About the Labrynth
Walk the garden labrynth or sit and watch butterflies search for nectar. Its a great space to sit and contemplate on the natural world.
We have two areas to enjoy warmth of a fire during cool evenings. Have a bonfire in our fire pit or sit comfortably around a fireplace.
There are many hammocks and fountains scattered throughout the property for the guests to relax or just hang out.
The outdoor composting toilet is a novelty of interest among our guests. As we divert organics and high nutrients from our water supply and landfills we help other creatures on this planet from getting destroyed due to environmental impact of these organics in the water system.
