Pleasant Springs Farm
March 1, 2016

Dear Friends,

Here we are, on the very cusp of Spring!   We made it through another hard winter and are joyfully hearing spring peepers, seeing daffodils pop through the ground, and feeling young and happy! I hope you are happy, too.

 B&B reservations are arriving. Opening day is April 1. Former guests are getting back in touch, and new ones are coming in. A new reservation from a former guest is such a joy. So many lovely people have honored us with their stay. People from all over the world, and people from close by who are looking for a special night away from home. Going through my head is the old Girl Scout song, “Make new friends, but keep-eep the ol-ld. One is silver and the other is gold. “

That’s my B&B theme song.

Here in Maryland, when the winter is tough, spring is glorious! And we certainly suffered through 30-inches of snow and weeks of ice. So we can rejoice! A beautiful spring is nearly here.

I look forward with delight to greeting former guests and meeting new ones!


Josephine wants to be your friend.

To the many friends and visitors of Peg Coleman and Pleasant Springs Farm

We are saddened to report that Peg passed away at her home on October 7th surrounded by her family. She was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Jim, in 2014. She loved her farm and the little log cottage that became her bed and breakfast. Those of you who have met her and stayed at the cottage over the years were cherished by both Peg and Jim. Thank you for your friendship and patronage over the years.

A memorial service will  be held at the Boyds Presbyterian Church, 19901 White Ground Rd., Boyds, MD 20841, on October 29th at 11:00am. All are welcome to come and remember her wonderful life with us.

Step back in time to a log cabin built in 1768, utterly secluded yet just 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 Comus Inn.

Pleasant Springs Farm is the only Bed and Breakfast in the Agricultural Reserve; there are no hotels.

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.

Blue Ribbon Award in Historic Resources, American Institute of Architects, Nov. 17, 2000, presented to Richard Chenoweth and Mark Broyles, AIA, for the restoration of our cabin.
Featured on TV, "Old Homes Restored," Jan. 2002, and Girls Life Magazine, Dec. 2001 issue. Also seen in Country Homes, Country Gardens, fall 1997; and Washington Post, Nov. 10, 1999. The porch with less activity—a peaceful, quiet place to get away from the city, enjoy breathing the sweet air and be with nature.

Your hosts, Jim and Peg Coleman.
