The Wildflower features a large back porch with a swing and a glider and a small front porch with a rocking chair.

The Wildflower Cottage was built at the same time as the original Nicholson House and includes the same handmade bricks in the foundation that are found in the walls of the house. Famously known as “the Smokehouse”, back in the day before refrigeration, meat was salted and smoked to preserve it. The meat was hung from the rafters with bear grass and smoked with hickory for two to three days or longer. It’s now a comfy cozy suite with privacy and an amazing view of the natural spring.
