Lodge and Ranch

The estate grounds and River Oaks Lodge offer an ideal setting for family vacations and reunions.

With a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a 30 x 30 great room (with stereo, dvd player, satellite television, piano and wet bar), five bedroom and three baths, and a 30-foot furnished porch offering a panoramic view of the Courtois River Valley, the lodge offers a beautiful and serene setting for friends and family to relax and reconnect.

A fire ring in the cedar grove just outside the Lodge is a wonderful place to spend the evening, and the fishing lake just west of the Lodge is stocked with blue gill, bass, catfish and crappie. The 200-acre estate grounds include beautiful paths and trails that are a delight to explore.
