About Bob & Ginger Sykes
Bob & Ginger Sykes are refugees (retirees) from 30 years in corporate life. They bought this 60 acre former rural amusement park and decided to create a farm like the one owned by Bob's great uncle in Indiana. With no previous farm experience they have learned much by way of the trial & error method. We decided to give others, particularly children, the opportunity to have the same experiences Bob had as a kid visiting his great uncle's farm.
Bob & Ginger Sykes purchased this House in 2005
Why Bob & Ginger Sykes chose Franklinton
As a former rural amusement park, horse boarding and bull riding facility there were some unique amenities in place and we could quickly share our farm journey with others.

I couldn’t believe how great this home was!
I booked this property to be close to family we were visiting and felt it was well priced considering the availability of hotels , etc the weekend we were there. What I never realized was how beautiful the views would be or that my teenage children would spend hours on the farm visiting the animals and at times even getting along with each other. Loved this property and Bob and Ginger were wonderful! We want to go back again without a doubt.
Excellent get away!! Totally worth the money. Great staycation idea for local people.
We had a great family trip. The kids loved playing fetch with the dog, and all the animals! We loved being in a house with plenty of bathrooms & a kitchen with everything we needed to cook our meals. It just wasn't a long enough stay!
Great time on the farm with amazing hosts!
Bob and Ginger were incredible hosts, greeting us upon arrival, giving us a tour of the home, and immediately responding anytime we had a question. Both their great property and hospitality deserved every 5 star rating. Thank-you both for an amazing time!
We had the best time at Turtle Mist Farms! The owners were super helpful and the property was amazing. It was even better than we imagined. We will be planning a return trip❤
We love this place!
