Incredible getaway for the family

Just returning to "reality" after a 3-nighter at the farm and am still blown away by how much the entire family really enjoyed the accommodations and the time together. The farmhouse itself is anything but a "farmhouse". It includes everything you need to enjoy the overnight(s)...up to and including soap and shampoo dispensers in every shower. The kitchen is fabulous and well stocked with all the silverware and cooking tools that you need to produce some great family meals. All appliances are relatively new and in perfect working condition. The place is spotless from cleanliness perspective and beautifully decorated. There's a full entertainment center with Directv, DVR, dvd player and free wi-fi. The master bedroom also has a flatscreen on the wall.
The grounds are clean, just like the house, and there's plenty of free space for the kids to run and stay out of trouble. Rarely do you see a car on the road as it is off the beaten path and just the right recipe for what we ordered. There's also a very large patio with table and chairs and a cast iron fire pit for use. Separately, you have the front porch as seen in the pics on the site and another deck that houses a picnic table and grill.
Had some time to spend with Chris to talk about the farm and he was gracious enough to take the kids through the barn to show them the chicks along with the baby pigs and nesting chickens.
Prior to your arrival, I would schedule to have some food delivered to your fridge so that you can partake in some of the delicious product yielded from the farm. We ordered the farm fresh eggs, jowl bacon (incredible) and some of the italian pork sausage that we used to make meatballs. The rest of the items were placed in the freezer so that we could transport home for future use.
All in all relaxing, time well spent weekend with family that will never be forgotten...and probably to be repeated again next year. If you're looking for some quality time with family and/or friends in the country then I can't think of a better place to recommend.
