Your hosts, Lynda and Dan Ells.

Dan and Lynda Ells offer Butterfly Fields Bed & Breakfast to their guests as the home and farm they built for their family of eight children.  Butterfly Fields is an energy efficient, solar designed, super-insulated custom home.  Ten years in the construction, this hand-crafted home is truly a work of love with attention to detail.     
  With the surrounding gardens, decks, pastures, and livestock, Butterfly Fields offers to the discerning adult guest an opportunity to enjoy the sights and sounds of country living at the doorsteps of our nationís capital and the surrounding Chesapeake Bay region.

Our commitment to being stewards of the land is evident in our lifestyle practices.  We are a Maryland Green Travel Partner.  Click on the logo above to view our Maryland Green Travel Partner Profile.



Lyndaís creative skills as a potter have been the catalyst for creating Goose at the Door Pottery.  Designed and built by Dan, the Pottery offers guests an opportunity to take home a gift or keepsake. 


Lynda is also a certified massage therapist.  Pre-arranged appointments are preferred, but short notice requests are welcomed and every attempt will be made to honor them.  Gift Certificates are available and make wonderful gifts.  To purchase them, click here.

  Professionally educated and skilled in the art of self-sufficiency founded upon a common sense approach to life, Dan and Lynda bring to their guests an experience and exposure to a way of life that is fast disappearing from the American landscape.
