a great way to ring in the New Year!We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The girls
especially loved petting the miniature horses. We felt very much at home. David
and I both agree that this was definitely a well needed relaxing weekend and we
were thankful to have found CornerStone Farm for our stay.

What a great time - thanks so much for the anniversary
basket, but most of all your warm hospitality and good food, extended above and
beyond in Jesus' name. May God bless you in your stewardship of His gifts and
enlarge your ministry - you are already doing wonders in His name - giving people
a glimpse of what it was like before the fall and what it will be like again when
we are fully reconciled and in His full, healed world. Blessings! keep on!

Awesome! Hospitality, warmth,
food & more food, delicious. Love to be back with nature. Rest, relaxing,
smells (of all types) were very welcomed. The best vacation we had for some time.
God does send us to meet some great people along our journey in life. You two
& Ted were the best. In the deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks, we
had a wonderful time. God's peace & blessing abound

This has been a wonderful experience
for city dwellers like us. We particularly enjoyed the little tour around the
farm and meeting all the animals. Euan was especially thrilled to see the animals
up close and to be able to pat them. Thank you Ward and Barb for your warm hospitality,
great food and a great stay. God bless both of you.
Jean and Family, Singapore
Thank you so much for making
my stay so wonderful. I felt more like family than a guest. I'm so sorry my husband
was called away and couldn't make it. Just means we'll have to schedule another
trip! Hooray! Barb, thanks so much for letting me spend time with the goats. Please
ignore the hoof sticking out of my suitcase! Ward, thanks for the lovely time
fishing. Next time I'll leave you at the house and maybe I'll catch something!!
Thanks again to you both.

and his 3 sons, Florida -----
Thank you so much for your generous
hospitality! We loved staying at your farm! It provided the perfect "escape"
for us after a very busy couple months! The room was comfortable and the meals
were delicious! Meeting all your animals was a special treat for animal lovers
like us! Thank you so much, Ward, for the nature walks and getting us started
with our bird and butterfly watching! We hope to continue it when we get back
home! Your sensitivity, Barb and Ward, to us and graciousness are so appreciated!!
and Alayne, Arlington, VA -----
Barb and Ward, thank you for a
very memorable honeymoon. Your hospitality will always be appreciated. The meals
were fantastic. The horseback riding was great. We hope to see you again. Good
luck with Charlie, and don't let him get STUPID with you. God Bless you all.

Thank you so very
much for everything you did for us this weekend. It has been our most enjoyably
relaxed weekends we have had in ages. Barb, you went above and beyond to meet
our needs - thanks!!! Ward, you gave us a new wonder to think about with fowl
and everything you do with that. Aaron and I had the best time getting back to
our roots that we miss so much. Many thanks to you both! What a weekend to never
Aaron and Karmen, Chesapeake, VA -----
We are so happy we found your web site It surely caught our
attention. You couldn't be more thoughtful and gracious hosts to us and Lincoln.
Barb, the surprise of the birthday gifts for Sandy was so wonderful, she was truly
touched. We enjoyed our conversations, excellent meals, and an overall great time.
Hopefully we will be back someday. Best of Luck.
Clint and Sandy and of course

Our 1st day on the farm was excellent.
We all enjoyed the tour and the wonderful dinner. The 2nd day very educational
and great fun doing chores, playing with all the animals, horseback riding and
pony rides and the bonfire were excellent. Barb and Ward thanks for being excellent
hosts. We all love your farm and hope to come back again. Thanks again for a wonderful
Jim & Sue, Kurtis, Michael, Richmond, VA ---
We all have had a wonderful time. This place is awesome. Thank
you Barb and Ward for being such great hosts and teachers this week! Anthony and
Carolyn have enjoyed being farmhands and have learned so many new things! This
has been a vacation where none of us minded working - we even looked forward to
it! We look forward to our next visit. May God continue to bless you!
& Kevin, Anthony, Carolyn, Cecelia, Woodbridge, VA
Our visit to the farm has been a very relaxing experience.
My husband brought me here as a surprise anniversary getaway. We enjoyed exploring
the farm and visiting the animals. It was so great to find a farm getaway only
about an hour from home. Wonderful food, thanks for everything. We hope to return
in the Fall.
Dan & Yasha, Littleton, NC -----
I'm glad we found you on the Internet.
This is a great farm and has allowed us a great family vacation. We enjoyed all
the farm chores. Cid will never forget "the big one" he caught in the
pond. [A 2 FOOT BASS BY A 5 YEAR OLD]. The farm is a beautiful
place and we wish you all the best with your Bed & Breakfast.
Irene, Deena, Claudia, Cid, Augusta, GA
We wanted the girls to have a memorable time and they did.
You have a beautiful place and just the right size to have us feel like we came
to visit family. Having the distinction of being the largest family you've had
so far was fun for us and work for you. Your attention to the kids was greatly
appreciated. We all had a great time, sorry to leave.
Alex, Destiny, Alana, Blessing, Coty, Forest, VA
What a great family vacation! We loved all the chores, activities,
meals, etc. We felt like part of the Halligan family! We can't say enough good
things. Thank you!
Scott & Eileen, Jack, Jon, Manassas, VA -----
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our "farm stay". We
have all learned a lot about "country living" that was a new experience
for us "city folk". This is probably the most relaxing vacation we have
ever had. Ward and Barb, thank you so much for welcoming us to your wonderful
home and treating us like family. We all hope to return again in the future. PS
We love riding the horse.
Manny, Cathy, Natalie, Patrick, and Annabel, West
Palm Beach, Fla
We had a great time. This was our first B&B experience
and it set a high standard. Ward and Barb make your stay feel like you were visiting
family instead of an unsocial hotel stay. The house pets were "lap pets"and
all the "kid" goats, 29 of them, wanted all your attention. The horses
really made my wife happy. For those who fish, we caught the little ones, but
saw several 2 - 3 foot bass. We left them for you to try to catch.
& Jenny, Powhatan, VA -----
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! You have a lot to offer here
at CornerStone! The animals, the scenery, and the experience are top notch. Thanks
for the great hospitality and a farm - hands on - experience we will never forget.
Best of luck to both of you. And God bless you as you live your dream. We are
more motivated then ever to make that move! Take care.

Good Morning Ward and Barb. We want to thank you for a wonderful
stay at CornerStone Farm. Our tour at Cardinal was very interesting and informative.
I think that David & Linda are now ready to make a decision on a builder for their
new home. After a stop for lunch and a shopping stop at Costco in Greensboro we
had an easy drive home. We recommended your B&B to the people at Cardinal in the
event they have inquiries about a place to stay. You might want to drop off a
few brochures at their office. May God be with you as you pursue this career change.
Don & Hazel, North Carolina -----
It was a great trip. We
were treated like family from the moment our feet hit the ground there at CornerStone
Farm. You truly have a piece of heaven carved out there. Philip and I both enjoyed
different things about the farm. I was crazy about the animals, and wish I could
have stayed longer. Those goats are great little creatures!!! Mr. Kitty (ground
hog) is as cute as cute can get. I researched a little to save you some time.
Try this web site www.hoghaven.com/gfaq.htm It has lots of info. Hope Kitty makes
CornerStone his home for life too. We will be keeping in touch and hope to be
back soon. Take care. We loved it there
Kay and Philip, Richmond, VA -----
For our trip from middle TN to Delaware,
we needed a stopover point with horse-boarding facilities. CornerStone provided
a convenient layover in quiet surroundings. Barb and Ward moved their horses around
to accommodate our colt. We appreciate their hospitality and willingness to board
a young stallion. Their human accommodations and meals were equally impressive.
and Don, Manchester, TN -----
and Rider ----
Thank you so much barb! We had
a wonderful time! You taught us a lot about the goats and we look forward to learning
more from you. We had a blast doing the chores - I just hope the girls still enjoy
it when we get our goats. We look forward to seeing you again in a few weeks.
We also look forward to meeting Ward. We treasure our new friendship. Thank You!
Aspen and Misti, Goochland, VA -----
A lovely stay - the grandchildren loved the farm animals. The
rooms are marvelously comfortable and so restfully decorated. We'll spread the
word! The best for me (Mary) was to meet and fellowship with a new sister in Christ
- an unexpected "God"incidence!
Jim and Mary, Middleton, MA -----
We had an awesome time! The children do not want to leave.
Horseback riding, hiking, and the meals were excellent. The most favorite task
was milking the does (in addition to cuddling the kids). Hope PJ kids soon! Oh
yeah, mom and dad had a relaxing time.
Andrew and Christine, Midlothian,
VA ----- Farmer
Only God could have arranged our stay here. After a couple
of hours of going in circles, we found you in a booklet given to us by another
motel. We were entirely blessed. Celebrating our 7th anniversary (seven is symbolically
"completion" in the bible) in such privacy and hospitality and with
a delicious breakfast could only have been improved on if we had more time!
bless you all and your efforts! Hope to see you soon! Thank you for taking us
in on such short notice. It was a blessing.
Kris and Lisa, Chesapeake,
VA ----- Traveler
We had a wonderful time. It's nice to find a bed and breakfast
that not only allows children, but welcomes them. Our son had so much fun here.
Thank you so much for the hospitality. We wish you lots of success and happiness.
and Jamal, Raleigh, NC -----
We just want to thank you for such a wonderful time we had
here. Our 9th anniversary will most certainly be remembered. We thank you for
your hospitality and generosity as you served us this weekend. May God bless you
as you have blessed us.
Todd and Dani, Rhoadesville, VA -----
CJ and I had a great time. Wish we were able to stay longer
and enjoy more activity and the farm, but the hospitality was exceptional. Best
wishes in the future.
Erika and CJ, Richmond/Lexington,VA -----
You both are certainly blessed with a gift which make strangers
feel like family. Meal times were relaxing and fun, and the food was wonderful.
This was the first B&B experience and I will have memories for years to share.
I appreciate your blessing the food and pray that God will bless your home and
work, and know that many guests will be blessed as I was. Thanks again for everything!

A truly wonderful experience.
Hospitality and food were tops! I wish I had been able to be 'Out on the Farm'
to see all the animals, but the week has been memorable all the same.
Pennington, VA -----
(call for details)----
This is by far our finest
B&B experience. The generosity and wisdom of our wonderful innkeepers, the
truly idyllic setting, and the fascinating array of well loved animals all work
together to make this a place we want to visit again and again. It is truly a
haven for the traveler.
Esther Lee and Douglas, Holmdel, NJ -----
My wife and I wanted to get away
for our 3rd anniversary; my wife found CornerStone Farm on-line and we came to
agreement this is where we were going. The night we arrived, it was the best hospitality
you could get. From dinner and all the rest of the meals, they were excellent,
and you never leave hungry. The activities from feeding the goats animal crackers
or milking the goats, my wife thought was the best ever, to going horse back riding
through trails and scenes that words couldn't describe. CornerStone Farm, if you
enjoy nature, animals, and food; there's no place anywhere else in Virginia.Richard
