Farm Boxes from Lylewood inn

Farm Boxes from Lylewood inn

The summer veggie season is in full swing, and nowhere is that more evident that the “grocery boxes” offered by Mandy Williams of the Lylewood Inn.  Each week Williams teams up with local farmers to prepare the pre-ordered boxes for delivery to two  local outlets. Every box has a week’s worth of farm- fresh vegetables and fruit, enough for a family of four for a week. Williams also offers  the following items that you may order each week Spices, Homemade breads, Jams, Jellies, Salsa and Pickles.

Boxes can be picked up between 4-6 p.m. at The Mill at 1101 Dover Road (at the bypass and Dover Crossing) and at the Sango Pharmacy on Madison Street (near the AT&T store) between 4:30-5:30. Cost $25 per box. To order, call Williams at 931-232-4203  (always leave a message).Special requests and orders can be accommodated.

Lylewood, “a quiet humble home on the Cumberland,” also offers a number of programs during the summer where you can go back in time and relax.

On Saturday, July 20th, from 1 -7 p.m., Lylewood Inn will host Family Day at the Inn, with children’s activities that include an Egg Toss, Squash painting, Corn Shucking, a  Scavenger Hunt and more — all designed to entertain children.

Mandy offers “Back-in-Time” classes to teach the “old” way of doing things like canning, jelly making, crochet, quilting and other fun projects.

Last year Williams launched her other passion, Live & Learn  Camps for Girls, with the intent of teaching  skills in which to grow confidence and skills for the world in which they live. Williams uses the natural environment of Lyllewood Inn’s historical and country setting to enrich the children with a different way to look at life. Children learn to expand their ideas and experience things which they may not have been aware they have an interest in learning. Personal growth for children on a level, in which they are at, will be gained through small group initiatives and individual guidance.

Lylewood Inn was built in 1892 by Major Thomas W. Lewis. The stone foundation and cellar go back to the early 1800?s. Williams started coming to visit Arch and Edwina Lyle, grandson to Maj Lewis, when she was only two. She grew up visiting her “summer grandparents” and loved the home. In 2001 she had the chance to purchase the home and turn it into her dream of a bed and breakfast. Williams and her children,  Luke and Audrey,  started the work of restoring “Lylewood Inn Bed & Breakfast”. Williams wants guests to feel they are part of the family while here.

Mandy offers “Back-in-Time” classes to teach the “old” way of doing things like canning, jelly making, crochet, quilting and other fun projects.

Lylewood is located at 110 Camp Lylewood Road in Indian Mound. For more information, call 931-232-4303.
