Our spring garden

Pleasant Springs Farm
Spring 2015

Dear Friends,

Today feels like summer with a cool breeze. My painters just left. They painted my barn, my woodshed and the tin roofs of the log house and its woodshed!  Also painted the pergola in my garden.  It's white and a bright red honeysuckle is climbing up it. The hummingbirds will love it.

A friend gave me 5 (FIVE) tomato plants--Mortgage Lifter, Prudence Purple, Paul Robeson, Camola and Black Cherry! I'm going to have Fun with Tomatoes this year.  Maybe I can make you a tomato quiche. No?

Also new this spring are five baby chickens.  They are living in a horse trough on my enclosed back porch!! It's a great place for baby chicks.  Egg production is in the future, but they are surely cute and chirpy. Soon they will join the fat Buff Orpingtons in their little gray house with the lavender door.

We are enjoying a perfect B&B season.  So far there has been just the right number of guests, and all of them have been delightful. This is such an enjoyable job. I get to meet wonderful people whom I would not ever have met in a hundred years otherwise.  You have introduced me to so many cultures. From the Cotswolds to South Africa, to Germany, France, the Guernsey Islands, California and right back home to DC, Germantown and Gaithersburg, people have honored me with their visits. I hold each of my guests in my heart. People are splendid.

We are happily booked through the end of June, but have plenty of vacancies for the rest of the year.

Hoping to see old friends and make new ones this B&B season!

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.
