Accommodations

We warmly welcome groups, families, couples and individuals for a memorable overnight getaway in the country. In light of the pandemic Fells Meadows is presently focusing on providing accommodations to couples, families and small groups on weekends and extended stays.

During the pandemic when a family or group books the farm house, the entire property will be private for them. When the pandemic lifts, a group that wants to have the entire property private will need to inquire first.

If you are an individual wanting time on your own in one of the cabins or farm house please inquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Please direct all inquiries to Contact Us.
