Our Property:

We are built on a granite slab with a decline at about the middle of our property. Our terrain is dirt with gravel and stones. The entire upper property and the restroom are wheelchair accessible. Often times if guests have a need, I can transport them in our ranch golf cart. We are dedicated to make this experience accessible to EVERY BODY.  Please reach out with any further questions.
