Settled in a lovely wildlife area bordered by county forest, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the trees, flowers and creatures around us. Beautiful hiking trails allow you to enjoy this environment serenely on your own or join a friend or loved one for a walk.
On those hot summer days everyone likes to gather to enjoy our swimming pond and sand beach.
Are you a bird lover? 60 different species of birds have been seen or heard at the Homestead! Bring your bird book and see how many you can find and identify!
If you like a laid back atmosphere rather that structured activities, this is the place for you! Although we plan events for the holiday weekends, such as our famous Labor Day parade, our day to day philosophy is more impromptu. We have a variety of recreational activities for anyone interested in participating, such as 6-circle golf with tennis balls, croquet, T-toss and various board games. Bocci-ball is always a favorite.
Our central fire pit is the place to gather on Friday and Saturday nights. We have lots of laughs!
Since we have no outside light interference, the stars are spectacular. Full moon nights are breathtaking.
