The Little House, a quaint 750 sq. ft. cabin, was built in 2009 on the foundation of a barn that once stood on this farm. By using home-sawed lumber from a nearby sawmill, local craftsmanship, and many salvaged materials, the Little House has the look and feel of an authentic pioneer cabin, but with modern touches. It is a great way to enjoy a mix of the past and the present.
The Little House will accommodate a maximum of 6 people. The open loft has a queen bed. On the main level there is a small bedroom with 2 twin beds. The couch also folds out into a full/queen bed. A television with DVDs is in the living room and all bedroom and bathroom linens are supplied. You'll need to bring your own toiletries.
A warm country breakfast will be delivered to you each morning. If you choose to prepare other meals on your own, the kitchen is equipped with a microwave, small refrigerator, hot plate and coffee pot. You will also find tableware, cookware, and kitchen linens. Basic staples will also be provided: salt and pepper, sugar, coffee and creamers. There is an outside table and grill for your use (charcoal is not provided).
In the Little House you will find several replicas from a pioneer era of long ago, but there are conveniences of today: running water, shower, and air conditioning. A wood-burning stove provides warmth for those cold winter nights.
During your stay here, whether you are by yourself, a couple, a family, or a group of friends, we want you to feel the peacefulness of simpleness anyway you choose. You can explore our surroundings, play old fashioned games, relax on the porch swing or just spend some time alone.
Hopefully, you will find it a unique, wonderful experience!
