About this listing
Our Hobby Farm Cottage is perfect for the traveling horsemen, the solo adventurer, the couple, or the small family looking to get away. It sits overlooking our 10-acre pasture along with 55+ acres of trails, woods, and streams to explore.
I just finished renovating the cottage after almost a year. It's been a slow but fun project as I was able to be a little creative when it came to decorating and what I used for materials. Probably my greatest accomplishment is the countertops that I made from concrete. My mom made the stained glass window in the bedroom. I'll continue to make small revisions to make it as authentic and handmade as possible.
Horseback riding is available upon request. Please let us know in advance if you wish to ride, how many, and for how long. There is an extra charge depending on the type and length of riding you're interested in.
Fresh eggs for breakfast. You can collect them yourself or we can stock the fridge before you arrive. We also have farm raised chickens that you can purchase ($2.50/lb). If you let me know in advance I can have some thawed out for you to cook while you are here.
Interaction with guests
This is our first time hosting so we are eager to please. We've tried to think of ways to make it as accommodating as possible but encourage our guests to let us know if there is anything else we can do to make their stay more pleasant.
Other things to note
The farm is a work in progress so you might catch me there puttering with the animals or the numerous projects I have going. This year it's an outdoor BBQ/processing area, new fencing for pasture rotation, and trail blazing for walking/running, horseback riding, and ATVs. I will let you know if I'm going to be there and what I'll be up to so you can either participate or avoid me. I'll make every effort not to disturb your stay though.
The well water does contain sulfur and Iron which are filtered out but you may still smell the sulfur briefly when you turn on the hot water. It is safe to shower in and drink. The water from the fridge is probably better than most bottled water as it has a reverse osmosis system and is filtered a third time by the fridge itself.
You're welcome to go through any gates, but do not leave any open that aren't already open.
Do not walk behind any horses.
Do not feed any of the animals unless you are given permission.
Do not attempt to ride, chase, or catch any of the animals without permission.
Be careful not to touch the electric fence.
Please, do not open the trap door in the bathroom.
Feel free to explore any of the property.
You can be as loud as you want at any time, day or night.
Please clean heavily soiled dishes and utensils
You'll probably see me there at least a couple times a day tending to animals or other projects. Most generally they are brief visits, but sometimes it might be longer if I need to get something done. I most likely won't bother you, but feel free to bother me:)

I have two young children that warm my soul and challenge me to be the best person I can be.
I'm an engineer working as a business consultant and a wanna be farmer who enjoys being outside.
I constantly push my limits of knowledge, skills and understanding which has proven beneficial in many facets of my life.
I would someday like to be a life coach.
