Look what my grandson found in
our pond! And it's happily swimming
around, breeding new generations.

Pleasant Springs Farm
Fall, 2014

Dear Friends,

Here at Pleasant Springs, Fall is a lazy, drowsy time. Naps are encouraged.
 
The rain we have had this summer means petunias, roses, mandevilla, peppers and rhubarb are still colorful, still producing, still beautiful. The agostache boasts a hummingbird or two, reluctant to leave, although the butterflies have  all flown south.
 
Mostly, the sky is a deep, turquoise blue and a cool breeze wipes away the sweat on late grass mowers and weed pullers like me. I still can’t start my gas chain saw, so I bought a battery-powered one. It works surprisingly well although I dearly miss the loud, quick chunk of wood-stove-sized logs from my beloved Echo. That’ll teach me not to break my right arm again.

I’m trying out a new recipe for brocolli/carrot frittata. Guests like it.
 
Come see us! We still have vacancies in this lovely, cool month.

As always,
 
Peg

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.
