About Doug and Doris

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

Very comfortable home, perfect for our brief stay while visiting nearby Franklin Academy. We loved the farm animals and really appreciated the home baked goods.

Doug and Doris, We enjoyed staying in your very comfortable and spotlessly clean property. Thank you for your hospitality. It was neat waking up to the sight of the baby calf frolicking beyond the fence. Vaunie and Bill Graulty

Immaculate home, scenic grounds and friendly hosts to let us wander property

  • 5 of 5

Beds truly were comfortable. Suggest becoming familiar with thermostat as the room my daughter was sleeping in got very cold at night but didn't want to wake her fiddling around. Also suggest bringing bottled water to drink if you're sensitive to the sulfur smelling well water. All around an enjoyable stay!
