Barb and Ward, I just wanted to say thank you for making this holiday the best ever. You made sure all of our needs were met and made each of us feel special. By the time we left, you all were like family, without the fighting. :o) We will be talking about this Thanksgiving for a long time. I have attached some pictures for you. It has some really good pictures of the bonfire. I am looking forward to the next time Ryan and I will be able to come for a visit. Take care, Donna.

Barb and Ward, I just wanted to say thanks again for our stay this past weekend! We had an absolutely wonderful time – one of our best stays anywhere! We both really miss all of the animals – we loved them all and can’t wait to have our own someday! I’ll have to send you some pictures of Taylor and I with the donkeys… We would love the opportunity to visit with you again in the future! Thanks again and take care! - Nicole

Thanks a lot for a great 4 days. We both loved all the animals and will be back to visit again. We now both really want to get to the Valley to start our farm!! - Taylor

Words are not adequate to describe how blessed I feel to have crossed paths with you. Thank you for sharing your lives with me for the past week. I not only accomplished what I had hoped for but added 2 special people to my life. Will see you in December with my hubby. Until then - God Bless.

Dear Cornerstone Farm,
I loved staying with you. It was so much fun. I loved playing with your goats. I loved seeing my dad rescue "Fatso". I wanted your baby goats, they were too cute. I loved milking your goats and playing with your donkeys. - Raven -

We had a wonderful time, perfect (getaway). Thank you so much for the beautiful roses and delicious meals. Your home is beautiful & we loved being around the animals. Horseback riding was great, felt good to do it again after a long time. Thanks for everything, we'll be back with our little boy.

Clint & Allison, LaCrosse, VA--- Custom---- July 2006

We loved everything and everybody here in this wonderful home, for every soul! We are very happy we were here and got to know very precious people, Ward and Barbara. Be God's blessing always with you and your farm so that everything will go as we experienced. Whenever you will come to Germany ...

Thank you so much for your patience with us (especially me) with the milking and the horseback riding. I never had a more enjoyable, fulfilling or exhausting birthday. Food was great. -Shirley -

Wonderful experience! We enjoyed being "part of the family" for a few days. The "kids" are adorable. May God Bless. -John -

Shirley & John Gambrills, MD --- Farmer---- July 2006

Dear Barb and Ward - You have welcomed us in your home and treated us like family. Your home and land and animals are all so beautiful. Every single meal was outstanding (the best burgers ever, the best tuna ever)! : ) You treated our children with such loving care that they will miss you as much, if not more, then the wonderful experiences you have provided. I (Jen) will never forget your sweet red haired goat whom I now call "Rahab". You have put a longing for the country in this city-girl's heart!

My favorite part was the horseback riding on the nature trails ... who would have thought?! Jay's 3 favorite things were the meals, the horse ride, and the mountain biking. The kids really loved the bonfire, the baby animals, and YOU.

Thank you so much for a most memorable Father's Day weekend. God bless you.

Dear Barb and Ward - Thank you so very much for a most wonderful farm stay. Each of us have thoroughly enjoyed our experience!We truly appreciate your gracious hospitality and have loved being here "in nature" with your many friendly animals and being able to interact so closely with the animals has been a real highlight. Our time with Liese was really fun too! Thank you for going all out for our family. I truly believe that God has a way to bring us to the right people and God surely has by leading us to you and your farm. Thank you for refreshing and rejuvenating this 'city-worn' family!

We felt as comfortable as home, what a wonderful farm. Thank you for your kindness. God Bless.

Marv & Roberta, Southfield, MI--- Traveler---- May 2006

Thank you for a wonderful visit to your farmhouse this past weekend. What a treat to stay at such a beautiful place. The setting and the rooms were lovely. All of the animals were so entertaining to watch and added to the atmosphere of the farm. Breakfast was delicious and the goat's milk was a special treat. We all decided that it tasted better than cow's milk. Most of all, it was wonderful knowing we were in a Christian home. May God continue to bless you abundantly.

Kathy, Lee, Laura & Ann, Wade, Raleigh, NC--- Traveler---- May 2006

This was our family's dream come true. We will be back as long as you are in business. Thank you so very much for the kindness to the children especially. We would love to return the hospitality and wait on you. Please call or write if you plan to be in our area or if you just want a break. Truly!

Chris & Rosemary, Hunter, Jackson, and Rosa--- Farmer---- May 2006

Our third time here and it gets better every time! Your Hospitality makes the stay here so much more enjoying. The kids had a blast fishing in the pond, riding the ponies, and seeing and petting all the animals. We can't wait to come back next time.

Michael, Janice, Meghan, Missy, and Jason Jackson, NJ--- Farmer---- May 2006

Hello again Barb and Ward! It's so nice to be back. I can't think of a better way to spend our 22nd anniversary! What a relaxing time. We'll be back.

Allen & Cali Goochland, VA------------ Anniversary---- May 2006

Many thanks for everything, again! We had an amazing trip again, but especially with the baby goats and seeing Paige give birth to the new ones! So many miracles here! We love you guys and can't wait for the next time.

----- Farmer ---- April 2006

I had a super time at the farm! The meals were ecstatic, and I loved the doe barn. It was fun to bottle feed the 4 babies and have them crawl all over you and chew your hair and butt for your attention. It was also fun to pet the horses and the donkeys. The poultry barn was interesting too. I loved holding that little fuzzy duckling! Cricket is very sweet! She slept with Kelly and me last night. Corky and Cana are also great. We had a super time. Thank you also for adding in the pony rides! We all learned lots about animals! - Erin -

Martha & Dan, Kelly, Erin, Hannah ----- Farmer ---- April 2006

We had the perfect vacation. Plenty of rest and relaxation, along with the balanced chores. Norma was such a pleasure. I hope all your guests are that great. We wanted to let you know how great we think the both of you are. I can't put in words just how much of a great time Summer had. Thank you. We can't wait to see you soon.

Courtney & Heather, Summer, Jaxson --- Farmer---- April 2006

Yet another wonderful stay at our favorite B&B & farm. This time the weather held and we crammed so many activities in 2 days. I can hardly believe it! Everyone had so much fun! & All 7 of us got got to do everything we wanted to. Thank yo so much for working so hard to make this happen. As always the food was plentiful and delicious. We will all remember the goat packing picnic! It was fantastic!


Nichola, Jonathan and Anna, Amy, Raleigh, NC --- Easter Custom---- April 2006

This was a most amazing and relaxing experience. Thank you so much for your delightful hospitality. Kind regards.

Heather & David, Luke -- Derbyshire, England--- Easter Custom---- April 2006

Thank you for a lovely extended weekend stay. The farm was lots of fun for the children. - especially the horseback riding, fishing, and visiting the animals. But mostly, it was just a wonderful time to slow down and escape the cares and busyness of city life. Thank you again and good luck in the years ahead. Blessings always.

Bonnie & David, KC, Holly --Falls Church, VA----- Farmer---- April 2006

Thank you for making our weekend so amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities and partaking in some of the farm chores. You both are such a wonderful and relaxing couple, which really added to the atmosphere. We'll probably see you guys again in the future.

Linh & Adam Blacksburg, VA----- Winter Special ---- March 2006

What a wonderful weekend! We couldn't have asked for a better mini-vacation. The weather was perfect, the food more then ample and delicious, and our hosts so kind and generous. Thank you both for your willingness to answer our questions and inviting us spirit of your home! We look forward to returning!

Mickey & Laura, Alexandria, VA----- Farmhand ---- March 2006

Dear Barb and Ward,
Thank you for a wonderful stay and for taking such good care of us. We all had a fantastic time - Anna and Amy's American granddad said he was a little jealous of the fish she caught! - He wants to come with us to visit you sometime this summer so he can catch one for himself!

We are all looking forward to our visit at Easter.

Nichola, Jonathan and Anna, Amy, Raleigh, NC --- Farmer---- March 2006

Just wanted to say hello and let you know the impact your farm had on our lives. The kids talk daily about cornerstone farm and many times they are playing cornerstone farm. Kyra has devised a milking station in the front yard that is hilarious. They each still pretend to take care of the goats.

Actually, God’s faithfulness this whole past year has been nothing short of miraculous and your farm was just one piece of the puzzle for us. I hope you don’t ever doubt the use of your place for God’s glory because it truly was a safe haven for us where our family could get away and have a bonding experience. It was such a blessing.

We think of you often and hope it has been a profitable season for the farm as well as enjoyable.

Joy and Dirk, Kaden, Kyra, Jacksonville, FL --- Custom Package---- March 2006

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for our 30th wedding anniversary. He couldn't of picked a more pleasant place! We have enjoyed the stay! Barb, thank you for your hospitality and wonderful meals. Your house and farm are both beautiful. We will be back!!

Rob and Hazel Hampton, VA--- Anniversary ---- March 2006

Felt better then home! Love you guys, hate to say good-bye!

Cindy and Jason, Louisburg, NC --- Valentine's Special ---- February 2006

Great comfort, beautiful surroundings, fantastic meals, pleasant company, wonderful animals especially Cricket. We enjoyed every minute. We definitely come again, maybe with the children.

Cindy and Jason, Louisburg, NC --- Valentine's Special ---- February 2006

Thank you so very much for making our 15th anniversary such a special one. Especially loved watching you feed the animals. I appreciate your willingness to answer all our questions and for the lovely dinner conversation. So sorry Ward had to work so much but we look forward to a return visit with our kids. May God bless and keep you both safe in the hedge of protection.

Tracy and Caryn, Roanoke, VA--- Valentine's Special ---- February 2006

We spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the farm., Anna will forever remember petting the horses and donkeys. After a delicious meal the girls are fast asleep and I am beginning to feel the stress melt away. This is my personal paradise! Breakfast was superb! Thank you for such a wonderful retreat ~ I am leaving feeling pampered and we can't wait to return in March : )

Nichole and Jonathan & Amy and Anna, Raleigh, NC---- Traveler Plus ---- January 2006

We loved every minute of our stay. You made us feel like family from the very second we arrived. Vinay loved you guys so much that he is coming back with his allergies. You've taught us so much about farming. Thank you for everything. See you in May.
