About us

The nearly 25-acre farm, bed & breakfast and wedding destination in Jonesborough, TN is picture perfect from the pond at the foot of the long gravel driveway to the 3-acre woods. In 1992 when Diane and John Vogt and Diane’s parents bought the land, it was not a pretty sight (or site). Brambles and honeysuckle chocked the entire property. Nothing of value could flourish beneath the strangling vines, so the Vogts set about to change things. In 1994 they moved in and began landscaping the two houses….


The Vogts have rescued, recycled, and repurposed most of the building and landscaping materials that went into their house and gardens.


Other resources have come from places like “Habitat for Humanity” stores or Craigslist, where they adopted rescued chickens. Many of their art pieces are from family history or their travels. Due to the nature of acquiring legacy plants, animals, décor, and materials over the years they, too,  have a story of their own.

Johnson City Press


The B&B opened its doors in 2011, and in the past 7 years has enjoyed getting to host thousands of visitors from all over the country and world.
