This farm was established in 1915 , it has an old barn, chicken coop and a white farm house we are currently renovating.

The Swell Barn, was built in 1910 by the Pioneers who settled this once desperate landscape.  Emery is on the Spanish Trail, once a traders mecca from Sante Fe to Los Angeles. It is now full of lovely tall trees and a heirloom fruit orchard.

This farm was established in 1915 , it has an old barn, chicken coop and a white farm house we are currently renovating.

The Swell Barn, was built in 1910 by the Pioneers who settled this once desperate landscape.  Emery is on the Spanish Trail, once a traders mecca from Sante Fe to Los Angeles. It is now full of lovely tall trees and a heirloom fruit orchard.

The fruit orchard is offered for U pick apples and Pears in season.. We have lovely vistas looking towards the San Raphael Swell.

The barn is a step up from a tent,  but it is an adventure to spend the night in such a historic, remote place.  the quiet can be hard for some people to get used to.

There are two twin beds and an inflatable queen mattress if needed.

Bring your sleeping bags and camping gear. 

There is a 5 gallon tank of water and  a fridge and microwave oven. In front of the barn is a camp fire ring, wood included. (Composting toilet)

We have found that it is hard for people to unplug completely from the electronic world. So we offer 5G internet and antennae TV with smart connects.

But try to disconnect if you can!

Everything was great. Love the small town desert vibe and the many activities in nearby San Rafael swell.

Marie Bell farm is tucked away in a small & quiet neighborhood and it’s easy to find. Staying at Marie Bell farm is going to be a cozy getaway for all. There is firewood on the front porch available for use in the wood burning stove in the living room of the house - super nice that you don’t have to bring your own firewood! There is not a fence in between the RV Spot and the neighbors' house, but the neighbors seem nice and were quiet. If you decide you want to go for a stroll through the neighborhood, walk back to the end of the street and there is an old cemetery that is neat to check out.

Rustic and a beautiful area. Susan is very welcoming. There’s a park with bathrooms next to the white bleachers. Her site is a work in progress. There are chickens and a friendly dog. She has an old timey inside out barn. Very homey feeling.
