Interaction with Guests
We will be here to greet you, to help you get settled and answer any questions you may have. You are welcome to join us while we do chores on the farm or come visit with us in the house. On the rare occasion we will not be here we are available by phone and will make arrangements for you to let yourselves in.
There is no public transit in our area. But you are welcome to rent a horse or a 4-wheeler and enjoy a relaxing ride along the canal road.
We have one major house rule and that is No Smoking on the premises. With hay, straw, and a barn full of animals we simply will not take the risk. In addition I have severe allergies to cigarette smoke. So no smoking is allowed anywhere on the property.
For your comfort please be aware that the top wire on all our pastures is a hot wire, (electric wire). It will not burn but will deliver a NASTY shock. Please do NOT lean or climb on the wire fences. Especially do not let your children touch the top electric wire.
Our animals and livestock are all people friendly but please check with me before feeding any animals. Just ask and we will be happy to give you a "Farm Tour."
A horse ride. pony ride, or riding lesson can be scheduled but need to be arranged in advance. Pony rides are $15.00 for 30 minutes of riding on a lead line. Trail rides can be scheduled for $30.00 for an hour ride. We will escort you along a quiet, rural canal road.
Our poultry are "free-ranging." Roosters will crow in the morning and turkeys will stroll around the yard. They also "fertilize" the landscape. We recommend wearing closed toe shoes or wear sandals are your own risk. :)
We are happy to accommodate your requests for breakfast. Just let me know in advance.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you sometime!
Victoria and Mike were awesome! Victoria was very quick to reply to all communication (which I love!) and was there to greet us when we arrived. Our children were pleased with the fresh cupcakes and our dog loved the space to run around the farm.
My wife was interested in experiencing the farm life and she was not disappointed! Victoria and her french assistant were kind enough to include her in a variety of farm activities.
Victoria also made us an amazing breakfast and was kind enough to open her kitchen and dining room so that we could make our dinner.
All and all we had a great experience and would definitely book to stay with Mike and Victoria again!
We had a wonderful time at Victoria's. The home is quite welcoming, and the room is cute and quiet. The breakfast we were served was the best part. Delicious French toast, eggs, OJ, and bacon from the neighbor's pig. So so great. A terrific value and experience. We'd love to come back.
We had a great time. The environment was a dream. Almost made me want to move country. Loved the farm animals. The breakfast was so yummy. Thank you. Would love to visit again.
Victoria was so welcoming and thoughtful! She was an excellent communicator and a very hospitable host. My son was having a hard time with the fact that we were moving, and spending the morning "helping" her feed the animals totally made his day and reset his attitude for the trip. He is still talking about the bunnies and horses. :)
The beds were incredibly comfortable, room was cozy and she made us a lovely breakfast. I have Celiac's disease, and she was both familiar with gluten intolerance and made a special batch of gfree pumpkin bread for us.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much again!
Victoria's guest room was a treat to stay in. Fresh air, gorgeous view, and a host who has a knack for anticipating a guest's needs, well really, "wants". Even though I drove in on the later side, Victoria was as charming as (I'm sure) her midday self. Her breakfast was divine, and she was very accommodating to my dietary restrictions.
Victoria & Mike's home is a picturesque farmhouse just as you'd imagine. Horses, sheep, rabbits, ducks, chickens, a peahen, a goat, some cats and dogs. Definitely an animal lover's paradise. The backyard is gorgeous, with a little fire pit and great seating. The guest room is above the garage with a private entrance, making it easy to come and go if needed. Victoria & Mike were happy to show me around the farm and introduce me to the animals. Getting to the farmhouse was a breeze, even though it's a bit far from town. Stunning sunsets and an amazing homemade breakfast.
Victoria made us feel very welcome. She was friendly and flexible and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The house and property are beautiful, right in the middle of farm country. If you love animals you will especially enjoy your time here, there are so many farm animals and her pets are very sweet. I would definitely recommend staying here for a country getaway.

My husband and I are living the dream of building our little "Gentleman's Farm." While we both work full time, (I am a teacher, my husband is an Engineer) we also raise sheep for Fair, FFA, and show lambs. Between the two of us we have four horses and a pony for the grand-kids, the sheep of course, chickens, ducks, a couple of turkeys and one day, peacocks. I ride English and side-saddle and show in eventing and dressage when I can. When we are not busy with the animals we are working in the gardens. I love to garden and am continually improving my vegetable and flower gardens.
My husband and I are history buffs and participate in Civil War re-enacting. My husband is also of Choctaw decent and it is not unusual to see a tipi set up on our backyard or a hide getting tanned. . When he gets a chance to sit down he does some beading or works on leather.
We enjoy meeting new people. It may be a cliche but here you really will, "come as strangers, leave as friends." We look forward to meeting you.
