The Farm: Animals

The Cove at Fairview has rental houses on a farm-like setting. My Roundette, Garden Cabin, Our House, & My Place are all a short walk to the barn – throw corn to our free range chickens or feed carrots to our three horses.

We give guests a tour of the barn upon arrival and are happy to answer any questions about the animals.

Miniature Donkeys

PetuniaPetunia and Buttercup are our new Miniature Donkeys. They like to eat treats, get petted, and run & play. They are each a year old. They are very sweet and happy animals. We are training them to stand still and to walk with a lead. These playful and affectionate animals are a joy to be around!
