Spring Has Sprung!

Spring is here at the Lake. Our roses, after a heavy pruning earlier in the year, are back in bloom and looking magnificent. All the signs of spring are showing — from the foliage, to the birds and animals. So come visit us at this unique time and take the opportunity to experience some silent time in meditation and enjoy a pause from daily life. 


Dear guests, due to repairs the houseboat will be closed in the foreseeable future. A re-open date is not available at this time. Please periodically visit this web page for further updates.
