What a wonderful visit! Great communication before and a nice level parking spot in their driveway. Enjoyed good conversation around a welcoming fire. Pam and Joe are interesting folks and we would love to visit them again.

What a great experience this was! Pam and Joe were so hospitable! I loved their space and really enjoyed the animals: Rio and the very cute goat family! Not forgetting Ginger, the dog! I discovered Camanche village and lake thanks to their guidance and had an incredible time exploring the area. Thank you so much Pam and Joe for everything!

Kids agreed the baby goats here were the highlight of our road trip. Thanks for the help parking and tour of the farm. On top of that, we all slept well.

Spent one night here and had zero complaints. Hosts were very welcoming and had a great conversation once we had got parked. Left the next morning after a great nights sleep.
