The apartment has a complete kitchen, a separate bedroom, as well as a queen size Murphy bed in the large livingroom. Some windows look down into the horse stalls below, while others look over pastures full of horses, goats and alpacas. In addition to sunshine, you may wake up to the sound of our donkey" hehawing" for breakfast! (Due to the nature of our farm, we have a "No Pets" policy).
