About the owner: My husband (Bryon) and I purchased the James Campbell Farm property in 1990 and spent many years restoring the original (1780's) log house as our home. Subsequently we have refurbished all of the farm buildings. We have planted 100's of trees (mostly native species), created vegetable, herb and flower gardens, replanted the orchard, developed fruit vines - red and black raspberries, and grapes as well as blueberries. In addition to raising much of what we eat we cut firewood on our sustainably managed forests and now offer guests the opportunity to catch and release the fish in the pond -- Come and see how 'green' country life can be!
Why the Owner Chose Fort Hill, PA, USA:
Bryon and I decided to renovate and expand one of the many buildings on James Campbell Farm as a guest house for family and friends. They have enjoyed it so much, we begin to rent it so that others have an opportunity to enjoy 'our little piece of paradise.' Our 2nd season has been very successful with both U.S. and international guests. Many of our guests have said, 'I wish I could live here!' And, BEAUTIFUL is the word most frequently used to describe the property.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage feels like it is 'tucked' into its very own 'special' spot. There are many types of bird feeders that attract a variety of birds. Flowerbeds attract butterflies. There are ducks, great blue heron and kingfisher on the pond. And on any given day you might see woodcock, ruffed grouse, wild turkey and white-tailed deer. If you are lucky you might hear a great horned owl, screech owl, or a coyote. The view from the dining area overlooks the pond, forests and mountains.
