Down Home R&R
Some people love the city; the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the constant stream of new people, even the big lights and loud noises that come from living in close quarters with tens of thousands of other people. Then there are times where those hardcore city folk just need to get away, and the question then becomes, where do they get away too? Hotels are in the city, which is what they are trying to escape, as are most B&Bs. So why not try a farm vacation, and see how quickly you can relax with a little fresh air and gorgeous views.
Though it may not sound relaxing at first, staying on a working farm and helping out with the various chores that keep the place running; a little manual labor, followed by a big farmhouse dinner, could be just what you need for a great weekend getaway. There are families across the country that have opened their homes, and barns, to visitors looking for the farm life experience; whether it’s milking the cows, feeding the chickens, or even collecting berries for homemade pies and jams. What happens after all the work is done and the sun goes down? You can slide into a front porch rocking chair with a piece of hot fresh pie and some sweet sun tea and watch the sun go down over the horizon.
Peace and Quiet
Not looking for quite so much the farm life experience as the peace and serenity that can only be found in the middle of a star filled night surrounded by trees or open fields? Whether it’s a ranch on the Nebraska plains or a farm tucked into the Tennessee mountains, farms across the nation offer a peaceful stay in a private cabin, complete with fireplace, set in floor tubs, and sometimes even a full service day spa. Afterwards, lay in the grass under and old oak tree and watch as the stars light up the night sky.
City life is busy, noisy and always moving. What better way to step back from the structured chaos and enjoy some much needed relaxation than to spend a weekend on a farm, enjoying life the way it was meant to be enjoyed?
