We did it!
In October 2017 we were finally able to purchase the large 6+ acre property across the street on Hooker Road. Plans for its development are still on the drawing board, but this extra acreage will provide amazing possibilities. Here is a winter picture of the large Lodge on the property originally built in the late 18th century.
