The space

The geodesic dome is a wonderfully unique living space. The round encircling sensation is charming and gives a sense of safety and calm. The large window wall allows you to see the stars, the trees, and the wildlife from your bed; it seems as if you are surrounded by nature and sleeping under the stars, yet you are in a protected and calming space. Overall, our domes are both favorite structures for our guests.

The property offers a perfect rustic retreat in a remote forest area. 120 acres of raw nature and organic permaculture farm. Extremely protected area with artesian spring water and pure air. Ecological living, eco-home, no pollutants, no cell reception, but WiFi is available on the property. Architecturally designed using patterns found in nature. Surrounded by rare and beautiful vegetation and wildlife.

Child-friendly, but no pets. To maintain a high environmental standard, please remove shoes indoors.

Guest access

We have 120 acres of lush forest to explore. There are beautiful natural buildings to visit, including a cobb sauna, a redwood-grove treehouse, and a meditation gazebo- all open for guests to enjoy.

We run the sauna seasonally during Spring and Fall. but you are welcome to explore it regardless, as it is a piece of art and a jewel in the natural-architecture world. We are a registered organic farm, based on permaculture and biodynamic principles with over 100 different varieties of fruits, nuts, tropicals, medicinal plants, berries, and whatever vegetables we are growing. We keep the farm side separate but if you are interested we can let you know when we have workshops or farm tours available.

Please do not harvest, except when you come to a harvest retreat or experience.

Our farm is a sustainable living center. Our lifestyle and living structures promote sustainability in every area: self-composting toilets, outdoor showers, eating off the land, drinking artesian spring water.

Our area is remote and rustic and calls for a back-to-nature mindset.

Other things to note

No cell reception, enable WiFi-calling before you start your trip if you want to use your phone.

We have a brand-new private hot shower and you are still welcome to enjoy the beautiful outdoor forest shower located at the sauna, a short walk away. You have your own yard separated from the neighboring Bear Hut with a large privacy fence.
You have a sink and a grill here.

The outdoor self-composting toilet is a commonplace shared with the neighboring Bear Hut- located behind the Medicinal Garden which is also shared.

You have a simple camping bucket toilet to use at night if you wish to instead of the outdoor

the self-composting toilet, but please make sure to clean it daily if you use it.
