5/5 Excellent

Absolutely perfect!
Our family spent the last week (over New Year’s) at this farm, and it was absolutely wonderful! In fact, we are already planning a return trip next Christmas holiday. Pamela and her husband were great hosts. I was able to help carry the baby alpaca to its pasture in the mornings, get the goats from the barn to their pasture, etc. They let you be as involved (or non-involved) as you want. The mornings were so peaceful walking around saying good morning to all the animals and giving them snacks. I can’t wait to go back! The house itself was perfect for what we needed. It’s very simple (in a good way!), so we brought our kids’ tvs and gaming systems from home. This way they weren’t “bored” as teenagers tend to get. The layout was great, and there were plenty of towels, etc. A grocery store is only about 10 mins down the road, so it was very convenient. If you are contemplating staying here, absolutely do it! You won’t regret it.

Ranch family vacation
Pamela is very responsive and helpful. This is our second stay and the kids love interacting with the animals. We as parents love that they can go outside and play and have independence. This property is great to get away and really enjoy as a family

Peaceful stay in horse country
Nice little get away spot. Peaceful, rolling hills. Shaded property. Super nice owners! The animals are nice to be around. But, the home is on 5 acres of its own, so if getting up close to the animals is not your thing, just enjoy the peace and quiet.

5/5 Excellent

Very nice property and very nice people to deal with
The property was really nice and clean and my grandkids enjoyed all the animals they could feed really really nice owners
