Writers, artists, musicians, naturalists, social and environmental activists, families, students, travelers, outdoor enthusiasts, and people needing a respite from the buzz of life will enjoy the peace and wonder of our solar homestead and forest.
Good things to know about our home Our house is sun powered using solar panels. Each room has one electrical outlet that runs off an inverter to power certain regular devices such as a laptop computer, cell phone charger and small CPAPs. Let us know if you need to use an appliance with a larger electrical demand such as a hairdryer or iron and we will turn on the generator for you. Because the house is not hooked up to the grid (public utilities) and depends on sunlight and battery storage to power our electrical needs, we pay attention to turning off lights when they're not in use.
Our kitchen does not offer a dishwasher. (Did you know that washing dishes by hand offers a great opportunity to practice mindfulness?) We also do not have a microwave. We have an efficient gas range for cooking and baking needs.Radiant heat, produced by a wood-fired boiler located just outside of our living space, serves as our primary heating system. We also have a highly efficient indoor wood stove for taking away a chill during the warm season or for providing the ambiance of a dancing fireWe love visits from families. We ask parents to guide children in caring for our home. This means distinguishing between outdoor and indoor play, using napkins at meal times, picking up toys, and being considerate of other guests.
Out of consideration for guests with asthma, chemical sensitivities and those who just appreciate the smell of fresh air, we ask people to refrain from applying perfume, heavy deodorants and insect repellants until outside.
Fine Dining (about Meals Our nutrition comes from mostly organic locally grown foods. In the warm season, our meals are usually inspired by what's ripe in our garden. We love to cook (and eat) and are most always delighted to prepare meals for our guests. We offer a royal breakfast on weekends for $10 per person. Pablo's waffles made with fresh ground ingredients (and no wheat) are a favorite. We also offer main breakfast dishes of French toast, pancakes, omelets. We serve coffee (made from fresh ground locally roasted organic coffee beans) as well as tea, juice or cocoa. Let us know if you are interested and we will have breakfast ready at your requested time. When possible, during the week, (before we run off to work) we're happy to facilitate lighter breakfasts, such as fruit and yogurt, oatmeal or cream of rice, eggs and toast, priced at $5-7. We're happy--with advanced notice--to prepare a dinner meal, guided by our guest’s dietary needs or preferences. We ask for a contribution of $15 for each meal per person with an additional charge for alcoholic beverages. Often guests bring their own favorite beer or wine to round out a meal and we’re fine with this.
About the wood-fired hot tu Do you ever have trouble imagining what bliss is? Let a wood-fired hot tub remind you. Enjoy this incredibly soothing (even in extremely cold temperatures) outdoor experience. The tub enhances stargazing and one's ability to tune into the natural world, any time of day. We need two days notice before you arrive. This is how long it takes for us to prepare the hot tub for you. Gravity filling from our stream takes about five hours and bringing it up to temperature (102-108 degrees Fahrenheit or 38-42 degrees Celsius) can take up to 12 hours depending on how cold it is outside. Maintaining the right temperature requires careful tending. Because of what’s involved in the process, we ask for an additional fee of $75 for the first use and $25 for additional uses. For hygienic reasons, we request showering before use. Guests are encouraged to spend their departure day out hiking trails and enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings. We do ask that you vacate your room and reload your car between 10 and 11 am. This gives us time to prepare rooms and the house for next guests. All questions about our unique homestead are welcome. We thank you in advance for speaking up about your needs. We look forward to sharing this beautiful place with you.Sincerely, Valerie Piedmont and Pablo Fleischmann
