|Log House Restaurant|
Over the 200 plus years, it has been added onto in a higgledy piggledy manner and is now an absolute warren of rooms and passageways and nooks and crannies. And it's a fabulous place. Most of the interior was such close quarters that I couldn't take any pictures with my lens. There was an atrium, brick floors, woodwork and all manner of whimsical decor.
The other end of this "booth" just inside the entrance faced a fireplace. That makes sense since it would trap the heat and make the eating place warmer. I'm sure there is a name for this arrangement, but I don't know what it is at the moment.
And I was transfixed by the dried roses in the light fixture.
As we were led to our table, I almost gasped. We were seated directly in front of a log cabin quilt that had to be at least 100 years old and it was hanging on the wall as decoration!! As a quilter, I was both pleased and appalled. I was pleased to see such a treasure, but appalled that it was being displayed in a way that allowed it to get dirty and be exposed to rough treatment.
After lunch, we were invited to wander the grounds and take as many pictures as we liked. We explored the whole place and it was made up of many small rooms, hallways and niches.
Then we went outside and I was in heaven. The entire garden was bursting with shrubs, flowers and statuary of some sort.

So, all I've got to say is that if you are ever near Wytheville, Virginia, go find the Log House Restaurant and see for yourself.
Y'all take care.
