Can I bring my dog?


Good news! You don't have to send your best buddy to the doggy kennel, you can bring your wellbehaved and hosue trained dog along. We just ask that you stick to our easy to follow rules. 1) Clean up after your dog in the yard. 2) Wipe paws before they come inside. 3) Keep the gate locked at the top of the stairs, so your dog does not go downstairs. We have white carpet and would appreciate your help keeping it clean. 4) Do not allow your pets on the beds or furniture. Woof, woof!

We do not allow parties or special events without prior consent. Please inquiry about special events, weddings, corporate and wellness retreats.




What's with all this "don't bring plastic' business?


We understand that getting away is a time to celebrate, connect and relax as a group. While you might be inclined to take the easy route and bring along disposable cups, plates and utensils as well as bottled water, we ask that you don't. The fridge produces an unlimited supply of filtered water and we have invested in reuasble outdoor cups, wine glasses and dishware in an effort to reduce our single use plastic output. We ask that you do your part and leave the single use plastic on the store shelves. Yes, you will have to wash the dishes - sorry, not sorry! We also understand that you might want to mark the occasion with special decor; such as balloons, banners and trinkets, but we ask that you please be mindful of the lasting effect that these disposable items have on the planet and that you help us with our committment to reduce our output of plastic and single use items, by keeping this to a minimum. Your group may appreciate it for a few days, but after you have had your fun, it lives in the landfill - FOREVER. We truly apprecaite your help with this. xo

Can we swim in the creek?


Yes you can! It might be called Parks Creek, but it is really more like your own private river oasis. The water is approximately 6 feet deep, with a creekside dock, island and waterfall. There are some fish in the creek as well. Enjoy sun bathing creekside, swimming, exploring, fishing, jumping off the raft and whatever else you like to do by the water! In the winter we maintain a skating rink, with the cooperation of mother nature of course. The creek runs fairly fast in the spring and it is deep, so please be cautious with little ones. Bring lifejackets and puddle jumpers as required. We also recommend water shoes as there are lots of rocks. Kids and dogs love to explore the creekside. There is an adventure around every tree and under every rock. Be prepared to spend lots of time by the water's edge.
