WANT TO KNOW MORE?: Gentry's Rest Stops 1&2 are professionally decorated by the owner, a well known interior designer, in a charming country decor and the outside has also been lovingly tended for picture-taking for your memory books. Four-season and holiday decorations contribute to the coziness of the home and children love to view some of the local wildlife close up that is part of the area. Gentry's have their own 'resident' elk, aptly named Bullwinkle, who actually comes to visit occasionally and loves to pose for pictures! Raccoon and squirrels scoot among the trees as well as hummingbirds, butterflies and fireflies at night. Guests are well taken care of as the Gentry's live on-site and are available to supply your every need should one arise. When you arrive you will notice your quarters are on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the home. The Gentrys are mindful of your seclusion and separateness and you can be assured your privacy is guaranteed. There's plenty of parking for vehicles and if you want to trailer your motorcycle or ATV, there is more than enough room for turn-arounds on the gravel driveway. Easy access all year and ATV and motorcycle enthusiasts will find many trails to explore. Please see our website at Gentrysreststopmaggievalley.com for more photos and information.
