Once a working farm, the outbuildings have been converted into rooms and "suites" with some distance and privacy from each other. Our room, the hackney suite, was spacious, impeccably clean with excellent linens and towels, a great king bed with just the right firmness, and a working gas fireplace. We chose to have a late lunch in Chads Ford and returned to Whitewing with a bottle of wine and picnic for supper later on. First we talked with Sandy about the history of the farm and then we went for a long walk around the grounds. The reception/check-in area is built on the original hay barn foundation and has a comfortable, welcoming feel with lots of natural light and great views. There are always snacks, homemade cookies, and goodies available here and any kind of hot beverage you want. It is well-stocked with china and stemware and you are free to take your choices to your room. We asked Sandy to find us a board game and returned to our room to enjoy the rest of the afternoon and evening with our gas fireplace and a nice bottle of wine. Although we had a neighbor next to us, we never heard a thing. It is very quiet at Whitwing at night. Next morning at the hay barn, we found a table for two by a window and Lance cooked and served us a very well- presented full breakfast. Lance has just the right personality for first thing in the morning chatter, and it becomes clear why he is a successful Chef and restaurant owner. Because of the layout and quality, Whitewing Farm is far different from most BBs. The setting is old but the rooms and conveniences are brand new. Add to this the personal charm and interest that Lance and Sandy show for each of their guests, and you know why Whitewing's ratings are so high. We will return soon.
