Proprietors Deb and Ken

Meadowsweet is an 1895 farmhouse built by Scottish immigrant Joe Campbell. Joe built the house from American chestnut and oak from the property.  He built the hearth in the parlor from local soapstone that he mined.  Surrounded by lovely gardens with a mountain stream in the backyard flowing into the pond, the serenity and peace will put one at ease.



As an Inn and Guest Lodging House you will enjoy a serene mountain landscape in a peaceful beautiful setting.


Feel free to sit in the garden house or on its porch and enjoy the fountain or gaze at the butterflies. Stroll through the gardens and rest in the shade by the stream or simply by the pond and meditate.
