À propos de ce logement
Come stay on the farm!
North Star Horse Farm offers riding lessons and a growing equine therapy program.
Stay in one of two available rooms overlooking our working barn - or come stay in both!
North Star Horse Farm is a working farm. We offer riding lessons, summer camps, a growing equine therapy program, and ongoing horse boarding and breeding. Please do not explore the Farm without supervision; we would be happy to give you a tour when we have a moment!
In fact, we have guest stalls as well as guest rooms, so if you're traveling with a horse or three and want to stay close to them, you've found the perfect place to stay! (Additional charges will apply if your horse(s) also need to stay over.)
The two rooms we have for rent overlook some of the paddocks where we turn horses out daily. Each has ample closet space, a comfortable full size bed, drawer space, and a comfortable chair to relax in.
Linens are provided. For stays of a week or longer, we're happy to switch out your sheets and towels. You're also welcome to take advantage of our washer & dryer.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests will have use of their room(s), the upstairs full bathroom, the kitchen (BYO food), the breakfast nook, and the front porch and back deck. Please check before using the living room and dining room, since we have a dog who loves going in there and chewing up whatever he can reach!
The basement is rented by another tenant, and the owner stays in the master bedroom upstairs. We appreciate your respect of those personal spaces.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
It varies. No meals are provided, but you're welcome to use the kitchen (as long as you leave it as clean as you found it!). We have busy schedules to keep to, so the timing may or may not work out for us to spend much time with you while you're here.
It's rural out here for sure! There are farms and fields as far as the eye can see, but downtown Aurora is just 10 minutes away by car. Grocery stores and a small mall are just a couple of miles away.
There's plenty of free parking on the farm, but little public transportation nearby. The La Fox Metra stop on the UP-West line is under 10 minutes away by car -- and the Aurora stop on the BNSF Metra is about 15 minutes away by car. Taxis are available at both train stations.
Riding lessons can usually be arranged with 24 hours notice. Lessons cost $40/hr per person, or $30/half hr.
Please be courteous. If you'd like to bring a pet with you, please say so as soon as you get in touch so we can make sure they'll be ok (there's one very laid-back Weimaraner who lives here too).
Smoking is fine outside, as long as you're at least 25 feet from a building.
If you have any questions, just ask!
