2 miles of Boardwalk nature trails!

For those of you that don't know, we will be adding around 2 miles of boardwalk trails, a bridge that crosses over the creek, a gazebo and several areas for sitting. Along with this we will be adding several information posts telling visitors about all of the wildlife, trees, bushes, grasses and wildflowers that call our property home.
Seventeen years ago we returned ten acres of creek bottom farmland back over to nature to create what you see today. Now that this land has had an opportunity to mature we are now adding boardwalk pathways to access some of the most beautiful parts of the property that the public has yet to see. This is going to open up a whole new world for picture opportunities for our couples. We don't shy away from the fact that we are located in the country and that we aren't he easiest place to reach. When you get here though we want you to feel as if it was absolutely worth the drive. Stay tuned on our progress regarding this and updates regarding our plans to open up to the public on non event days starting in the spring of 2019!
