The Environment

& History

The Town


an inviting escape

Three separate accommodations—a 4 bedroom Lodge, 2 bedroom Cottage and 1 room Cabin—each with its own rustic personality and peacefulness.  You may wish to reserve one, two or all three. 

All the beds are Queen size and dressed with ironed Frette linens. The baths feature plush Frette bath towels and Moulton & Brown hair and skin amenities. WiFi is available and firewood for the fireplaces (Lodge and Cabin) and woodstove (Cottage) is provided. All the buildings have barbecue grills and firepits.

  • The Lodge: Four bedrooms, a beautiful field stone fireplace in the Great Room with a cathedral ceiling and open dining space. The deck and screened in porch overlook a cascade of small waterfalls and the swimming pond. Fall asleep to the sounds of rushing water and wake up to birdsong. Two of the bedrooms have in-room sinks, one has a television with cable and there is one shared bath. The Lodge also features a full kitchen. It is glamping at its best.

  • The Cottage: Two bedrooms, one bath with knotty-pine paneling and a cozy wood stove in the kitchen/living area. The Cottage also has a screened-in porch and a large open backyard, with a picnic table, for star gazing or a fire in the fire-pit.

  • The Cabin (aka The Love Shack): What could be more romantic than a sweet little one bedroom, one bath Cabin with a field stone fireplace for quiet romantic nights? There's a small kitchenette, but who needs food on a weekend like this? It’s called The Love Shack for a reason!
