The view from every guestroom is woodland and more often than not includes a few deer sightings.
Other small woodland creatures will leave you chuckling at their antics. Pileated woodpeckers and turtles are frequently seen and owls are frequently heard.
When it's time to "hit the pit" as we say
Find yourself in guest rooms with comfy beds surrounded by Persian rugs, high thread count luxurious linens, plush/pillow top mattresses, and thick cotton terrycloth robes and footwear, with a pitcher of our own filtered spring water by your side. Fresh flowers, from our garden when available, accent your room.
Each room has a remote controlled fireplace.
Use it for additional heat or for ambiance.
All of our linens are laundered using environmentally friendly soaps, and the sheets are lined-dryed (weather permitting) eliminating the use of fossil fuels and chemically harsh dryer sheets.
They are then hand-pressed for your comfort.

Want to learn to lose weight, eat all you want and be the healthiest you have ever been?
Sounds too good to be true? Petra will teach you about the nutrition facts and studies no one wants you to hear. Learn a new way of eating and dispel all the old myths about how and what a healthy diet is. Learn about the impact of foods on our health, environment, and medical system. Get off the supplement marketing treadmill.
It's not about being vegan, raw, or "paleo"; it's about eating natural healthy FOOD.
Learn ways of listening to your body. What do you eat that you think is helping you, but isn't? Where do you spend your food dollars in the market?
In only 120 days Petra was able to decrease Mike's cholesterol by 60 points just by using this incredible perspective on nutrition.
Not to mention, improving Mike's ability to run faster with less recovery time.
