After spending the day hiking or riding the trails or biking around the county, come relax by the stone fireplaces in our Northwoods lodge, nicknamed the Pickaroon.


First built in 1978 and expanded in 2001, the Pickaroon features:

  • vaulted ceilings
  • huge wrap around deck with tables
  • log construction
  • 2 wood-burning fireplaces
  • antique decorations from the Farm’s earlier days
  • 2 old-fashioned pianos
  • ping-pong table
  • wireless Internet

The wrap-around porch is the perfect place to read or play a board game. You can also challenge your friends and family to a game of table tennis. Paddles and ping-pong balls are available for your use. The lodge now also features wireless Internet.
