Wren Nest in Garage Dustpan
The garage door at The Birdnest Inn was left open for one day to allow carpenters to work in the shade. Two industrious wrens have built a nest in an old dustpan on a shelf next to the door. Now, the garage door needs to stay open several hours a day as they complete their task and raise a family!
Highlighting Original Works of Art
The Birdnest Inn is filled with original works of art. This is a cypress "boat" created by John Geldersma, one of the artists represented. Handmade creations are exhibited throughout the inn.
Our Bird Condo was installed yesterday by Scott Odom! We're waiting for the first winged beauties to move in. This coincided with the bearded iris putting on a show. These were planted ten months ago.
This new grouping of bird houses will be hung for our feathered friends at The Birdnest Inn! They will be put in place after the storms go through Aiken, SC today.

Pancakes made from blueberries grown on our property in a buttermilk pancake batter topped with pure Vermont Maple syrup!! The side of Cheese Grits, Nueske's bacon and fruit made perfect morning companions. Whole grain toast served with our homegrown and homemade jalapeno jam and blueberry jelly added a sweet finishing touch!!
