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

Pleasant Springs Farm
Spring, 2014

Dear Friends,

Spring is here at last! After spending those cold- cold-cold days of winter dreaming of crawling around in the cool, moist dirt, weeding with the warm sun on my back,  WELCOME SPRING!

Now more than ever our seclusion comforts us. As we turn off the main road and into our lane, we breathe, “Ahhhhhh.” The crowded streets and gridlocked highways are left behind.  Nature calms us and the trees and pond seem blissful. We roll down the window and sniff. Ahhhhh.

This year we have plenty of fresh eggs. Our five beautiful hens are a year old now and laying profusely. They welcome visitors with their gentle, sweet gurgles, hums and clucks. Always cheerful and busy, the Buff Orpingtons and Rhode Island Reds make smiles.

Our dear friends, Barb and Martha, have painted the fence again! And replaced the pickets broken by marauding deer. It looks lovely. I wish the garden looked as nice as the fence.

Come see us!

As always,

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.
