    The animal feeding in the morning is a must.

    Nothing at all

    Wacky Stays is about the overall experience - not spacious comfort. Kevin 'upgraded' us from the cottage to the train carriage at no extra price (he said it was a $100 difference, but a review of the websites indicate $20). Having since read the reviews for the cottage, we can only surmise it's due to some of the matters previously mentioned. While we really appreciated the historic sentiment of the beautiful train carriage - it was very cosy for a family of four, and we were extremely lucky we are on the smaller side - my teenage son is not yet 5ft, and he only just fit in the double bunk. Don't get me wrong - this is the kind of place where you go for a night for the uniqueness, the farm animals, and the magnificent mountain views. My kids loved the animals. But I would only do one night. I'm also not sure how the cooling would go in summer - but with the heating we were warm in winter. (By the same token, if it was summer, we could have used the bbq, and sat on the deck).

    A little too snug for us.

    Staying in the Colonial Wagon was a unique and unforgettable experience. The wagon was really lovely and more spacious than I had expected. The room was warm and comfortable with electric blanket. Breakfast is ready to be served in the wagon with toaster anytime. There are DVD titles you can enjoy watching in the wagon. You get to wake up in the morning to a fantastic view with the mountains and the llamas. Feeding the animals was fun though that you have to be prepared to get dirty and muddy.
