Farmhouse

The Farmhouse started as a small three-room house. Then, as the years went by subsequent owners have made changes and additions. There is the upstairs addition, two actually. Then the North Wing, the South Wing, the East Wing and the West Wing. There are seven bedrooms and four bathrooms, also the Music Room, the Library, a Screen Porch, Dining Room, the Game Room, the Kitchen, which is so large we have to differentiate the Kitchen from the Second Kitchen.

The Farmhouse was re-built in the 1930s after a housefire. After living in it the first six years we lived here, we've renovated it and are ready to open it as lodging for groups such as reunions, couple's retreats. The farmhouse has seven bedrooms and four baths and sleeps up to 20 comfortably.

For the kids, we have a suite of rooms upstairs in the East Wing: the Captain's Quarters (in progress), the Quarterdeck and the Shipwreck.
