We wanted to create a relaxing place to just take a time out from the fast pace life we all live and reset our minds just like the electronic devices we use need to be reset from time to time. What better way than to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee in our relaxed shop and enjoy watching the birds feed at one of our multiple feeding stations!

Previous owners of the property included Colonel Edward Carrington, who fought alongside General Nathaniel Greene in the Revolutionary War.

Staunton River State Park takes its name from the river that borders the park, named for Captain Henry Staunton who, before the Revolutionary War, commanded a company of soldiers to protect early settlers from Indian attacks. This section of the Dan River became known as Captain Staunton’s River and later, Staunton River. Forty years later, when the river became an important means of transporting tobacco, many large plantations were built in the area, most of which were destroyed during the Civil War. From 1933 to 1935, a unit of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built most of the buildings and facilities that are still seen today at the park.

Martinsville Speedway’s 2006 season marks the track’s 59th year of operation. Founded by H. Clay Earles the year before NASCAR was formed, Martinsville Speedway is one of the oldest tracks in America that’s still a part of the Nextel Cup series. Beginning in 1947 with 750 seats, it is the only original NASCAR-sanctioned track still running Nextel Cup events. Richard Petty, now a car owner, holds the track’s winning record with 15 victories. Although it is the shortest track on the NASCAR circuit, the 800 foot straights, coupled with turns banked at only 12 degrees, makes the track perform like “two drag strips with a turnaround on each end.” The demanding layout consistently produces some of the wildest fender scrubbing and push and shove racing on the tour.
