Room # 15 – Gunpowder Room


The Gunpowder Room is Bill's antidote to all of the "frufru, girly-type decorations" in some of the other rooms. There is nothing remotely "girly" about this "manly man's" room. The tall full size bed, hidden in a cave-like alcove, virtually requires a running leap to get into and is overlooked by (a picture of) a black bear. The sink is the only accession to indoor plumbing.


July 2008: We’re packing up now wishing we could stay longer. Coming here has been like going to Grandma’s house when you’re little. There’s a big, home-cooked breakfast, warm cookies, and a comfy blanket to ward off the early morning chill. There are books and games and movies, and, most importantly, an abundance of comfort and peace. Needless to say, we love it here. We’ll be back soon, this time with friends and family in tow. Greg & Ellen, San Diego, California

June 2012: What a fabulous home! Even better than the picture! Your friendly atmosphere and warm, inviting way-of-life is just what we hoped for. Sophie is hilarious and we loved her company, too. Thank you for the fabulous breakfasts and lively conversations. We wish you continued joy, peace & happiness. Chuck & Beth, Enterprise, Alabama

August 2008: Thanks for making this a good stay! We love our room with the cool roofline & rafters. Aside from the amazing breakfast, my favorite place was the porch with hummers, though the hot tub after a long hike was also terrific. We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary, and I’m so glad we found you! Thanks for being our home away from home. Meagan & Ben, Urbana, Illinois
