It is pretty remarkable to discover a working 1900s farm close to downtown Moscow. With one turn off the street, we entered a charming, rustic, enclave of a 1900s farmhouse, barns and outbuildings. With attention to cozy and turn-of-the-century charm, the Sunshine Room at the DayStar Farm was comfortable, quiet and enriched our visit. We loved the farm! Steve was hospitable and happy to share tips of local haunts and places to explore. We enjoyed conversation with Steve. On our way out, we purchased a dozen eggs, using the "honesty system" and got a glimpse of the farm's original cold-room. This place is a rustic and historical treasure! We would definitely recommend a stay.

Very quainte and Homie. Took photos of the farm. Not a hotel feel at all. But if you like character, this is your place.

Steve was a great host. Checkin was very easy and relaxed. The home was quite and the bed was very comfortable. Steve had hot coffee ready in the morning and even offered bacon and eggs. Good location only 10 minutes from the university and a few blocks to get to a run in the country.

Very charming small farm just minutes from town. Vintage furniture and quilts add to the homestead feel. Steve is a very welcoming host.

Loved this sweet little urban farm with it's pen of many chickens, a beauty of a billy goat & a small flock of sheep- all in a pastorial setting almost in the heart of downtown Moscow. The restored vintage farmhouse has changed little from its glory days and is clean, cheerful, relaxed & comfortable. The bedroom, the Sunshine Room, is unadorned comfort- a comfy double bed surrounded in cheery yellow walls, a morning sun burst & clouds billowing off the ceiling. All which makes one smile before your feet hit the floor in the morning. You'll enjoyed Steve, your host, who's smiley, friendly, relaxed and fun to talk to about anything on or off the farm. This is the best place to get a great nights sleep and to wakeup to the bleating of lambs, chuckle of chickens and a great cup of coffee in Moscow! Lovely!

I am a Father of two grown children. I am an advocate for the Environment. I build; houses, fences, soil, community, relationships...I work toward sustainability. I am a carpenter, farmer, artist, mentor, friend. I raise children and animals and plants and expectations. I have a degree in Energy Conservation and Passive Solar Design, and many more years "in" University as I helped a now X spouse obtain a PhD and a tenure track position. I grew up wild in the Appalachian Mountains of WVa, spent many years traveling around the US on a motorcycle, married for 20 years, lived Great Britain, and now I've found this little farm in Idaho with good water, soil, climate, community. I've found my level and I'm livin it.

I'm told that my Farmhouse is cozy and inviting. In the Summer the windows are open to cool down the house for daytime. In the Winter I have a small woodstove to take off the chill. Some of my electricity is produced by Solar panels on the roof. Much of my food is produced here. This is a working farm so there are other people coming and going, planting and harvesting, visiting the animals, buying eggs...
The television only hooks up to the Internet and isn't used much. There are a couple farm dogs that may bark to greet you but neither live in the house. You're welcome to walk around the place but please don't pick any fruits or vegetables since these are sold to stores, resturants and individuals. We have a community outdoors sauna night nearly every Sunday evening that guests are invited to join. Except in freezing temperatures, there is an outdoor shower. Also, Porch swing to relax, Patio to hang out, Orchard with Fire Pit for the chilly evenings.
My wish is, that every time a person leaves here, our worlds are a better place.
