The Lodge contains a kitchen and a tavern-style bar, plus plenty of space to entertain with cozy leather sofas and a large wrap-around porch overlooking the flagstone-decked saltwater pool. Other lodging options include a two-bedroom guest house and a large four-bedroom guest house with a full working kitchen and dining room with French doors, leading outside to a large scenic back yard with a propane grill.
