If you plan to ask to bring a Pets: Your pet must be VERY friendly and get along well with others. I have 4 dogs on the property as well as a pot bellied pig, a few barn cats and the occasional chicken that flys the coop and free ranges. Your pet must not put any of my pets in harms way. Your pet must be up to date with all vaccinations and flea medication. You will be financially responsible for any and all accidents that occur with any of my animals or yours, due to bringing your pet onto the farm. Please think this thru before asking to bring your pet. This is my beloved animals home.

I DO NOT OFFER HORSEBACK RIDING.

About Theresa King

I'm a polo player, fox hunter and former DC investment banker. I live on a private horse farm I created myself from a raw cornfield. I'm a huge animal lover. The farm is home to my pot bellied pig named Flower, 4 dogs, various barn cats and usually anywhere from 6-25 horses, and numerous chickens. I run a little cottage business called (website hidden) and I create various products from recycled plastic feed bags. Come enjoy my private setting and bring a horse or two if need be. Just ask about stabling!

Theresa King purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

Take a stroll around my beautiful gravel path vegetable garden. Rub the belly and feed Flower my pet Pot bellied pig. Gather eggs from my chickens if you fancy! Pet the horses!

Absolutely perfect stay, im already planning on a return visit!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away from our hectic schedule and unwind and Theresa's guest house was perfect. Everything from the immaculate, well appointed guest house to the pool which is just steps away from your front door, we were able to unwind and reconnect in a way that truly made the vacation memorable. I highly recommend contacting Theresa and visiting her beautiful horse farm, it's like being at home but much better.

Absolutely unbeatable vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't cover all the awesomeness of this property in the 2490 characters vrbo allows in a review. This was one of the very best vacations our family of three (plus small dog) have EVER taken. The home is immaculate, the pool and outdoor space is nothing short of amazing (and y'all, this pool is not just an average pool / tons of upgraded features to cater to every preference), the views/location are spectacular and even though you are outside of town, you are only a few miles from Aiken's charming downtown filled with restaurants, shops and *rich* history. All of that is terrific but Theresa and company (her precious team of animals) really make this a special place. Thelma, Poncho, Jake, Ditch, Daisy and Oscar were our greeters and protectors (Thelma and Poncho especially). The beautiful horses invoke a peace into your soul while you sit by/in the pool and soak up the sun. Although the owner is close by, she is not obtrusive at all and you don't even realize she is there. She was gracious enough to allow our 5yo to help gather eggs and feed the animals (including Flower, the pot bellied pig). The house comfortably accommodated our family of 3 (small child), but isn't really designed for anything much larger. The house was constructed on the 'tiny house' concept and every inch is maximized with clever storage options and optimized space utilization. The kitchen is well appointed and has plenty of space for cooking meals and enjoying them either at the bar or outside on the VERY nice outdoor furniture (including terrific chaise lounges around the pool). Pool towels are provided, and there is extra bedding if the downstairs pullout is used. Bluetooth connection is available for the outdoor/indoor sound system so you can listen to your music (or the radio) while enjoying the pool. The owner has truly thought of everything! We literally just left today (7.20), and I am writing this review from the car so folks can start planning their own trip - we are already discussing a return! Do yourself a favor and branch out from the usual beach or mountain vacation and plan a trip to LIGARA Farm where you can experience this place / you will not be disappointed!! The ONLY disappointment will be when you checkout and leave Theresa and the animals (especially Thelma, in our case) in the rear view mirror.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The property is beautiful, the house was perfect and the pool was so relaxing! Thelma, the poolhouse dog was the sweetest and we loved having her around. The house had everything we needed and it was truly the perfect oasis. We plan on returning very soon!

We were in aiken to deal with a family emergency and this retreat was well needed during the down time. A peaceful setting and the owner was a delight to work with.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay! The cottage was lovely and the surroundings were beautiful! Loved the outdoor seating areas and the pool! The home was well stocked with cooking utensils, appliances, and everything you needed- including fresh farmhouse eggs from the farm. We loved the animals and missed "Thelma" and the other dogs, the moment we left! Could not have been more pleased with this rental. Enjoyed meeting Theresa and her animals.

Lovely time at this Aiken, SC property

  • 5 of 5

We are familiar with Aiken, having stayed there many times over the past nine years, but this time we wanted a different sort of accommodation so we chose this property. We loved it! Situated on Theresa's beautiful farm, it was very quiet and private, yet convenient to town. The "Pool House" is charming, nicely appointed and very well built. The entire property is extremely tidy, and the house was very clean. If you want to cook, the galley kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and other cooking essentials. We ran around so much during our stay we used the coffee maker and the microwave once or twice, but otherwise just stocked the fridge with cool drinks. Our stay coincided with very warm temps, so having our own pool could not be beat! We loved the low-key visits from our "loaner dogs", Pancho and Thelma, who stood in for our crew who were left at home. As horse people, it was nice to see the gorgeous horses, but not have to do the work! Theresa was a perfect hostess, very unobtrusive, but there if you needed anything. Most of the time we felt as if we were the only ones there, which was nice. A couple of things to bear in mind: the spiral staircase is quite narrow, so if you have infirmities this might not be the place for you. We were there at a very hot time, and if you are, too, get your A/C going as soon as you get in as the sleeping area is a loft so it takes a while to cool down in those challenging temps. In more moderate temps this might not be an issue. We loved it, and would definitely stay with Theresa again.
