What a treat !! when we realized that a beautiful owl was spending the day on our porch. It just so happens that the picture over the fireplace of the Chestnut Cabin is of a huge screech owl in flight. It almost seemed that this little guy knew he was supposed to perch on that particular porch. He was really very tolerant with all of us taking pictures and did not seemed to be disturbed by the flashes…except to open his big eyes and look down at us. We check every day to see if he has returned…not yet , but maybe when we least expect it, one of our guests will have the pleasure of his big eyes watching over them on the back porch.
What a great place to spend a fall day…in a cabin, in the mountains of North Carolina with flaming red, gold, yellow and orange leaves swirling all around you. Just imagine sitting in our Amish rockers or curled up on the willow couch on the cabin porch , fireplace blazing, snuggled up with your honey and a warm drink!!!!! That’s what your missing if you haven’t been here to experience it for yourself….so what are you waiting for? Fall is : mountains, sparkling leaves, that damp leaf smell that warms your soul, hikes, jackets, long distance views that have been hidden by summers leaves. Sounds like Romance to me !!!
“does this look like a headboard to you?” is all I had to say to Myron and in less than 3 hours from the time we saw this piano sound board hiding behind a pile of chairs 45 min. away from The Farm Cabins and Cottages, it was hanging on the wall in Clara Parker Cottage !!! You just have to come see it and make music as you go to sleep !!!!
The last of the cottages is in its final phase of construction and will be added on in April 2010. We are really excited to have all 5 completed and ready for our guests to enjoy. This has been a very busy year for all of us and especially Myron as he has made so much of the “cutesy” pieces for each cottage. From the tobacco-stake headboards in the Parker house,to the mirror and valence in the Cooper house, to the Mountain Laurel bedside table, picture frames and clothes hanger and full headboard all made from red barn wood and the full dinning room table in the Cooper house. Never mind the kitchen cabinets and other various items !!!! ( Does that list make you tired just reading it? well it should!!!) He will really enjoy this summer off??? Of course there is always something more to make, like the really fabulous gates and “just one more storage shed” !!!!

” We had such a wonderful stay at The Farm cabins this week. It was everything we had hoped for and more! The cabin was such a delight and was the perfect accommodation for our family. It was hard to leave yesterday, it truly felt like home ! Our oldest asked if we could live there! Thank you so much and we hope to see you again next year!”
” We wanted to thank you all for making our stay so comfortable and delightful! We loved loved loved the Chestnut Cabin-it was all we could ask for for our mountain getaway, esp. the fireplace ! -and definitely plan to visit again.
We realized after leaving we didn’t write all of this in the guest book as planned, but we wanted to make sure you know how much we enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the little extras: the fire already laid, the shampoo we forgot, the cozy blanket by the fire, etc etc. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! Your cabin and property are wonderful.”
