Historic but thoughtfully renovated; enjoy the 5 fireplaces, modern bathrooms, luxuriously comfortable beds. The house is in a beautiful garden-filled setting next to hiking trails. Locally sourced gourmet breakfast included in price.
The Abigail Room faces South and East. You will see our front yard and entranceway from the four 9 over 6 windows on both walls. Beautiful Asian artifacts decorate the room that you will enjoy viewing while propped up on the down pillows and under the down duvet or in the wing-back chair. Many books and magazines are available for your reading pleasure in the bookcase in the room.
You will have access to the newly renovated bathroom shared with any guests across the hall. The skylight in the bathroom will bring light into either the shower or soaking bath. Your feet will be warmed by the radiant heat, as well. You can choose to read in the library downstairs or enjoy the fire in the living room in winter or the porch swing in the other months of the year. Breakfast will be served on the porch or in the dining room, whichever you prefer. Tea/coffee is available at all times. Enjoy the plants and animals in garden and on the farm.
Interaction with guests
Jasmine and I will be happy to tell you about the attractions, food, performances, and other goodies in the area. We'd love to sit and talk with you about our individual adventures or leave you to yourselves if that is what you prefer.
Other things to note
We are just beginning to farm our property and have recently planted over 100 blueberry bushes, 50 strawberry plants, 4 fruit trees, and multiple herbs. We plant a big organic garden every year and will be adding more fruits and veggies this next year. We also plan to have animals so that we can grow most of the food we serve for our breakfasts and snacks. You are welcome to help out if you care to but get our permission before starting.
We allow no smoking in the house or close to it and especially not in the barn. We love to have visitors and expect you to act courteously as we will act toward you--this includes quiet time between 10 pm and 8 am.

Retired professor and Literacy Consultant; now proprietor of Henrietta House Bed & Breakfast and Red House Farm. I love to visit with my children and grandchild, travel, read, scuba dive, swim, cook, garden, farm, ride horses, among many other things. I cannot live without books, travel, and good food. I hope to share my lovely historic home and delightful area with other travelers.
