On Site Activities

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 for those one night stays! Bird watching is a favorite on our 129 acres or counting the butterflies in our wildflower garden. Put your mind to rest and enjoy the meditation of looking for and identifying native plants or mushrooms. Utilize guide books from the Montfair office to help learn new species! Arrange a private lesson with Mango Yoga Adventures paddle board yoga or take out the Montfair canoes on the lake. Explore our woodlands, wetlands and open fields for creature identification opportunities. 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 in the wedding field with the 365 degree views of the mountain silhouettes and the Milky Way or check out the constellations from the lake front that is only seconds from your Montfair cottage.

Bring your rod and tackle and visit our lakes, stocked with small and large mouth bass, catfish and blue gil.  Take our bikes out for a countryside ride breathing in the fresh mountain air or work on your form on our rustic outdoor tennis and basketball court before heading out on a horseback ride at a nearby stable or with Indian Summer Guide Service. Just be sure to save some time to spend time together on your cottage porch or in your group with a picnic, family barbecue or storytelling events.

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