Hello! Welcome to Hekate Farm! (Here's an intro but for those not interested in reading our backstory please scroll to the bottom and read our small list of rules. Thanks!) We recently moved into a very lovely old farm property with a pretty extensive "yard" and thought this may be a great way to make doggo friends and share the wealth! We spent the last year living in a huge home downtown with not a strip of grass to call our own and my ol gal Athena (6 going on 60) suffered from the conditions all year being usually a farm dog who lays in the sun making you question if she is alive sometimes she's so content 🤣 when we went to dog parks I felt uncomfortable letting her off leash because there were such a large amount of dogs allowed at one time and she is unfixed so very popular 🙄😮💨 and also tends to be the one our four legged friends "with something to prove" (😅) like to challenge and feel threatened by unfortunately. She just came to relax and play so it wasn't our scene. Now that I'm in a position to host a site like that myself I look forward to being the place where 2 & 4 legged people can go to have a little privacy, maybe meet for a doggo date, (we have a 3-5 dog max ATM but may go up to 5-10 when I get more fencing) maybe even a picnic!, while enjoying a day, a few hours, or even just a lunch break or morning/afternoon/evening/late night stroll around some good old Midwestern farmland just outside the city with your dog(s). Enjoy peace and quiet to yourselves or Athena is happy to meet anyone and keep them company for a while too! She gets lonely and can't play with her little fur brother as rough as she'd like because he's a kitty and mommy doesn't like seeing him gets smushed by her when they play rough lol. A little about Athena: She is a HUGE lover and sweetest girl ever. I owned her parents and her grandfather and none of them ever in their lives showed a sign of unprovoked aggression toward any living thing, the kind of dogs that literally will boop noses with birds and chipmunks of they get the opportunity, I've seen it many times over the decade+ owning the bloodline #BlesedToBeTheirKeeper. She has never bred but we hope to allow her a single litter this spring if we find the right guy for her, were very picky. She's has had false pregnancies so I think she should be allowed to have her own babies once in life and my kids are ready for a Stark kids kind of deal at their ages finally 😅 We are hoping to use the money from this to save up for service dog training so she can do meet and greets with people (especially elderly as she LOVES the elderly) who may be in need of some Doggo snuggles 🐕🦺🥰 she is desperate for snuggles 🙄😅🤷🏻♀️ figured I'd make a professional out of her and give her days a little more purpose and fulfillment in all the ways I can 😁💓 Ok enough about my 4 legged Queen lol, for those of you looking for a little escape time with your pups I totally get it! Just let me know you'd like some privacy and for and additional $5 ($Beairyel or COA) I will halt booking while your visiting us and I'd be happy to oblige if you'd prefer Athena stays inside loving her furry little kitty brother to no end. Some of our fur babies need solo roam time! I get it! I do too every now and then. Hence moving back to the country lol. We hope to have you visit soon! Enjoy your day! (Some rules but not many: *No smoking cigarettes (I am very allergic as well as one of my children), no doing hard drugs or drinking in access before or during your visit here to the Hekate Farm. No exceptions. This is a natural place where you come to do natural stuff. Thanks. *No engagement in any violent or sexual behavior during your visit. This is a family home with children who live here and have windows and go outside at will. I protect mine on all levels at all costs. *Absolutely no littering of any kind and please do your best to pick up after your pet if they do their dooty anywhere you can easily access it. Don't have to trudge into the bramble after their done or anything but if you can safely reach it to dispose of it please do. *No approaching the house or anyone inhabiting it for ANY reason other then myself (Be) and Athena of she is with me. I can be reached at 608-709-9130 to address any needs you may have and if Ian not be reached unfortunately you are on your own or may call 911 if in need of assistance but not approach the home. Ever. *Please stay in designated areas doing designated activities. We do not provide a bathroom site for #2 for humans at this time under any circumstances and I think most people know where it's appropriate to do a tinkle in the outdoors if ur in an emergent situation (not in eyeline sight of the house or garage for starters lbvs) Breaking any of these rules will immediately end your visit,period. Doing so more then once is grounds for permanent ban from visiting at our discretion. We hope you understand and are willing to respect us and our home! 😁💓 I am not getting notifications from SniffSpot so please send a heads up text to 6087099130 before heading over for your adventure so we will not be caught off guard for visitors! Thank you!
Enjoy the great outdoors and explore our private pond and active creek.
-BLOCKED OFF FOR HUNTING SEASON- Please inquire if you’d like to book- we can be flexible!! Our hiking trails are located next to our home however you will not hear or see people on the trails that are accessible to you. PLEASE NOTE: Our trails are adjacent to public hunting land. Please be aware and use caution that you *may* hear gunshots during the fall months of hunting season! 28 acres of hiking trails to explore with your pup(s)! These trails are groomed and offer a workout for you and your dog. They are set back in the woods and are wonderful for photo opportunities! Some hills are VERY STEEP so please use caution and dress appropriately for hiking. Please park along left side tree line in grass. Trail access starts right there!
￼Come and let your dog explore, play, and swim on our beautiful family farm. Our farm means the world to us and we think you will love it just as much. Our farm lies on 40 acres ￼in Bull Valley, Illinois. Although it is not fenced in, our property is doggy heaven for dogs trained to be off-leash. Come take a walk, bring a frisbee/ball, or just come let your dog sniff and explore. We have many farm animals on our property as well. Please be respectful of our property. We take pride in our farm and love sharing it, but we want to keep it beautiful. Entry in any of the barns/buildings is prohibited. Please remain in the back of our property. We do live on the property and appreciate our privacy.
We own 50 acres of woods, trails and winding ponds throughout the property.
Welcome! You + your dog(s) will love our almost five acres of open land to run + play until their hearts are content. There is a pond in the front yard that is suitable for dog swimming most days + the backyard is tree lined. Tennis balls can always be randomly found throughout the yard + if they’re lucky, maybe a toy or two.
Bring your pups to enjoy our .25-acre 5-foot fully fenced lot. Fencing is modified at the bottom 2-feet so even the most miniature dogs cannot escape. (See pictures for detail) Safety is our priority! Our in-ground, heated, swimming pool is available for an extra charge. Please see the EXTRAS for booking. If this option is not chosen, the pool will be closed with the safety cover in place and there will be no access to the pool. Dog life jackets are not provided.
Small and private, surrounded by trees. Feel free to leave the fenced area and climb down hill to the lake. If you have a tiny escape artist, this fence will likely keep them contained.
Beautiful secluded property with a creek running through it. The backyard is about 1 acre with a big open field surrounded by large mature trees and a creek bordering the back side. Dogs must be trained not to run off as we do not have a fence. Old fence posts show the property lines. You can to take a dip in the creek with your dog to cool off on hot days. The water does flow so I wouldn't recommend it for really small dogs. The water is fairly shallow but can get high and flow fast after heavy rain. You will have to walk down a small hill to enter the creek. The weeds get high by the water but I have made 2 separate paths to enter the creek. Entering the creek is at your own risk. The creek is on the property line so the land across the creek is not part of the property so please do not go across the creek. If you do plan on going in the creek I recommend water shoes and a towel, it can get muddy by the water. And it can also get buggy, so you might want to bring bug spray as well. Feel free to move any of the chairs from the firepit to anywhere around the yard. Please clean up after your pup, garbage can is the green one by the garage. You can park on the left side of driveway by the RV and enter on the left side of the garage but it's a bit crowded over there so you may want to park on the right side by the brick walkway and enter the yard in between the house and the garage.
Located just off Rock River on 1/2 to 3/4 acre lot with woods in back and delightful front lawn on dead end road for you and your dog's safety. Summer months can use easement to Rock River for a swim or just a view. River walk half block away from Dogtastic Park! Plan some time to relax and enjoy the park and the water!!
