Duchess – 1 bedroom 1 bath

Wake up in the clouds. As white mist lifts, you’ll gaze over the pasture to the mountains. The calming sound of water falling into the ponds reminds you of the timeless nature of mountains and rivers, and the importance of taking time in your life to observe them. Since before the Civil War, the farmhouse on Woody Farm Drive has observed the passing of seasons, the flowing of rivers and morning birdsong. Now it offers it’s charm to you, providing southern hospitality and elegance through this timeless one bedroom cottage.  

Historical, elegant living greets you as you walk in the front door of Duchess’s cottage, with its traditional, classic style of luxury, from the massive king bed to the overstuffed furniture. Slip into an embroidered bamboo robe as you slip out of your private hot tub on the covered stone terrace. Curl up on the leather sofa to enjoy a cozy fire or a movie on the smart TV. This fully equipped and furnished cottage will make you feel as though your family had lived here for generations, too.

All the amenities that you expect from Barkwells are here, including a spacious fenced yard, dog door, dog bowls, private label therapeutic dog beds, washer/dryer, fireplace and fully equipped kitchen. But, the extras of granite countertops, a soaring cathedral ceiling, comfy bamboo robes and even comfier beds triple sheeted with the softest spa sheets will provide the ultimate in comfort and relaxation.
