if you live in the charlotte area or ever visit this area you MUST check out one of our favorite little getaway spots! right up the road from our farm is a beautiful place called kilburnie. as you wind down the country road and approach craig farm you will immediately be captivated. the first time i saw it i wanted to hop out of my car, roll around on the thick carpet of perfectly manicured grass, run down the flower lined trails into the woods and retreat there for a week (or until someone came looking for me). i still think i might try that.
joey and i spent a couple of days at kilburnie - the inn at craig farm - this past august and i have been dreaming about going back ever since. we've visited a lot of bed and breakfasts all over the country but this is one of my very favorites.
our host - johannes - the gracious innkeeper at kilburnie - was delightful. in my opinion he maintained the perfect balance of being attentive and friendly while also giving us privacy and a chance to truly get away from our regular hurried lives.
the history at kilburnie is rich and johannes can share some amazing stories with you (and also cook up a really mean southern breakfast...yum!). if you ask 'pretty please' he will also load you on the golf cart and take you on a tour of the entire property and even let you sneak a peek of his own beautiful place across the road...a gorgeous home that is the perfect marriage of old south country charm and big city glamour (he used to be a high profile chef in new york city!).
if you need rest for your soul in a setting that truly inspires visit kilburnie...and let me know what you love about it!
