About this listing
Come experience a beautiful night under the stars in our fun and relaxing Treehouse! Walking distance to the University, the library, organic food options, & a variety of cafes, bookstores, restaurant, parks, and unique local businesses. :)
Sleeping in our Treehouse brings the magic and wonder of childhood to life! It is an adult-sized wooden refuge, nestled amongst the oak trees in our vibrant backyard. There is a handmade three-bunk bed, as well as chairs and nightstands, with floor space if needed. A perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea, a book, or a conversation beneath the stars. :)
The Zen Hostel is a small, friendly, family-style location. We offer a meditation room, library, and a peaceful courtyard with a zen pond surrounded by native and fruiting plants. You are invited to make yourself at home here!
In addition to your sleeping area, you have access to a kitchens, 3 outdoor patios, a meditation room, a divine outdoor hand-made shower, laundry facilities, and a courtyard with plenty of delightful paintings and plants tended by our resident artist, Oliver :-)
Free Wifi is provided!

Other Things to Note
Our home is an historic landmark dating to around 100 years ago! Many of the original features are still here, making for a uniquely beautiful and interesting space. We do not have the appearance of a new home, but we hope that you will love our whimsical decor and down-to-earth, laidback atmosphere! :)
Good vibes = good times! We like to keep the atmosphere peaceful and fun. :) We are vegan and vegetarian, so no meat is cooked here. We cannot accommodate pets at this time. Thank you!
