FOREST  BATHING  is trending – meander through our forest trails. Relax, breathe  in the air, wander and wonder, touch, listen and heal both physically and spiritually.  Let go and enjoy the atmosphere around you. Forest Bathing has been linked to reduced heart rate, lower blood pressure, lower cortisol levels and enhanced immune function.  Forests have a cheerful and tranquilizing influence which they exert  upon the mind.  So  come stay with us and get out in nature for a walk in our  woods!
