Bookings
The River Farm affects people personally. Visitors have, over the years, shared with us their reactions to being here, mostly through their reflections in the visitors' book. Because we have been so moved by these reactions, we want to share them, in turn, with other past and potential visitors to the valley. These reviews are visitor's personal reflections on their stay in the valley.

Sit

Cuddle up with a book from your private library. Doze off on the deck or in a hammock. Sit by the water’s edge. DreamĀ of big fish to catch on the jetty. Catch those big fish! Sit on our little beach with your feet in the mountain stream. Watch the terrapins swim in our farm dam. Picnic at the shaded swimming spots.
