Enjoy the tranquility of the backyard with spectacular hiking trails within walking distance. The private community lake is perfect for summer fun. We also have a nice 100" projector screen and projector with 5.1 surround sound. We follow Covid 19 related safety regulations.
Spend a day hiking, biking or doing water fun in private community lake and relax in the hot tub at our mountain cabin.
