Our spring garden

Pleasant Springs Farm
Spring 2015

Dear Friends,

It's Spring! The last snowflake is a memory. Thank goodness. Winter outlived her welcome this year.

Geese are mating on the island. Frogs are beginning to sing. Daffodils and crocus are showing their pretty new heads, and Josephine needs a haircut! Badly. My three sheep are hardy souls. They did not mind the snow one bit. They had hay and grain to eat and were perfectly happy. You can see from the length of Josephine's wool that they had excellent cold protection.

The chickens were happy in their little house. They quit laying for a month or two, but are now making up for lost time and giving me lots of delicious, fresh eggs. Just for YOU! Fresh eggs make great breakfasts.

Hoping to see old friends and great new ones this B&B season.

Always,

Peg Coleman


Josephine wants to be your friend.

Step back in time to a log cabin built in 1768, utterly secluded yet 28 miles from the Nation's Capitol, near Sugarloaf Mountain, the C&O Canal, several golf courses, parks, MARC commuter train and good restaurants, including the reknowned VOLT and the Comus Inn.

Pleasant Springs Farm is the only inn in the Agricultural Reserve!

Our eighteenth century log cabin, lovingly restored, is entirely yours for the night. Perfect honeymoon cottage or romantic getaway. Also a beautiful site for family reunions and for nature lovers. Farm products include wool yarn, soap, shepherd's whimsies, and more!


Blue Ribbon Award in Historic Resources, American Institute of Architects, November 17, 2000, presented to Richard Chenoweth and Mark Broyles, AIA, for the restoration of our cabin.
Featured on cable TV, "Old Homes Restored," January, 2002, and Girls Life Magazine, December 2001 issue. Also seen in Country Homes, Country Gardens, fall 1997; and in Washington Post, Nov. 10, 1999.
The porch with less activity — a peaceful, inviting place to begin your stay, look at the gardens, and to experience the colors, the smells, and the butterflies.


Your hosts, Jim and Peg Coleman.
