Welcome to our Bed and Breakfast! Step
through the entrance way into a typical farm home of the 19th
century with walls 2 1/2 feet thick built of natural limestone. It's not
a house of large proportions and the decor is not fancy or pretentious.
Walls are horsehair plaster and floors run uphill, but the reading,
conversation and entertainment rooms are comfortable. Escape your busy
world and relax.
Since moving to this farmstead we have
added a log addition that compliments, but doesn't overpower the
original cottage. A 28-foot shared stone wall forms one side of our
combination kitchen and dining area. We serve a farm style breakfast
each morning of your stay in this delightful room.
We also offer an extensive Equine
Performance Training Center specializing in personal instruction of both
horse and rider. We believe that a well-trained horse is nothing unless
the rider is equally educated. Guests are welcome to bring their own
horses and enjoy the many trails in the area.
