When I first began telling my family that we were going to buy this place, they said, that it is a lovely dream but it is in the middle of nowhere. They said, it would be lonely. I told them I was fine with that after all my years of living as an international gypsy. What I have found though, is, they couldn’t have been more wrong. I am rarely lonely here. We have so very many guests. From day time visitors that are dear old friends just glad to have us back in the state, to family who stay a night here and there, to family from Finland who were just here for a month! In addition to all that, we have the dog trainer who comes to work with the dog weekly, fabulous neighbors on all sides, and every week for Cafe Primrose, I have a part time assistant out here. Then there are all the Bed and Breakfast guests….

Hi, Sorry, so much is going on, it has been a rough winter here with an unbelievable amount of snow….. Unreal actually…. Anyway, some of you, may have noticed the blog is yet again changing shape a bit. All the old stuff we used to do we are still doing! No worries! But as life changes so too does this blog.

The Wildflower B&B is the old colonial style farm house here at Wildflower Farm. It is a reconstruction of a house in olde Sturbridge Village commonly known as The Parsonage that dates back to the 1740s. Salt box in style it boasts a max of 2 available rooms for our guests and can be booked through AirBnB. This is where we finally chose to end our nomadic gypsy travels. Now, we open our home up to other nomad travelers, city folk looking for a little country charm, romantics seeking a get away, historians that want to feel the nostalgia of ages gone by, and of course those who just want a few days to hide away outside their normal life. I carried this dream with me for nearly a decade all over the world, and now I get to live in it and share it. This place has a special magic all it’s own and each day I am here, I sleep better and feel more alive and peaceful. Welcome to Wildflower B&B. I look forward to chronicling my adventures as a guest house and inn keeper.

We name our rooms after wildflowers, the larger of our two available rooms is called The Foxglove Room and boasts a queen bed, a dresser, a closet, and a chair all done in a rustic primitive colonial style to match the style of the rest of the house. A big thick comfy blanket, a comfortable mattress on a box spring complete the room. We make sure all our guest’s needs are met, in the private bathroom you will find hand soap and hand cream, a roll of paper towels, a soap dish, and a blow drier. We call our adorable, rustic little cutesy room that is great for child travelers or for traveling couples with an extra person in tow, The Periwinkle Room. The Periwinkle Room is lovely done with a shabby chic old fashioned looking bed spread, and a wood bed frame and mattress. It contains, a small area that is not high enough for adults but kids love to play in the little space. The Periwinkle Room is furnished with a dresser and a desk. We keep many rainy day activities for our child guests in here from paper, crayons, and colored pencils, to board games, card games, and books for all ages.
To book these rooms go to the airBnB site listed higher on this page, and book as 3 if you would like both of our guest room. If you just want the one book as a single guest or as 2 people. We are very family friendly here unlike most B&Bs we genuinely enjoy sharing our home with families. With the chickens and goats outside and the eggs to collect….. Makes this place a special and magical place for all age groups.
Great in all seasons! Designed by Cafe Primrose and photographed by Paul S. Robinson

Just the other day, we drove five minutes from our new home at Wildflower Farm, exploring the area, and we found ourselves at Berlin Orchards. We arrived and we could smell the apples. It was really cute. Great place to take kids cute little playhouses for them and a hay ride pulled by some sort of truck thing all the way to the orchards and if you thought you smelled the apples down near the parking lot….. When you actually reach the orchard, it is overwhelming. (more…)

It’s autumn here in orchard country. This area, gets the most amazing foliage. We wanted to share some photos of the autumn leaves. I love waking up in the morning to the smell of autumn fog and looking through it to see the leaves changing color. I also love the bright blue skied mornings when the air is dry and crisp and the autumn foliage plays with the sunshine, little yellow leaves sparkling as they fall from the trees to the ground. A perfect artistic statement made by the partnership of the gentle autumn breezes and gravity. (more…)

Well well well……… It felt like it took forever…. Our first chicken, the one we were convinced was a rooster, popped a few days back. Unfortunately our provider took us off line for a while for reasons I can’t even begin to understand, and this isn’t the first time either….. But now that we are back so much has been happening, that I wanted to share some of it. (more…)

Welcome to Wildflower Farm. This is not just our new home, it is also the new home of Cafe Primrose. It sits in a clearing surrounded by trees nearly 1000 feet from the nearest road. It is an old salt box colonial style, a reproduction inside and out of a home in old Sturbridge Village, known as the Parsonage. In one room on the first floor is where I do my Cafe Primrose work. That room doubles as a gift shop as well in addition to being my studio space, and is open by appointment. We went from super cramped quarters to a home so spacious we have more space than we need. So we have listed on AirBnB. Now we open our home and our beautiful 5 acre farm to travelers. Our way of continuing to travel without ever having to leave our farm. We know a lot about travel after so many years on the international highway. So now, we are supporting others as a stop on their adventure just as so many supported us in various ways on our own national and international adventures. (more…)

Wildflower Farm, is 5 acres of wonder. And we are making the most of it. We decided to get a few more chickens, and….. Then……….. We met these 2 and fell in love. We are preparing the shed to accommodate them right up beside the chickens. Their names are, Annabelle and Lone Star. Lone Star is still just a tiny little baby not quite ready yet to leave his momma. So we will wait and prepare everything for their arrival in what we hope will be about 2 weeks.
