Lover's Leap Birdhouses is located on a pretty significant curve on the mountain making it difficult to turn in and pull out. But knowing there were birdhouses awaiting inside, we managed to safely arrive in the parking lot.
We learned the shop has online cameras set up showing the scenic mountain views, the parking lot to alert the owner of customers arriving, the feeder area in back to record any bears approaching, the road heading up the mountain, and the road going back down the mountain.
We thought it'd be fun to call the family back home and tell them to check the internet and see us waving at them from the parking lot! They never could connect and find us though...oh well.
The shop has a limited shopping area with both smaller and larger birdhouses filling the shelves. Granny told me to pick out one to bring home, and I picked the small green one on the far right. I think she's keeping it for a gift because I haven't seen it since!
The owner and birdhouse maker himself told us that his birdhouses have found their way all around the world--over 30,000 of them! Visitors from all 50 states and 26 different countries have passed by their little shop. And I'm wondering how in the world they found this place! Have you ever been to Lover's Leap?
Next stop: a little country gift shop that advertised Hungry Hillbilly sandwiches and Possum Pie! We just browsed through and didn't eat here...so I can't tell you whether or not to order the Possum Pie if you visit!
Also on the agenda while we were out was Nancy's Candy Company:
Hannah and I checked out the various fudges so we could tell Sarah some new flavors to possibly offer at Farmer's Market. The shop had so many delicious sounding ones...Strawberry Cheesecake, Snickers, Grasshopper, Chocolate Explosion, Key Lime, and Peanut Butter Chocolate.
