Retreats & Overnight Lodging
There are three upstairs bedrooms that together offer five beds. Two smaller rooms (10 ft x 12 ft) each have one bed. The master bedroom (22 ft x 12 ft) has three beds. They are all leather futon/twin beds. This floor also has a full bath with a tub and walk in shower.
There is plenty of room for extra if people want to cozy up on mats in sleeping bags. We ask that overnight accommodation does not exceed 13 (like the 13 Moons) guests. We have a thing for numerology.
The main floor also offers a full bath, a kitchen and living room space with a fire place. This river stone fire place gives off great heat and is certainly in the room to be enjoyed, with its rustic vibe and window views of the forest. The room envelopes you in pine logs and has great energy.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and you will feel this when you gather to enjoy meals with those sharing space with you. We are happy to ensure it is well stocked with coffee and tea. It has a screened in porch overlooking the back yard, which also leads you to the deck. In the cooler weather there is an outdoor heater and on the side lot there is a large fire pit.
We have just begun gardening and landscaping, and love getting our hands in the dirt and welcome other gardeners to do the same. Perhaps we can plant our hopes and dreams while we plant flowers. Please visit our About page to learn more about our Healing Forest and Project Heart garden.
Until the weather is warmer and we can add additional parking, you can put approximately 7 vehicles in the driveway. If larger groups are renting the space, we ask that people think green and car pool. You are able to park on the main road (Dozois) as long as your wheels are off the pavement and you are considerate of traffic. Safety first!
