For vacationers and family gatherings, Stump Sprouts provides the perfect base for visiting local attractions and enjoying the great outdoors. Without going anywhere at all, you can enjoy a variety of wooden games in the rec room over at the barn, enjoy a walk on the land. We maintain a 2 mile hiking trail to the viewpoint at the top of Lone Boulder Hill and another shorter loop around the meadow. Or you can simply relax on the patio and enjoy the view.
