What you'll do

Opt for some "pandemic busting" when you engage with
Al, Gus and Smudge as your new "secret" friends for the afternoon! Hidden on a country lane amidst 86 acres of "holler", you can hug a donkey, brush, feed carrots, and celebrate this hidden opportunity to share some secrets with Al, Gus or Smudge. Individually packaged snacks and drinks will anchor this opportunity in our restored barn. Situated along a rambling creek, this farm venture includes private time with a donkey. You may wish to book a private group option to have this space/venue all to yourselves. Whatever your special day, share these moments in fresh air with friends-- have a sync with nature, or just push your "reset" button. These guys won't tell your secret, judge you, and they, definitely won't offer any advice--- Promise!
Other things to note:
Ages four and up may participate in this experience. You will need a designated adult caretaker for anyone under seven. Outdoor restroom with a hand sanitizing station is available. We follow airbnb experience guidelines. T- shirt included-- the donkeys want to see you are on "their team"!

Where you'll be

We will start our experience in our historic, restored Kentucky barn. You may park right near the barn). We will introduce you to the donkeys and you will become friends very quickly! If you have a discussion "topic" in mind, we will give you some time to share with Al, Gus, or Smudge. They are very good listeners and will "lend their ears" to anything you wish to say--

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 22 reviews.

This experience was more than we hoped it would be. The donkeys were amazing and all of them had a personality of their own. I got to brush Big Al and he was as calm as could be. My girlfriend hung out with smudge the mini and got to know him. The hosts were knowledgeable, comforting and showed us a great time on their beautiful, quiet, 90 acre property. Calm and Serene were our words of the day. We will definitely be back if we find ourselves near Augusta again! PS: Make sure to look for Boo when you’re walking around. Friendliest and softest cat I have ever seen!

This is an extremely fun and informative experience! Totally perfect location and my oh my...those donkeys! They all have different personalities and you bond so quickly. Having cookies by the fire and listening to the water rushing by was so relaxing. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and make some new handsome and sometimes naughty donkey friends!

This was our second visit with Al, Smudge and Gus - we looked forward to our return visit ever since June and this was just as much fun as the first! :) Celine and Ron are wonderful hosts and facilitators. We had a great time with them and the donkeys. We spent time grooming and petting the donkeys like we did last time and then we took photos of the donkeys for our Christmas card! And we laughed so much - it was like getting together with old friends. We’ll be back for sure! :)

I cannot say enough nice things about Celine and her husband Ron. They are very thoughtful and caring people who take great care of their animals and attention to the guest experience. We booked the experience for my children but turns out the adults needed the donkey therapy and the kids needed to run around in the fresh air. Everyone was happy. We will be back again : )

Awesome experience for animal lovers...and those who claim they aren't are sure to be won over by Al, Gus, and Smudge! The donkeys were so calm and friendly. We got to spend lots of quality time with them, including time out in their open field while they happily grazed. Celine is very knowledgable about the donkeys and taught us lots. You can tell how much she cares for them! By the end of our time at the farm, I had almost forgotten it was an Airbnb experience, it felt like we were just hanging around the fire sharing food, drinks, and conversation with friends! Goes to show what welcoming and excellent hosts Celine and her husband are. They made us feel right at home.

A two-time visitor to the donkeys and to Celine's beautiful oasis close to Cincinnati. The beautiful surroundings curated with excellent stewardship and eco-consciousness are uplifting. The engagement with our hosts -- just as much as we want or need, but no more. A thoughtful approach to the history of donkeys and their qualities, including a before-and-after KWL style chalkboard activity (Hello! Teaching!). Hip and elegant decorating and design to barn, patio, and other elements of the experience. Very important -- a tidy outdoor potty. Most important, a relaxing time to recuperate from a personal health crisis and the personal engagement with Smudge, Al, and Gus. Coming again ASAP...
