It’s not about the length of time you stay with us, but what you do with it. We offer a variety of recreational activities for week-long retreats or one night stays. Bird watching is a favorite on our 129 acres, as well as, counting the butterflies in our wildflower garden. Put your mind to rest and enjoy looking for and identifying native plants or mushrooms. Utilize guide books from the Montfair office to help learn new species! First time in a canoe? Take out the Montfair canoes on the lake for a gentle and easy paddle. Explore our woodlands, wetlands and open fields. You may see a deer or a painted turtle, let us know what you discover! Night time makes for amazing stargazing opportunities. Lay out under the stars with 365 degree views of the mountain silhouettes and the Milky Way or check out the constellations from the lakefront.

Bring your rod and tackle and visit our lake and ponds, stocked with small and large mouth bass, and bluegill. Take our bikes out on the Montfair trails for a ride or work on your form on our outdoor tennis and basketball court. Be sure to save time to spend with your loved ones relaxing together on your cottage porch. It is always fun to gather your group for a picnic, family barbecue or storytelling events.

But most importantly, relax in the quiet simplicity of nature.
