established in 2017
My husband and I visited Carmel CA in 2013, and we fell in love with the Fairy Tale homes built by Hugh Comstock in the 1920’s. We decided to sell our house, and pursue our dream to find a beautiful place to bring this whimsical architecture to Middle Tennessee.
The Hansel House in Carmel-By-The-Sea was our favorite home, and Hugh Comstock's most famous fairy tale home, so we built a replica from the 1920 blue prints we obtained from the history library in Carmel. We doubled the size of the home but tried to stay true to the architecture of Hugh Comstock and built our own Hansel & Gretel Cottage.
We also designed and built our Sleeping Beauty Cottage, again staying true to Hugh Comstock's architecture, but creating our own whimsical fairytale house.
Our dream was to design a place that would take people back to a simpler time where they could get away from the stresses of everyday life! A magical, unique place filled with fairytale cottages, beautiful gardens, and amazing views! Spend time enjoying the 25 acres, star gazing at night, swinging in our swing gardens, enjoying a cup of coffee on the cafe patio or a glass of wine on the back deck. No worries and no deadlines!
This has been an incredible journey for us and we are so grateful for the support, help and encouragement that we have received from our five children, Ryan, Jeffrey, Christina, Will and Sam. They have all contributed to the success of this venue, and they have all sacrificed so much to help us make this happen! We are so grateful and proud of all of you!
We have also be graced with the help of so many people, that thought we had lost our mind, but stood by our side anyway. The people that started out as contractors quickly became friends, and we are grateful they stuck with us in the freezing winter through the blazing heat of the summer to get these houses built!
It has been a labor of love for us, and we have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world who have come to see and watch our "dream" come true! We are grateful for all the people in our lives that inspired us to pursue our dreams and not quit.
This journey has only just begun, and we have amazing plans to further build this venue into an even more magical place for everyone to enjoy!
We have recently added a beautiful deck overlooking the river valley, and we will continue to add new and unique structures, amenities and experiences over the next few years.
We look forward to your stay.
