A sandy beach lies below and the river beyond. Sauna and labyrinth are nearby. This is the favorite hide-away for guests.
Overlooks one of Lucile's most beautiful views of the Main Salmon River.
The bed is a queen-sized memory foam mattress, positioned above a large storage space for luggage. The Wagon is lit by two solar lanterns and candles for mood. For your night comfort a chamber pot is included. Main toilets and showers are located a short distance at the Haven.
In the compact space, the table slides out from beneath the bed. The perfect venue for early morning coffee or tea, a light lunch or an evening of cards or a game of cribbage.
After a hike in the nearby mountains, a stroll up Cow Creek, Salmon or Steelhead fishing, or a raft or kayak trip down the Salmon River, you might want to return to the wagon to freshen up. A pitcher of water and guest soaps are provided. There are also large fluffy bath sheets provided, for trips to Mavens’ Haven swimming hole or wood-fired sauna.
Or perhaps you would prefer starting a little warming fire in the stove (small is the word here, as it takes very little to make the wagon toasty warm). Perk a freshly ground pot of coffee or brew a cup of tea.
Mavens' Haven has a full kitchen for guests who wish to cook meals. Other guests use the kitchen, as well, so please clean up afterwards. No one lives in the main building, it is a communal space and guests are welcome to make use of it. There are great spaces for reading and relaxing, there.
The orchard and gardens produce fresh vegetables most of the year. Guests are encouraged to help themselves when preparing meals ~ there are always fresh eggs in the refrigerator for your use.
Guests will have access to the main guest house (Mavens' Haven), which is a community space with kitchen, bathroom/shower, WIFI, game room, movie room, and library. There are two guest rooms in the main house so, when occupied, please be mindful of early morning or late evening noise. There is a communal fire pit beyond the deck of the main guest house.
Interaction with guests
Guests mingle at the main guest house. Jim and Linda, neighbors living in the doublewide trailer next to the pickle ball court, can manage most situations.
