Apologies if I mangle the lore ...

It may be the Black Lodge.  The real estate lady said something like
only the truly good and the truly evil stop to look at a dead dog.
You (your white self) must pass through the Black Lodge and confront
your black self before you can reach the White Lodge.  If the white
self is truly good and the black self is truly evil, then it seems
they would meet at Dead Dog Farm.

Plot speculation:  Cooper rents the Dead Dog Farm, and Wyndham Earle
(his "evil twin") tracks him down there for a showdown.

Aside:  it made good sense for Cooper to be looking at real estate (in
addition to the fact that he expressed a desire to settle in Twin
Peaks early on);  with Cooper on suspension, he probably has to foot
his own bill at the Great Northern, which I doubt he could afford for
very long (if the rates are anything like what I've heard about the
real-life Salish Lodge).
