I'm a good home cook and my son who lives right down the road is CIA Chef.
The dining room has a rustic, large, family-style dining table, and a wood stove with cozy window seats. This is perfect for a couple (or 2) to cook and eat a meal together, or for a solo traveler to enjoy sitting in front of the wood stove after a winter day of hiking or skiing.
The screened in porch and pergola overlook the backyard, creek, and fields. There are established perennial gardens, rock gardens and an organic vegetable garden. The backyard is completely private. This very special spot is adored by many local trout fisherman during fishing season. The outdoor shower and winter season outdoor hot tub, offer relaxation after a day of hiking or skiing. Star gaze into the night skies.
From morning to night, surround yourself in the beauty and peace of nature.
