Relaxation

On the other end of the activity spectrum, a quiet day spent reading on the futon on the large screened-in porch is a favorite of many of our guests. Also on the porch is a picnic table, It’s a wonderful setting for bird watching, enjoying a meal, or writing notes to friends back home. Sitting outside in the yard while grilling fresh trout, visiting, or just playing Frisbee can leave you wondering where the time has gone. Finish the day with some roasted marshmallows around the fire circle.
