Winter at the Inn

Participate in old favorite winter activities such as:  a winter horse back ride at Faith Ranch, sled riding, or a beautiful and invigorating winter hike through the woods followed by a cup of home made hot chocolate at our hot chocolate bar.  Or take a dip in the outdoor hot tub which is both relaxing and fun.
