“Staying at Our Father’s Farm was such an amazing experience. It is so beautiful and peaceful!!! The drive to the cottage is gorgeous with green pastures filled with cows and horses to captivate you! The location of the cottage is very peaceful. It is a nature lover’s dream. The interior of the cottage is incredibly charming, cozy, and very, very clean. For someone who loves interior design, it is decorated perfectly. The beds and pillows are so incredibly comfortable, which made our stay feel luxurious. It comes with a beautiful kitchen, washer, and dryer. It’s like a dreamy home away from home! Communication with the host is also great and easily accessible. The owner and her family are so friendly. I would highly recommend staying here. You won’t regret it!” – Sonya from India Stayed: 5/2023

“Our stay at Hillcrest House was wonderful and smooth from start to finish! Hope communicated in a timely and clear manner, the house was spotlessly clean, sweet touches made it feel inviting and cozy, we enjoyed the coffee, tea, and other amenities provided, and our family of seven fit very comfortably. Our family’s highlight was the included farm tour the next morning. We were blessed by our time at Hillcrest House and the Fuhrmann family and would highly recommend the house with or without the farm tour to anyone looking for a quiet, refreshing get-away. We hope to return again.” -Katie from Ohio stayed 4/2024
