The space
Temple of Joy Retreat Home is meant to be a complete home where you can feel comfortable staying for an extended period of time. We hope that everything you may need is there already in a beautifully decorated home which you have all to yourself and it feels like a HOME.

Mountain fresh spring water from Olympia's Artesian Community Well is provided in the decanter for drinking and cooking. Olympia is blessed to have a community well in the center of town where we all come to get our water. It's truly a gift to share something so precious as water with complete strangers from all walks of life. We all drink from the same well. It's a shared resource that truly builds community. It is said that drinking the water will draw you into seeking community in your life.

Well equipped kitchen with 12 cup coffee maker, bean grinder, tea pot, assorted teas, herbal, black, green, cocoa and coffee included. Wide assortment of pots and pans, table service for 6 plus plastic plates and cups for the kids. Corkscrews, knives, cutting board, mixer and more. Full laundry with iron and ironing board. Plenty of parking. Large yard. We live a few hundred feet away and are home most of the time if you need something you can't find.

DVD player with assortment of movies, the movies are quite a variety and of various ratings PG to R, there might be a couple of G movies. Let us know if you would like the movies removed in advance of your stay.

Guest access
You have full access to the home and yard. Make yourself at home. There is an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows. Firewood can be purchased at the grocery in town.

Other things to note
The home is really easy to find in the dark. The driveway is well lit and can be seen clearly from a half mile in either direction. It is really the only light on an otherwise darkened highway, so you can't miss it.

We have several homes available on Airbnb. They are several hundred feet apart with plenty of space all the way around. Yet you can rent more than one house if they are available and you need more space.

The home is surrounded by apple trees and the deer are quite at home here. It's very likely to encounter at least one deer here every day. The apples are free for picking, they are wild organic, and they aren't pretty but they bake delicious. Help yourself. A simple easy is to chop some up in a bowl with raisins or nuts, some spices like cinnamon, syrup or honey to sweeten or not and bake till soft. Yum. Serve steaming with ice cream!! YumYum!!

There are fruit trees throughout the property. Apples, pears, plums, hazelnuts, elderberry, blackberry, thimbleberry, rasberries, nettles and other delicious treats.

We live on the property and are generally available and responsive.

Tenino, Washington, United States

Friendly, helpful neighbors. Fishing in the lake across the street. Hiking and biking along the paved Western Chehalis trail just across the street. It's about 4 miles to Tenino which has a grocery open till 10pm. There are several restaurants including Don Juan's, which is our favorite mexican restaurant ever. Several antique shops are in Tenino and the Quarry is a famous swimming hole downtown at the train museum. Tenino got it's name from the train that ran into Olympia from here: T-90 or T-nine-oh. We're about an hour drive from Paradise, WA on Mt. Rainier one of the tallest mountains in the country and a great place to watch the upcoming solar eclipse.
