Farmhouse Rental Update
I mentioned in a previous post that we're nearing the finish line to offer our farmhouse for vacation rentals to our CSA membership. We have planned on welcoming our first guests starting the weekend of October 3rd. Price for CSA members is $250 a night, two night minimum, with a $100 cleaning fee which includes bed linens. I'm working on an activities book that guests can make reservations from, prior to their arrival. There's a local Swedish and Deep Tissue Massuese that will come out to the farm with her table. Ever the diligent farmer, I have voluntered to submit to a massage this weekend to see if I should include her in my activities book. I'll let you know! There's also several wine tours, cheese tasting, olive oil tasting, ballooning over the wine country of Temecula (which is just one exit north) and antiquing. I also thought I'd try to reach my old spinning teacher, Lila Sturges, to see if she'd come out by appointment and give an individual class to guests that wanted to learn how to spin our llama fiber. The farmhouse has a spinning wheel, so Lila would only have to bring her know-how. There's several casinos a short drive from the farm, so some of you might enjoy that. Also the Lawrence Welk Resort is just down the 15 from the farm, and I'll include showdates and times in my activity book, as well.
