The Grounds consist of 10 acres, and nearly 6 acres are mowed with pathways leading one to another to 9 little clearings. Lovely at any season, a morning or evening constitutional will add enjoyment to your visit. The Grounds may, also, be accessed from every room, which all have their own outside doors. It can take about 20-30 minutes to walk the entire property. There is a Pond, a seasonal creek and 40' of Bear Creek Frontage, accessible as you cross over the Bridge at the little pond. The woods consist of a mixed forest of Pines, Cottonwoods and Aspens. There are Owls, Woodpeckers...(even Pileated Woodpeckers show up!), Robins, Jays, just to name a few species. Turkeys, Quail, and the odd Pheasant frequent the property. The Deer make a circuit of the neighborhood and bed down in the wonderful habitat that can be found, here. For a longer walk, you can head West on Pistol Lane, 3/4 of a mile to the end. This is a Private Road and therefore, not much traffic. Heading East 1/4 mile back towards Hwy. 93 you can walk along the new paved pathway that runs from Hamilton to Lolo. Many bicyclists are enjoying this ride as well.
