A series of stone ruins marks the approach to the farm, along a private road that climbs from the lake and leads into an arrival court. This outdoor room is enclosed by remnants of stone walls, characteristic of farms in the region. A portal in the east wall of the court provides access to a smaller courtyard and an entrance to the wood-framed house. Inside, a light-filled great room, anchored by a massive stone fireplace, reveals views of the surrounding landscape.
