Preston's Thicket strives to delight our guests by offering comfortable surroundings in a warm and cozy atmosphere. You'll think you are home in a country setting! We make every effort to supply you with all the conveniences you left at home, but with our take on the country life! We like nice sheets, comfortable furnishings, good coffee and tea, a friendly welcome basket to greet you with homebaked goodies, your pet at your side and the wide expanse of country beyond the front porch! We supply food for the wildlife for your free entertainment--and if you can't do without some of the city conveniences, well, we provide internet and satellite tv and a landline so you stay connected. We have ducks and roosters roaming the grounds, not too proud to beg, and keep corn out for the wild turkey and deer that are too shy to come up to you, but may offer you a glimpse of their presence. We keep a pile of firewood by the firepit, or a BBQ grill with free propane if that's your style. We even supply the aprons, grill utensils, and condiments. All you need are the steaks! We've planted apples, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries and want you to enjoy the fruits of our labors. When these fruits are in season, we encourage you to use our baskets to go picking! Our pond is full of fish, and we supply the fishing gear for catch and release, but if that's not your style, we supply the food to feed them. See how many types of fish come to the surface to feed! There's at least 7 that we know of! We are so sure you'll have the best time with your friends and family at Preston's Thicket that we will give our guests 15% off future stays at either of our cabins. Make your reservation today for Preston's Thicket and get a taste of home in the country!
