Additional info

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for one OFF-GRID sleeping cabin with no electricity, running water, bathrooms or kitchen IN the cabin, HOWEVER, you have access to our lovely “Common House” for flushing toilets, shower, kitchen and dining area, which is a 5-10 MINUTE WALK or short drive from the Cabins/Campsites. The Common House is mindfully SHARED by all other guests onsite and is a wonderful opportunity to meet others and practice cooperative living. Think hostel or co-op for travelers.

All cabins have composting toilet outhouses located within a 1-2 MINUTE walk from cabins/campsites.

Please note that there are two households (the families of Ari Wakeman and Emily Adama) that live permanently on the property. (one in the lower level of the common house, and one in a cabin 200 yards from the common house.) During your rental they will maintain quiet and privacy for your group, but will remain on the property for the duration of your stay and will be available should any issues arise.

Cabins and Campsites do not currently have private campfire rings. We have a shared firepit with three picnic tables and logs for sitting on down by the northside of the pond (opposite the eloos). We may be able to provide a private fire ring under special circumstances on a first-come first-serve basis.

Please note the common house is unavailable AFTER 9:30am on the following Sundays due to retreats:
