as long as he/she doesn't chase the animals through the fence!  Please bring bags and clean up after your companion animals! We do charge a $10 cleaning fee for pets in our tent.  Please add your pet as an extra person when you book (ex. just one extra person, even if you have two dogs). 

Things you should bring: 

Lighting for walking about (we will provide a lantern)

Refillable water bottles 

Sunscreen if you plan to be out on the lakeBug Spray

Ask us about our goat yoga classes! We generally have classes twice a month on Saturdays and also offer private yoga classes with our without the goats! 

Please arrive before 7pm.  Farm folks hit the hay pretty early and it also gets very dark out here!!

Feel free to message if you have questions!  The herd looks forward to meeting you!!

We had a lovely stay. Melissa made us feel welcome and at home on the farm. We came because of the goats and they did not disappoint. My children were infatuated with them, especially the babies. All of the animals are well cared for. I am certain we will return.

Melissa was a great host and loves sharing her knowledge of the different residents of her farm. The tent and queen beds were comfortable. The outdoor area by the tent was nice with the large rug, table and fire pit. Fellow campers were very friendly. Our group had a fun weekend and we will stay at Goat House Farm again.

Melissa is so sweet! The set up is SOOOO much better than we were expecting. It is such a beautiful place and there are so many animals that you can tell Melissa genuinely loves and takes such good care of. There are cats, chickens (with fresh eggs), tons of baby goats, and even a couple of peacocks. It is such a good, relaxing environment and I would 100% recommend

Me and my children had an amazing time glamping at the goat house farm. The kids loved petting the goats, pig and chickens. The tent was well shaded under trees and the inside of the tent felt like a home away from home. The environment is well kept up and she welcomed us like we were family. I would definitely recommend to anyone both young and old.
