Anticipating Springtime!

Watching the weather reports it seems to be the longest winter we have experienced in quite some time. We had ice earlier this week, lost power for only 2 hours.  Expecting rain this weekend and cooler than normal temperatures next week.  The good news is we are far enough south that this last blast of winter will be short lived. So looking forward to seeing the crocus poking up through the dirt and enjoying other spring flowers.

Late fall and throughout the winter, Jerry cleared brush and dead trees on the back part of the 40 acres, what an improvement in appearance. He offered the hardwood to local neighbors and the owner of his favorite barbecue place. Jerry knocks the dead trees over with his dozer, the guys cut them up with their chainsaws and haul away. We keep much of the wood for all the fire pits. The log splitter is one of many toys, I mean tools, we use to keep heavy lifting to a minimum and save hours of labor.

One of the first spring projects will be to erect a tee-pee on the property. This will be placed in a secret location to be discovered on one of the many walking trails. Just another fun thing to enjoy during a stay at Country Charm!  We are also in the planning stages to build two additional cabins. After soliciting opinions from several of our guests, we are looking to buy a pontoon that will be available for guests to rent. 

We are now headed into our 15th year of hosting guests from around the country and some from around the world. Still enjoying what we do, living our dream and hearing other peoples life stories. Thanks to all of our many guests and the growing number of repeat guests that keep us going and remaining positive.
