Tranquil and private with great views. Healthy, eco-conscious space built to lead LEED specs, but not certified. A Bed & Breakfast, we offer fresh organic free range eggs from our hens, homemade bread, etc. Hiking/mt. biking trails near and around the property. A great escape from the urban world.

Dirt and gravel road; small cars okay IF you drive carefully, OR phone from bottom of hill as we can shuttle. Snowpacked - small cars not advised
