Wonderful getaway for a family of five!
We had a wonderful two days at the farm! The house is cozy and well stocked - the kitchen has everything you could need and then some - super comfy beds and lots of dry firewood. Our three kids (ages 3-9) had a blast exploring the trails and saying hello to the llamas and emu. The highlight of the trip for them them clearly was getting to take two llamas for a trail hike (!!) but the highlight for us was letting them roam in such a beautiful space. Thanks!
Great Seclusion. Great Kayaking
Three 60+ couples loved this place for a four day fall retreat. It's beyond quiet, off the beaten track and has a great location just minutes from the bay bridge. Doug couldn't be a more charming host. Being on a working farm with Llamas and Emus has its plusses.
The dock and sandy beach launch make kayaking a snap.
Perfect spot to regain your perspective
Just a unique place for a relaxing, restorative, enjoyable weekend. Spent time on the dock taking in the views at sunset and watching the ospreys and eagles. Also took advantage of the well-kept surrounding farmlands for leisurely walks and llama watching.
The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped but close enough to Centreville to visit the local restaurants, if so inclined. If you are wanting for anything, the owners are very gracious and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. Couldn't recommend more highly.
The place was fantastic, and almost magical. We came for a writers retreat and stayed for the water llamas, talked with the bald eagles, and watching emus be emus. Doug was gracious and solicitous as a host, and made sure we had plenty of firewood, candles and advice on the local terroir. We swam in the briny bay as well. We hope to come back soon.
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect place! It was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The highlight was getting to meet Dimitri, the llama! He showed up Saturday morning and the kids loved him. Owner was great as well!
Really helpful and friendly owner!
Good guy, went above and beyond.
