Cabin
The cabin at Three Pines Farm is rich in history. The logs that compose it were hewn in the 1790s by Captain Phillip Buckner, a Revolutionary War veteran. Throughout the 1800s it housed Morford's tavern and inn, with many guests arriving by stagecoach. Despite its long history, the cabin is well-suited to the modern guest. It consists of three floors. Upstairs it boasts the Buckner and Morford Bedrooms, containing a queen and twin bed respectively. A bathroom with a shower/bath adjoins the Morford Room. The middle/ground floor is where guests enter the cabin. Captain Buckner entertained his guests in this space with lavish feasts.

Though the basement was not part of the original cabin, it flows seamlessly into the modern layout. It includes the Pine Bedroom (queen bed), the den (futon convertible to a double bed), and a bathroom containing a shower. It is a walk-out basement, with a patio space behind the cabin. We like to think that we are carrying on the tradition of Buckner and Morford today as we open the door of this historic cabin to you. The rental includes approximately 17 acres of land, some of which is forest. More

Did not want to leave the cabin was everything and more may have to go again next year. Little bit out of the way, but well worth the trip.
