Red Chair Lavender Farm with Coffee and Supply Co. 

Eagle Businesses  are Feelin’ The Love With Groovy Tour Stops  

Story by Renee Van Ausdle

After years of working corporate jobs, Michelle Keener shifted paths, traded her business suits for cowboy boots, and took her work on the road as a tour guide, allowing her to do what she loves most – spend time with people and share the joy of discovery with guests.  

 Her business, Feelin’ Groovy Tours, was established in 2019 in Sandpoint, Idaho, to 5- star reviews, and has since relocated to the Treasure Valley. Guests can experience local tours with a vintage flare as they explore Boise’s hidden gems in an award-winning 1976 VW bus called “Georgie Girl”. It’s funky, spunky, and looks like a rolling postcard! 

The Red Chair Lavender Farm Tour is always a crowd pleaser, which begins with a stop at Coffee and Supply Co. in Eagle, Idaho, where guests can enjoy complimentary lavender-infused beverages and baked goods made with Red Chair Lavender Farms food-grade Lavender.  

From there, guests will enjoy a drive through Eagle’s beautiful countryside while learning about Eagle’s humbling beginnings, including some wayward robbers and big-name movie stars.  

Once at Red Chair Lavender Farm, guests learn how to grow, harvest, and distill lavender, including its uses. Next, guests will craft a lavender wreath to take home and can stroll down beautiful rows of lavender varieties to cut their own. The tour closes with a serving of delicious lavender-berry ice cream from the STIL and time to shop in Red Chair Lavender Farm’s quaint boutique filled with bath, body, and home products made on-site.  

This adventure is available in July and August only, so don’t miss out on scent-sational time here in Eagle, Idaho. 

“My mission is to delight my guests beyond their expectations, offer joy, experiment, and lots of “ah-ha” moments.”  Michelle said. “My desire is that my guests walk away with an experience they’ll remember for years to come, and I love being a part of that.”  

Keener is a Certified Interpretive Guide and a Certified International Tour Manager with a commercial driver’s license. Michelle aims to bring miles of smiles to community members in Eagle, Idaho, including Treasure Valley visitors.  

Feelin’ Groovy Tours offers several other tours, including the Hooked on a Feeling Urban Wine tour, in which guests can explore and taste award-winning Idaho wines as you sip your way across Eagle, Garden City, and Boise. Those wanting to know more about the City of Trees can brush up on local history on the So Happy Together Tour- a hip way to experience the old, the new, the quirky, the macabre, the meaningful, and more.  

Want something unique? Enjoy customizing a private charter, where the possibilities are endless. Have a group larger than seven? Michelle offers step- on guide services for larger vehicles. Including charter buses visiting the area.  

There is something for everyone on a Feelin’ Groovy Tour, and can be an excellent opportunity for family, friends, employee rewards, team building, and corporate events. 

What’s next for Feelin’ Groovy? Michelle’s touring horizon includes a new Boise Brewery Tour starting this May.
