There’s a host of happy faces waiting to greet you in the town of Danville, in central Kentucky’s bluegrass region. They’re not the typical faces you see at a hotel – most of them have bigger ears; some even have beaks or snouts. Regardless, the faces are all soft and fuzzy, because they belong to a friendly crew of farm animals that ranges from rabbits to sheep to puppies and piglets. These animals are here to provide milk and eggs for the property, because in addition to being a lovely lodging, this Southern estate is a working farm.
Here to help you navigate the property are other friendly (human) faces, who can get you all set on your new pastoral pastimes. If you’ve never milked a goat, now’s your chance – if you have, you might want to try collecting chicken eggs or grooming a mini horse. Meanwhile, you can enjoy two of the other property highlights all on your own. To see a glorious sunset, just step outside around dusk. And to see the other stars of the farm that aren’t the animals, stay outside afterward, and look up to the hundreds of visible constellations.
Rooms and suites
The Farm’s nine rooms are decorated individually, each with a sense of classic Southern graciousness, through details like vintage lamps and floral textiles. Farm Specialty suites are more spacious than the Farm Standard rooms and feature lovely additions, like a reading area or gorgeous farmland view.
The property’s abundant farmland allows for relaxing strolls and gives you many places to clear your head. Fishing, gardening and stargazing are all possible, as are happy play dates with your new, furry friends. Should you decide to explore the area, visits to local restaurants, shopping and historic sites throughout the Bluegrass region, as well as Bourbon tours, are also easy to set up, and the Great American Dollhouse Museum isn’t too far. If you crave something a bit faster-paced, the cities of Lexington and Louisville are 40 and 80 minutes away, respectively.
How to Get There
We just completed our stay in this beautiful home and found it to be everything the listing said it was and more. Four brothers and their wives met there for a long weekend. There were beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone! The home provided dining space and all we needed when we opted to cook a meal there. The area has many great places to dine out including a wonderful bakery. There are several great outdoor spaces including a courtyard, a deck and a front porch. We felt very comfortable in the well kept Clark home.
Working with Jacob was perfect! He handled our questions and requests with ease. I would not hesitate to book with him again.
Second stay, this time in Marigold's Roost, one of the little newer cabins built next to the main house. One queen bed in the first floor bedroom, I think it was a full bed in the loft. No stove in the kitchen but it has a toaster oven, fridge, sink, and a couple other appliances. The back porches of the cabins are large and would be fun to sit out on in warm weather, we visited in December, but it was still nice to look at. Breakfasts were delicious again. Great place to relax. The owners of The Farm are very kind and a pleasure to deal with, hopefully we will deal with them again this year!
We couldn't have been happier with the accomodations and the friendliness of the staff. Two of us enjoyed staying in a cabin while the other six were put up in a house at the entrance to the property. We were treated to fantastic breakfast buffets at extremely reasonable pricing.
The rooms were clean and comfortable.
This was the perfect place for us as a center of all of our activities with our coach and his family.
If you're looking for peace and quiet, you've found it at the Farm. The property is nearby some residential properties but also bounded by other farm properties.
I for one will make a trip back to the Farm at least once in the next year.
