Much of the property is wooded with well laid out trails for hiking or even for cross country skiing. There is 100-year-old field stone rock wall abounding the property.
Included with the mountain retreat are two 3-acre and four large 5-acre fields with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains.

Don't be surprised to see the rare bluebird and colorful wood ducks making there homes in and around the numerous bird houses and the spring fed pond near the house. Deer and turkeys are always around as well as blue heron and the occasional bald eagle. Red hawk families circle in the rising evening air every day throughout the summer and at night the owls sound off year round. The fertile pond is filled with frogs, turtles and several species of fish.
