THE OUTDOOR SPACE:
On the nearly 3-acre, beautifully landscaped property, you can choose from taking a dip in the large in-ground heated saltwater swimming pool (completely fenced-in), soaking in the 8-person hot tub, making s’mores around the fire pit, lounging around the pool deck, grilling out on our gas grill (propane provided) and dining al fresco under the overhang - all within the complete privacy of the surrounding woods. There are pool chairs, toys, noodles and both traditional and 'zero-gravity' pool loungers. The 8-person hot tub has an easy-open cover and stairs with safety railing.
Beyond the fence is a large lawn, acreage with walking trails, abundant nature, a hammock, and plenty of space for lawn games.
