Stay for the night or a farm vacation in our comfortable, environmentally friendly B & B, a newly, with all natural materials, renovated guest room that features a queen-sized bed, a private entrance, and a shared or private 4-pc bath. Our guest room is a non-smoking, pet-free unit.
Our farmhouse is at least 150 years old and we have done our best to retain the simplicity and beauty of the original materials in the house by conserving them with old-fashioned care, using natural oils and finishes, all organic. Any modern materials we have added for comfort and convenience are non-toxic, and we have carefully selected them to complement the old and maintain the harmony of the house. Almost all the textiles in our guest room are from certified organic origins, which means the cotton was grown and processed without pesticides or any other chemicals. The duvets on the beds are of wild silk and down from ducks. The pillows are made with stone ground buckwheat hulls, a natural, healthy choice good for your comfort and sleep.
You will see the evidence of the original structure of the house in the exposed beams and boards. Those beams were hewn in an up-and-down sawmill just up the Matheson Brook, which flows close to this farm. And if you examine the boards, you will notice they are far wider and longer than any available today. Closer inspection will reveal the narrow annual growth rings in the wood, testimony to the slow growth and enormous size of trees that once filled these woodlands. Those days are long gone; so don’t miss those 18-inch boards in the kitchen and living room - the dream of every wood lover!
We serve a full breakfast between 7 and 9 AM, but we would be grateful if you could let us know the night before what time best suits you to eat in the morning. We serve mainly our own organic produce. You can also ask us for fresh farm produce to take along. We usually have on hand organic venison and goat products, vegetables, eggs, shiitake mushrooms and more. Just check with us and we will let you know what is available during your visit.
And just in case you are wondering, the name Green Dragon came from a dream... -watch out! He is around! If you wish, you might find him.... ! Dragons bring good luck and a taste of magic!
RATE: STC $ 75.00/night. We offer weekly rates.
