10. Fishing off the Treehouse dock. Borrow our poles to bring in a bucket-full of bluegill. More serious anglers will want to concentrate on the largemouth bass.
9. Bike ride to the beautiful Bourbon County courthouse and stop by for a Kentucky Hot Brown at Thyme Cafe where you will likely run into a big time horse farm tycoon or two. Arrangements can be made for Pat to lead you on a bike tour to the Cane Ridge Meeting House--about a 20 mile round trip.
8. Take a scenic drive to the Colville Covered Bridge, one of only 13 such structures still standing in Kentucky. Then hop over to “Our Mims” thoroughbred retirement haven and meet some famous ladies of racing.
7. Sit by our creekside fire pit and have a sip of whatever floats your boat.
6. Shoot a game of horse on the basketball goal. CAUTION: Beating Pat, consistently, may contribute to enhanced self-esteem. If basketball is not your game, look for slam dunk deals at 20 antique stores, galleries and specialty stores downtown! Be sure to stop and flop on the big couch at Bobby Shiflet's "Frames on Main " gallery--make him play you some John Prine on his superb stereo system.
5. Sample the first bourbon produced in Bourbon County since Prohibition at Hartfield & Co. Distillery, open Monday-Saturday, offering free samples. Or check out Rooster Brew, only microbrewery in the history of Bourbon County; open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
4. Walk to La Esperanza Mexican grocery for really loud jukebox music, delicious $2 tacos and cold Coronas. For two Coronas, Pat will translate.
3. Canoe or kayak downriver to the Creekview Inn (about 15 minutes paddlin' time) for a burger and a beer and a spirited game of "corn hole."
2. Putter upriver on the pontoon boat to Rocky Shores , drop anchor and listen to the birds and horses at sunset.
1. A tie between:
Float on inner tubes behind The Treehouse while listening to reggae (or whatever!) on the outdoor speakers.
Sunrise tour (with Pat) of Hunterton Farm at Stoner Creek, the state's largest standardbred operation. Hop the fences and play with 100+ baby trotters. Say "howdy" to the Swedish and Finnish young women who work this incredibly lovely farm. Visit the graves of standardbred legend "Meadow Skipper," and "Count Fleet," one of the top three thoroughbred champions of all time.
