You are welcome to explore the farm, and a map is provided in your guest information book. Tomahawk Creek is located about a quarter mile from the house.. It is suitable for swimming or wading, fishing, and kayaking (on a short stretch of creek). It has bass and perch. There are a few fishing poles at the house, but you would want to bring your own gear if you're serious about fishing. (There are some great fishing opportunities in the Mountain View area, on the White River and in Blanchard Spring Recreation Area.)
Kayaks and a canoe are available on the creek bank. The water level and clarity of the water will vary depending on the time of year and weather. The water may be too low to swim or kayak in later summer.
You are invited to bring ATVs to ride. Shooting is also allowed. (Please contact the host in advance about where to shoot.)
Along with whitetail deer, turkeys, and other wildlife, cattle will be peacefully sharing the property with you at times. Don't bother them, and they won't bother you! If you visit in early summer, you might have a chance to watch hay being cut and baled. Although there are no other animals kept at the house, we do have goats, peacocks, and other animals that you are welcome to stop and visit on another part of the farm.
This property is about a 15-20 minute drive from the town of Mountain View, and the route includes about 2 miles of dirt road (can be muddy or bumpy at times). Cellular service is spotty! We provide free WiFi, along with a telephone for local calls.
