A true one-of-a-kind place. Retreat like setting & atmosphere. Utter quiet, save for the the wind, birds, & sometimes owls & coyotes at night. Lakes, rivers, skiing & hiking nearby, or take a lovely, quiet walk/snowshoe right from the house. Plenty of shops, grocery & restaurants & a 4 screen movie theater, 10 minutes away. Off-the-grid, solar powered, & woodstove cozy. Beautiful porch for warm weather months. Yoga studio & piano, too! Relaxation & natural beauty, unplugged.
This is a non-smoking house, and it welcomes folks who are gentle and respectful. Being off-the-grid requires a bit more mindfulness, and rewards you with the peace and beauty of a private and undeveloped setting.
Also, I consider my place suitable for children, assuming that parents will be responsible in keeping their children safe on stairs, and around the wood stove!
There are bins in the shed for recyclables, & a container for compost in the kitchen, to minimize trash.
Feel free to make use of spices, teas, condiments. If you use a generous amount of one thing or use it up, please replace or leave a note alerting me to what needs replacing!
YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN SHEETS AND TOWELS! or let me know if you need them provided, and you pay a $25 use fee for 2 people, add $10 per person after that. (I don't have laundry on site, so it is both my time and laundromat cost!)
Please be able to make a reasonable arrival time (ie; not late at night) as I will be meeting you to walk you through the off-the-grid routine! Many thanks, Karen
I teach yoga and am also a photographer and wanna-be writer! I love sharing my home with others, & having so many opportunities to meet warm & interesting people, from all over the world. I enjoy the seasons & the changing activities that go along with them: bicycling, swimming, gardening, skiing, reading, cooking, deep discussions, dancing, meditating, birdsong, being with dear friends and family, and all manner of critters!
I created this home with lots of love, & truly get pleasure from sharing it. You will have it to yourself though, & I look forward to hearing about your adventures.
Wishing you and yours abundant goodness in life and love, Karen
