Night Sky (on-site)

On a clear evening, set out with your colleagues to our observatory and enjoy the most amazing views you could ask for. Our powerful telescope and far off location bring the night sky to life.

Reservations must be made in advance and are only available to overnight guests

Fly Fishing (on-site)

Take a break from your meeting and learn the art of fly fishing. We have instructors available for private and group lessons. Reservations are required, and fly fishing equipment is provided.
Our instructors provide beginners and “old pros” with enough skills to catch a fish on a fly. Because of the personal attention you receive, your skills at any level will improve. Whether you are new to fly fishing, or an experienced angler, our school is sure to provide you with new skills, knowledge and techniques that bring increased pleasure in the sport. Come join us for a most enjoyable and rewarding way to learn this pastime. Schools run from three hour workshops to two-day sessions, starting early May through late September.
