I use to take my children here when they had snow so they could play in it, then would come to the picnic area's in the summer and enjoy hiking.

“Miles of carriage trails to hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The manor is beautiful & has an excellent craft shop. Get a map for all the carriage trails and enjoy spectacular views from some. All are gravel with manageable grades (watch for the horse droppings though).

“Pretty in the snow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Great time hiking the trails. Really pretty with the snow on the ground. The art in the manor house during the summer is enjoyable to see, but the house is closed for the winter.

“lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This was an old manison turned into a shop of the local crafts. It has trails and horseback riding, bring your horse. There is a stable near by to rent. A great place for a picnic.
