My family (wife, son, daughter in-law and two-year-old granddaughter) and I visited Cottonwood Farm for the first time recently. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and had a terrific time. Our granddaughter loved all the wooden vehicles she could climb on, the animals, and the big slide (four trips up the hill!). The grown-ups loved the dinosaur barn and all the quaint play houses. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the grounds neat and clean, and the food delicious. We definitely plan to return, and will recommend your place to our friends.
