This farm has been in my family since Thomas Jefferson was president.  I began management of the farm in 1980 and remodeled an old farmhouse into a guest house for a family or for couples to find an escape from the chaos of city life and the modern world generally. The house sits on a gated, 10 acre wildlife preserve, beside a 3 acre pond,  which adjoins our 100 acres of fields and forest.  Our entire farm is in a conservation easement so it can never be developed, and we are one of the few private properties on the NC Wildlife Resources Commission "Birding Trail"; we have documented over 100 species of birds here in different seasons of the year. Our pond, private for guest house users, offers good fishing and we provide a boat. We also have over 2 miles of walking trails through our woodland and along the pond. Although we permit no outdoor fires, we do have a fireplace in the house and furnish free, seasoned firewood. We grow organic vegetables, alliums, and fresh herbs, along with a great many flowers to attract pollinators. Because some of our guests are allergic to pet dander,  and because pets often frighten the wildlife away, we do not accept any pets here, nor do we own any ourselves. Learn more about this land: We offer a two bedroom private guest house with central heat and air, situated in a 10 acre, gated wildlife preserve which adjoins our 100 acre farm and which overlooks a private fishing pond (with boat).  We promise no TV, radio, newspaper, telephone or internet connection, but do have a small library in the house.  For the convenience of the ladies, the kitchen has no stove but does have a large, sheltered smoker/grill (charcoal provided) on a covered patio beside the kitchen, a full power microwave, and all other kitchen amenities, including a French press with a bean grinder and electric kettle; we also provide our own blend of fresh roasted coffee beans as well as tea, herb tea, chocolate and popcorn. The bathroom has a large claw footed tub and we provide bath salts and fresh organic herbs for the bath. There is a working fireplace and we provide seasoned hardwood for it. Guests may enjoy  our farm which offers about two miles of woodland trails and abundant wildlife and birds but no domestic animals. NO pets are permitted at the guest house because many guests have allergies to animal dander. In short, it is a place for individuals, couples and families to find ease, to enjoy a bit of peace, quiet, and privacy and to  go home refreshed, restored, relaxed. The house is so private it has a shower on the screened porch overlooking the pond. We are a little over an hour from historic Wilmington and several beach resorts, only 30 minutes from Fayetteville with museums, a fine botanical garden, and Fort Bragg, and very close to both I-95 and I-40 interstate highways. We are an hour south of the state capital city, Raleigh, with many attractions. TEMPORARY RESTRICTION:  For the safety of our guests and ourselves, we request that those who have not completed their pandemic vaccines please finish these immunizations before requesting a reservation. Because we try to keep our guest house toxin free for those of our guests who have compromised immune systems and chemical allergies, because we ourselves are older adults with compromised systems, and because we are in a pandemic hot spot, we prefer not to host unprotected travelers until the pandemic ends.  We regret the necessity to do this, but believe we can best protect the health and safety of our guests, ourselves, and our friends by this policy.  Get your shots; save lives; end this awful pandemic.We offer a two bedroom private guest house with central heat and air, situated in a 10 acre, gated wildlife preserve which adjoins our 100 acre farm and which overlooks a private fishing pond (with boat).  We promise no TV, radio, newspaper, telephone or internet connection, but do have a small library in the house.  For the convenience of the ladies, the kitchen has no stove but does have a large, sheltered smoker/grill (charcoal provided) on a covered patio beside the kitchen, a full power microwave, and all other kitchen amenities, including a French press with a bean grinder and electric kettle; we also provide our own blend of fresh roasted coffee beans as well as tea, herb tea, chocolate and popcorn.

Thomas was a superb host. Went out of his way to ensure the experience of his guests and cater to their needs. His land was so peaceful. We will definitely be back again to see him and enjoy ourselves on his off the grid property.

Charming Historic Cabin Oasis
This place was a rustic lover's dream. There are all sorts of ideas out there about what one might consider comfortable, and to me, this was perfect. Would it possibly be nice to have a stove? Sure, but for a weekend trip this place has all you need to disconnect and relax. Bring your favorite book, lots of snacks, something to grill and sit back to enjoy the sweet lull of birdsong. If you like walking, going for a paddle, just sitting outside, reading by the roaring fire, clawfoot tubs or stargazing, this is your cup of tea. Plus, Thomas is endearing in the best way for a host.

What a cozy and peaceful cabin! We live about 1.5 hours away and really enjoyed disconnecting from our busy week without having to drive 5 hours away. The space was clean and had everything we needed for a great night in. If you can, stay for the whole weekend to enjoy it even more!

Beautiful remote location away from it all! Very hospitable host and very well stocked with amenities. Just no oven/stove. But we grilled our pizza on the charcoal grill and it turned out pretty darn good

Perfect Getaway
The property was so peaceful, and Mr. Jackson was such a gracious host. My husband and I booked his guest house for our first weekend getaway in years, and I wish that we had stayed for more than just a weekend. It was a perfect weekend--sitting by the fireplace, walking the trails, and watching the birds and squirrels on the porch in the morning. We never left the property because we had everything that we needed there. We will definitely return!
