Great for hiking, biking, misty morning walks, or swimming and floating on the pond across the road, in front of the house. Swimming enthusiasts can also take advantage of the community pool in the nearby town of Deposit that is open to all throughout the summer. Pick the wild blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, black raspberries, red raspberries, and apples that grow wild on the property. Enjoy the gardens, wild flowers, and humming birds as you sit on the porch. Fish in the beaver ponds on the property, or up the road at Marsh pond, an expansive lake and wildlife refuge that lies within the State Park that borders this vacation rental property. Escape the heat of the city to a place where there is always a cool breeze and be sure to bring warm clothes for the cool evenings.
