Most of our guests are a good mix of the two extremes. One of our guests was a young man from New Jersey. He was looking for some peace and quiet during his vacation from being a livery driver in the New York City area. He spent nearly a week here. He was able to visit the barn and see the animals and he also got to watch us bale some hay. He also had plenty of time to just sit and relax and read or watch movies or just go for a walk. He was able to visit some of the 1000 islands but one of his favorite activities was to share dinner with us as a family every evening!
We had a family from New York City that spent about a week here. They have relatives that live in Ecuador and they have some cattle, so the hope was that the children could see some cows here so they have a better idea of what their relatives have in Ecuador. They enjoyed the time that they could spend in the barn petting and feeding the calves as well as getting some fresh squeezed milk from the cows. :) They were really taken in by the amazing sunsets and sunrises; something they don't see very much of in the big city. They were here over July 4th and so we took them along to see one of the firework displays in the area. While they had seen many firework displays before on tv this was the first one they saw in person. So they really enjoyed that! They actually came back another year over July 4 so they could go see the fireworks display again. They enjoyed many of the other attractions in the area as well while they were here. They also enjoyed dinner with us most of the evenings and one evening they prepared a Spanish meal for us for dinner! It was a great time for all of us!
We had a family from Syracuse, NY that spent a weekend here. They had 3 special needs boys and it is hard for them to find a place to visit where the boys all enjoy themselves. They decided to try our farm and it was just the ticket for them! They had one boy that really enjoyed being in the barn helping with chores another of the boys got along real well with one of our sons and enjoyed reading some of the books that our son had. The third boy just had a blast playing with toys and video games. So since the boys were all enjoying themselves, the parents also could relax and enjoy their time here! We were glad it worked for them and enjoyed sharing our lives with them.
That is really just a sample of the variety of people that come to stay in our cabin! We would be glad to host you as well!
