Farmstay Vacation


Ever considered a Farmstay vacation for the family?  Well here's a glamorous
and fun way to stay on a farm with the entire family to enjoy all the fun things
at a farm without the grueling work.  Isn't the above tent fun?  At Kinnikinnick 
Farms located 85 miles northwest of Chicago, you can stay on a farm in a tent
like this for about $189 - $239.  It sleeps up to 6 depending on which tent you
choose.  I love the rustic inspiration of a tent.  I loved tents as a child and don't
think I ever really outgrew them.


Isn't it a gorgeous setting?  There's a lot of activities available as well.


Hot piping breakfast!


The tents have plumbing and kitchens.


Here's a closer look at one of the tents.  Isn't it fun?  
Kind of glamping.


Sleeping quarters.


And after all, the tent is on a working farm.  Isn't a red barn
quintessentially American?


An honest to goodness oven to bake bread in.


You can pick your own fresh produce.


Or just have fun in the pumpkin patches.


Plenty of farm animals to follow around.


Or play with.






Gorgeous forested areas to play in.




Complete with a campfire at night.


It's fun for the adults too.  If you're interested in this Farmstay, you
can find more information at featherdown.com.  Otherwise, if you're
like me - there was a lot of farm and rustic inspiration in the tents 
above.

That is my kind of camping...unfortunately I tend to gravitate toward the camping style where you pack up your tent every morning. When my kids were little, they so enjoyed spending their time with the animals in the Maine family farm....these days are gone. thanks for your post to bring back such sweet memories

Loved the charming bread oven. The reason that it has a roof over it is probably because its an earth oven. There's a great little book on building your own called "Build Your Own Earth Oven" by Kiko Denszer. Wonderful sculptural inspirational oven photos.

And, yes, building one is on my long term 'to do' list.

I didn't know you can place chandeliers in a tent within the woods and have it look like this, like a real home.
