A Beautiful and Well-Appointed Farm Vacation Setting!
The pictures in this listing are beautiful, but don't do justice to this extraordinary farm vacation setting! We were an extended family of 13 looking for a getaway destination large enough to accommodate our numbers, and rural enough to be able to breathe fresh air and be our loud, happy selves. Christa's farm fit the bill perfectly! The main floor bed and bath were ideal for grandma, while the rest of us arranged ourselves in the other bedrooms and on the pull-out couch. The young cousins loved sharing the room that sleeps four. Kitchen, dining and common areas also accommodated our large group with ease. Half a dozen or more could work in the kitchen at once and we all sat comfortably around two tables pulled together. Two common seating areas, including one with windows on three sides, allowed multiple conversations, gentle breezes and a stunning view. For a longer stay, the laundry facilities are a real plus. The whole house was decorated with a mix of new and antique furniture that is both attractive and practical. And what a breathtaking setting! With its south orientation, the house and it's front porch overlook several well-maintained out buildings including a charming stone honey house and, beyond, rolling meadows, cultivated fields and the pond. The property is large enough to organize a game of pick-up baseball and thoughtfully appointed for a variety of activities; treehouse, hammock, picnic table, fire pit, canoe, pedal boat, kayaks, picking apples and pears, taking a walk or settling into a shady spot to watch the world go by. Christa dropped by shortly after we arrived to see that we had settled in, and invited us to call if we needed anything. But we had no need! It was as if every aspect of our stay had been considered and each of our needs anticipated. Christa's notes to us were clear, and the house and property are well-appointed and maintained. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived and had a fabulous time. We are 100% satisfied with our booking and can't wait til next time! Thanks for everything, Christa and family!
