Private Pond
A private swimming pond is
a 2 minute walk from your room.
Got some time to explore? Lucky you! Start with a walk at Bailey's Mills. A brook bisects our land and its euphonious babble is ubiquitous. Lower Road, now a private trail, reaches our two tiny ponds, one for people and one for frogs. There are picnic tables and a raft.

"...The morning we spent floating on the pond will be the vacation memory I'll pull forth when the need arises - reminding me of the serene time spent there..."
Barbara and David

Continue on Lower Road to a our new path edging the stream: Voila! Fairyland! Water crosses solid rock where Nature has created little cascades and clean pools. Man added a mill whose stone remnants guard the stream and keep their secrets. Secluded and unique.

"...The room, the creek, the sweet smells of natural life all make this place enchanting."
Elaine and John

We have two additional wooded trails and we expect you to have trouble picking a personal favorite.

"...Can we take the stream home with us? Or at least a recording?!"

Then venture out for a drive in the countryside. A two mile ride brings you to the Jenne Farm which draws photographers at dawn's early light. You might want to join them and return for breakfast. The address of the Jenne Farm is 1264 Jenne Road.

Another excursion is based on the Wood's Apple Cider Jelly we set out at breakfast. We'll gladly sell you a jar but it's best to visit the farm where it is made, about 25 minutes from Bailey's Mills. The hill country is very rural with great views. Nearby the Wood's Farm you can pick summer strawberries or autumn apples at Wellwood Orchard. Then drop into Springfield for a bite at the Morningstar Cafe. So: Cider Jelly + Wood's Farm + great views + Wellwood Orchard + Morningstar = win, win, win, win,win! Pick up directions in the parlor.

Ask for more ideas you won't find in any guidebook - we have quite a few.
