Intro: I’m a retired middle school principal who now lives with and watches over my 90 year dad. My 2 cats, Shock and Simba, help❣️When not working at the local health food store, I like to read, cook, watch the birds who visit, and dig in the dirt.
I needed a place close to home to get off the merry go round and sit still. I also wanted to cook over an open fire but crawl into a comfy bed after the evening’s flames burned out. The Cozy Cabin @ Nature Works Farm fit the bill perfectly.
The Cabin, more spacious than I anticipated, was simple, clean and decorated with homey touches, including pictures of Cassandra and Bob’s animals and produce. A cast iron skillet was ready to cook my meals. The little sink and hose around back cleaned dishes and human hands without problems. And the composting toilet area was tidy, odorless, and served its purpose just fine.
Yes, you can see the farm house, sort of, if you try. I spent much of my 3 1/2 days on the lovely little porch looking at the stream and the fields beyond the trees. What house? Yes, you can hear traffic, but I encourage you to listen more intently to the birds and frogs. What vigorous performances they provided each day!
Don’t come expecting luxury because you won’t find it. What you will find is a safe, sweet little cabin tucked next to a peaceful stream, a retreat for unplugging and/or for using as a home base for all the activities found in this area, and best of all, super friendly and gracious hosts!
Thank you, Cassandra and Bob! I loved every second. I left feeling rejuvenated and will be back as soon as possible!
I couldn’t have picked a better place to relax and rejuvenate❣️ Darci and Amanda have created a great atmosphere on their Summer Smiles Honey Farm for folks to take a timeout from the demands of everyday life. The Farm is peaceful, the animals engaging, and the paths cleared for exploring.
I stayed in the glamping studio loft house... comfy, cozy, and cute. The upstairs loft bed was excellent. The downstairs room had plenty of space for eating and sitting without feeling cramped. Oh, the outside shower... awesome! And the Scotty Potty was the cleanest I’ve ever seen in my life!
I had the welcome platter on day 1, which sustained me for my 3 day visit because of all of the delightful treats. But I also had the yummy lasagna and a super fresh salad day 2... enough for 2 days. I enjoyed crusty, warm homemade bread and herb butter that came with both meals.
The Farm provides opportunities to sit quietly and reflect, to romp around with sweet Sis, Big Fluff, and the hilarious chickens, to hike several trails, to observe the bee yard, and even take classes if available. Several covered bridges, the Flight 93 Memorial, and other sightseeing possibilities are within easy driving distance.
Great hosts, a great setting, great beasts, great food, great bed, great outdoor shower... all add up to a wonderful, unique, ‘can’t wait to go back’ experience❣️
