About Anita Scheelings
Anita and Bob Scheelings, formerly owned and operated Skull Valley Lavender Farm in Arizona, and in 2016 started Mulberry Lavender Farm in Mulberry, TN. The couple and all the farm animals (and even a lot of lavender plants) relocated to their new home on Mulberry Creek. The farm grows lavender, cut flowers, healthy veggies, and raise Navajo Churro Sheep, and Heritage Chickens, Geese, and Turkeys.
Anita Scheelings purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Anita Scheelings chose Mulberry
Tennessee is lush and beautiful and you will hardly find friendlier people anywhere. From the small farm in Arizona, we searched long for the right farm with the right attributes for diversified, restorative farming, and the right soil and climate for lavender, and truly feel we hit the jackpot with this beautiful historic farm in Lincoln County.
What makes this Cottage unique
Jack Daniel's older brother Wiley used to own this farm. He was a Civil War veteran, surviving at least three of the main battles including Gettysburg. The farm is a haven for wildlife, and Mulberry Creek borders on the west - Almost any time of the day you can look up from whatever you are doing and see deer in the fields taking an interest in you. The horses and sheep are peacefully grazing on the lush pastures. The early settlers of this farm had the good sense to plant lots of nut trees, so we can enjoy gathering nuts like pecans, and walnuts. Old houses and old trees always make you wonder, what it has 'seen'. To see the rough saw marks in the real wood floorboards. Nothing being quite straight. It is all about character. For folks looking for just a bed in a hotel we are not the right place - If you are looking to unwind and enjoy the experience of farm life and a home that will speak to you - Come on over!!

One night stay
We stayed here just for one night, but wish we had another. It was very quiet and charming. The property owners are amazing. Very knowledgeable down to earth people.
We enjoyed the unplugging very much.
Thank you Rachel for taking the time to leave your nice review. It is enjoyable to have guests like you who come as strangers but leave as friends. We all need time to unplug now and then :-)
Perfect place to unplug
Cottage was clean and cozy. Breakfast was delicious. Owners were friendly and accommodating.
It is fun to see people enjoy their time here on the farm and the area.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. It was a nice get away to slow down from our busy lives! We loved waking up and watching the birds as we drank coffee on the porch! Anita made the most wonderful breakfast for us each morning!! I would recommend a stay at the farm.
Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to leave your nice review. Breakfast credit goes to Bob, he's the 'chef' and goes all out every morning to get it just right. I just deliver it :-)

Great folks, breakfast and farm setting that was a great break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Anita and Bob were great.
Thanks Lisa! Glad you enjoyed your stay! The colder weather is a nice excuse to be warm and toasty by the fire.
We were told by the owner about what to expect and it was exactly as told. No frills but cozy setting on the property of a working farm. It's wonderful to be "unplugged" and to just enjoy the sound of the leaves rustling, the animals, and the warmth of this tiny little cottage. Our hostess was a delight and the breakfast that she provided was wonderful. Wish we could have had one more day to unwind and relax. Such a pleasant surprise!
Thank you so much Deb & George. It is our pleasure to share the opportunity to relax and unwind on our farm among the critters and to hear that it is relished. You were so quiet and left everything so clean we could hardly tell you were there! You and Buzz are welcome any time you need some time to get away!
Great quiet country get away.
My wife Nancy and I had a great time staying with Anita and Bob last week. We came down for "The Jack" BBQ festival and staying on their farm was the perfect distance from town and allowed for a nice romantic break. They were the perfect hosts. Bob's breakfasts were great. We spent quite a bit of time talking with them. They made sure we had everything we needed and were very accommodating in anything we asked. If you want to get away from it all in a rustic quiet country setting, this is the place for you.
It is a delight hearing of all your plans and ideas and I hope you will keep us posted on how things evolve. The Jack BBQ weekend is always a busy one with multiple guests, and it is fun to see that the guests from all over interact and have fun in the shared areas such as the parlor and the grounds.
