The space

The retreat space is a beautifully renovated
mobile home with a large picture window, and 2 bedrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom has a garden tub/shower and a stackable w/d. Although it is lovely and quiet here, it is a very country setting. Please note: there IS FREE WIFI, but NO TV Service and VERY SPOTTY or NO CELL SERVICE depending upon your carrier. HOWEVER, you can have cell service by simply walking or driving out a few blocks.
This is a great place to UNPLUG!

PLEASE Leave the space clean and tidy since we do not charge a cleaning fee! Please wash all of your dishes and put them away, please clean up after yourselves so that we can keep the cleaning fee at ZERO and the cost of the retreat affordable. Thank you‼️

Please observe the 4 o'clock check in and the 11 o'clock departure time so that the retreat can be properly prepared for all guests.

Also please note: there is an air conditioner in the open space and two fans to bring it down the hallway and into the bedrooms. We so not have central air! We do not have individual air-conditioners in the bedrooms due to the shape of the windows. Since we have a well, there may be a sulfur odor in the water. Although the water is fine to drink, we provide a large bottle of spring water and bagged ice for your enjoyment.
