Cabin 1 on Mill Creek Construction – Feb 2016

Cabin 1 on Mill Creek construction days were marked by blue skies and tempertures in the teens! Jeff can work in all temps, the crazy heat and humidity back in Houston and now winter in Goshen. Thankfully the bitter cold and gusty winds are short lived. We are very happy to report our winter is mild with most days not having to wear multiple layers. When it snows, it doesn’t last.

Warm temps are always just around the corner.  Then, we have another beautiful snowfall here in the Shenandoah Valley and we are delighted again! Another cold spell and back to layers for a day or two, maybe three…all for the sake of getting it done! See more pictures here on the progress of Cabin 1.

Cabins on Mill Creek 2016 – New Year, New Plans

Cabins on Mill Creek 2016 got off to a great start! Exciting to see the Concrete Truck pull up at the Hummingbird Inn. New Year, New Plans to add cabins creekside on our lot adjacent to the Hummingbird Inn. We started with Cabin 1 in hopes to finish by July 2016. Our proximity to Mill Creek requires the cabins to be raised 5 feet and so we began by pouring concrete for the footings. Just in time! After the concrete was set, we received our first major snowfall (as new Inn owners), a beautiful 20+ inches of snow. By the way, it’s glorious to enjoy a snow storm with no driving commutes now that we work at home.  Living the dream…

Cabins on Mill Creek…Clearing Stones and Brick

Cabins on Mill Creek…featuring men and their toys! One could argue that clearing land of huge stones and chimney brick is extremely laborious.  Jeff says he’s taking care of business and Sandra says he’s having way too much fun!

First Night’s Stop on A Road Trip to Remember

We were thrilled to be mentioned in the February 2016 edition of Eastern Home & Travel magazine, as part of this terrific article “A Road Trip Like No Other” by Reed Hellman. The feature takes readers on a memorable drive along Route 39, the Appalachian Waters Scenic Byway , recommending that adventurers make the Town of Goshen and the Hummingbird Inn their first night’s stop on the journey because of its “…classic B&B accommodations: welcoming, homey, clean and comfortable, with a sumptuous breakfast and the added attraction of active train tracks just beyond the front drive.”

Winding 136 miles from Lexington, Va., west over the Allegheny Mountains to Summersville, W.Va., the byway, also known as Route 39, mixes sumptuous accommodations, natural hot springs, mountain traditions and a wealth of cultural attractions with hundreds of thousands of acres of public wildlands.

“This is one of the most globally significant forest biomes in the world,” said Marek Smith, executive director of The Nature Conservancy’s Allegheny Highlands Program. “It’s only rivaled in diversity by similar forests in China.”

There are so many reasons to visit this part of the Shenandoah Valley, but certainly a remarkable road trip packed with unrivaled natural wonders, history and cultural opportunities along every mile of way is one great travel experience you won’t want to miss. Road trip anyone?
