Tranquil and private with great views. Healthy. eco-conscious space built to LEED guidelines. A true Bed & Breakfast, we offer fresh organic free range eggs from our hens, homemade bread, or waffles, etc. Hiking trails right from the house up the hill or 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 and we can shuttle you. Small cars unadvised under snow packed conditions.
