Casa de la Pradera.... (house in the meadow)
is a farm stay bed and breakfast on a working organic farm.
It overlooks a meadow, and is a short walk over the hill from
Sierra foothills village of Fiddletown and its historic buildings, and
is only three miles from the Shenandoah Valley and its wineries.
"The Casa" is not just a Bed and Breakfast, but also a small
working CSA (community supported agriculture) farm that
produces vegetables, herbs, apples, olives and eggs for local
farmers markets. This is an authentic farm stay. While the
farmhouse is a newer building constructed fifteen years ago, the
Kaiser family, your host, has been on the land for over 50 years.
Set in the peace and quiet of the country, you will hear nothing but
frogs at night, and birds awakening you in the morning. It offers a
wonderful escape from city life, a place to unwind and ground
oneself in authentic country life-- and even learn a bit about
organic gardening before you head out to a local winery- or
continue on to the High Sierra.
A very family friendly place to stay--kids especially love to feed the chickens and help collect eggs, and help pick vegetables in the gardens; also perfect for couples looking for a quiet, romantic retreat, and individuals seeking a pleasant, private but not too isolated country visit. Come enjoy the country at Casa de la Pradera!
