Building Second Wind was a lifetime dream of Mark and Kelly Illick. In 2003 they broke ground on Kelly’s grandparents farmland. Five family generations have lived on this land, and now it is often visited by the sixth generation (presently ten and counting). Second Wind has four unique suites at the main inn and two housekeeping suites at The Homestead giving you a choice of amenities, atmosphere and décor.
