About this listing
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.
Henrietta Suite is a beautiful light-filled space with cathedral ceilings and exposed beams. It has its own brand-new bathroom with deep soaking tub, heated floor tiles, and skylight. If you stay in this room you will have a private entrance and your own balcony from which you can view our small farm and gardens. You can have your tea or coffee out there in the morning or a snack in the afternoon. Enjoy a late lie-in under the down comforter in the queen-size bed.
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 deck 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 and take a hike on the adjacent Byles trail.
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 125 blueberry bushes, 100 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 have chickens from which we gather the eggs for your breakfast. We raise a couple of pigs seasonally. Bacon, sausage, and ham that come from them are delicious! 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.
