May 2006 | Maddie and Dylan (The Baker Clan)

Hello there MaryJane!
My family and I really enjoyed staying here. It was a truly wonderful experience. I’m sure you could tell from our loud dinners and “cocktail parties.” My brother and I loved everything about our tent including the fire stove, the lanterns, the coffee, and the location (closest to the outhouse!). Besides the unbelievable view, the smells, the gardens, and food, and the people, my favorite part had to be the light anywhere matches. Very cool! Thanks again for an out-of-this-world experience and I hope to see you again.

Thank you all so much for this wonderful experience! It has been a pure pleasure getting to know you all and experience your commitment!! We have accomplished a great deal and I am certain our “project” will be a huge success.

Dear MaryJane and friends and family,
What a spectacular day! What an amazing place! Thank you so much for sharing this incredible place with us today. I am so excited to be working with you and your inspiring team. The food was so delicious and the tent is so cozy and the ideas that flowed so freely and the energy—all added up to a terrific experience. Thank you again. I can’t wait to come back here again. And I can’t wait to tell the world About MaryJanesFarm!

What a lovely peaceful spot to reconnect with close friends, and with the natural world of our own Palouse home…we did have an adventure, with the burn mark on the floor under the woodstove—be careful, all, not to leave your fire unattended! But that’s life right—a little risk, a little comfort, a little danger, a little peace, whether rural or city, or somewhere in between… Thanks to our friend Carol for making our visit happen this spring, and thanks to MaryJane and all the farm staff for making the big vision happen!

MaryJane and gang,
This far surpassed my expectations. We all had a terrific stay! (and that is incredible considering the age difference). Even the teenagers had a great time. Thanks to you all and keep up the mission of love for each other.
Our love,

We had a wonderful time. Wish we could have stayed longer. This truly is a beautiful place.

What a fun, wonderful, and relaxing stay we have had on your farm! Your hospitality truly family style. We have enjoyed ourselves so much. The simplicity is contagious. Picking strawberries and lettuce was so delicious. The coziness of the wall tent was so fun—even with a wind storm whirling around us, and a night that was filled with the delightful sound of pouring rain. It was like music. Thank you for sharing. We look forward to returning. Best wishes to you all.

If I could recommend anything to you, it would be that your family come stay and rent the entire farm (15 people, which is what we did). It really gives you a chance to experience all of the beautiful unique sites and views around each site. We opted to have dinner every night in the plum pit and enjoyed every minute of it. Walk to the hillside tops, and the view gets even more panoramic every 20 feet. Thank you for having us.

MaryJanesFarm is a fun place to be. I like collecting eggs and the silliest part was when a chicken plopped an egg out while standing on the roost.

June 21 & 23, 2006 | Erica, Anna, & Stacy Pecha

I feel so fortunate to be returning after a whole year! I was able to bring one of my daughters out for a night, only to return a day later with another daughter for a special night. A few memorable quotes …
• “Mom I think we must be getting close to MaryJane’s the sky is a little bluer.” –Erica
• “Can you believe, that bird is singing just for us!” –Anna
• “The hardest thing about being here is having to leave.” –Anna
• “I saw the longest shooting star of my whole long life here.“ –Erica
My most precious memories are those of my daughters bursting into made-up songs (a true sign of happiness for a 6-year-old!)

MaryJanesFarm is the best place for me. I like watching shooting stars and listening to coyotes at night.

When my wife told me we were going to Butter Camp, I figured it couldn’t be that bad because I like butter. A farm that serves buttermilk biscuits, pancakes with Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup, and toast with butter can’t be all that bad. When I got here and found out the theme was farm life and not butter, I was a bit taken aback. After all, we had brought our own butter to be judged by the butter panel of experts and now what were we to do? So we went forward and bravely ate strawberries, walked around the farm, slept in the beds, and enjoyed the peace and quiet that comes from being in the countryside with no children. My wife loves this style of living, and she thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of your old-timey farm life. There will always be a feeling here that can’t be bottled up, and that will draw people back time and again. We had fun.
Best regards,
Steve & Geri Pearson, Fairfield, Washington

Friends—It has been and honor to briefly dwell in a spirit of goodness & sacred beauty. The nurturing & preservation of the natural world, something you do so well, celebrates the soul & elevates us all to focus on the higher good. I cannot think of a better cathedral to express my humility & awe as I bask in creation; the dawn brought the songbirds & a rooster … the setting sun reminded me to rejoice in the day & rest for one anew. The myriad of people brought together in inspiration & expression … GRANDEUR isn’t something typically so approachable & real … I believe this is your gift and WHAT a gift it is. I thank you!

A morning and the afternoon at the fair with smiles & laughter every time I turned around & priceless images & lots of pictures. Perfect weather & beautiful stars. I savored every moment & truly feel so special to have won this overnight stay here at MaryJanesFarm during the Farm Fair. It has been a very beautiful and serene experience for me & my friend Lei Ann Johnson. What a wonderful experience this has been. All of you here & your hospitality was much appreciated. Thank You!

I love your farm! We found many interesting things to do here! At the moment we are sitting on the bed finding new things to do with our toes! It’s a blast! You should try it sometime! Thanks!

I love the peaceful feeling I get whenever I am here. This is my second time. I was here last year. I am very grateful. I enjoy meeting new people.

From Mississippi to Idaho we came, and Idaho will stay in my heart for a long, long time. What a charming place—inspiring beyond words. Thank you for opening your heart and home to us.

After two nights of fresh air & quiet we are just finishing up our farm breakfast … fresh blueberries and strawberries, omelets with basil and red and green onion! We wandered around a lot—eating our way around the farm. Thank you sooooo much—for a few days of wonder & simple pleasures. Isabella wanted you to know that she LOVES berries, the swing and the animals—We love you all!!!
