The Grounds

The perfect setting for a walk or a picnic, The Cedar Gate has eight ponds, three of which are stocked with trout. The dock at the lake nearest the house is a popular place to gather and visit. There is also a hunting tower that is currently being used as an observatory.

Just outside the lodge is a massive charcoal “grill wagon” for gatherings. There are also relaxing hammocks, a fireplace surrounded by Adirondack chairs, swings and a hot tub.

Heirlooms & Artifacts

Many of the doors inside the lodge are antiques from India. Indian accents are found throughout the house, evoking memories of a mission trip the Hill family took. Click the button below to see more heirlooms and artifacts across the property.


Building The Cedar Gate

The property has been a part of the Hill family for decades. Brian’s parents, Gene and Roberta Hill, leased the property for 40 years and had created many happy memories there: picking berries and sandplums; hunting quail and dove; and picking their Christmas trees each year.

The Hills offered to buy the property many times through the years. When it finally was put up for sale in 2004, they immediately made an offer and got to work.
