I had a dream…

Ten years ago I had a dream to bring this home back into the family and that is how Country Heritage got its name.  It’s only fitting that my husband and I both grew up on farms and we wanted to give other people the opportunity to enjoy a little piece of history.  It is amazing that so many Borcherdings have had the opportunity to enjoy this home from generation to generation. I enjoy sitting in the gazebo in the late afternoon and listening to the trees or sit and read a book with a glass of wine or lemonade.

We have started landscaping and we put in a little pond but we still need to add the tire swing and we would love to start the garden up again just like Ed and Ressie had. One year my daughter decided to have chickens and one was a rooster.  I remember one guest saying he enjoyed waking up to the rooster crowing and it brought back great memories of his childhood. Even if it was at 6:00 o’clock in the morning. Sadly to say we no longer have the rooster.

The firepit is another great asset. We have had families sit outside at night roasting marshmallows over the open fire and telling stories as well as star gazing and watching the fire flies.


Every once in awhile we even have barn yard friends stay with us.  Do you remember Arnold the pig in Green Acres?  We have not had a pig but we have had two calves and as I said earlier chickens. These are just a few things that you can enjoy while staying with us and we have many new ideas that we are considering. Some that even guest can help with. Whether you are a frequent bed and breakfast visitor or this is a new adventure for you Rex, Donnis, Lacey (and her husband Blair and son Michael Elphic) and Ranae Borcherding would like to invite you to stay with us and become a part of our family.
