Bed and Breakfast--Guest Ranch

Birthday Parties


 

Update July 14, 2018: I apologize to those who have tried to call recently. The remodel disconnected our land line. I have now listed my cell phone at the bottom of the page for contact. 

If you are interested in parties and guest stays, as expected with remodeling, it takes longer than you think and our projected time to be ready again will be October.

I am still doing horseback riding lessons and private and small group art lessons. 

Summer Camp scheduled July 30 - August 3. Click on link above.




Creative Afternoon

Kids Art 

Do you need a place to encourage you, where you are allowed to get messy, or just to find time for your own artistic explorations? Then come join us in our art studio and see what you can create with our large selection of materials. Choose from chalk and oil pastels, colored and drawing pencils, markers, poster paints, paper collage, recycled materials, and natural materials. 

Each day begins with an inspirational look at books or artworks for 20 minutes. Then, you choose your own materials with 60 minutes to build, paint or draw with the help of idea resources including an art library, videos, how-to books and an on-site artist to help you with inspiration. 10 minute finish clean up time to put away your materials.

Ages 8 and up.

$60 for 4 sessions  4-5:30 pm

Reservations Required

Dates coming weekly for summer

Parent Comment: "I did want to share with you that whenever I mention a day camp to my kids they keep asking if they can go to yours.  They loved all the projects they did and getting to ride your horses. 
Thank you for providing such a wonderful opportunity for children.
Fondly,
Bethann W. (mother to Andrew and Katie)"
