Pleasant Springs Farm
Summer, 2014

Dear Friends,

Summer is here and it’s a hot one. On these long summer evenings, guests sit on the porch, light up the citronella candles, sit back and watch the clouds go by. Somewhere there are crowds. Somewhere sirens scream. Somewhere there’s violence. But here at Pleasant Springs, there’s no sound but the chirping of crickets and no light but the twinkle of fireflies. Unless of course, you choose to turn on the porch light.
We are so very thankful that Montgomery County has an agricultural preserve. To subdivide your land into plots of less than 25 acres is forbidden by law. Therefore you will see acres of corn, green pastures with brown horses, black and white cows, sheep and even a chicken or two as you drive through our preserve. The nearest cross street is Peach Tree Road and you will actually find two peach orchards, each with its own farm market.
Is the city really just one hour away? I have to pinch myself to believe it.
Come see us! We have lots of vacancies in August, September and October.
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.
