The Inn at Little Pond Farm, NC: Weekend Getaway

A few weeks ago, Nathan and I were finally able to get away for our two year anniversary. I loved that we got married in October, however, I didn’t quite think this thing through since October is one of the busiest times for weddings and portrait sessions. Every year I end up working on our anniversary weekend. Oh well. I love October and would rather be shooting when the weather is nice. It makes my job that much more fun! Honestly, if we keep celebrating at places like the Inn at Little Pond Farm, I’ll wait five extra weeks every year because this place was SO impressive. I felt like I was living in a magazine spread! The couple who owns the inn built and decorated everything themselves! The woodwork and detail that they put into this place was beyond believable! It took them eight years! After hearing their story, it made me appreciate the fruits of their labor so much more. They put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this dream house. After being warmly

greeted, we were invited downstairs for some wine and hors d’oeuvres. Everything was delicious and plated beautifully. For all those food enthusiasts out there, the owners also provide cooking demonstrations and classes. These can be part of your overnight package or you can participate as a fun afternoon activity. Either way, it will be fabulous and worth the extra money. There are no cutting corners with these owners. After having a lovely happy hour, Nathan and I headed downtown to a small, european style restaurant called Vidalia. The reason I call it european style is because it was quaint with the next table over being a foot away. I consider myself to be somewhat claustrophobic but the atmosphere does not lend itself to the hustle and bustle of chain restaurants or to where you feel like people are spilling over on to your table. It was simply chic and cozy with great food. Anyhow, minus the restaurant, here are a few pictures to detail our stay:

Each room key had a tassle as a key chain. Details, details!

I loved the furniture in this house! The house was Provence inspired.  I love the french country look.  It’s rustic yet chic.  I told Nathan this is our style since he’s outdoorsy and I’m such a priss.  Most of the furniture was brought back from France by the owner. However, Revival in Chattanooga has some similar pieces.

Our room with luxury linens!

Our bathroom! There was actually a glass shower as well but it is not pictured here.  As a side story, as I was taking a bath the next morning, a few deer were meandering around the grounds behind the house in the golden sunlight.  I make it a tradition to take a morning bubble bath at places like these because I always see the most beautiful scenes.  At the last B&B, there had been a snowfall during the night and I got to see white sheep walking through the white snow while taking my bath.  Cool, huh?

Sea salts and bubble bath provided, along with some excellent reading material . . .

The stairwell up to our room. I was very excited to learn that the inn is also a venue for weddings! Oh my! Talk about having a picture perfect wedding!

Plenty of awesome books to read in the common areas that will get your creative juices flowing . . .

And last but not least, a little breakfast . . . So thankful to have a husband that enjoys these B&Bs like I do! Yay for two years!

    Lori, these are gorgeous, just like all of your pictures! I can imagine that this inn would pay for these photos so they can use them for advertising. They make it look so cozy and quaint and the perfect place for a getaway!
