The farm is even more beautiful in person! It is an absolutely lovely place. We were greeted by one of the owners, Paul, and his two sweet dogs. Paul gifted us with a loaf of bread and a dozen farm fresh eggs, which made for some simply delicious breakfasts. Between the two of us, my partner and I couldn't help but polish them both off in two days.
We loved the layout of the Bunkhouse, which is simultaneously cozy and functional. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals, and the fireplace was perfect for both warmth and atmosphere. Our dog spent most of his time sleeping in front of it. We loved that the Bunkhouse comes with a semi-private patio and hot tub located just outside the front door, although the rainy weather did not permit us to use either. But we could see how nice it would be to spend some time out there, just reading, eating, or soaking, while taking in the quiet beauty of the surrounding gardens.
We did brave the rain for a short time in order to walk around the farm and meet some of the animals. The property is gorgeous and it is fun to meander around to meet the pony, donkey, chickens, Highland cows and sheep.
Our goal was to get away from the city for a weekend, hole up somewhere peaceful and remote (but with easy access to a town/ amenities), and the Bunkhouse at Free Will Farm fit the bill. The only negative thing I can say was that the bed we slept in was very uncomfortable. The mattress was soft and lumpy, and it somehow sussed out my body's weak spots and made them worse. I did not sleep well at all. The rest of our time there was so pleasant, though, that the lack of good sleep was practically a non-issue. I did not talk to the owners about it because maybe it was just us? But I also do think it is worth mentioning.
All in all, a wonderful place to stay. I recommend it.
