Take advantage of on-site hiking trails, creeks, campfire pit, gas grill, or maybe reserve a horseback tour or rent a kayak to fish/float on the pond. The Blackberry Suite is one of 2 completely separate apartments in the Red Cottage. Rent both for larger families and open the adjoining doors to function as one dwelling. It is an authentic cottage with large front porch and also a small back deck. This apartment has 2 double beds, recliner, rocker, cable tv, large charming old fashioned kitchen, and spacious bathroom with walk-in shower.
Also access to gas grill, campfire pit, trails, creeks, fish pond, and picnic areas all on a 300 acre retreat which is shared with only 2 other houses. The property is also shared with horses. You may be able to reserve a trail ride, pony ride, or lesson through the separately owned horse business or rent a fishing kayak for floating on the pond (stocked with bluegill).
Lots of hiking trails, creeks to play in, and abundant wildlife.
