A quiet place to enjoy watching the birds and deer. The home is tucked in the woods with elements of nature extends into the home as beautiful artwork. I highly recommend this wonderful place.

Julia's place has become my "home away from home" while I visit my mother who lives in Youngstown. Julia's place is neat and clean, tucked in the woods, and provides a comfortable haven for a weary traveler (like me). I'd highly recommend staying with her if you'd like a kind, thoughtful, attentive, and friendly host.

My husband and I stayed at Julia's place over Christmas while visiting nearby relatives. Despite the timing, Julia made us feel most welcome. Her attention to healthy eating and living was most refreshing. Her place is uncluttered and spotless. She is extremely accommodating, so if there is anything that you need, just ask and she will try to make it happen.

Julia was kind, hospitable, and in constant communication concerning the listing. I reached out to her last minute during a time of stress and she was super helpful. I plan on staying with her again when I return to Youngstown visit my mom.

Simplicity in the Woods was a fantastic place to stay. It was so peaceful and cozy. The host was very accommodating and personable. Both the organic breakfast and coffee were outstanding. The house was beautiful, well organized and very clean. The upstairs accommodations were perfect. I could not ask for a better experience. Julia even referred me to a local organic restaurant, which I loved! I enjoyed talking with the host she has a very dynamic personality.

As an author (WAKING UP and Changing My Life), licensed massage therapist and certified yoga teacher, I am committed to being true to my Self, living in the present moment, taking care of my health and reducing my footprint on the Earth. My priorities are: cooking and eating organic plant-based real food; gardening; composting; taking canvas bags when shopping; hanging the sheets on the line to dry; removing invasive plant species from the land where I live; planting native species; walking; hiking and having honest meaningful relationships.
