Folk Tree Lodge Philosophy: Our philosophy
At the Folk Tree Lodge we celebrate Mother Earth.
We consider ourselves as temporary keepers of this land and we pride ourselves in being low-impact on the environment. Recycling activities are part of our daily life. We ask you to be a part of our project of preserving native vegetation and fully respecting the wildlife.
We are constantly developing new designs to find harmonic ways of living in the nature around us.
We experiment organic gardening, we plan for future and sustainable energy sources, we learn everyday observing the rhythm of nature.
I grew up in the middle of an apple orchard in Northern Italy and at sunset my chore was to walk the dogs. The scent of the blossoming apple trees, the song of the birds and the taste of those apples are memories that brought me here.
I recognize that everyday life takes lots of energy to be lived and we all need time to unplug and connect with nature. My everyday challenge is to create the perfect environment for my clients, to offer a good service and an opportunity to create a connection between them and the wonderful nature surrounding them.
We moved from Italy in 2000, attracted by the beauty of the natural surroundings. We bought this property in 2005, it was the perfect place to expand our passion for sustainable living.
One of the cabins was built in 1954 and the other one in 1982.Both have been completely renovated and following our 'artistic' mind, we have been able to create a unique environment where our clients are surrounded by the beauty of nature inside and outside.
Folk Tree Lodge is a special place. It is:
A place to hide away for a weekend,
A place to snuggle up with your special One.
A place to sit around the fire sharing laughter and stories.
A place to relax and listen to the music of the forest.
A place to admire the moon, rising between the branches.
A place to watch the peaceful snow fall.
A place for sharing very treasured moments with family and friends.
The Folk Tree Lodge is your secret place!
