An old barn/machine shed transformed into a great little rustic retreat (which we affectionately call "Westhaven")! A great secluded place to get away from the day-to-day grind. Hiking trails on the premises and possible kayaks. About 5 miles from civilization (town). Come unwind! Friendly dogs WELCOME (we speak WOOF! :-) )

The space
Come spend a night or two in a wonderfully rustic remodeled machine shed/barn, affectionately called "Westhaven" (because it's west of our house!).

When you find the lane (just over 1/2 mile long), just take a moment to pause at the end and think about relaxing from that moment on. Take in the beauty as you meander down the long driveway which crosses over a creek & eventually brings you to your lovely accommodations.

Upon arrival you'll admire the unique barn-type structure you'll be hanging out in, up to your left in the barn yard. The full, open concept studio-type living quarters is VERY inviting! It has an eclectic rustic style that instantly makes you feel warm & fuzzy.

If you need anything...just ASK!

We have a well stocked kitchen including a toaster oven, hot & cold water dispenser, 2 burner hotplate, small refrigerator w/ a tiny freezer, BBQ grill & microwave. Also included are pots and pans, plates, wine glasses, mugs, cooking utensils, forks/knives/spoons, baggies, aluminum foil, etc, etc, etc! Oh, and help yourself to spices, hot cocoa, popcorn, granola bars, instant oatmeal, S&P & whatever else is available to eat.

The bathroom is spacious & has a cozy feeling with it's rustic wood decor. This room also has all the "goodies" you need (toothpaste, shampoo, etc) in case you forget something from home.

There are very nice porches on both sides of the building. One side has a few chairs and an amazing overlook of beautiful farm land, the other side has a BBQ grill & a table and chairs for those long, warm, beautiful spring, summer or fall days and nights.

If you're pondering this place DO NOT HESITATE!! We book up quickly, it seems. We also offer a no-fee cancellation policy, if your plans change. As one guest said, this place is "a slice of country heaven".

We love to mnt bike, road bike, kayak,motorcycle (road, trails, gravel roads), race triathlons, play with our two dogs (a Jack Russell, "Cujo", and Dutch Shepherd mix, "Axl", but you never know if another dog might be visiting as well!). We have a couple outdoor cats too (who like to hide when visitors come). Jilly likes to run trails and swim open water. We work hard, play harder. Love a great sunset or rise! We love to hike, bike and off-road motorbike in the South and West as much as possible. We read a lot, and like to experience new things! We also run three businesses! And we really enjoy meeting new people and sharing our blessings.

During your stay

You can have your own space, or if we are available, and you want to socialize, come join for a hike, or bike, or kayak ride. We love to do campfires!
