James and I spent our anniversary weekend at a sweet, sweet old 1920’s farmhouse bed and breakfast situated in a valley on a dairy farm near wine country. We had the entire home and surrounding countryside all to ourselves!!! The lovely old house smelled, looked and felt just like a Grandma’s house. When we arrived and started to come down from the busyness of our lives we were very teary and weepy for the first 24 hours. This was just the respite our bodies, souls and spirits needed.
Off the beaten path.
The little white house in the distance was our destination! Please click on all the pictures to enlarge them and go to my gallery to see all the pictures from our weekend.
This home housed three stills during prohibition. I have pictures of every possible view of the land surrounding the home in my gallery, as well as pictures of the inside of the house.
The owners gave us a complimentary bottle of wine, stocked the frig with milk, orange juice, eggs, bacon, cereal and soda pop and left delicious homemade cinnamon rolls and a plate full of homemade goodies on the table for us to enjoy.
A half mile away is a pretty river. We took the ferry across to get to town. There are only two working ferries left in our state.
There’s a neat little restaurant there, too.
We spent the better part of Saturday at a local winery! We sat and sipped wine while looking out over the beautiful countryside, ate at the restaurant and toured the old underground wine cellars, ending our visit with a wine tasting. Great memories!
Me and my guy!
The cows, deer and hoot owls kept us company! Our ears rang for awhile once we arrived. The quiet was amazing. The stars at night were unbelievable. I am sick to death of the city with it’s light pollution, congestion and noise. We are looking forward to visiting again!
