The Main House is only available to host large groups and retreats when more accommodations are needed than the Guest House and Country Cottage can provide. It is a secluded three-story Country Victorian home with five uniquely decorated bedrooms that is hidden on our farm of 65 wooded acres.
At the ABBA we enjoy having church retreats, ladies or men's retreats, couples groups, small family reunions, and church or business planning groups. Maximum double occupancy at the Main House is 14; at the Guest House, 8 (including a queen sofa-bed); at the Country Cottage, 4 (including a queen sofa-bed). Please inquire about our "Retreat/Reunion" rates for groups with 16 or more people (maximum 26, double occupancy, including use of two sofa-beds).
The cozy front parlor has hand-carved daisies on the mantle of the wood-burning fireplace in remembrance of the daisies in the owners' wedding. Floral polished chintz sofas, curtains of lace, tapestry chairs and living ivies bring warmth to guests in any season. An antique wooden chess table provides a reminder of the enjoyment that games bring to our lives. A large entry hall with two sets of double French doors separates the parlor from the formal dining room. Group guests enjoy the variety of hearty country breakfasts served with homemade rolls in the dining room every morning.
A large split-level, fenced deck along the back of the house surrounds a swimming pool and hot tub. Whether sitting on the deck enjoying the view of the beautiful meadow and trees, swimming in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub watching shooting stars, you will come away refreshed and relaxed.
King's Court is a lovely, regal room richly decorated in traditional style with deep tones and textures. Velvet swags are draped over striped mesh sheer curtains, accenting the King sized-bed centered among the five windows of this kingly room. Two comfortable chairs allow guests to have cozy conversation or the TV/ VCR/DVD/SAT will play entertainment late into the evening. A luxurious, two-person Jacuzzi tub in the private bathroom finalizes any romantic evening before you fall asleep in this secluded room.
The "Tree Top" Suite is a very large 700 square foot suite encompassing the entire third floor and is decorated with antiques and international treasures from our time living overseas. The ambience of an electric fireplace with an Oak finish Mantel adds a warm glow to your stay. The suite has two sitting areas, a TV/VCR/DVD with satellite connections and a coffee bar area with small microwave, mini-refrigerator and coffee maker. A "turret" room with six large windows gives a breathtaking view of the woods at "Tree Top" level. There is a queen-size bed in one corner window alcove and two futon couches in two other window alcoves that make into double beds. The suite is ideal for a couple wanting a private romantic getaway or friends who want to share a room. The suite has a large, private bathroom with shower only.
"Room with a View" is romantic in style with comforting rose colors, garden florals, and an old-fashioned tin-look ceiling. Six large lace-covered bay windows surrounding a beautiful queen size bed provide a lovely view of the woods. A wood-burning fireplace adds intimacy to the room while hats of old, the owner's hand-made wedding dress and antique pictures bring character from days long past. There is a full, private bathroom.
The "Canopy Room" is graciously inviting with a queen-size, golden maple canopy bed that is accented with a matching antique maple dresser. The Maple finish Mantel with an electric fireplace adds warmth and glow to this charming room. Rose-colored glass-beaded lamps sit on specialty end tables giving a soft glow to the floral wallpaper and the finishing touches of this romantic room. A brass- studded trunk from Kuwait sits between two over-stuffed lounging chairs and a footstool for the ultimate relaxation. It has a full, private bathroom.
"Cowboy Quarters" is a Texas fun and fanciful favorite with bandana curtains hanging from "singletree" curtain rods and red bandanas bordering over blue plank wainscot walls. A colorful red and navy quilted bedspread accents a handmade queen size wrought-iron bed with the state of Texas centered between horseshoes on the head- and foot-boards. Relax with a good book or conversation in the custom-made willow loveseat or wrought-iron padded chair as you enjoy the glow and warmth from the electric fireplace. There is a full, private bathroom.
