Red Barn & Cedar
Way back in the 1940′s in a field near the county road, right here on what we call Cedar Mountain Farm, a big hay barn was built. The builders painted it in a traditional farm fashion–red. We know that it wasn’t painted again between 1950 and the time it blew down in a storm during the late 1980′s. Typical farmers, we salvaged barn wood from the “Old Red Barn” and reused the now well-weathered panels on the sides of other barns here on the farm. As we worked to finish a basement room in the main cabin, we remembered that a bit of that siding remained. The last unused boards from the original Old Red Barn now grace the Red Barn Room. The floor likewise reflects our thrifty nature–most of the tiles were leftovers from the rest of the house.
Cedar, the companion room to Red Barn, boasts newer paneling. About a third of the way up Cedar Mountain lies a favorite family spot we call the picnic grounds. (I remember during my childhood Daddy would trek up the hill with homemade root beer. He placed it in Lightning Creek to cool for our family gatherings.) Right around the year 2000, hubby Al harvested a large Cedar tree from this picnic area–a leaner that needed thinning out. He cut boards using a portable sawmill, ran them through the planer and used them to finish this room.

"Thank you Al and Daryl for another amazing stay! We always love coming here, but this year was especially fun. We got to see baby chicks hatch for the first time, feed the week old lambs, and play and snuggle up with the kittens. We had such good timing! "
