About Ritchie Tarn

Just a dad raising 2 teenage boys on the farm. We are a 4th generation farm with family values. We raise wheat, corn, milo, soybeans & alfalfa and in our spare time enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. Hunting, lake activities and sports fills up most of our time away from our farm duties. This property is located just a 1/4 mile from our farm so we are close to be able to care for our guests in anything that arises.

Beautiful, peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, peaceful property provides an excellent escape. The property has many great amenities, is easy to access, and is close enough to city amenities, if needed. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this country property to family and friends!

Absolutely perfect. We loved the kitchen. Perfect for big group meals. The grill was easy to use too. And that porch. Many good memories were found there. Lovely stargazing too. Very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. Thank you!

Five Star!! Top Notch! Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many VRBO homes across the country from Vegas to Key West to San Diego and this ranks in the top!! Nothing is left to chance. Beds are comfy, towels are plush, it is homey and comfortable, clean and contemporary! He provides, coffee, sugar, creamer, salt and pepper, a beer fridge and pool table in the garage, washer and dryer, detergent and softener, bath soap and shampoo. The view is fantastic and the sunsets are unmatched. Salina and Abilene are close but Solomon is closer and has a small well stocked grocery and a liquor store (but no gas). It is private, and the house was large and roomy for all the six adults and three dogs. It is great he allows dogs as well. We all agreed we wished it was winter so we could enjoy the two wood burning fireplaces. The kitchen was so big we could all just hang out and talk and enjoy the huge 75 inch TV in the Living room. We played games, talked, and relaxed. My brother has already booked it again for later in the year. I almost don't want to give such a great review as I know it will continue to book and I don't want to fight for time! Ritchie deserves it. He came and checked on us once after working the farm all day and it was great meeting him. Down to earth guy providing for his boys. You will love this place!!
