Out of any window you look, you will see penned fields of the gentle alpaca, frolicking or grazing. Jody will feed you a hefty
farmer's breakfast (most of the items will be from their farm or
"We drive up the long curved driveway in the lazy countryside.
It's quiet - alpacas don't make any noise - but they will
stop and check you over as Redford, the dog comes to meet you.
Jody, in her farm clothes, will greet you and show you to your
overnight hideaway which is a very spacious upstairs of a
remodeled old barn. (It is not yet handicap accessible.)
During the night, Redford will guard your door from the
porch landing. After a peaceful restful sleep, you wake
to quiet again - well, you may hear the clip clop of an Amish buggy
on the main road or the rooster (if he is out of the coop).
Depending on the time of day and year you could find Frank and the
boys on a piece of farm equipment tending to chores. Jody runs a store in the basement of the barn where she makes and sells beautiful items from the alpaca fiber. She has recently begun dying the fiber - quite a process - she might even
invite you to try your hand at it if you wish.
You will not be a stranger at Lana Bella nor will you feel crowded or
burdened. I myself, enjoy sitting on the upper deck in
an Adirondack chair, reading a book and enjoying the beauty of nature.
It's as good as it gets!!! "
