Large comfy bed, that you won't want to leave, in a cheery cantaloupe colored room. This room has been a favorite for writers and explorers of all kinds. Snuggle up and let your imagination wander, who knows what you'll find! Then go for a walk!

The space

This room quiet but light, with north facing windows (for those that like a quieter start to the morning - although you are on the barn side of the main building). There is one Queen bed and this room can actually accommodate 3 people with an added cot, $15 for an additional person.

Our main building is is 4000 sq ft, with a great room (7 couches), views of the lake from almost every room, 2 full baths, FIR sauna and more.

We are a 90 acre Holistic Retreat Center and Organic Farm (Garden of One). We are working farm, and sometimes have animals that need short term special care. So you may find a baby chicken, turkey, duck, pig or rabbit nestled in a box or tub inside the main building. Most often you will be able to interact with them but please ask first!

The "north" room is available year round, we heat with wood and a rocket stove mass heater so things are always toasty. We are at a 2000 ft elevation which makes for lovely cool sleeping weather, even in the heat of the summer.

Lovely swim-able private lake, forest & gardens. Canoeing, fishing and hiking available on our property.

Full organic meal plans offered separately (and we are happy to pack a lunch for you if you're going to be out and about) -- can accommodate gluten & dairy free and most specialized diets. Please make arrangements ahead of your stay for any meals you would like us to provide. We also offer picnics (with a real basket and everything!) that you can have on site or take on your travels (again, by prior arrangement).

Sauna, Ionizing Foot Bath and private sessions (massage, reiki, health consults) also available, please ask for our fee schedule.

Guest access

Main building bathrooms, great room, indoor and outdoor "bistro" dining areas if taking meal plan. Library, product testers, sauna.... Lake, hiking trails, fire pit, gardens....

Interaction with guests

We are very available and happy to help you find what you need.

Other things to note

We do have 2 very friendly dogs that will want to be your best friends. Also farm animals that we are happy to introduce you to, baby goat therapy is the best! There will be farm noises, roosters greeting the morning and various grunts and snorts... far less noise than any modern city.

There's hiking, biking, nature parks, horse racing, concerts, festivals and events and so much more. Links and information will be provided to guests that stay with us that are looking for entertainment & excursions.

Beautiful location with welcoming hosts. Loved the three dogs and the farm. Rachel and Bryan have a lot going on at their property, a really fun atmosphere! Truly a unique and rehabilitating experience.

Rachel was a perfect host - effortless with communication in advance, friendly and engaging upon arrival, the unit is exactly as described, gorgeous property and wonderful people to meet. Would definitely recommend this place - any of the rooms or cottages - and we'll certainly be back here soon!
