This one of a kind B&B was designed and built by your innkeeper, Dan Ells in the early 80s. Dan was fascinated with the concept of passive solar-heating. His wife, Lynda, was an avid organic gardener. Together, they were “Going Green” well before many others were. After raising 8 children together, your hosts decided to share their home with others and converted it into a Bed & Breakfast. Butterfly Fields is so unique, that it's been featured on NBC's "Going Green" segment with Wendy Rieger, the Travel Channel, area newspapers, and the magazine What's Up? Annapolis. Visit our Gallery page to see pictures, video, and print articles about Butterfly Fields. Then, come experience this special pastoral paradise for yourself!
Relaxing on any one of the many outside decks of the main house provides guests with the chance to savor the surrounding pastoral farm lands and woods that surround Butterfly Fields farm. Walking along the garden paths gives our guest a chance to experience the varied fragrances of flowers, fruit trees, grape arbors, planting beds, and trellises, all part of the extensive gardens that encircle our home.
Guests may also visit Lynda’s studio – Goose at the Door Pottery. Here you can browse Lynda's artistic creations, many of which are available for purchase. In addition to pottery, Lynda also makes soaps and jewelry. Her studio is open by appointment only and on November weekends leading up to Christmas.
