The owner of Sleepy Hollow Farm, Beverley Allison, came to live in the house in 1950 as a bride. She led a very interesting life starting out as a journalist in Virginia and advancing in her career to being a journalist for ABC working in Washington DC. Beverley left journalism to become a missionary for South American Missionary Society, an independent Episcopal society in Latin America. During her career she also raised five children and has eleven grandchildren. She "retired" in 1984 and opened up her home as a bed and breakfast. Then in 1988, Our Little Roses Ministries was founded in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and Beverley was asked to help with the mission. She is now the Executive Director of Our Little Roses. With her busy schedule, her daughter Dorsey Allison Comer has taken over as manager of Sleepy Hollow Farm Bed and Breakfast.

It is not known who built the original portion of the farm house, but it is believed to have been built sometime in the late 18th century. A large addition was added in the 1850's and another in the 1940's. Several generations of families have lived in the farm house. There is believed to have been a ghost from the Civil War to have resided in one of the guestrooms. However, Beverley had the house blessed and the ghost has not been seen since.

There are four rooms in the main house you can choose from. Upstairs is The Ghost Room, which has a double bed, and The Children's Suite, which has two rooms. One room has two single beds and the other has a double bed and a single bed. They can also put up a crib if needed. Downstairs is The Master Room which has a four-poster queen bed and a separate dressing room. The Squire Room has a queen bed, fireplace, and a whirlpool.

There are two suites in the Chestnut Cottage. The Old Quarters has a sitting room with a fireplace downstairs and the sofa opens into a double bed. Upstairs is the bedroom with a queen bed. Also in the Chestnut Cottage is the Kitchen Suite. The great room has a wood burning stove and a queen size sofa bed. There is also a kitchen and a whirlpool room. Upstairs is the bedroom with a queen size bed. The two suites can be opened up if someone wishes to rent the entire cottage. This is a great option for a group of up to four couples traveling together or a large family group.

Breakfast is served in the sunny dining room. This is a real country breakfast with eggs, bacon, and biscuits plus there are cereals and other items for those not wanting as full a breakfast.

This is a true farm country get away. Children and well-behaved pets are welcome.
