Mornings will find you enjoying a splendid breakfast served in the beautiful, large dining room.

After a day of golfing, fishing, canoeing, shopping at the outlet mall or antique shopping downtown Hillsboro, you may want to relax reading in your beautiful room or in the backyard hammock, or walk the trail around the grounds. Our night sky has the most heavenly stars you'll ever see!

Maybe, best of all, you can just sit out on the porch and enjoy the views & sounds of the country - the wonderful pasture with its pond, and the sight and sounds of the many colorful birds.
