Outside the Cottage

Enjoy the Peace and Serenity of Nature

The Front Porch

The front porch greets you with a hug and has seating for four – a perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee while watching the wildlife.

The Front Deck

The front deck is where you can barbeque your favorite food and then sit down to enjoy the delicious meal.

The Rear Deck

Wading out onto the back deck is a real treat. The view of the great lawn, the barn, the forest and some amazing sunsets can all be enjoyed from this vantage point. There is an electric awning for our guests’ comfort on sunny or rainy days. 

The SideDeck

The side deck is a nice place to sit and relax with your favorite beverage while you watch the sun rise over the forest trees or watch your children play in the kids’ playhouse and on the swing.

The Backyard

The great lawn viewed from the back deck is a sight for the eyes and ears. Lots of wildlife can be heard chirping, buzzing, ribbiting, and cooing, especially in the early mornings and at dusk. 

The Outdoor Dining Area

There is an outdoor dining table with seating for 10 on the front patio with a view of the fire pit and forest. 

The Firepit

The fire pit is a favorite spot for our guests. Perfect for an evening drink, hot cocoa, and telling stories. We provide six chairs as well as one bundle of wood and fireproof blankets.

The Hot Tub

The hot tub located on the back lower deck area is perfectly positioned to enjoy the view of the great lawn and barn. 

The Barn

The 1820’s barn was built by the Mabrys, one of the original settling families of the area. It is made of chestnut trees which were plentiful at the time and have since gone extinct in the United States. The barn is a rare treasure which makes a wonderful backdrop for photos. The interior of the center portion and lean-to area on the right side can be used for small dinner parties and events for up to 50 people. 

The Game Room

In the game room, which is located in the barn, you can have a great time playing foosball, billiards, ping pong, darts and cards. In addition, there are games you can take out onto the lawn, including volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, crochet, cornhole and a hockey-size net with a soccer ball. Enjoy!

The Kids' Playhouse & Swing

Children get to enjoy their own playhouse and swing.

The Adults' Swing

Adults get to enjoy their own swing, which is located just outside the Primary Bedroom.

The Creek

1700 feet of Road Creek runs through the property. There is a walking trail to the left of the barn for guests to explore the area and listen to the relaxing sounds of the babbling brook. 

The Path to the Creek

Take a serene short hike through the forest down to the peaceful creek – fun for the whole family.

The Wildlife

In the warmer months of spring through fall, expect to have a few local friends stop by on occasion, including deer, who love to eat the apples straight from our trees, wild turkeys, rabbits, gophers, hummingbirds and more. They are a beautiful site to behold.

The Starry Night Sky

Enjoy incredible stargazing on a clear night. These amazing photos were taken by a guest. Thank you for sharing, Mark!
