CabinsOne small cabin is minutes from the lodge, while the remaining two hand-built cabin are close to a semi-private lake, some distance from the lodge. Guests park their cars at the trailhead before heading out to the cabins. After a 15 to 20 minute hike through sometimes rugged land of mixed forests, ponds, and granite outcrops, you will arrive at the Hobbit House – like walking into a fairy-tale. A little further down the trail is the Parthenon, another astonishing find in the middle of the woods. Cabins are single or double occupancy. Meals are provided in the lodge during workshop sessions. There are limited cooking facilities in the cabins for personal retreats.
Private and shared rooms with simple furnishings are available in the lodge. The lodge is constructed with straw bales, and the bedroom wing of the lodge is sheltered with a living roof with a drainage mat constructed from recycled materials. There are spacious windows in every room, with views to the meadow, forest, or pond. Delicious meals are provided in the great room in the lodge. Lodge accommodation includes a shared room with three single beds, two rooms with two single beds in each room, two rooms with double beds, and one room with a king-sized bed and double futon.
