The grounds around the lodge encompass about 13 professionally landscaped acres. Lighted walkways lead from the lodge to the Murphy House. Seasonally blooming flowers along with perennials fill the flower beds.
The back porch of the lodge is joined to a beautiful brick patio which lends itself to afternoon drinks and hors d’oeuvres as well as good conversation. Rocking chairs are plentiful and available outside every lodge room.
The fire pit is another late night gathering place during cold weather.
