Blueberry Bramble sits next door with its remodeled 3/2 layout interior. Lupine Lodge is the home 'outback', looking directly over the paddocks while enjoying a 3/2 layout with ambiance and solitude. Chimney Pond Camp is next door with 3/2 layout, huge master bedroom, lovely wood floors and cozy feel. Chickadee Nest is a beautiful 2/2 apartment attached to the Baxter Barn with a patio overlooking the paddocks. Please click on each name for a full description!
