Overview

About the property

Romantic cottage takes you back to friendlier times with the comforts of today

Come stay on this 1860s farm once owned by famous distiller Jack Daniel's brother, a few miles from Lynchburg and Fayetteville. Take a scenic drive from Music City Nashville, outdoorsy Chattanooga, or space and rocket Huntsville. Staying at this historic farm is an experience all its own. If you are traveling with friends, check with us to see if there is room in the farmhouse B&B.

A regular booking now comes with an all-organic breakfast for two delivered to your door to enjoy in the privacy of your cottage. You can opt out of breakfast if you want by letting us know and it will be deducted from your fees. Breakfast choices depend on what is in season but generally you can choose from a freshly baked French baguette with either Brie or Dutch Gouda, an egg Fritata with fresh garden vegetables, and a seasonal fruit and orange juice. Other options can be discussed - we aim to fill you up with something healthy to start your day. No need to guess or read labels, we have done that for you! Peace of mind at last!

You will love the view of the deer and sheep from your window, or while enjoying some porch moments. The Cottage is part of Mulberry Lavender Farm ( in the quaint town of Mulberry, with a rich history all its own).

Amenities include a full bathroom with a large soaking tub, and separate shower. There was no WIFI in 1860 and there is none now unless your phone provides you with a hotspot. There is a small kitchen with refrigerator and coffee maker. A log hearth to keep away the chill.

The cottage is located on a working farm with livestock and wildlife, so caution and respect for the animals is required. There are dogs and cats on the premises, and although we love pets, any visiting pets are only accepted on an individual basis, after evaluating the risk they may pose to pets, free-ranging chickens, livestock, and the local wildlife.

The whole farm, including the house and grounds is a non-tobacco environment. This means no smoking, no smokeless tobacco (chew), nor vaping. Tobacco puts the lavender at risk of being infected with TMV (Tobacco Mosaic Virus).

You can shop for homegrown lavender products, bronze art, and regional crafts in the farm store. Pure honey from the farm's bees, and Lavender Essential Oil, Navajo Churro Wool, and lots more. Your breakfast will include some of our culinary lavender products, straight from the farm (Herbes de Provence, Alderwood Smoked Seasalt with our Royal Velvet Lavender, and if available Lavender Honey).

About Anita Scheelings

Anita and Bob Scheelings, formerly owned and operated Skull Valley Lavender Farm in Arizona, and in 2016 started Mulberry Lavender Farm in Mulberry, TN. The couple and all the farm animals relocated to their new home on Mulberry Creek. The farm grows lavender, cut flowers, healthy veggies, and raises Navajo Churro Sheep, and Heritage Chickens.

Anita Scheelings purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Anita Scheelings chose Lynchburg

Tennessee is lush and beautiful and you will hardly find friendlier people anywhere. From the small farm in Arizona, we searched long for the right farm with the right attributes for diversified, restorative farming, and the right soil and climate for lavender, and truly feel we hit the jackpot with this beautiful historic farm in Lincoln County.

What makes this cottage unique

Jack Daniel's older brother Wiley used to own this farm. He was a Civil War veteran, surviving at least three of the main battles including Gettysburg. The farm is a haven for wildlife, and Mulberry Creek borders on the west - Almost any time of the day you can look up from whatever you are doing and see deer in the fields taking an interest in you. The horses and sheep are peacefully grazing on the lush pastures. The early settlers of this farm had the good sense to plant lots of nut trees, so we can enjoy gathering nuts like pecans, and walnuts. Old houses and old trees always make you wonder, what it has 'seen'. To see the rough saw marks in the real wood floorboards. Nothing being quite straight. It is all about character. For folks looking for just a bed in a hotel we are not the right place - If you are looking to unwind and enjoy the experience of farm life and a home that will speak to you - Come on over!!

Cute Countryside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

After touring the Jack Daniel Distillery, my husband and I arrived at the farm to check into the cabin on property. We opted to not stay in a nearby hotel as the cabin on this property was built and owned by Wylie Daniel, Jack's older brother. The owners, Bob and Anita, were very hospitable and we enjoyed talking with them. We were greeted by many animals as soon as we arrived: sheep, chickens, two dogs, a cat, a horse, geese, and a donkey. The cabin was cozy and we slept soundly; the claw foot tub was amazing and we were even able to brew coffee that morning in our "kitchen". Although we didn't stay in the actual B&B (farm house) we did take a tour and wow, you have to take a look inside at the craftsmanship. We highly recommend Mulberry Lavender Farm B&B!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review, Chris! We thoroughly enjoy having guests like you and Marli stay with us! Wiley Daniel actually built the house, and lived and farmed here his lifetime and for three generations. We have recently learned he distilled whiskey before Jack did and the farm was the location of the WB Daniel Distillery. Next time we hope you plan to stay longer!

Nature Break

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed the "unplugged" weekend, seeing deer and the farm's livestock right out the cottage windows was a special treat, and driving into town for Jack Daniel's tours and BBQ dinners. The breakfasts were amazing! I left with some lavender plants and soaps and sachets for friends - a win all around!

Great place to relax after touring Lynchburg

  • 5 of 5

The Lavender Farm is a wonderful respite from the rest of the world. The rooms are exquisite, the food amazing and you feel like a part of the farm family. Everything you need to relax is provided from a soaking tub to homemade lavender soaps on your pillow.The furnishing are museum quality and the history of the home is unique. If you want to enjoy a hidden gem, this is for you. Where else would you find sheep grazing among hundreds of lavender plants?

Owner's Response: Winter on the farm brings its challenges - especially with the occasional freezing temperatures outside - however, it is also a time for snuggling up by the fire, and just hanging out with a good book and nice views on the sheep and the deer in the open field, or to try your hand at an old board games from days gone by. Every season has its charms on the farm. Life is good on Mulberry Creek!
