Need more rooms? A separate, additional room upstairs in the house with 1 queen size bed may be available. Please send an inquiry if additional space is needed.
Breakfast can be added to your stay if requested. Please message for details.
Our typical full breakfast menu is:
Strawberry cream cheese stuffed french toast
Cheesy scrambled eggs made from our farm fresh eggs, collected daily
Bacon or sausage from our home raised pig
muffins or pastries
A simple continental breakfast can be provided also.
If you have special dietary needs we can create a gluten free or low-carb, low-sugar meal if needed.
Because we are quite rural there are limited dining choices nearby. For a nominal fee we can also provide a home cooked, light evening meal the day of your arrival if you don't feel like going back into town for fast food. ;) Just let me know in advance.
Celebrating a special occasion? Let us know and we can provide a decorated bottle of sparkling cider and hand-dipped chocolate strawberries in your room. Or schedule a Victorian Tea in the Music room or under our Pergola. Contact us for prices.
We are 1 hour 10 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport, 1.5 hours from Lava Hot Springs and 3-4 hours south of Jackson, WY or Yellowstone National Park. Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake is 45 min South and the beautiful Logan Canyon is 40 min East.
Stay for a night on your way to somewhere else or stay for a day or two to relax and enjoy our farm lifestyle. Depending on the time of year you stay we may have lambs to bottle feed, sheep to shear, a garden to harvest and there are always eggs to collect. We have ponies and carts. Pony rides are available for children. ($15.00 for 30 minutes, per pony, of riding on a lead line) or cart rides for children and adults.
No smoking allowed on premises - indoors or out! Wireless internet, truck and trailer parking available.
We look forward to meeting you and helping create a memorable experience you will always remember.
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.
Other things to note
Please check with me prior to booking if you would like to schedule additional activities - i.e. meals, pony rides, etc.... These add-ons are available when I am available and conditions, (i.e. weather) are accommodating.
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!

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.
