Nancy was an outstanding host, and the studio was so perfect for our stay. Having the garden was such an incredible bonus! Fresh veggies, fresh eggs, oh my! We will definitely be going back. Nancy also recommended a great restaurant in town (Boca) where the we enjoyed fabulous steak, wine and dessert. Can't wait to visit again!

Hi - Nancy is a wonderful Host and we really enjoyed her farm. We ended up arriving very late both times we stayed there but Nancy had provided some fresh eggs and bread and butter, a great coffee maker too. The water from the tap is delicious. She made it easy to find the entrance to the farm and our cottage even though we were bleary eyed and arriving at 2 AM The kitchens are very nice and functional. The bathrooms and showers are also comfortable and work well. She also has a hot tub and sauna. We were busy and didn't get to use them but wish we could have. Also, she has wonderful outdoor sitting areas all over the farm and offers her fresh produce for your dinner as well. The cottages are clean, nicely laid out and interesting. The farm, while small is a working farm with chickens and her new mini pigs among other residents. It isn't manicured like a golf course. There are lots of things going on at the farm and so it looks that way. And as a farm you need to remember to shut the gates! We loved our stay, convinced a friend to come the second week, and plan to return. We highly recommend it!
