FJH B&B is a working miniature horse ranch and offers its visitors a truly unique B&B experience. We stayed in the Woodshed Room in the Bunkhouse. Warning --the bathroom is only separtated from the bedroom by a curtain in this room only. Also, horses do smell--something I am used to having lived near horses for 18 years. Our room was very clean, had a super comfortable queen size bed, nice fluffy robes were provided and a large deck with rocking chairs off the back overloooking the horse paddock and nearby tree covered hillside. A great place to start the day listening to bird calls with a fresh strong cup of Peets coffee. Watching Ned the baby mini-horse wake up, stretch his legs and frolick is possibly the cutest thing you will ever see. Also a great place to end the day, watching the sunset and the small, agile local bats dive for insects--very cool! Later at night the deck was the perfect place for star gazing too! Our hosts Robin and Mark were the nicest folks you will ever meet--very personable and accomodating. They are knowledgeable about the local history, restaurants, wineries and are a pleasure to talk with about any number of topics including world travel. Breakfast was huge and delicious! Robin's fresh baked goods were especially fine as well as the fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages, potatos, etc. Last but not least, the four Pharm dogs and cat were a treat! Mostly rescued animals they all had unique personalities and ,all but one, appreciated a friendly pat, scratch behind the ears or belly rub. FJH B&B is a little slice of heavan on earth!
