Many of the reviews here focus on the composting toilet, but it's so beside the point when you get here and settle in (but I'll quickly say that it's no problem!). Our review will instead highlight the beautiful and stylish (and clean!) space, gracious host, great amenities, awes…

Peaceful secluded spot near Duncan. About a 20 minute drive from town, and a 10 minute drive from amazing swimming spots. Beautiful property with a garden and pond, we listened to owls as we fell asleep! Very special. Thanks for having us Christy!

A great, relaxing spot to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time watching the birds on the lawn and in the trees from the comfy front porch. The place is very tidy and comfortable and the coolness ( literal and figurative) of the cob flooring in the bedroom area added to the ambi…
