In addition to the 5 bed and breakfast rooms in our main Farmhouse, we also offer our one bedroom “Sugar Shack”, and efficiency “Applehouse”.


APPLEHOUSE

Our converted apple shed (separate listing) is the centerpiece of the farm with flowers and herbs all around. It used to house the picked apples from the orchard, but is now a rustic efficiency cabin known to us as the “Apple House''. It has a small simple kitchen, one king sized bed and a nice sized bathroom with a shower, and a newly built side covered porch and grill. The style is simple rustic of yesteryear and has hard wood floors. There is also satellite TV, internet access, and an uncovered front porch with wonderful sun!

COTTAGE

One of our 3 houses on the 32 acre property. The cottage has 1 bedroom with 2 queen size beds , and a large modern bathroom with a shower (and luxury heated floors!)
Our renovated modern/rustic cottage boasts a spacious living room with satellite TV, light filled modern kitchen/breakfast room (sub zero appliances and wolf range, beverage station, and a TV with Satellite as well as internet access). Sit and sip a cold sweet tea on the front porch and swing to your heart's content while overlooking the horse pasture and sunset. Around back and through the three glass kitchen doors is a large back terrace with a grill and outdoor living area.

SUGAR SHACK

The sugar shack cabin is a private oasis removed from the farmhouse and has everything you could ever need for a peaceful getaway. Laundry, kitchen, in-room tub, shower, and lavatory. Gorgeous views and complete privacy are to die for. Great for a romantic weekend, memorable honeymoon, or a writer's block remedy retreat.


MAIN RESIDENCE

Our main residence, “The Farmhouse” was the original caretakers’ house. This transformed Bed and Breakfast space offers four large, ensuite bedrooms- each with their own bath and climate control. Our two larger rooms in the Farmhouse offer soaking tubs, their own outdoor access, and sitting area.

The Farmhouse features morning coffee, a wonderful cooked to order five star breakfast, and an Afternoon “Sunset Hour” in our HEY Y'ALL lounge on Friday afternoons from 5:00-7:00, offering refreshments and locally loved cuisine/ hors d’oeuvres.

Lunch and Dinner upon request
(additional charge TBD)

The home incorporates all new interior with all new kitchen and baths. We are keeping the integrity of the home by reusing all of the original doors, moulding and bead board. We kept the original floorpan, while adding on a new laundry/mudroom area. We've extended the back porch to incorporate a spacious wrap around porch for relaxing and dining (and even yoga classes in warm weather)!

EXTRA INFORMATION

We started this project in 2009 when we bought the old “Poor Farm” in Waverly, Alabama, complete with an old log cabin “jail” which still has the original bars on it. We named the farm Shoofly Farm. (You can find us on google maps, finally!) The farm had TONS of history from many different eras that I desperately wanted to preserve. I knew if I started with the Farmhouse, we would settle in, and the remaining 11 buildings would wither away as I sipped mint juleps on the porch, so choosing to rebuild from the outside, it was essential. Now all of the buildings, except for two, have been brought back to life.

Although we want to welcome local guests for getaways, we’d like to also make it a Southern destination for travelers. Since we have traveled so much the past few years and living in Spain, we have met so many wonderful expats and Europeans who are very curious about Alabama and want to come explore our world and see what it means to be Southerner.

Locatie

Auburn, Alabama, Verenigde Staten

Shoofly Farm is beautifully situated close to 3 widely loved cities: Auburn, Opelika and Waverly. They each offer their own charm and adventure.

Auburn - Home of Auburn University, many restaurants with different experience and cuisine levels (a favorite is “The Depot”, an old train station turned restaurant), Chewacla State Park for an outdoor adventure, and an amazing downtown strip with lots of shopping and a booming nightlife.

Opelika - A unique Railroad town with a story to tell. With plenty of locally owned and operated shops, antique stores, restaurants and places to hang out, you’re sure to fall in love with the local “O-town” charms. Downtown Opelika is filled with history, and even offers a museum to visit and learn all about it.

Tiger Town is a mega shopping experience and outdoor mall tucked between Opelika and Auburn, that offers big name stores and restaurants for an all in one shopping experience.

Waverly- Home of the 280 Boogie, where musicians fill the streets, and thousands of spectators come to experience a real southern Boogie twice a year! There is a lovely restaurant/bar, the Waverly Local, that offers delicious food and amazing service.

Montgomery - The Alabama State Capital is about an hour away, and is a lovely day trip. There are museums, zoos and other historic sites you don’t want to miss if you’ve never been through the area.

Honorary Mentions : (can be completed either in the morning or afternoon)
Callaway Gardens is a 6,500 acre complex in Pine Mountain, Georgia about 40 minutes from Shoofly Farms. There is a butterfly habitat, restaurants, trails, and white sand beach around a 65 acre lake.

Wild Animal Safari- Pine Mountain Georgia wild animal safari is a great morning trip that takes you to a whole new world. Rent a jeep and ride through the park with the animals- a great day of fun!

My family came to Alabama in the 1700's and although I was born and raised in Alabama, I’ve lived a good many working years in New Jersey and a fun 5 years in Spain where I enjoyed watching my teenagers learn a different life as we met lifelong friends, discovered the world and had a ball! My favourite things are my family and friends, traveling, laughing, food, cocktail hours and my farm. After a long career in Music and having our 3 children, my husband and I decided to buy this farm. Little did we know our “poor farm” was going to be a bed and breakfast. We immediately started working on it bit by bit and now, after all the building and repairs, our 100 + year old farmhouse with tons of history is now finally completed and ready for its new life. Having traveled so much and gaining a love and deep appreciation for life’s differences, we wanted to share and bring a little of our experiences here. Come share your world with us with an open mind and heart and enjoy!

Tijdens je verblijf
Your privacy is important to us. We welcome anytime conversation and if you want to help on the farm and get your hands a dirty, "have at it", as we say! It's a great way to learn about farm life and our animals LOVE it! Although our little guys are sweet and love attention, they can get a little pushy so children 15 and under need to be supervised at all times around the animals.
