From Kayaking, rope swing to enjoying the farm life on property Melody's place is a great spot to get away from the busy sounds of the city and take in nature.

What a wonderful experience.
Private , peaceful, beautiful property. The hosts are the sweetest! Brought us a dozen fresh eggs, never had fresh eggs before and they were delicious.

Kayak, row boating and nature...

The chickens are so cute.

Instructions were clear, no rush checking out.
