Slow Down With Us

Sonia Thompson

The holidays can feel frantic, but at Splinter Creek, winter is a time for reflection. Wildlife and bird watching takes place from a perch by the lake. A fire roars in the pit at the Community Porch. It's the ideal weather to explore new trails through the frosty winter landscape.

There's a chance to read that book that's been sitting on the nightstand. We find joy in the sound of rippling water, fiery orange sunsets, and the sounds of a flock of geese overhead.

The winter solstice is December 21, and while it's the shortest day of the year on sunlight -- at Splinter Creek -- it's one of the longest in peace and comfort.

The pace of Splinter Creek slows in the winter, leaving more time to appreciate the crisp, clear air and quiet of the lakes. Winter is a time for gathering with friends and family, and celebrating the year's end. It is indeed a time for reflection and joy. We invite you to visit the property this winter, and we look forward to welcoming you.
