Things to Do
On Site Activities at Country Oaks
Country Oaks offers guests a variety of activities without ever having to leave the property. We have a horseshoe court, 3 miles of mowed hiking trails, catch and releasing fishing on our private 7 acre lake. No fishing license required, and we have some poles and tackle although we recommend you bring your own. For those of you who are “birders”, guests have already identified over 50 varieties of birds. There are benches along the trails from which you can observe the spectacular scenery surrounding Country Oaks. If you’d rather just wile away the day in a comfortable chair and read, there are two parlors and lots of porch space. Porches have ceiling fans for summer when the breeze has disappeared. Deer, geese, squirrel and other wildlife are often spotted on the property. Even a bear, mountain lion and bobcats have been spotted over the years.
The area surrounding Mountain View offers some wonderful opportunities for sightseeing day trips. And, this area is a great place for motorcycle riding with lots of winding roads for day rides.
Things to Do in and Around Mountain View
Mountain View has been called the “Folk Music Capital of the World.” Great music is plentiful around Mountain View, which is perhaps best known for the impromptu pick’in sessions that are a nightly event around the court square, weather permitting. Bluegrass, folk music, country, and good fiddle tunes are all within earshot of the courthouse.
