How to Get There
This was my first out of town trip. We came here to celebrate my Lolo’s 70th Birthday. We booked the place as this is one of the few places I can come with them, as this is really a pet friendly resort. The place is amazing, I have lots of places to run around with the peacocks and the ducks! The resident Doctor was so nice with me she gave me treats every time she saw me.
We booked the Anahaw family villa and the Palmera Suite. I, together with my fur mama and fur papa stayed in Palmera Suite and my lolo, lola and aunties stayed in Anahaw Family Villa. The Palmera suite was nice, (not enclosed) though during the weekday my fur mama asked if we can be moved as there was a construction on-going beside our Suite. We were then moved to Garden Villa. Boy! That was a good move! I enjoyed the enclosed space and I was able to run around freely without leash! The villa and the garden was really spacious.
The pool was also nice only I cannot swim in the public area (so I just enjoyed the bathtub) but I was able to use the slide and roam around freely since I am a well behaved boy, I met some of my fur friends here. Sometimes when I needed to do #2 and my mum forgets to bring my pickup bag, the staffs were so nice to clean after me (sorry!!!).
I heard that the restaurant serves yummy food, though I was not allowed to join my family on meal time, I wish there is a specific place for me and my fur friends so that we can dine with our family and not be left in the Villa. Also, I hope that they will offer some menus for me and my fur friends too.
It was really an enjoyable stay with the family and thank you for making it memorable for me and my family.
P.S. as you are a health conscious resort, can you please offer some light treats for me and my fur friends like boiled carrot and boiled sweet potato (since we are also asked to pay extra for our stay)
The farm at the Biltmore estates was renovated to show what and how a farm operated in the early 1900’s. The individuals who were demonstrating their crafts were informative and enjoyed talking about their craft.
The wood crafter was making brooms and was very knowledgeable. He was excited to talk about his craft that had been passed down through his family.
The gentleman working with iron was working hard demonstrating the technique for making decorative iron leaves ????
i needed a retreat. i wanted peace of mind, and a pause from the busy adult life. i always dreamed of going to a place where i can bond with nature and get a breathe of fresh air. I found this and more at @thefarmatsanbenito . The Farm offers tranquil spaces you can call home for a few days, detox food, plenty of activities meant to both relax and energize one’s body and mind, and a huge area full of the living world. the staff are all friendly and wonderful too! i hope to be able to visit again soon. #TheFarm #TFSB #DayAtTheFarm #premierehealthretreat #atrulywonderfulexperience #ifeelaliveandwhole #oneofthebestbirthdaycelebrations #latepost
