Our estate stemmed from a lifetime of exploring the outdoors and searching the world for like minded people. Our vision was to find a calm setting where such people could gather and benefit from the healing power of nature and introspection. It has been reported that people in the USA are indoors for between 85 and 95% of their lives; with three quarters of the population living in an urban area. With this knowledge in mind, it comes as no surprise that our visitors are attracted by the power of nature and come here to restore energy and expel stress. We have left a significant area of the estate undeveloped and we are proud to watch over it as a sanctuary for all living creatures. This sanctuary houses a diverse array of ecosystems: fields; pine forests; mixed hardwood forests; ponds; creeks; springs and the river. We think that this is a very special place. Friends, family and volunteers have helped with trails, habitat restoration, gardens and building projects. A variety of birdlife can be seen here; bird enthusiasts can often find Bald Eagles in March (the record is seven in one day) and a plethora of songbirds from April through early September. Common sightings include Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Northern Orioles, Indigo Buntings and a large variety of Warblers & Sparrows. We are committed to protecting the bio diversity which thrives here and encourage our guests to explore and appreciate it fully. There are opportunities here to go on self guided walks; do photography; creative writing; painting and sketching; study the birds and other wildlife; study the natural history of the area and do ecological research.
We work very closely with lots of local businesses in our vicinity and strive to promote seasonal activities to our guests. In Autumn, we highly recommend a visit to North Star Orchards Farm Market and Bakery where you can pick delicious apples – a great family adventure! The Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts held at the end of September has been a tradition for over 30 years. See the main street of Remsen be transformed into a venue for more than 250 craft and food vendors. With winter comes an abundance of outdoor activities to get involved with. We always point our guests in the direction of Osceola Tug Hill Cross Country Ski Centre and Forest Park. Suggesting great local places to dine is something we do actively. Less than twenty minutes away you will find Avicolli’s Pizza (reminiscent of Central New York’s rich Italian heritage); Captain John’s where the Captain recommends you try the ‘Lobster n Seafood Fra Diavolo’ and Coalyard Charlie’s which has been established for more than 50 years. We are proud to live in this area and love sharing all that there is to see and do with our guests; we are always on hand to point you in the direction of something fantastic.
