Guests in apartments can bring their own food and cook it in their apartment's kitchen, on our outdoor gas grille, or over a campfire. We often have fresh eggs from our chickens and duck. We keep some staples, frozen foods, snacks, ice cream, and multiple flavors of local root beers on hand. Take items and leave an appropriate cash donation on the honor system.

Visitors not staying with us can bring their own food and cook it over a campfire. Visitors can purchase locally brewed root beer and ice cream (root beer floats). $5
