Spring Haven Farm has two home available for short term stays!

HB 2 at Spring Haven Farm - Farmhouse, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

HB2 is a warmly converted horse barn with all the amenities but without the horses. However, you do have a full bedroom, bathroom, large living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, deck and outside area for sitting or BBQ. (Charcoal for the grill is available for $10/package.) You also get a full view of the 3 acre pond, the beautiful night sky (without street lights) and a free range duck might walk by, or a fox might call for her mate in the evening. It's beautiful and comfortable with a fold out futon to sleep four or an inflatable queen bed to sleep six. 
If you like fishing, or would like to try fishing, our 3 acre pond has some large and small mouth bass waiting for you. You don't need a fishing license, nor even a fishing rod, which you can rent from us - $5 for rod and lure. If you want a 2 hour fishing experience for up to 10 people (that's the maximum we can equip), we must schedule it so we are on the property. Two hours of catch-and-release fishing for $75. You might even catch the largest one!

Manor House at Spring Haven Farm - Perfect for getting the family or friends together around the fireplace.

Huge Stone fireplace and 10 foot beamed ceilings make you feel like you are in an Olde English Manor House which is situated on our 15 acre peaceful farm. Truly a country setting. Living Room with it's huge leather sofa and sheepskin throw, office area including wifi, sitting areas for tea or conversation, separate dining room with stone wall from the fire place in the living room. Full kitchen and even a sunroom. Bedroom is cozy and comfortable with beamed ceilings and a tapestry used as a shade for the window. One deck on the main level and another on the upper level for night time viewing of the sky. Second floor has 2 bedrooms with queen beds also. A couple could be quite comfortable just using the first floor (and main bath on second), but the entire house can accommodate six on 3 queen size beds. First floor has a 1/2 bath and one must go up stairs to the full bath (which includes a shower and full tub) on the upper level. 

If you have a problem with stairs, this home is probably not for you since you must go upstairs to the full bath and there is even a stone wall around the house where you must walk up a few stairs to get to the house. Children under 2 years of age free; otherwise they are charged the per person rate.
