1861 Farmhouse


Marisa always looks forward to spending her birthday in Boone.  Our tradition was dinner at Twigs,but this year we decided to try something different.

We settled on the 1861 Farmhouse, a wonderful Farm to Table restaurant/winery in Valle Crucis.  The place is outfitted in a very shabby chic style with mismatched furnishings, mismatched dinnerware and lovely lace curtains throughout.  One dining room is more charming than the next.  They serve salad from greens and veggies they grow in their own fields.
