Here’s the place I mentioned last week. I’m almost hesitant to blahg about it as it’s so cool and I want to be able to stay there whenever I have the whim. But, because I love you all and I know you can keep a secret, I’ll share. Promise me you wont tell the rest of the internet, k?
Located in the not too thrilling area of Brandon, FL, just 2 mins off a typical street littered with the usual eye numbing gas stations and strip malls is a time portal. “No way”, you say? I say, “Way!”
Behind the Fence is a bed and breakfast like no other, at least not in this area. It’s nestled, well…behind a fence, in a wooded area and hosts two cabins and a main house. For about 90 bucks you get your own cabin for the night, a lagoon style swimming pool and in the morning yummy Amish sweet rolls and great conversation with the charming proprietor, Carolyn.
I can’t recommend this place highly enough. She and her husband put a lot of heart into the place and want you to feel transported to the 1700s. Did I mention it’s a little on the spooky side, especially if you arrive during a torrential storm in the dead of night. 🙂
Here’s some pics. I’m out.
