"Our family had such a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing time at Dolly's. Our family of 16 brought two campers and filled the house up with 6 small children, 4 siblings and their families, as well as Grandma and Grandpa. It was nice going bike riding, canoeing, hanging around the campfire, telling jokes, playing games, picking raspberries and just enjoying our annual family reunion weekend. Thanks so much for sharing such a charming home and setting!"

Horses will be charged at the rate of $10 per night.
There is no horse shelter.
There are local veterinarian services available upon need.

HORSE TRAILS: We are 15 minutes from the Wildcat Mountain State Park which has some of the best horse trails in the state. We expect to have horse trails on adjoining lands soon. The nearby Kickapoo Valley Reserve also has horse trails.
Can we walk in the woods?
We hope you do and enjoy the splendor of nature surrounding Dolly's Pedaler's Rest. However, there are not any groomed paths, only deer trails. Be cautious.
Rules in the woods?
Please observe fence lines and do not trespass “over” them.
Please leave the woods and its fragile environment as is and leave nothing but footprints behind.
Be an observer. Do not try to approach deer or other wildlife. Watch and learn.
Enter the woods with caution. There are lots of rocks, trees, hills, steep banks and natural stumbling blocks, so please go slowly.
No jumping off rocks and boulders.
Understand that you are liable for yourself and your children.
