How the Mews got its Name
The Mews got its name from its history. The previous owner of the house was an avid falconer, who kept several hawks and falcons on the property. "Mews" is an antiquated term for "a place to keep a raptor". The idea of a mews implies a calm, quiet place, and is perfectly suited to this home in the woods. These days, the hawks have gone, but the Mews remains a nice place to roost. Occasionally though, you may hear or see local raptor species around the house and on the mountains. We have see ravens, bald eagles, red-tail hawks, red-shouldered haws, and lots of owls at night! Keep your eyes and ears peeled if you enjoy bird watching, especially in the fall months.
