Hermitage

hermitage exterior

Just behind the House of the Dove is a small stone building. It was originally a milk house, located near the barn, and provided a cool storage area for the milk and cream waiting to be taken to the local dairy. Some time after the Dove sisters had moved out of the house, it was renovated to add a small kitchenette and bathroom. Further renovations in 2015 resulted in a quaint place of retreat with a single bed, desk, lounge chair and plenty of natural light.
