You don't see this every day
Have you ever seen a hummingbird moth? Just sit on our courtyard with a relaxing view of the gardens and lake.
Keep your eyes peeled and you can see a hummingbird moth. Some guests think it is a hummingbird but if you look close
it is smaller and different colors.
Gardens at my Lake Home
Not only lake side with many amenities at our inn. One of the extra features of this bed and breakfast is all of our
different gardens we take great pride in. I work very hard with the gardens, lawn care and up keep of the inn. Not to
mention canning and hunting this time of year I have to stay busy to keep my body moving with my osteonecrosis. My biggest
pride and joy is the vegetable garden all planted from seed, planned and cared for by myself. Flower gardens are all
over the property and I designed and lovingly cared for each one. The mushroom garden is something you most likely won't
see anywhere else. I inoculate logs with shitake spores and produces my
own mushroom. This is a huge job and takes a lot of attention and timing.
I guess the north land is the target area this summer. Just about every small town and city south of us and including
us have been hit but one storm or another. There have been 4 storms in the past 5 weeks that have devastated surrounding
communities. Then there is E. Dixon Lake Rd where a small but fierce wind came in and went right thru just part of the
peninsula we live on. From my corn patch which was knocked down for the 2nd time in 2 weeks to 2 doors down where a
camper was flipped completely upside down and in between where about 40 some trees came down. My husband & I spent
hours cleaning up the drive way so neighbors and guest can get thru. We consider ourselves lucky compared to other places
where homes, cars, businesses and people were injured in the storms.
Lake side Bed and breakfast
Breakfast is served in a lovely lake side setting, an elegantly decorated table with the water fountains soothing sounds and
soft music. The 4 course breakfast is always hearty, unique and gourmet. The 2nd story lake views are stunning
with the birds feeding high in the unique bird feeding system in the trees.
The B&B faces west with all glass frontage on 2 levels. Each evening our view of the sunset represents a different scene.
Always beautiful in it's own way, with colors from bright orange with red accents turning the water purple to soft cloudy
blue with a tint of orange underlay. Come and see our sunset!
