- Since the property has operated as a B&B, there are 7 guest rooms in the original home with a 3rd floor bed and bath for owners quarters. All rooms have private baths. An additional renovated cottage is also on the property that has been for overnight guests.
- The former summer kitchen became part of the main house in 1978 by means of a sun room extending from the rear of the main house to the east end of the summer kitchen. The structure is frame and at one time had a metal roof. Original exposed ceiling beams remain, along with a narrow circular stairway to the left of the hearth that led up to a loft that was probably used as sleeping quarters for slaves and farm hands. To the right front of the hearth, floorboards can be removed to expose a small hiding area under the floor said to have sheltered runaway slaves prior to the Civil War as part of the Underground Railroad.
- The B&B sits on two parcels totaling
- 10.5 acres. The farmhouse, cottage, barn, and corncrib sit on
- 8.2 acres and the
- 2.3 acre lot across the street includes a pond, a labyrinth, and several gardens.
- A blacktopped area (formally a tennis court) can be tented for events and there is a fenced pasture area for horses.
Horse Facility Features
- The style of the stone barn is of interest to historians as this type of barn was built in our area only in the late 1700s to the mid-1800s. The barn is typical architecture style for barns in eastern and central PA. It is believed that the original section of the barn was constructed prior to building the house. The barn's foundation and walls are constructed of limestone with vertical slits on the northeast and southwest sides. The vertical ventilation slits are wider on the inside than the outside of the wall to enable early settlers to have a wide angle for shooting. After a fire destroyed the post-and-beam frame portion of the barn in 1975, a cinder block foundation and frame walls were added on the northwest and southeast sides.
