On clear nights the stars are wonderful -- check for when the meteor shower periods are. Gather friends/family/mates around the movable fire pit and take in the Milky Way/stars. Near-private area just around the corner is great for hiking, exploring, swimming, fishing, or just soaking up nature and the peacefulness.

Please note: This is not a farm stay--the animals are not to be fed/petted by youngsters, as the donkeys do not always understand where carrots leave off and fingers begin. For those who think donkeys can be fed with an open palm like horses, the fact is they cannot--they are not like horses and ignoring this reality can get your fingers nipped. Also: no drones are to be flown on our property as the sound terrifies the animals.
