"WOW !!! Where do I start with this place ?? Geoffrey and Christina welcomed me and my girlfriend into the ModFarm , from the second we stepped in it was like getting back together with old friends .They are two of the dos amazing people you'd ever be lucky enough to meet ! The ModFarm is just that , Modern living space on an amazing functioning farm . Fresh vegetables in the garden , wild flower covered prairies and enough wooded paths to get yourself lost in . The house is one giant work of art with huge windows that overlook the prairie and the surrounding woods . Words cannot describe how amazing the meals Geoffrey prepared were . This man needs his own show !!!! Picture waking up to the most amazing french toast on the planet , then smother it with his homemade cantalope jam , not sold ? smear some of his mint infused whip cream on top and tell me your tastebuds don't start dancing !! I brought along an aged ribeye roast that I wouldn't trust myself to cook , Geoffrey worked his magic over an open flame in his fire pit and the outcome was simply orgasmic ! He paired it with fresh carrots that he pulled from the ground that afternoon , giant shiitake caps stuffed with herbs from the garden and roasted leaks . The combinations and layers of flavor in this meal were indescribable . Literally one of the best meals I've ever had , the ModFarm deserves a Michelin Star . I don't know if Geoffrey brokered a deal with the gnomes in the woods of Tryon Farms or if he's a wizard . The attention to detail he brings to his approach in the kitchen amazing !! Does the amazing experience that is the ModFarm stop there ? Nope . He was nice enough to let us tag along to the farmers market and introduced us to some local vendors with local treats you can't find anywhere else . Need to relieve some stress ? Ask Christina for a yoga lesson and feel the stress melt away . Planning a day trip away from the farm ? Geoffrey made us the most amazing picnic basket to take with us , full of more amazing goodness from his kitchen ! Need a four legged friend to greet you at the door and shower you with love ? Ginger has it covered ! I cannot give enough praise to this place !!! It has everything !!!! The only thing I would change about this trip is that I booked 2 days instead of 4 . If you love food , great company , and an environment that will make you forget the stress of your 9-5 and leave you refreshed and rejuvenated don't miss out on staying at the ModFarm . Not only one of my favorite trips , but one of my favorite experiences I was lucky enough to have."
"When we arrived at the Mod Farm, we immediately recognized that we were entering a special, almost magical world. Rarely have we had the pleasure of vacationing in such a beautifully conceived space. There are so many lovely, thoughtful details to discover - - the furnishings are stylish and exceptionally comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked and functional, the modern rooms with large, panoramic windows are a pleasure letting in light and giving views of the lovely meadows and woods that surround the house. Everything at Tyron Farm indoors and outdoors was truly beautiful. We took many walks through this lovely, well cared for property. And enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch or listening to the really cool LP collection. In fact, in spite of the fact that the lake was so near by, we were very content to simply enjoy the house and surrounding trails. Geoffrey and Christina have created an amazingly restful, calm space. This was truly a restorative experience at Tryon Farm and we look forward to returning one day. I recommend it wholeheartedly!"
"An Instant Classic" "A Home The Whole Family Can Enjoy" "The Best Vacation Rental of Our Generation" "Two Thumbs WAY Up" THE HOSTS: Geoffrey and Kristina are pure MAGIC! Leading up to our arrival, Geoffrey was very communicative making our stay as smooth as humanly possible. At check-in, Geoffrey promptly greeted our group of four with a cozy outdoor fire, freshly-baked cookies (they we're STILL in the oven), local wine, eggs, and snacks.The hospitality extraordinaire gave us a quick (to "get out of our hair") but thorough tour of the space, and made himself available around the clock throughout our stay. Geoffrey responded to our inquires within minutes, was helpful, courteous and professional. THE SPACE: We did not want to leave. Every square inch of the space is stunning and was thoughtfully designed. The outdoor/indoor flow and the large, oversized windows made you FEEL like you were staying in the beautiful snow-covered woods. The kitchen is the most well-appointed of any home I've ever been to let alone a vacation rental. Ravioli roller? The Mod Farm Dwelling has one. Beautiful steak knives with wooden handles. Enough for your entire party. The furniture and furnishings are high-end and there's even a record player and an extensive collection of vinyls at your disposal. The beds are tempurpedic and the linens are extremely comfortable, and the bedrooms are on separate levels above and below each other for ultimate privacy. The bathrooms are spacious and have high-end products including sugar scrubs and body washes. If you're still reading this and haven't booked this home yet, YOU'RE CRAZY. Go, GO, GO!!!
