Meet the Innkeeper


See the latest Spotlight on us here. Blog posting and Pictures by Lindsey LaRue

Welcome to Mountain Laurel Farm.  I'm Melody the youngest daughter of Jerry and Shirley Lothridge and the operator of the Inn. I am the proud mother of my 19 year old daughter named Whitney. My family and I moved to the farm when I was just a little girl of three years old. Coming back to the farm as an adult has been very enlightening and given me a new prospective on this beautiful area and purpose.  I've had various experiences and have been so fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world...However,  I find Mountain Laurel Farm to be one of the prettiest... if not the most beautiful place on earth.  After visiting many Inns during my travels and speaking with the innkeepers (mostly retired couples)-I decided that I would really enjoy this line of work and opted to do it now rather than waiting until I retired.  The Farm Bed and Breakfast opened in the fall of 2014 and the best thing about being an innkeeper is the guests! I love meeting new and interesting people, (and seeing previous guests return), and I feel like I have made so many new friends since starting this business. I've discovered that B&B people are just the very best kind of people! 
I want to welcome you to come and share in our home and property and enjoy it as much as we have, as you get away from your own busy life. Come rest, relax and be pampered while you enjoy the good country life here At Mountain Laurel Farm. I hope you will enjoy your stay with us and I will do my best to make sure of it.
