Fish in the spring-fed pond.  Hike one (or all) of the trails that meander the grounds. Enjoy swinging on the porch swing while watching the many birds.  Build a campfire to relax while taking in the sounds, country air, and the unbelievable sky full of stars unhindered by light pollution.

Well-trained dogs are welcome to accompany you.  Allow them to stretch their legs and run the property as well :)
