In the Great Room, you’ll find a large wrap-around couch where you can enjoy the look and warmth of the wood stove.  The well-equipped kitchen has all the amenities to prepare even the most elaborate meals.  After a long day of fun-filled activities, drift into dreamland in one of the beautifully constructed hand-made log beds. Four bathrooms, all with showers and tubs give even large groups enough privacy and convenience. The large outside deck, with a barbecue grill, tables and chairs, overlooks the private pond and front acreage.  Hike throughout the property and appreciate the enchanting ‘old growth' oak trees, giant sequoias and ponderosa pines. During the summer months, take a dip in the fenced-in pool with a picture perfect waterfall. Unwind in the 8 person jetted hot tub all year long.
