  1. I am so happy to see this write up that came to me via Facebook. My family ,the Brashear’s, are the ones who built the Barn. I was lucky enough to be one of them that lived in the small house that remains on the property. I have also retuned as a guess to the Barn Anew and love the recreation of a wonderful barn. Many memories of growing up there with my family.


    • Wow! Thank you for sharing that! Your family clearly did a fine job; you certainly are lucky to have lived there. I’m so happy that it still exists, and is being well cared for. It’s a beautiful spot, and is definitely one of the most memorable places I’ve ever stayed. I can only imagine what it was like in its pre-B&B days as a working barn!
