  • Norma and Patrick were good hosts. It was fun to be around all the animals. Great place to stay if you want a real farm experience.

  • I had been working (away from home) for an extended period in the Baltimore area. I needed to escape the city, relax, and concentrate on completing some work on my computer. (Yes, the farmhouse has wireless internet service!)

    The farmhouse was quiet (but not too quiet) with lots of personal memorabilia that provided an interesting distraction (when I needed to take a break). The bedroom was clean and exactly as advertised, including the quilts (which appeared to be handstiched).

    The hosts are equestrians with facilities for keeping guest horses happy. They also have a golden retreiver, who (with his own ball) will soon involve a guest with a game of fetch (and return).

    After I finished my work, I found the hosts to be excellent conversationalists, who would share some very interesting stories of their travels to exotic places around the world and about the simple & crazy pleasures of family life at home. They are friendly and unpretentious (i.e., standard american) folks.

    I found my stay to be an excellent bargain. Hopefully, I will return (with my wife) for a (very) pleasant stay.

  • Norma and Patrick are gracious hosts. Serene setting.

  • Norma and her family were wonderful. The farm was beautiful and it was a great experience for my children and I. My girls thought the farm was the best part of our vacation. Thank you everything. I highly recommend if you are visting the DC area or traveling like we were a stay here.

  • It was wonderful staying with Norma, Patrick, Ryan, and Lusa. (other family were not home at the time.)
    They invited me to a family dinner, where we had delicious food, and good conversation.
    The house is a beautiful house with comfy rooms and features. I loved petting the horses and ponies, seeing chickens (and a goose who thinks it's a chicken), dogs....
    The coffee/tea machine and condiments, and breakfast were nice touches too.
    The surroundings are beautiful and I felt I had a real get-a-way.

  • Our stay with Norma and Patrick was great. We found them to be knowledgable and informative hosts. The rooms were comfy and we were made to feel at home. Would recommend this stay to others for a real life American family experience. :)

  • We had a wonderful stay at the farmhouse. Norma and Patrick were great hosts, the quilt room was cozy, and we were glad to have such a peaceful spot to get away to during the holidays.

  • I absolutely loved my time at this delightful B&B. It was an adventure living in a "real" farmhouse, and such a peaceful experience. But the highlight really was the wonderful hosts: Norma, Patrick, and Ryan. I can honestly say I felt like I made friends for life. I enjoyed and valued the long conversations I had with each one of them. I miss them and miss being there. I am now looking forward to staying in touch with them and making a point to visit periodically. This was my second reservation.

    Note: Overlapping with my stay was an older woman staying in the "Hydrangea Room." Unfortunately this person chose to behave as if she were a bat-poop crazy cross between Cruella de Vil + the sadistic Miranda Priestly of "The Devil Wears Prada." This guest verbally abused the hosts in a vicious manner--and this despite the hosts bending over backward to help her out. (E.g. The guest had no computer, so the hosts allowed her to use theirs.) I was present when Cruella admitted to one of the hosts that she stuck gum to the webcam of the family computer. (It seemed to me to be a reaction based on paranoia.) This guest also made patently false allegations that the owners did not care for their cats. The two kitties were very well-cared for, clean, healthy with plump little bellies. In fact all the animals on the farm are lovingly and professionally cared for. It's a testament to the professionalism of the hosts that they were unflappable and gracious always. They made sure I enjoyed my stay to the utmost, and decided to show the impossible guest the door.
    So if there's a negative review on the "Hydrangea room" you can safely ignore it.
