Location + Surroundings
For those wanting an "off-the-grid nature experience," this property is just the place. Guests can start the morning enjoying breakfast or a cup of coffee in an Adirondack chair off the deck and take in the views and solitude of old growth trees, nature, and forest or venture down to the hammock below the tree house for peaceful relaxation. Afterward, they can hike the property's well-maintained 200 acres.
The Heart Trail takes guests around the property and is 3.3 miles, leading them to a large, Trillium, three-person hammock, where they can enjoy lunch. The newest trail, the Hobbit Tree House Trail, will leave guests immersed in finding the 10 hobbit houses, sometimes with hidden gems inside. Guests can make their way to the end of the trail to make a wish in the creek located by the oldest tree on the property.
The five tree grove is available to guests to book a guided tree climb. Here, the property's professional facilitator will take guests to the top for the best views. They can learn all the tree tricks, including coming down upside down, or just hang out in the giant green net. Guests can also book a guided meditative hike that will connect them deeper to themselves, others, and nature.
A fire pit is strategically placed to view from the deck or comfortable seating to roast marshmallows. Kids can go on a scavenger hunt to find the five ponds, explore an abandoned 1800s settlers log cabin, and wade and play in several cool creeks. Read More
