Take a dip in the creek! Beautiful secluded acreage with mature trees

Beautiful secluded property with a creek running through it. The backyard is about 1 acre with a big open field surrounded by large mature trees and a creek bordering the back side. Dogs must be trained not to run off as we do not have a fence. Old fence posts show the property lines. You can to take a dip in the creek with your dog to cool off on hot days. The water does flow so I wouldn't recommend it for really small dogs. The water is fairly shallow but can get high and flow fast after heavy rain. You will have to walk down a small hill to enter the creek. The weeds get high by the water but I have made 2 separate paths to enter the creek. Entering the creek is at your own risk. The creek is on the property line so the land across the creek is not part of the property so please do not go across the creek. If you do plan on going in the creek I recommend water shoes and a towel, it can get muddy by the water. And it can also get buggy, so you might want to bring bug spray as well. Feel free to move any of the chairs from the firepit to anywhere around the yard. Please clean up after your pup, garbage can is the green one by the garage. You can park on the left side of driveway by the RV and enter on the left side of the garage but it's a bit crowded over there so you may want to park on the right side by the brick walkway and enter the yard in between the house and the garage.

Fantastic property & hosts. My dogs were exhausted when we left. There's a huge open space, the river, a trampoline & a pool (not open yet-too cold). I had a great time.

This sniffspot was incredible, definitely one of my favorites!! There is a gate entrance we were able to let ourselves in and out. I was worried about the fence but it was very secure and tall enough for my lab and german shepherd. The yard was very large and the pool was incredible. We had a lovely time and will definitely be back soon, thank you Tina!

Communication was a little spotty but we went anyways. It was great for my 2 young corgis! We went at night since my 1 dog is a little reactive to noise. It was perfect, great space for catch and they absolutely loved the pool!
