The flag stone patio was probably originally constructed in the early 1930's.  The area was covered with dirt and other trash and was uncovered and restored. An old falling down outside fireplace was removed and replaced by the brick fire pit. A low stone retaining wall and a place to sit by the fire ring was added along with additional landscaping. This fire pit area is available for guests from any of the four rentals to use. The Lodge has it's own LARGE charcoal grill/smoker over by its parking area.

My parents enjoyed the band at Downhome Restaurant Sat. night while I had the kids at the town park. Everything is so close and there is so much to do to keep everyone happy and entertained. It was a challenge to squeeze it all in the short time we were here. Thanks for thinking of all the little details that made our stay one of the best!
