About this listing
This 206 sq ft room is 1 of 4 available at the B&B. It has a queen bed and an intimate sitting alcove. The bathroom is 2 steps outside your door and shared only if the Walnut Room is booked. A full country breakfast included.
Sleeping in this large, bright, second story corner room with 9 foot ceilings and 3 large windows makes it seem as if you are lying among the clouds! The room cost of $110 includes 1-2 people and a full breakfast. The bathroom is only two steps outside your door and shared only if the Walnut Room is booked. The queen bed and nightstand were custom made by Amish craftsmen, from cherry trees timbered on Luftberg Farm, to match the antique cherry dresser. A comfortable stuffed armchair and antique spool spindle table grace the sitting alcove and make it the perfect place to read or use your laptop. Make use of the terry robes provided. Enjoy the hugeness of the bath sheet towels. Take in the fresh smell of 100% cotton linens that are air dried. The down pillows and duvet are light and airy. An old fashioned "feather bed" mattress is available upon request, as are wool and synthetic blankets and pillows.
Enjoy a cozy wood burning fireplace while you chat, watch TV, read or access your email by WiFi in the main living room. In the den, you can also watch TV (not flat screen) or play one of the many board games that the family has gathered over the years. You may want to borrow one of the Classics from the bookcase and kick back in a LazyBoy chair to read.
Or take your reading material onto one of the three porches to enjoy the fresh country air:
The screen porch allows outdoor sitting without the bugs while you watch the birds and butterflies feed on the many flowers in the backyard.
The wide wrap around front porch with rocking chairs and porch swing is a serene place to sit as you watch Amish buggies drive by and cows graze in the pastures in the valley.
The back porch is an ideal place to watch the birds and wildlife in the woods or enjoy the sight and sound of the fountain in the small pond or the water as it trickles down the waterfall on the hillside behind the house.
Enjoy a nature/camping/hunting experience without having to sleep outside:
Walk the many paths through 15 acres of woods while you look for deer, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, wild turkeys and groundhogs, as well as wild flowers and mushrooms. Or cross country ski the paths in winter.
Follow the Bluebird Trail and check out the nesting boxes to see the eggs and baby bluebirds up close.
Roast marshmallows or camper pies in the woods around the campfire just a short walk up the hill behind the house.
Enjoy a picnic in the shady grove while the kids swing under the trees or play with the collection of Tonka trucks and dozers in the sawdust pit.
Outdoor games are available such as cornhole, ladder golf, bocce ball, foursquare, ring toss, molkky, Frisbee golf...
Hunters can enjoy a comfortable bed and be only five minutes away from Mohler Wildlife Area, the state hunting grounds located on Brokaw Road.
Interaction with guests
As history lovers and world travelers, we love to share time and stories with our guests about our area and theirs. However we realize that not everyone wants to converse, so we also respect your wish for privacy.
Other things to note
A delicious home cooked breakfast is included in your stay:
Be pampered and served as your relax and sit at the kitchen table to eat and watch the many birds that come to the feeders just outside the window.
Or enjoy your meal on one of the porches or in the picnic grove.
For a more formal ambience, request your breakfast in the formal dining room where the table made from a cherry tree from the Luftberg woods can extend to twenty feet!
You may choose to participate in your breakfast by gathering your own eggs from beneath the friendly Buff hens, or picking fresh vegetables from the garden to include in your scrambled omelet. The hunter in Bryan would be pleased if you tried his fried venison summer sausage with your eggs. Enjoy pancakes or waffles served with maple syrup that Bryan and Ruth help to make each spring at a neighbor's sugar shack. Homemade bread, still warm, served with Ruth's strawberry, raspberry and blackberry jams, or fresh coffee cakes and cobblers may also be offered. If you are into lighter fare, start your day with Ruth's favorite; fresh fruit, granola and yogurt.
Coffee, tea and cocoa are available 24/7 in the Butler's Pantry.

We planned and built a large modern country farmhouse in 2004, with the intent to share it as a B&B during retirement years. Bryan is a retired teacher, having taught high school biology and anatomy for 38 years. Ruth is a retired registered nurse. We have lived on our 38 acres since 1974, raising kids, livestock and flower and vegetable gardens. We enjoy traveling the world as well as hiking in God's beautiful outdoors in our own woods and fields. Winter finds us reading before the warm fireplace, crafting in the woodshop and quilting in the sewing room.
