Planter at Chicken Coop!!
We have just added a new planter to the outside of the solar powered chicken coop! This planter is constructed from railroad ties. We filled the planter with heated manure (from our barn animals) to grow the plants in. Heating manure is letting the Sun burn Nitrogen from the manure to make a cheap and ecologically sustainable fertilizer. We have planted vegetables, herbs, and flowers. They include: Corn, Onion, Oregano, Dill, Pineapple Sage, Sage, Marigolds, +.
“Our House” porch now features an antique metal glider. This glider is approximately 70 years old and came from Frank’s childhood home. (Frank is co-owner and manager of The Cove at Fairview). We have grinded off two coats of paint and polyurethaned this piece of furniture. This antique has a contemporary flair, blending tradition with modern. Frank has many great memories of sitting on the glider and we hope you will as well!
New Chicken Coop
We have a new chicken coop! This small coop sits on a hillside by the barn and is surrounded by Zinnias and Marigolds. The coop is primarily used to raise baby chicks. This new coop has 4 nesting boxes, a ramp, and a perch. We also have put a flower pot filled with dirt inside of the coop so that the young hens will learn to take a dust bath. Chickens take dust baths in order to stay clean and healthy.
Relax in a Hammock!
We have just added 4 Eno Hammocks to the Cove at Fairview! Listen to the sound of waterfalls as you relax in one of our 2 Eno Hammocks at Koi Falls! These Hammocks are a great place to relax in the shade and renew yourself in the tranquility of nature.
Also, climb the steps on Flower Hill to relax in 2 more new Hammocks. Enjoy an Eastward View of the gentle mountains and the vast blue sky from the comfort of these 2 new Hammocks.
New Windows at Prayer Ridge!!
We have 8 new weather durable windows at Prayer Ridge. The kitchen nook and the upstairs loft both have four new windows with screens. These screens allow guests to open up windows to enjoy a cool mountain breeze. This home is passive solar and window shades can be lowered to help cool the house or raised to heat the home. This works because the home faces South West and there are many windows in the house. Enjoy the tranquility of nature at this Passive Solar Home!
New Porch Cushions at the Garden Cabin!!
We have recently added new porch cushions to the Garden Cabin. These striped cushions with muted greens add a look of natural elegance to the porch. The porch has a wicker type table for two – perfect for a romantic meal under the stars. There are also two metal chairs and a metal loveseat. The porch also features a private hot tub and a propane & charcoal grill (propane and charcoal provided).
New Furniture at “Our House”
We have recently added some lovely new furniture to “Our House.” The one cushion sofa is turquoise and is perfect for napping. The two chairs have stripes of turquoise embedded in stripes of muted grays. The area rug has a turquoise and brown design, accenting both the new furniture and our handmade wormy chestnut furniture.
Refinished Porch Furniture!!
Enjoy this 50+ mile view from the comfort of these Cedar Adirondack chairs. Prayer Ridge features four of these chairs on the wrap-around deck. We have just applied polyurethane to these chairs to seal them for the weather and to give them a nice fresh look. This is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or to unwind after a day of sightseeing!
My Roundette Secret Garden!
Prepare to be enchanted! “My Roundette” features a semi-private garden that is nothing less than magical. Tall Phlox, Roses, and Comfrey captivate the eye. Emerald Green Arborvitaes, a Purple Leaf Plum, and a Fig Tree provide shade and privacy. The garden is surrounded by a wigwam fence made from Locust Wood. Enjoy the beauty of this garden while sitting on a red metal bench.
Please enjoy this aerial view of a piece of The Cove at Fairview that was taken by a drone. On the bottom left is the barn, on the middle right is My Roundette, above that is the Garden Cabin, and on the top right is Our House. My Place (not pictured) is just up the mountain. These homes are nestled in our lovely mountain cove!
