My two adult kids and I stayed in the City Lights cottage for two nights. Sue was my contact via email and Rachel was my point of contact once we arrived. Both were very sweet and helpful and communicated in a timely manner.
The view is absolutely amazing! The first thing we did was walk around the farm and feed the animals with bread that was supplied. Such a nice thing to do after a long morning of travel. Our cottage had fresh wild flowers and a little sign welcoming us by name. All beds and furniture were comfortable and clean. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking your own meals.
Probably the best part of our stay (other than the fabulous view) was when we were sitting on the porch drinking coffee our first morning and two kid goats came running over to great us. So cute!! Also their dogs came for friendly visits throughout our stay. A very special space that has a good feel.
