It’s not about the length of time you stay with us, but what you do with it. We offer a variety of recreational activities for week-long retreats or for those one night stays!  Bird watching is a favorite on our 129 acres or counting the butterflies in our wildflower garden. Put your mind to rest  with Mango Yoga Adventures paddle board yoga or take out our canoes on the lake.  Break out a field guide and explore our woodlands, wetlands and open fields for stargazing and flora and fauna identification opportunities.

Bring your rod and tackle and visit our lakes, stocked with small and large mouth bass, catfish and blue gil.  Take our bikes out for a countryside ride breathing in the fresh mountain air or work on your form on our outdoor tennis and basketball court before heading out on a horseback ride by Indian Summer Guide Service. Just be sure to save some time to spend time together in your group with a picnic, family barbeque or storytelling events.

But most importantly, relax in the quiet simplicity of nature.
