Our stay at Mary Rose’s Blue Studio Truck was so lovely. The truck was decked out beautifully and was so comfortable and spacious enough for 2 adults and a dog. The farm has many animals; chickens, sheep, horses, cows which is basically heaven. Mary Rose is very hospitable, friendly and very kind especially for allowing us to extend our check out time. We would definitely love to stay again!...
