What makes this house unique
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.'
Henry David Thoreau
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a short note to let you know how MUCH we enjoyed our stay at your amazing getaway. Everyone was super impressed by all the amazing greenery and touches with fresh flowers in every room was truly special. The fire pit and the outside tub were particular favorites. We would love to come and stay again next year if you are still renting the property out :o)
The fresh veggies, eggs,inspiring recycling plan, and really cool dishes were totally awesome and make the place a true home away from home!
Have a great summer, and hope to see you again in 2013
