Winter's Back!

Remember our last post from two weeks ago? We were excited about what seemed to have been spring's arrival and all the delightful flowers that come with it.
If you live in the NoVa area you know how unpredictable the weather has been lately, which is exactly why today we found all our beautiful daffodils, crocuses, forsythias, hyacinths, snowdrops, and anemones covered in snow.

Our guests enjoyed the view from our front porch, and some even ventured into the hot tub before enjoying a leisurely breakfast in the main house kitchen.

What do you like to do on snow days?

Spring is Almost Here

We have some exciting things to share as we are gearing up for wedding season 2013: the snow and cold have finally made room for all of our thousands of bulbs and we can't wait for the hyacinths, daffodils, and tulips to make an appearance! Our pool is almost open for the season, the stained concrete floors in the Fox Den have been refinished, the construction for our new 4-bedroom cottage has begun, and we are busy making plans for the landscaping of the grounds.

In the midst of all the excitement we have also welcomed our newest staff member, Tricia, who will be introduced here soon. She has joined us at the beginning of the year, and we are very happy to have her on board.

Keep coming back for more updates and exciting announcements!
