You can witness the deer rutting rituals from your deck, enjoy the solitude, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The color change of the trees and bushes can be seen as you stroll down the country roads and also can be viewed on the surrounding islands and mainland. Ideal for that perfect get away or writer's retreat. Great for the Holidays!
