Guest Comments

Hello Barb and Ward, Thank you for the hospitality and great food you cooked up. Cierra, our granddaughter, and her friend Haley loved the unique experience of staying in your home as a farm bed and breakfast. There isn’t much one can do to compete with all the electronic gadgets that fill their lives but this did it. As for Becky, well what can I say. I think it was pretty obvious she would have gladly stayed in the barn. She missed her calling somewhere along the way. Dorval and I again thank you for being our host. If we get a chance to come again we will look you up.

Susan Pennington Price and Dorval & family Traveler Plus December 2007

this lovely place is more then a B&B. Ward and Bar made us feeling of a country home we wanted to stay once in a lifetime. Home cooked foods, animals, open space, and horseback riding etc. We thanked my kids to find CornerStone for a weekend of our 21st anniversary and Ward and Bard for unforgetable hospitality.

Son-ku and Young- ______---------------------------__ Anniversary-October 2007

Ward and Barb -
We want to thank you so much for your "gifted" hospitality! There are no coincidences when He puts other believers together. We thank you for sharing with us & others what God has blessed you with!

Sandi & Al Lane _______________Thanksgiving Package November 2007

Hi Barb and Ward, THANKYOU, I have to tell you that when we got home we missed waking up in the morning to the cows moo-ing and the chickens,etc It was a real blessing for us to get to relax and enjoy your land, home and company. We just had the best time and Al and I talk about it so much. Thank you again and we hope to come back again some time.

Kris & Al Engling _______________ Thanksgiving Package November 2007

Dear Ward & Barb,
1st let me tell you what a wonderful time we all had this past weekend on your farm! Thanks for opening up your home to us & teaching us so much. We are all excited about our future in goating & the girls were so excited when we shared our plans to get the does/kids of the goats they loved so much.

Christian &Tom, Cobbs Creek, VA, _____________ Mentorship October 2007

Hello dear friends in Christ, Our stay with you was a blessing to us at a time when we needed a peaceful retreat from the many busynesses with which we need to deal right now. We had such a beautiful stay with you and look forward to a return visit in God's time. Love in Christ,

Mary and Jim, Middleton, MA, _______________----Traveler Plus October 2007

Barb, Can't thank you enough for this wonderful stay. The animals speak for themselves(!), but it was also the hospitality and kindness that you both showed in sharing your home and some of your daily lives with us that was the true gift.

Nancy and Howard, Bethesda, MD, _______________Traveler Plus October 2007

In life the Lord grants blessings and our stay here was truly a blessing to meet and share in your wonderful home. Karen and I thank you both very much. Everything was great from dinners to fishing in your pond and sitting with the goats. Our prayer is that God will continue to bless you both Barb and Ward in all that He has put in your care. Thank you for the blessings.

Todd and Karen, Westminster, MD- _______________ Traveler Plus-October 2007

I have had a lovely stay at CornerStone Farm. It's been relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable! The farm and country out here is beautiful. I will be sure to recommend ya'lls B&B to everyone. Thanks Ward and Barb!

Charlotte Mae - ______---------------------------__ Traveler Plus-October 2007

What a sense of peace and beauty here! Fellowship with fellow Christians is is a treat! "Family dinners" was absolutely super. We hate to leave.

James and Mary- __---------------------------------______ Traveler-October 2007

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place. What a wonderful- peaceful - restful time - food was awesome. Christ is very evident in the lives of each of you - Psalm 127:1. Thank you for a wonderful birthday for Curtis.

Barbara and Curtis, Fuquay-Varina, NC- ________ Traveler Plus-October 2007

What a wonderful place for the parents during Hampton-Sydney parents weekend! We enjoyed relaxing in your beautiful home. Thank you for your warm hospitality, delicious breakfast and fellowship. We'll be back - hopefully for graduation ... or before!

Nancy and Kevin, Pam and Randy, Roanoke, VA- Traveler-September 2007

Ward and Barb, this time of rest has been so peaceful and truly an answered prayer. I truly enjoyed the beautiful scenic views and seeing all your animals close up and for the first time in real life. You both are so accommodating and have made our vacation perfect. I needed the rest and the both of you were so kind to allow me the opportunity to rest without feeling guilty or pressured into doing anything. I enjoyed the fellowship with your friend Sue as well. Thank you for opening your home to me and allowing me to bring my Louie (dog).

Anna, Virginia Beach, VA- _______________Custom Special -September 2007

What a blessing! We Love you guys
Ward and Barb, Thank you! We really enjoyed our conversations with you and your friends. It was really uplifting to be in your home. We enjoyed the delicious meals, the scenery, the animals - a perfect weekend getaway! We'll be back & we will tell our friends & family about your B&B also. Get better Barb - we're praying for you!

Joshua and Shannon, Amelia, VA- _______________Custom Special -September 2007

For Ruth, it was the comfort of your home (a home away from home!) and the delightful conversation with the both of you. For Ross, it was milking the goat, a little fishing, and regrets only not having the time for a walk and a horseback ride. For Kyle, it was loving your animals and your kindness to allow his help, and for Cindy - the great food that I didn't have to prepare, the beautiful view of the pond in the morning and the joy of having chosen on accommodation that pleased us all so much and gave us a special experience to share. We would love to return if the opportunity presents itself, and we truly felt God's love in sharing your home for a bit!

Cindy and Family, Media, PA- _______________ Traveler Plus -August 2007

We wish to thank you for the wonderful visit we had at Cornerstone. Even though it was so short, it was one of the highlights of our extended trip to PA and VA. WE appreciated the valuable information on goats and being able to observe and get in with the goats and Kita. You have a lovely home.

Jan and Wallace, Lake City FL, _______________Traveler Plus 2007

Ward and Barb, Just wanted to tell you both what a wonderful, peaceful, & relaxing honeymoon we had at your farm. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. You are great hosts and your animals are excellent neighbors.

Darren and April, Lester, W VA, _________------------------------------______Honeymoon 2007

Dear Barb and Ward, Just a note to say hello and to tell you once again how fantastic our stay at CornerStone Farm was. Becky and I had a much needed opportunity to relax and enjoy a way of life far removed from what we have known for many months. Your hospitality was warm and inviting as your home and we hope to make a return visit in the Fall. Fondly,

Laura, Goode VA, ___________---------------------------____ Farmer 2007

Hi Barb and Ward, Well, this is the first moment I have had to get back to you. We had a wonderful time farming with all your babies. We have not stopped talking about all we did in such short a time and learned so much. I appreciate all the hands on opportunities that we all had. Also, the one on one for most of the day allowed me to focus on each task and lesson.

Thank you for the step by step approach. Brittany had a great time too and felt so at home that she could go out in the goat pen and play with the kids all by herself. She also liked being around the dogs. What the weekend at your home did for me is raise my confidence level. I came home believing I could handle goats, sheep and maybe some other livestock. They are the right temperament and personality. Now I need to transfer that to maintaining alpaca as well. Thus, more research is in order. Thank you again for offering this type of program for aspiring farmers and ranchers.

Lots of smiles, Darlene, Brittany and family__------------____ Mentorship 2007

Barb and Ward, Everything was just wonderful on our trip. I wanted to thank you again for everything. We have since made another round of 30 minute mozzarella, and have started thinking about our started for another load of bread (we just finished the first two loafs!). We will certainly be coming back at some point in the future. Best of luck to you and the kids (is everyone out and safe yet?).

Thanks again, Miles and Holly__--------------___ Cheese and Bread Making 2007

Hi Ward and Barbara! I can't thank you enough for the wonderful time and hospitality shown to the children and myself this weekend. It was great to see everyone again and a time to make some more sweet memories as well as recall some from the past. The two of you were 'perpetual motion machines' in the running of the farm and hosting our visit. We can't thank you enough!
Mike and the kids

Mike, Kaitlin, Chris and Lauren, New Bern, NC- Custom Special -August 2007

Thank you so much for everything during our stay. Ashley loved the trail ride and all the animals - particularly the baby goats. I know she won't stop talking about this vacation for months and months. I don't know what I'll be able to do next year to improve on this vacation. Thank you, thank you!

Natalie and Ashley, The Colony, TX__-----------------____- Farmer -July 2007

Dear Ward and Barb, Becky and I stumbled upon a little piece of paradise when we found CornerStone Farm and it was practically in our own back yard. It was exactly the experience we were looking for with the added bonus of finding two new friends. Fondly, the "forgettables"

James, Karen & Audrey, Los Angelas, CA -__---------____ Farmer -July 2007

Thank you for your great hospitality and patience with teaching Aly about a farm. Yours is beautiful, peaceful and was such fun! Since we can't enjoy farmlife in Oregon where we live - we so enjoyed you sharing yours with us. This will be a great grand daughter-grandma memory for Aly. May God continue to bless & keep you safe.

What a wonderful place to bring your child - and adults too - there's such a lot to learn! This went beyond our expectations of a farm stay - it was wonderful! Thank you for your generous meals, willingness to explain, and patience with our 2 1/2 year old "kid". We'd love to come back!

Our 2nd trip here. Fantastic time with the goats!The food and hospitality are what keep us returning. We can't wait until the next time. The children and I will keep trying to talk mom into a baby goat!

William, Shawna, Karley & Tanner, Waldorf, MD, - Farmhand -- April 2007

What a wonderful couple of days we spent enjoying nature at its finest and reconnecting as a busy family. Chloe and Jake thoroughly enjoyed their horseback riding experience with dad. Fishing and biking kept them well entertained, but the highlight was most definitely the twice daily chores and bonding with the goats, which they couldn't get enough of. Thank you Ward and Barb for not only sharing your home with us, but your family too. Mom Jane and niece Gavin were great company! A lovely time was had, we would love to visit again in the near future. Many thanks to you.

Tim, Sarah, Chloe & Jake, California, MD, -- Custom Special ---- April 2007

Thank you for the wonderful time we had at our first B&B experience! We all just loved all the animals and Isabel had a ball riding Dusty. The meals were excellent! You made us feel so welcome & like part of the family. We will be coming back soon after the baby is born to go horseback riding. You have such a beautiful and peaceful place! : )
