Our historic homestead was established in the early 1900s and is filled with glimpses of the past! The charming cabin rooms will accommodate 2-4 and comfortably invites visitors to enjoy a peaceful night's rest.
Sip wine under the stars, watch deer graze in the pastures, or just sit back & relax! The historic farmhouse is located just 5 minutes off I-77 & very close to Princeton. Why stay overnight in a hotel when this beautiful place is just a short drive away?
Things on the farm remain pretty much the way they were when great grandma lived there in the early 1900's. Guests today have a few more modern conveniences including wifi, landline, tv, and . . . a bathroom, replacing the old outhouse that once stood on the farm.
Your bedroom comes complete with natural air conditioning, made possible by raising the old rolled glass windows and propping them up with a stick. The freshness of the cool mountain air filling the room brings with it the night sounds of owls and crickets chirping softly in the stillness..
If a rain should be falling on the old tin roof, you're in for a special treat. There's nothing like listening to the soothing raindrops as you curl up with a good book or nap the entire afternoon..
Guests can go for a walk to the old barn, go fishing in the river, watch deer graze in the pastures, or make conversation around the crackling fire while taking in the beauty of a clear, starlit night.
Time stands still at this old farm, rusted glimpses of days gone by, inviting guests to visit and remember when life was simpler. Paradise awaits!
