We had a wonderful time and Tony was a great host
We had a wonderful time and Tony was a great host. Very relaxing and also very close to the activities we needed to get to
Comfortable cozy a little bit pricey
Owners very hospitable. Well water very hard causing pipes and fixtures to lime up. Iron in water has bad smell. Water pressure ok unless more than one person is using water at a time.
Over all quiet and nice.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Wind Ridge Herb Farm
We spent 12 enjoyable days in the country. Tony was a perfect host and the farm house was great place for our family to relax instead of a small hotel room. Special treat was meeting the animals. Will stay again if we have the opportunity.
I’ve always felt that my children have missed something by not having grownup on Grandpa’s farm. The simple beauty of earth and sky. This place took me back and weaved it’s charms on my jaded east and west coast young adults traveling companions. From the davenport, it’s not just a couch, to the 4 TV stations, and the sound of well water coming thru the pipes, this guest house delivered the charm and made my kids realize that slowing down is good. They decided to play cards and it’s was fun. Tony is a fabulous host who indulge us with visits to his gentle animals. The grounds are lovely relaxing. The surroundings are a sea of corn and a night sky where you can actually see the stars. I know why I left the farm, but our visit reminds me why the farm is in my heart. Who would want to be in an overpriced, generic rectangle—when you can spread out and relax.
Our hosts, went above and beyond to make sure our stay was incredible. Beautiful property, beautiful people.
A place to breath!
This home is private, quiet, offers beautiful gardens and country setting. The pictures reflect exactly what you will experience. Bike trails are within riding distance and excellent restaurants are nearby. We were welcomed with snacks and fresh breakfast food in the refrigerator, the home was clean and tidy. We did have a couple of speed bumps that were resolved satisfactorily, and would return if we have the opportunity. If your looking for a place that you can slow your life down and breath fresh air, you have found it!
