It would be hard to imagine a more lovely place to stay with kids. We were there with our 2-year-old and were joined part of the time by friends with children as well. The "cottage" is huge, with plenty of room to spread out inside and the whole farm to explore outside. The kids spent a lot of time visiting the goats and the bottle-raised pig in the nearby barn. They splashed in the little stream, climbed the hills to look for the horses, walked the dirt driveway down to the small farm store, and ran barefoot around the large yard. We cooked every night in the well-equipped kitchen and ate delicious corn, greens, lamb and ice cream from the farm store. It felt to me like the perfect farmhouse: rambling and charming and well-loved. It's not the place to go if you're put off by a few upholstery stains or a shower curtain that has seen better days (despite being a little worn in places, though, the house was very clean). For us, it was the ideal vacation and I'm sure we'll visit Holiday Brook again.
