Reviews: Our Guests Say it Best

Reviews: What do guests say when they #sleepwiththecows?

We love that our guests love coming to #sleepwiththecows as much as we love meeting & hosting them.  We’re thrilled that our guests consistently give us 5 stars.

Below are just a handful of reviews to highlight what you can expect when you come to #sleepwiththecows.


“Our family had such a great time staying at The New Day Dairy and Guest Barn! The kids loved seeing the cows and having 24 hour access to view them from the loft. It is truly a unique gem to stay at!

There were many little touches for the kids that made our stay so much fun. They had coloring books and cow hats, a toy barn, board games, and puzzles. There was no shortage of things to keep us entertained! We loved all the fun facts about the cows on display in the guest barn.

My 5 year old was amazed to learn a cow could make 100 glasses of milk a day! We can’t wait to come stay again!”

“We absolutely loved our time at the farm, and Lynn and Dan were perfect hosts. From communications to accommodations and amenities, we would highly recommend New Day Dairy Farm.

Our grandchildren were in heaven playing with the farm cats and kittens and watching the cows, and we adults truly enjoyed sitting in the garden around the fire table. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!”

~ Julie, Waverly, Iowa


This stay was great! You can expect a beautifully clean farm stay with lots of time to view the cows! I personally didn’t think I was going to enjoy this as much as I did, but I was pleasantly surprised!

It gave us so many new memories – especially my kids. I didn’t know if the preteen would think it was “cool”, but she LOVED being there😊. We had a group of 6 of us and it was so perfect to have the 3 bathrooms! Breakfast was great and we had everything we needed.

Lynn and Dan were amazing hosts. The loft was the perfect spot for a girls night. The space provided everything that we could possibly need including games, a full kitchen with all the basic tools to cook with, a comfortable bed, and best of all an amazing view.

The view in the loft allows you to see everything the cows are doing (it’s actually really entertaining) and the workers on the farm. We were even lucky enough to be there when a calf was born. We will definitely be back!

The GuestBarn is such a great experience. We were greeted with a personal note, and some fun dairy-themed items for our kids. The space is bright and cheerful. We really appreciated the complimentary continental breakfast. The pastries were definitely a hit!

The GuestBarn is awesome for families but could also be great for a couple or friends getting away for the weekend. Beautiful night skies around the fire pit and gorgeous flowers. Watching the cows was so fun. Our kids played up in the loft space so much, and my husband and I even found ourselves up there at 11pm mesmerized by the cows!

We can’t recommend the GuestBarn more! It’s a great get away – especially if you want to hunker down somewhere and just enjoy the space where you are.

New Day Dairy GuestBarn was AMAZING! We decided to take virtual school (and remote work) on the road. Nothing can beat sitting in the loft, watching the cows while getting everyone’s work done. The landscape is gorgeous. We were treated to outstanding sunrises and sunsets topped by autumn colors.

The gravel road biking was fantastic for the adults and we enjoyed our family bike ride on the rails-to-trails path (an easy ride from the farm to the trail) as well. Lynn’s tours of the dairy barn and calves were fabulous! We learned so much more than we ever imagined. Lynn is a consummate host.

You will love the lodging, but the surrounding farm and landscape are what make this stay the most unique experience you’ll ever have!

~ Jessica, Madison, Wisconsin


This was a wonderful Vacation Rental. A family farm with a labor of love and hospitality. The host was extremely kind and very quick to respond. The tours of the farm were awesome! The history was very interesting.

It was so cool to be able to see the inside of the barn and the goings-on from the comfort of our loft area. The living area was so clean and comfortable.

I would highly recommend the GuestBarn for anyone with kids, as there is so much to see and the hosts included books and toys that they can play with. We hope to be back sometime!

We had two of the most relaxing, enjoyable, nostalgic days we can remember during our stay at New Day Dairy GuestBarn. Communication with the owners/farmers was clear and friendly from the outset. The accommodations are just as nice in person as they appear in the photos.

Our hosts were both very friendly and very informative. We got many waves and smiles as we watched them do their work in the barn from the viewing room, and got to see a calf be born during our stay.

The continental breakfast items they provide are delicious and filling. Really can’t say enough good things about our stay, just hope it doesn’t get too busy so we have date options to choose from when we return, which we will.

~ Dean, Minneapolis, Minnesota


We value each of our guests.  We’re thankful they choose to spend their vacation time enriching their life and relaxing with our cows at New Day Dairy GuestBarn.  Check our availability and come experience it for yourself!
