What a pleasant place to spend a couple of nights! The Roost was very comfortable despite the fact that it was hot and super humid outside.

The Roost is well appointed with a bed with sheets and a bedspread, small fridge and freezer, hot and cold water and basic cooking supplies.

It's not secluded, but the grounds are beautiful and pleasantly park-like. Our hosts were so thoughtful -- especially with helping abet my daughter's fascination with the chickens.

You'll probably see butterflies, hummingbirds, bunnies and deer during your stay.The mattress is so comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. Friendly chickens

What a fun place to stay! A bright little space .Artful and simple decor. Nice for sleeping -with the ceiling fan and cross breeze & super comfy bed. It was very clean. Chickens are literally next to the place. Fun to watch them.The Host had a little gift basket of eggs in the mini fridge for breakfast. You also get a free bundle of chopped wood. Bring some sticks or paper kindling to help get your fire started! It is a camping /glamping set up. I brought my lantern , citronella candles, bug spray, paper towels, wet wipes. It was quiet and peaceful. The downside is no running water for washing up or sink to brush your teeth. A garden hose or outdoor spigot would be a big help. But there are plenty of nice touches at the Roost: wine glasses, china, coffee mugs, silverware for 2. I will go back here again.

I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a “getaway”. It was a wonderful and relaxing night away from my family. Time to relax and be alone! The butterfly garden was beautiful. I kayaked on the river and visited the sculpture garden, Taylor’s Falls, and Stillwater!

Great hosts! The bed was soooo comfortable. With the combo of the house being in the shade, having amazing cross ventilation and a super cooling fan, this place stays incredibly cool. They have a hot/hold water dispenser in the house, so , ..since we're hand washers we just brought soap and set up a wash station outside with a pitcher. It worked out great. All the fixtures inside are gorgeous. The hens are so beautiful...like something you'd see at the state fair. There is a small refrigerator/freezer too (it comes stocked with eggs for tomorrow's breakfast). There are adorable little bird nests all over the walking areas. The toilet is composting so it doesnt stink. If anything needs attention the hosts are there for anything you need. They've got all the flashlights, bugspray, sunscreen, hot dog campfire skewers, fire-toppers and pans for cooking, cups, plates and spoons.... so no need to pack it all (just pack soap& your hand washing pitcher). They have a tub in the tiny house to leave your dirty dishes. We've already recommended it to several people. It's bleached down daily (but doesn't smell) so there's peace of mind. Quiet time is 9pm. The stars are amazing out there too.

This is just what we needed a small but beautiful setting. The area was landscape for enjoyment and you felt completely at peace. The host made sure you were going to be comfortable and were there if you needed anything. Then hens made beautiful sound and were great neighbors. The Roost was comfortable and had just the right amount of amenities for Glamping.

The roost was clean and private, and located close to a state park! Loved the butterfly garden. We had trouble starting a fire- the wood was wet. May want to bring your own! We will be back for sure.
