Life on the Farm

A bed and breakfast farm that is! When we went to the bloggers brunch in Asheville last month I looked online for a bed and breakfast to stay in.  I always enjoy them as I don't have to go very far for breakfast! This one caught my eye.  Located in Weaverville, N.C. about 15 miles north of Asheville, not very far from where we would meet up with the other bloggers. The lady that answered the phone was extremely nice as she told me about Oxford Farm.  It is a working farm with sheep, cattle, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and peacocks! That did it for me so I made the reservation.
She met us at the gate as it is kept locked until she gives you the key.  As we drove up to the house we saw these cows with very long hair! Not the best photo, but I promise I have more.
The peacocks running around
The sheep grazing

And inside the house was the story of how she came to purchase the farm and fixed it up
It was very run down

Yet she did a marvelous job with it.  It is pretty inside and out
Every morning we had muffins, coffee, and since she knew I drank tea a pot of tea was waiting for all of us in the living room
Saturday was a very fast pace for us with the bloggers brunch and antique shopping. (Thank you once again Penny!) So on Sunday we were able to get out on the farm, and that was a lot of fun.  More in my next post!

Hi Ulrike,

This B&B reminds me very much of "The little house on the Prairie". I can almost see Laura Ingalls Wilder walking around :-). It looks to me like a lovely place to stay. It has the 'right' feeling! Can imagine you had a great time.

Wish you a happy weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

There are so many treasures in the NC mountains and it looks like you found a gem. I'd love to sit on that porch with a book and just chill.

What an amazing place you found Ulrike. I just love the unpainted "finish" on the houses and it looks very cozy inside.
