  3. Our new annex addition to the main lodge is over 800 square feet. The annex proved to be invaluable for facilitating our six whitetail hunts in 2016. The dining, socialization, and meeting space was comfortable and efficient. In 2017 and beyond, the annex will accommodate seminars and meetings for veterans’ groups, non-profit, plus civic and educational functions for groups of 50 or less. New A/V equipment will facilitate presentations. Lunches or light dining can be arranged or catered as well.
