We enjoyed our stay but, there was not many kitchen utensils for cooking and baking. We had to buy everything even the salt and pepper which I think is ridiculous. We found aunts on the counter and insects inside the cupboards which I did not appreciate. The outside cupboards were dirty and sticky. One of the blanket had stain on it. I think for the price I paid for the condo I think the cleaning should be include.
This place is totally amazing! Valerie and Brad are such kind and considerate hosts, and their charming little farm is straight out of a storybook! The drive to Gabe's Getaway is scenic and easy. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by the most handsome alpacas! The barn was decorated in lovely fall colors and holiday lights. The apartment is modest, clean, cosy and warm, with a little section for kids to read and learn about all the different animals who live on the farm. In the morning, we made coffee, provided by our hosts, and walked our two dogs around the grounds to meet the animals. The most delightful menagerie of animals came to greet us, including the two pigs, two baby goats, two sheep, two ducks and three horses. Our dogs were over the moon to meet so many new animals! Valerie and Brad came out to greet us and share a little history of their beautiful farm. They showed our kids how to feed the horses and even let them walk the alpacas, while Valerie taught us all about what makes alpacas so unique! We had a wonderful experience! (Thanks too, Valerie, for the tip about scheduling our JMU campus visit around the football game traffic! Super helpful!) We highly recommend this place!
