Now recently retired as the kindergarten teacher, I still enjoy maintaining Spindlewood as a warm and wonder-filled Waldorf early childhood setting with handmade wooden and woolen toys and outdoor play area. The walls have absorbed children's song and laughter for 30 years. The table area is sized for children. Kitchen has basic pots, pans and skillet. Gas stove, small refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker. No microwave. Situated in a three generation family farmstead at the end of a country road.
Wi-Fi signal is weak in the cottage, but stronger as you walk toward the nearby house. You are welcome to step into studio for Wi-Fi.
You are also welcome to visit the sheep and hens in the barn.

Jack and I have walked to work for years. He to his architectural studio, where he now paints and does sculpture. A bit further along the path is Spindlewood Kinder Cottage, Susan's Waldorf Kindergarten for 30 years that is now an Airbnb. Susan is now traveling to lead LifeWays Early Childhood training programs for teachers and caregivers. Our second and third generation live next door. And three woolly sheep and laying hens live in the barn.
