Private Guest Room in a Western North Carolina Homestead
Come enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural 150-year old farmhouse, conveniently located within easy driving to many western North Carolina attractions.
The bright and sunny guest suite, which has its own private entrance, includes an en suite bathroom, a comfy queen bed, and TV w/ DVD and lots of movies. (Wifi and cellphone coverage are a bit spotty)
An extra cot is available upon request.
The room boasts a small balcony that overlooks vast flower and vegetable gardens, a small stream, and lovely shade trees. The spacious yard is a perfect location for wandering, or just reading, resting, and enjoying the view. The property is home to a host of lively critters, such as chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, and plenty of birds, as well as our family dogs and cats.
I am an excellent cook, and for a small extra charge, I can also serve you a full hot breakfast that includes coffee or tea, eggs from my own hens, and homemade blueberry muffins. Other meals are available upon request.
You are welcome to rise early or sleep in, though we do have a rooster!
Enjoy complete privacy or come sit in the kitchen and share a cup of tea with me.
If you need to arrive late, you can come around the right side of the house to the deck and go up the stairs to your room. A private key code will be provided.
Interaction with guests
I have lived here a long time (38 years) and am happy to help any way I can.
There are several guidebooks in the room to help you plan your days.
I enjoy visiting with my guests when you want company but always respect your quiet and privacy.
Attention Gardeners: If you have an interest in organic gardening, I would be happy to share tips and my expertise in exchange for a little help with planting/harvesting.

A true foodie, I like to cook and especially when I have someone here to cook for.
