This is just the cutest little cabin that was the original homeplace for this property back in 1865. We both love LONESOME DOVE so we named this cabin for GUS. (We built a two bedroom "CLARA'S CABIN" at the other end of the property. Both are very private and have their own sense of a peaceful getaway.)
It has been updated in keeping with respect for both its age and our modern needs. The kitchen boasts a new stainless GE gas stove/oven and a stainless GE fridge. It has a porcelain farm sink and the floors....while not old....are stained to match the old plank flooring in the rest of the house. There is a comfy living room with a fireplace and DirecTV and fantastic stained glass pieces done by widely acclaimed stained glass artist, Pat Williams.
The bedroom has a queen size bed and off this bedroom in the front is a reading room/bunk room with bunk beds for an extra person...although this little house is more comfortable for one or two people. We can also provide a Pack N Play if given advance notice that you are bringing a small child.
The bathroom has a slate tile floor and slate tile shower with stained glass in the window of the shower and above the sink. There is a washer and dryer in the event that you need those items. We supply a hair dryer and linens and towels for your needs. We also supply shampoo, soaps, Tide, charcoal for grilling, etc., just like your home.
There is a lovely patio in the back with a couple of tables and chairs and patio furniture with an umbrella. There is also a grill for your outdoor cookouts! We stock the pantry with condiments and other foodstuffs for your use. We generally have eggs, butter and milk and soft drinks there for your use as well.
Whatever you would like to use at the Little House, please feel free to do so.
AND....if you love fresh farm eggs, then feel free to go into the chicken coop and get some fresh eggs and in the garden behind the little chicken coop, you can pluck some fresh veggies whenever the garden yields its crops.
Please pick ALL the fresh figs that you want!
Our big dog, Sadie, will usually camp out in front of the Little House just to make sure you are taken care of. She is an Anatolian Shepherd and was bred to be a livestock guard dog. The breed hails from Turkey and I know she wishes we had much, much colder summers... She is BIG but she is a sweet girl who lays around a lot and makes sure that you are safe and secure.
It is just a lovely little cabin. Please enjoy yourself!
