Enjoy a relaxing country setting while sitting on the porch under the trees listening to the sounds of nature and maybe even a crow from our rooster "Neb". Feel free to stroll around the eclectic property, and take it all in. The Brick cottage was built in 1938. The log cabin addition was completed in the early eighties along with the Carriage House and the "The Nest" guest quarters.
Want to enjoy a quiet night by the fire? Just outside The Nest is a fire pit stocked with plenty of wood. Check the cabinets for everything you need to make the perfect s' more.
There is a grill directly under the deck to use as you please, and a small grocery just down the road if you'd like to stock up on food for your stay. If farm fresh scrambled eggs sound good for breakfast, we have plenty that our chickens lay daily, that you are welcome to.
If you'd like to see the city, Charlotte is a short hop away. Take a day trip and go catch a Panther's game, see a show, or go sightseeing.
Historic Winston-Salem is close as well. At the Old Salem Museum & Gardens, the life of the 18th-century Moravian settlers is re-created through events and restored buildings.

The hands-on SciWorks science center has a planetarium, outdoor animal habitats, and nature trails.
