The Purple Thistle Bed & Breakfast - History
The Purple Thistle's StoryThere once was a house
where a family lived,
A Mom, a Dad and a couple of kids.
The kids grew up
which left Mom and Dad,
many years later the old house grew sad.
Abandoned for better,
considered "storage" by all,
the "memories" however, were retained by the walls.
With windows now broken
and absolute abuse,
the little old house longed for use.
A treasure I've found, please let it be mine!
It's the house that I've longed for...
for such a long time.
The story of the move
is unique in itself,
To God give the glory, for He did it Himself.
With much toil and labor
the walls talked to me,
Longing to tell the story, of the old family tree.
With each day of labor
the cabin evolved,
To become a welcoming refuge, now loved by all.
To our guests,
we hope you've been touched,
By this little house, given to us.
