Once again I have given up the tractor and the never ending “to do” list that constantly beckons my call here on the farm for some quiet moments writing this newsletter.
Incidentally, if one has ever had thoughts of starting a business like this and coasting along in a free and easy manner, better think again. No complaints from me as it’s allot of work but most rewarding as we strive to provide you the best vacation experience and value.
Miss Zee and I are beginning to wind down the holidays and will be casting off via cruise ship for a week of warmer climes and someone waiting on us for a change! The farm will still be open for business under the watchful eye of our son Cailein and Mr. Jerry Lee! We will however, be back on deck after our trip to start another great year hosting our many repeat guests and new ones as well.
This up-coming spring we will be kicking off our involvement with the North Carolina Birding Trail’s Mountain Region http://www.ncbirdingtrail.org/ . After a careful site inspection by The Audubon Society, we have been selected as an official site on the Mountain Region Trail! Once opened, we will have a trail along the other side of the creek away from the cottages open to the public.
As many of our repeat guests know, our walking trail to the top of our mountain (guests only) dead ends at the top. We will be opening the trail to continue along as a loop with the trail ending over near the upper pond. You might even get Mr. Jerry Lee to show you the trail and bring you home. This trail will be strenuous (better eat your Wheaties!) while our other trails are easy and just as beautiful.
This past few months has seen some amazing changes and has created some great challenges for us all. We all here at the farm remain optimistic that the future will once again bring good things for us all.
No worries as we are not going anywhere. We will still be here for you. So, if you feel like just stepping off for a weekend away from the race, just give us a call. We can even have Miss Carey, Kara or Sherry come up and give you a great Swedish, Kaya or hot stone massage. Afterwards, don’t forget about the hot tub and blazing fireplace to complete the relaxation process.

Yours in Peace, (and quiet)
