Horse Kennel Suite

The Horse Kennel Suite has been transformed from our kennel and feeding barn, to this beautiful cabin suite. Just a stones throw away from the main lodge, this suite has all the charm of cournty living, including our horses that come to visit along the fence just outside the back door. The full kitchen has refurbished cabinets from an old farm house, and the bathroom continues that vibe with retro vynl flooring that will make you smile when you walk in. The cozy fireplace can be enjoyed at the seating area around, or the comfort of your bed. And for added fun for the little ones, there is a loft above the bathroom that you can access by ladder.

The bathroom is handicap accessible and has a beautiful walk-in shower.

On the Grounds

During the warmer months, there’s nothing better than spending time on The Lodge’s wraparound deck, complete with a covered breezeway and beautiful views. Even during winter, you can find the perfect escape on the three miles of walkable trail that crisscross our grounds. Although we do ask that you refrain from feeding our horses, you’ll have plenty to do when you start to explore the 200 acres that we call home:

  • Get everyone together on the Lodge’s deck and patio, or visit our gazebo to relax in the shade.
  • If you bring your own equipment, you can kayak or canoe down our own personal stretch of Kilbuck Creek—or dip your toes in when the weather starts to heat up.

You’re free to use our grill for as long as you stay. Our lawn and garden provide the perfect outdoor gathering space, so you can keep friends and family close while you prepare the evening meal.
