In 1986, Diana Carl and her late husband, Captain Bob, designed and built a lovely country home with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Lawsonville, North Carolina, near Hanging Rock State Park. They named it Southwyck Farm, after Southwick H. Carl born May 3, 1826 in England. When Diana travels she brings home art works from the countries she visits around the world. You are invited to take a stroll on trails that roam 38 acres of rolling countryside, or fish in the well-stocked bass pond, sit on the porch or patio and enjoy a snack, conversation, or read. An Austrian Shepherd and a Border Collie may greet you when you arrive. They think guests only come to visit them. Deer often graze in the yard and eat from the persimmon trees. Enjoy a complimentary beverage while relaxing by the fireplace in the large living room or the cozy library, upstairs, which overlooks the woods and distant mountains. Relax with books, magazines, games, television, a DVD and CD player, Wi-Fi or just enjoy some free time!
