Set on twelve acres of woods and rolling hills enjoy the quiet and rustic charm of our house. Sip your morning coffee on the back deck or take in a bon fire at twilight. Accommodations include a fully furnished kitchen, W/D and memory foam beds with 1800 count sheets. We have no carpets and do not allow smoking in the house. We do have calves Midnight Red and Tequila Sunrise, and chickens on the property so if you want fresh eggs just ask or stop up to see Macon Bacon our resident pig. We believe in treating people as we would like to be treated so think of us as family while here.
My Great Grandparents purchased this property before 1900. They worked it as a farm for many years including through the depression. My family decided to start up the farm again in 1968 so we raised Registered Jerseys. We were fortunate to know the owners of the Farm where Elsie The Borden cow resided and we were lucky enough to get a great granddaughter of hers. I named her Daisy. We showed Daisy and Clover at the local fairs and won every conceivable ribbon you could imagine. We lived that life for 5 years. It was a good time. My wife and I tore down the old house in 1991 and put up a duplex and recently decided to start the farm again. We have chickens, a pig(Macon Bacon) and two angus/holstein cross calves(Midnight Red and Tequila Sunrise).
Doug and Doris purchased this house in 1890

We were looking for a place to be our home base while visiting area attractions(Essex Steam Train, Gillette Castle, etc..). Doug & Doris' place was perfect and it came along with the experience of being on the farm. Our hosts were warm & inviting. When we arrived there was home baked banana bread waiting for us and they gave us a tour of the farm as they knew we were interested in meeting the animals as well. The accommodations were perfect for the four of us (my brother & his fiance, my mother & myself). We each had our own bedroom and the kitchen had everything we needed. We felt very relaxed there. We would stay there again if in the area.
We had a fantastic time with Doug and Doris. They were very sweet and very accommodating. You didn't even notice they were right next door. The house was very clean and equipped with everything you need.
Our daughters had a great time meeting the animals and enjoying s'mores at night by the camp fire. On our drive home the girls asked when were we coming back. It truly felt like a relaxing home away from home.
We will definitely be back!
We really enjoyed our brief stay. The hosts went out of their way to make us feel comfortable but not at all intrusive. Very peaceful setting in a great town. The house was very well equipped with charming touches, like mints on our pillows. It was a great getaway from all our cares. Thank you!
We stayed at the Farm for one week while visiting our daughter and family in the area. Doug and Doris were very accommodating. We had delicious zucchini bread waiting for us with butter to go along with it. Also had coffee available. The home was very clean with everything you would need (except a full length mirror for us vain ladies😜. Doug was great showing our grandkids the animals. Just remember it's an active farm. If you are city folks you might be surprised by the roosters morning greetings! We would stay again. I loved it!
The house was clean and Doug & Doris were great hosts.
The house is represented very well on the website. Very clean and cozy inside, with spotless linens and towels. We arrived quite late and the owners greeted us with the keys with a smile nevertheless. Regrettably, we needed to leave early in the morning and did not have the opportunity to visit with the animals. (except the chickens came right to our back glass door in the morning and one was sleeping in a deck chair!) Anyway, we would recommend this house to anyone in the area who needs a place that can accommodate up to 8 people. Thank you to our host and hostess.
