*Winter/mud/early spring season access: Parking is at top of driveway (easy walk), outdoor shower not available. * Being a rustic cabin, one does need to keep the wood stove going. Cabin can get chilly in the coldest of temps. Firewood supply is currently minimal, so please pick up some bundled dry firewood.

There is an outdoor compost toilet outhouse, privately situated for guests use, complete with an antique stained glass window!
Interaction with Guests
This being my second season as an airbnb host, I must say, I just love meeting all of the wonderful guests that I have been fortunate to share my tranquil, and lovely spot with!
If I am around, I would be more than happy to answer any questions, or give you ideas, and directions to places of interest. Perhaps we can even share in a nice glass of wine! I do live on the property in a yurt as well. I am usually always accessible via text, or phone.
* I totally respect my guests privacy, and need for their "alone" time. Please understand that I do wander through the property, tending to my gardens, etc, but will only socialize with guests, if they so desire!
My neighborhood is a quiet rural spot on a country dirt road with great, but barely ever seen neighbors. Out here everyone is busy tending to their property, be it farm animals, gardening, or just doing all the chores that are required living a rural life! If you listen you can hear the horse whinny at the landowner next door, or the sheep herd (baaa) in the back of the land! The area is teaming with wildlife. At night, the abundance of stars against the dark night sky, will amaze you! Fireflies magically illuminate the summer nights! And when it's the frogs mating season, which are abundant along the ponds edge, their chorus will sing you to sleep!
Great sunsets as well!
I love where I live, when there is something needed the neighbors are always ready and willing to lend a hand! And when we can we get together for some socializing, we all catch up with each others lives. Out here we respect each others privacy, but think nothing of walking up to each others door and saying hello, or asking for a hand!
Rural country life just doesn't support public transportation unfortunately (a downside), but we are not far from many conveniences accessible by car, walk, or get on a bike!
Other Things to Note
I will do everything I can to make your stay comfortable...I supply towels, cotton sheets, flannel in the colder months, and biodegradable natural soap and shampoo for the outdoor shower as well.(Please only use biodegradable/natural products while using shower, as it does drain directly into the ground.)
(URL HIDDEN) the summer, there are plenty of fresh herbs, and mint everywhere for your use. In season, berries as well! I do grow organic vegetables, and am always happy to share in the harvest!
* Minimum stay is 2 nights, but please ask if needing one night...
* * I am also a Reiki practitioner. If interested in booking a session, feel free to contact me to set up an appointment, or any questions you may have!
Makes a wonderful surprise gift as well...
*This is a non smoking property
* No Pets
*I would totally appreciate it if you would separate any recyclables from trash, and if you have vegetable scraps I can compost those as well! There is a ceramic compost pail in the cabin for food scraps (please, no meat, or cheese in compost)!
* Please take all leftover food with you when you leave.
*Please refrain from using OFF, or any DEET products on the property, as this is highly toxic when sprayed, as well as when using outdoor shower.
I have lemon/Eucalyptus essential oil in the cabin for your use.
The outdoor shower is supplied with natural biodegradable soap (Dr. Bronners), as well as shampoo...I would appreciate it if you would only use these, as the water does drain right to the ground!
*I am passionate in taking care of the land in a sustainable and respectful way, and I ask that you are mindful as well :)
*No pets allowed unless contacting me prior as there are too many other animals here
*Also, only toilet paper in the compost toilet outhouse!
