About Jim and Carman
Welcome to the Roberson family farm - my parent's' legacy to my brother and I. It was from this beautiful place that I was launched into the culinary field both in education and career. In 1997, I returned to the homestead to care for my Mother and to fashion the next chapter of my life. I purchased the building and moved it to the site and set about making it a haven for myself. After Mother passed, I tackled the original farmhouse eventually moving in there when Jim retired and moved to the farm. I am deeply connected to this land, this area, this paradise. There is much maintenance on a farm this size and of course one must pay the "taxas on Tara" I had thought to sell some acreage, but the realtor I was working with suggested VRBO and thus began my newest career. It is my dream to pass along the farm to my beautifu l and talented andl daughters. It is a blessing to share homecoming with my children, grandchildren and friends. I feel the land calling to me, I hear the word enduring, I hear my Mother playing the fiddle, and I hear my Dad calling "Baby Snooks" time to come in. The preparation for inviting guest to the cottage opened my eyes to the abuncance of flora and fauna, the natural beauty that surrounds us. Blooming abundantly are wildflowers, wild herbs, berries-black berries, wild black rasberries,elberberries, wild blueberries, and black walnuts trees. Deer,wildturkey,rabbits,grouse and occasional bear can be seen. There are nights when the cottage is empty, so Jim and I take advantage and enjoy the night coming down, the moon rises, and the river sparkles like diamonds and its quiet and there is peace
Jim and Carman purchased this cottage in 1997
