Bright Morning Star Bed & Breakfast Really Shines

The guys will love this bed and breakfast because of its location out on the rural countryside. They can stretch their legs, pet the cows, or talk to the birds—they’ll listen!

The ladies will love this bed and breakfast because of the aesthetics. From fresh flowers that match the hand-sewn quilts, to the cozy sitting area awakened by a morning fire and bathed in natural light, oohs and aahs will be heard throughout the sprawling farmhouse.

Walls are painted in uplifting colors, and when the sun sets, the entire house is awash in blaze orange.

Bright Morning Star Bed and Breakfast is, in a word…beautiful.

Three Amish farms surround this country bed and breakfast located between Middlebury and Shipshewana. The house itself is built on three country acres where you can glance outside and see horses and buggies traveling on the country road, or view the owners’ pasture filled with cattle and horses. One neighbor might be plowing the fields while an Amish mother hangs laundry. Children will be riding their bikes and carrying their fishing poles.

Bright Morning Star, with a 900 square foot work area and lounge in the downstairs, provides an ideal spot for retreats. The owner says she has hosted numerous groups there, including quilt groups and scrapbooking groups. The downstairs room is also used as a gathering place when several couples come at once.

This bed and breakfast contains five bedrooms, each with a private bath, and offers a homemade country breakfast.

And while it’s located among the beautiful country backroads, it’s only a few minutes from the Shipshewana Flea Market and all the shopping a lady could want. The auction barns are nearby, too.

If you are weary from work and need respite for your soul, this is the place. Bright Morning Star will shine for a very long time in your memory.

Located at 0255 S 100 W, Middlebury, Indiana

Seedling Damping Off

  by Karen Weiland, Advanced Master Gardener     So you have selected the seeds, carefully planted them in their pots, watered them, kept them warm, watched them germinate and start their growing process and then, one by one, fall over, shrivel up and die.  This horticultural disease is called damping off.  It is caused …
