Frequently asked questions


  • C.Hendricks

    I was in need of a quiet nature break and that is exactly what I got! I stayed in the Thatch Cabin, which gave me the wild nature experinece I was after. I loved walking around the farm and sitting beside the river. I felt very safe as a woman on my own. The cabin was well equipped and I appreciated the condiments supplied. The owener, Tim, was great with communication and I received a warm welcome from him with eggs from the farm! review

    Wonderful nature experience
