If physical activity is what you crave, go for a walk among flowerbeds galore and explore the organic vegetable garden that supports the occasional Farm-to-Table dinner. Or for something more strenuous, hike The Martyn House Trail that leads you up through the Hemlocks, by the pond and down through the Pines and Mountain Laurel that fill the property.
