It is a virtual "Alice In Wonderland" setting. The hosts even offer "critter feeding" activities (critter is Texan for little animal), where guests can get up close to an array of animals, with host guidance and supervision, of course. A lovely semi-private river is just five minutes to the left from of the cabin and a very nice lake is only nine minutes to the right of the cabin.
Horseback riding for all skill levels is available with top-notch purebred horses that are very docile and loving yet exhilarating for riders that have experience. The hosts can teach and/or guide guests through lovely rides through the woods, as well as pony rides. The hosts have even had "horseback picnics and "horseback weddings"—great photo ops!
"Survival training" (like the TV show) is offered by Mickey, a retired Special Forces commander. Guests who love to cook?Book a class with our world-famous chef to learn to make delicious dishes.

Badminton, bocce ball (yes, like in Paris), horseshoes, etc. are also available. At night, what can be more fun than a campfire?
