Ganges cabin description

The log house is a beautifully restored heritage farm house built in 1907.

The house is uniquely appointed with traditional décor, down comforters, fine linens and full bathrooms with locally made soaps.

The house has two private bedrooms: one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Two captain’s beds (captain’s beds are perfect for a child or smaller person) and a queen size futon are also in place to accommodate additional guests. The house is priced at $225 at 4 person occupancy. Additional guests will be charged at $25 per person, per night.

The kitchen is fully equipped for family style meals. There is a dining table, private deck, BBQ, wood stove, and a full bath with antique claw tub/shower.

Foxglove Farm is family-friendly and children of all ages are welcome.

Dogs with responsible owners are welcome. A one-time pet charge of $25 applies. Dogs in the log house are limited to the indoor porch area only.

Foxglove cottages have fully equipped kitchens and we encourage guests to prepare meals for themselves. Bountiful baskets of hand-picked seasonal fruits, vegetables, and fresh eggs are available. It’s a foodie’s haven, eat seasonal fresh organic foods that travel zero miles from our fields and orchards to your cottage door.
