The Herds Inn…

Home away from home. Visit with us on our 50 acre dairy farm.

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and come to the country. The Herds Inn is located on a quiet country dairy farm and offers a perfect family vacation, romantic getaway, or weekend with friends.

If you need to unwind, relax, and enjoy time with your family and friends the Herds Inn offers you just that opportunity. You can breathe in the fresh air as you enjoy the picturesque views on the front porch or take a stroll around the farm. During the cooler months you can snuggle up in front of the stone fireplace while reading a good book.

The Inn is located on Hedgebrook Farm, a working dairy farm. The farm has been in operation since 1906. Not only do we have over 30 jersey cows and calves living at the farm we are also home to ducks, turkeys, llamas, sheep, peacocks, donkeys, and a water buffalo. While visiting The Inn you can interact with the animals and see Miss Kitty milk the cows.

When you stay at The Herds Inn you are using the entire home which offers you complete privacy and all the comforts of home.
