About Red Fox Hunt Box
This country barn home was the inspiration of Karen Glenn and Alvin Lane. After retiring from Maryland, they moved to Camden to become innkeepers. Construction began in 2014 on this 11.3 acre property formally owned by Jim McGuirt. The timber barn home was engineered by Barn Pros from Monroe, Washington.
The Red Fox was named after Karen’s maternal grandfather, James J. McLaughlin of Connecticut. JJ McLaughlin, an architect and yachtsman, was a widower whose nickname, “The Red Fox”, reflected his debonair style and handsome red hair Irish ancestry.
The Red Fox Hunt Box is an adaptation of the Barn Pros Denali style barn. The Denali is an open floor plan that celebrates the vaulted wood ceilings and handsome pine wood. The tree house appeal is a major attraction for many guests. The pine boards for the 1736 square foot guest house were loaded and transported cross-country from Washington state on one semi-truck and assembled on site.
The guest house is located above a six stall horse barn, which allows guest to board their horses during their stay. Located in Hunt Country, The Red Fox Hunt Box is adjacent to thousands of acres of riding trails. Members of the Camden Hunt have access to this gorgeous part of Camden. Guests have ample riding trails and and supervised trail rides by a Master of The Camden Hunt can be arranged.
As you enter you will notice the lovely walnut hand-sculpted flooring. The home offers two cozy guest suites nestled behind beautifully crafted sliding barn doors. Each guest suite is elegantly decorated with glass tile walled showers.
The kitchen is complete with natural quartz stone counter tops. Many of the prints and paintings were purchase at Heritage Antique Mall, in Camden, and were originally displayed at a Polo Club located in Columbia, SC. A painting featured in The Red Fox Suite was painted by Karen’s mother Doris P. Glenn. Doris is the mother of nine children and an artist and jewelry designer. There is a Hoover storage building that sits adjacent to the guest house.
