    This property is a gorgeous spot to travel to. The beauty is amazing. The park (we are fairly sure we found it and were in it) is extremely well-fenced, has a lovely deck and table and chairs for sitting. There are no signs to locate it within the property so we spent 10 min. trying to locate it. There was a wedding reception in the tent so many people were on-site with music playing. There is no water access in this dog park - as is shown in the photos. The river access may be on the property, but there was no sign or sniffspot explanation of where / how that's accessed or if it's also fenced. We were unable to locate the garbage can, poop bags, or bathroom for people that are listed amenities. I messaged the host several times on Sniffspot to get instructions, but have not received a reply as of this morning.

    Host replied: At the time of this visit we were just opening and I had not finished everything. There is now a trash can, poop bags, etc. There is a river and a pond on the property and there are directions in the description as to how and when you can access it, in addition to using the fenced in sniff spot. I'm sorry you were with us before everything was officially set up and I hope you can come again.

    Super beautiful area! My pups loved it. Super clean and beautiful sights to see. We will for sure be coming back :)

    Host replied: Thank you for the cute photos and for your visit. I have re-activated the listing now that I have signage, poop bags, etc. up and hope you will return.

    A Cozy field nestled between the wedding venue and well kept gardens. Fencing was very secure and it was quiet even with people going about their jobs. Would be an excellent spot to do off leash training with a dog

    Host replied: Thank you for your kind remakrs and I hope you and your dog (blue heeler?) will come back. I've had the listing off until I could finish some amenities and it's live again. I hope you can return.

    What a wonderful Sniffspot and a kind host! Our dog had a fabulous time running, smelling and playing in this lovely valley spot.

    Host replied: I'm so glad your dog had fun and I hope you can return. I have reactivated my spot now that I have added/finished some amenities.
