Our Grounds!
The Grounds: Come over and walk the gardens surrounding the property. Take in a round of bocce before dinner. Or bask in the late afternoon sun under the canopy of towering pines in the backyard. Or take a short walk. The property adjoins a Conservation Trust where a network of quiet walking trails take you into old growth woods with lush ferns, moss and an abundance of birds and is a wonderful place end your day.
