Erica and Daniel Lumpert
Erica, a New York Yankee, met Daniel, a Swiss National in 1988 in New York. Over the next 35 years they got married, raised twins, and enjoyed extensive traveling. Always in their dreams was the idea and desire to create a Bed and Breakfast encompassing a Modern Farmhouse Experience. Daniel retired from Global Logistics while Erica continued to be the face of a well-known Security company providing concierge security service for the film industry, warehousing, events, boutique hotels etc. But the lure of their dream persisted.
Following the dream…
Daniel began exploring that dream by doing a 6-month Internship at a high-end, well-run Savannah B&B. He became even more excited to pursue this dream. The hunt for a property began in earnest in summer of 2021 in the Western North Carolina mountains. The day after Christmas in 2021 we found our dream property in Weaverville. Most particularly it was a 1990 Farmhouse situated on 16 acres of rolling hills, ponds, pastures, horses and serenity. Four months later the property became ours and 14 months later the house became an elegant modern farmhouse, with wrap-around porches and views to the surrounding pastures and mountains that perfectly deliver the message – breathe, relax and sleep well.
The Lumpert’s had more than a farmhouse dream, the vision included a working produce farm. A portion of the land is leased to a young Entrepreneur, Christian, whose goals and farming practices enhance the ambience of our Inn. The first harvest produced, lettuce, tomatoes, okra, radishes, beans, lemon cucumbers and a variety of herbs and flowers. We seek every day to incorporate the rich freshness of the season into the dishes we create. His commitment to the earth and ours to your sense of pampered indulgence begining each morning with the aromas from meal that gently rouse you from your sleep with an eagerness to start your day.
