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!

Steve is an amazing host! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Day Star farm. Steve really made us feel welcome. Steve was more than understanding about my late arrival time. He also made us coffee! Steve even let us play with the baby sheep and pick farm fresh eggs. Definitely would recommend for future travelers!

Tidy, informal, welcoming, clean, private, quiet: a refreshing country farmhouse atmosphere with generous kitchen and bathroom. The highlight is Steve: builder, farmer and wise. We dropped into unexpected, rich and thoughtful conversations. I strongly recommend this experience.

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. Clothing is optional but we will respect your privacy if you choose not to sauna. Except in freezing temperatures, there is an outdoor shower with a limited hot water supply. I only book 3 months in advance in case I do meet another 'love of my life' and we need the house to ourselves.
My wish is, that every time a person leaves here, our worlds are a better place.
