About Buckswood


We decided to open our home to guests about 25 years ago and during those years have met many wonderful and interesting people - some remain friends today.

Our house dates back to the early 1800’s and has many unique features and quirks making up its personality.  For instance, the upstairs doors and door frames are painted in a medium called graining which is done with a comb and made to look like wood grain.  One of the doors is signed and dated April 16, 1875.  If you look closely you will find faces and figures incorporated in this graining.  Three rooms have the original hand-hewn beams and of course there are the wide board floors.

We offer two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and private bath, the other with a king bed with private half bath.  There is a formal living room, a television room, a sunny deck and large backyard - all for your use.  Close by are country dirt roads that are very enjoyable for quiet walk or bike ride.  Mount Independence is only six miles away and has a very interesting museum, beautiful hiking paths and becomes a snowy wonderland in the winter.

Most guests just seem to fit in like family and that is the way we like it.  Based on comments, that’s the way they like it too.   Although we are small in the number of guest rooms, we like to believe we are large in hospitality.

The morning will start with a complete breakfast.   Dinner can be arranged by advance reservation.

We do accept pets who can keep their owners under control.  Our Airedale Abby loves to have company.

We look forward to your visit with us
