Meadows Inn Photo Gallery
Just off the patio, this is our entrance. The curving stairway takes you to the upstairs guest rooms.
- Patio Garden
This is one of the garden areas adjoining our patio. This garden continues to evolve as do our other garden areas.
- Dining Room
This room provides a lovely setting for breakfast when we have a full house, or when the weather is not suitable for sitting outside. The room will comfortably accommodate 10 people, or more, for seating. The view from the dining room is of the meadow behind the house. Through the large windows, you may get to see deer, wild turkeys and a variety of birds and other wildlife common to our surroundings.
- Hosta Garden
Our developing hosta garden, located on the south side of our inn. We have more than 50 varieties of hosta!
- Fish Pond
Our goldfish pond, located on the south side of our Inn. If the racoons don't help themselves, we generally have 25-30 goldfish in the pond, all year long.
"The Meadows" has a wonderful patio widely used for relaxation after a long bike ride or other activity. This is a very popular place for our guests to gather to experience total relaxation. The patio is a great place to visit, read, watch the varied and plentiful birds, eat breakfast, or just relax.
- Chiminea on the Patio
In the late afternoon and evening, our guests greatly enjoy sitting outside by the lighted chiminea. The virtually mosquito-free environment makes it seem like camping (at a much greater comfort level, of course).
- Rebecca at the Well Fountain
From Genesis, Abraham, wanting a wife for his son, sent Eliezer to his homeland of Mesopotamia to find a wife. Tired from his journey, Eliezer stopped at a well to pray. When Rebecca offered water, Abraham saw the appointed bride and presented the betrothal jewels.
- Porthole to Rushford
This view from our patio shows Rushford covered with fog, a pretty common sight for us. This photo was taken in mid-July.
- MiniMag Seating Area
On the south side of our Inn, adjacent to our hosta garden, we have a quiet seating area. Named for Magelssen Bluff in Rushford, the lookout that offers a 440-foot valley view from above the town.
When we have less than a full house, breakfast is enjoyed here or on the patio. This is also where we place the afternoon treats and beverages. Large windows look out onto the patio, so you can enjoy the wonders of nature. On many cool mornings, we light the wood-burning fireplace.
- Upstairs Parlor
A gathering spot for our guests, this is where you can relax with a view through the large picture window, a great spot to watch our wildlife. At 7:00am, we deliver freshly ground coffee and a freshly baked morning snack for you to enjoy, while the hosts are busy preparing breakfast.
