Welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy learning about our bed & breakfast as much as we enjoy running it. We have spent several years bringing this property back to its old glory – renovating the main house, cottage, pool, and grounds.

Most recently, we have turned the old tractor shed barn into a magnificent site that we call The Fox Den at Briar Patch for social functions such as weddings, parties, family reunions, fundraisers, and the like, as well as for business and other organization meetings. Future plans call for turning a former chicken coop into another cottage with suites and some fun landscaping projects. Stay tuned for developments!

Ellen, Dan, Henriette, and Tricia
