The Lake is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk along a wooded lane from the back side of the lodge. Here you will find abundant ferns, wildflowers, dogwood trees, oaks, hickory and maple trees.

High up the hill on the left side of the lake are large moss covered boulders. It's fun to scramble among the boulders and sit atop them gaining inspiration and sitting quietly in reflection at the wonders that abound in nature. Pure peaceful quiet and aromas of fresh woodland leaves and flowers can be an enchanting experience. You can see a fantastic variety of neotropical birds in bright yellow, orange, red and blue in the Spring and Summer.

Mountain Laurels bloom among the sandstone boulders around Fathers Day and Pileated woodpeckers are frequently seen throughout the property.

wild flowers
  The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
