Our home is tucked in a mature forest with a babbling brook, small pond and gentle animals (birds, deer, frogs and more). It's a quiet, peaceful wonderful place to relax and enjoy family and friends; yet near communities and cities offering culture.
Sit on the porch swing to listen to peepers; watch the stars around the campfire; sled down our hill or build a snowman, walk in the stream; build fairy houses in the woods---just be yourself. There are easy short hiking trails on our 20 acres and thousands of hiking, biking and horse trails within a couple of miles at Brookfield State Forest. We have several kayaks for your use in ponds or streams within a 10 mile drive.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
If you rent a single or couple of rooms, we'll be sharing our home and happy to interact at your pace or at least be available to answer questions or offer aid. We enjoy watching movies, playing board games or sitting around the campfire. If you rent our home, we'll greet upon arrival to go over our home and give you a key. Then we'll be within ten miles and available if needed.
Regardless of whether you rent a room or our home you are welcome to use the kitchen, laundry room, wifi, TV room (though we don't have TV channels or cable) but there are plenty of dvd's or bring your own. Cell service is limited but we have a landline for incoming calls.
While visiting Sapsucker Ridge let us know if you would like a lesson (additional fee) in blacksmithing to create something simple to cherish forever. You can also join us to make your own bottle of maple syrup (seasonal with proper weather conditions, usually late Feb - late March).
We expect our guests to treat Sapsucker Ridge with courtesy and kindness, keeping it clean and neat. We compost and recycle to show our respect for Nature.
My husband, Fred, and I love the outdoors and do a lot of hiking, kayaking and enjoying it all. It's great to hang out with people and share stories while creating new memories. Fred loves to build furniture out of hardwood cut and milled from our 20 acres and blacksmith. I enjoy reading, crafts, and hanging out with friends. Every winter season we boil sap from our maple trees to make delicious maple syrup. We padded for 400+ miles from our home to the Chesapeake Bay and recently drove across the US camping at most of the National Parks and visiting family and friends. Both were inspiring and we can't wait to experience more.
