Our little guest house affectionately referred to as 'The Hobbit House' is located on our farm here at Scottland Yard! We boarder Hammond Hill state forest, with access to miles of hiking, hunting and skiing trails.
The well appointed wee house is 16×16′ with a large bathroom, kitchen, common area downstairs and a pull out queen serta sofa bed. The bedding and mattress protector are provided in the storage closet. In the loft you will find a comfortable double bed made with (silk feel) 100% bamboo sheets as well as 1 fold up 4″ twin floor mattress with provided bedding in the closet. For our guests comfort and well being, all beds are REQUIRED to be made with the mattress protectors provided! Bath and Turkish beach towels are also provided. The kitchen in this area has a wee under counter fridge with a tiny freezer, a fancy cuisine art air fryer convection toaster oven, coffee pot, 2 burner electric hotplate, and a blender. All cooking and eating utensils are provided. The ship ladder going to the loft is just that….a structurally sound permanently attached wooden ship’s ladder. They are steep. Please refer to the picture of the ladder for a nice visual look at them! **Due to the danger of the steep ship ladder to the bedroom, we recommend that families with children under five do not choose this unit. Outside you have a lovely deck with a bistro table, grill and a little fire pit. The peacocks can often be found roosting on your pergola and the chickens scratching in your yard! You mustn’t leave your door open and unattended or they may decide to make themselves at home and move right in with you, yes really!
After a short walk you will find our Mercantile store, our Traveler’s trunk boutique and beautiful natural pool for swimming and relaxation. Every child 5 and under, or any non swimmer, must provide their own life jacket when in or around the pond. If any non swimmers are occupying the space without a life-jacket, they will be asked to leave the area.
The natural pool’s beauty and tranquility is complete with a lovely waterfall and our pet Koi! The Koi are always eagerly awaiting their koi treats from our guests. These treats can be purchased for $1 from our small Mercantile store along with horse treats, rabbit treats and bird treats. The mercantile also has snacks, local wine, honey and beer along with camp cooking supplies you may have forgotten. Our fun little travelers trunk boutique has some interesting finds from our travels as well as local homemade items!
There is a natural pool, swinging tree hammocks, children’s playground, bistro tables everywhere, coin op laundry mat with 2 washers and 2 dryers and plenty of farmland to explore!
