I’ll review this property based on a wonderful experience., but there is things you need to know. It’s not criticism, it’s information for your visit, which I encourage you to take. We spent Thanksgiving here.
Emma and Angela were excellent hosts. The trails, horses, and decorations made the weekend.
Okay city folk, if you don’t know how to work a wood stove, figure that out before you get here. That is the main heat in the house. There are electric heaters in the bathroom and bedrooms on the 2nd floor, but you will need the wood stove.
If you plan on cooking here is information you’ll need. The pictures of the kitchen showed an old style white gas range which I was excited to cook Thanksgiving dinner on, it was decoration. The actual stove was a tiny range the size of an RV range as is the refrigerator. There is a convection toaster oven.
Bring your own cookware. Cookware provided consists of 3 fry pans and a 2 quart sauce pan, which were nonstick at one time, but no longer. Good knives. I pulled off dinner by military training. Adapt and overcome. I used every trick I knew. Using all resources, including the Weber charcoal grill at the fire pit.
There is no TV. So I missed the football games, but that’s okay the Lions lost, again. There are games provided, which brings me to the next thing you need to know. The lighting in the dining room is awful. Which isn’t bad except when trying to play Trivial Pursuit. We had to use the flashlight on our phones to read the cards. The WiFi is passable.
Bring apples and carrots for the horses and cracked corn for the ducks. They are delightful.
In the area. The Oakdale Bar and Grill is great. Kroger and Pizza Hut are in Monticello, IN, 18 minutes away. Tippecanoe Battlefield is 30 minutes as is the Wolf Park.
