Fresh sunflowers. Fresh eggs. Fresh air.

Located on almost 5 acres of farmland, Sunny Side Up Farm has lots for you to enjoy! Our farmstay has lots of room for you to write, whether you prefer to kick back on the couch, or sit at the desk, or bring your laptop to the screened-in porch. Enjoy a walk around the property and pet the horses (Summer and Penny), have some fresh eggs from our hens (“The Mildreds”), or lay out in the hammock and soak up the sun. Want to get out for a while? The High Bridge Trail State Park bike trail is a hop skip and a jump away, or you can toodle into downtown Farmville for a stroll if you have wheels. We can’t promise we’ll be around much, but if you’re trying to access your creativity, that’s probably for the best!

Pay for a Stay!

While we run the Unruly Retreat for free, you can book a traditional retreat via Airbnb. We’d love to see you! Paid stays help keep the free aspect of the Unruly Retreat free.
