Description

The space

The guesthouse is secluded and private, a true retreat from our fast paced society - a great getaway from NYC only 1.5 hours away. It is located over our yoga studio -- so when classes are in session we ask for you to be respectful and very quiet. You are welcome to join regular classes for free if you choose. The regular weekly schedule includes morning classes on Mondays, Thursdays & Saturdays. Please inquire about additional class times & events prior to your booking as we host monthly Guided Meditations, JourneyDance and seasonal concerts, films and workshops. For these extra (non weekly) events regular fees or donations apply.

Guest access

There are hiking trails and lots of open space to enjoy on the property including the Little River Trail & Preserve. The space is set up as a restorative space for relaxation, self-reflection, restoration. When there are no classes and the studio is not being used in another fashion, feel welcome to take your personal yoga/meditation practice downstairs and roll your mat out in front of the beautiful candlelit alter. There is a large, private sun drenched deck out the apartment door facing the forest, where wildlife activity abounds. Find yourself here star-gazing, birdwatching, or meditating in nature. There is an infrared sauna on site guests are welcome to use. There are basic kitchen necessities; cooking utensils, pot, pan, oil, vinegar, some spices, plates, cutlery, coffee and tea. There is laundry soap, dish soap and cleaning supplies. There is limited cell service on the property, however, at the end of the driveway and certain parts of the property it comes into full use.

Interaction with guests

We are a friendly and cool family of 5 with lots to do but always available to give info and chat. We don't like to disturb you so we leave it to you to choose how much contact you'd like. Come join us at the bonfires we have on gorgeous summer nights!

Perfect escape! Cathy's place was exactly what I had hoped for and more! It was so great to unplug and really connect with my kids. We hiked, relaxed, star gazed and found magic all around. Hope to return again maybe for a "ladies" weekend. Thank you Cathy!

The barn was a great weekend getaway for my husband and me, especially it being so close to NYC. Cathy was a great host, and we so enjoyed our time in Redding. The barn was clean, well equipped with modern appliances, and cozy. The outdoor space was beautiful even in the rain. Would recommend to anyone and surely return.
