During most warm months advance bookings for weekends are only available as two-night stays. If you're looking at a single weekend night that's just around the corner, go ahead and call anyway, because if it's not yet rented we'll sure consider a single-night booking.
If you choose, we are happy to provide you with a homegrown and homemade organic breakfast at the time of your choosing. You can stay in your jammies and just fetch the breakfast basket when you're ready - the food is almost-ready to eat, so you get to finish it off in the sweet kitchen there in the cabin and enjoy breakfast on your own.
Tasting the food of this land is a delicious part of being here. It might be fresh homemade bread and jam, apple or wild grape juice, applesauce, fresh eggs, garden vegetables in season, jonnycakes and maple syrup...whatever it is, it'll be made of fresh ingredients from our garden, orchard, sugarbush, root cellar, and neighborhood. (except for the organic fair trade shade grown coffee!)
Optional breakfast for one person: $15. Two people: $20. Three people: $25. Four people: $30.
One Way to Save a Little:
You can bring your own sheets and towels, and we'll take $5 off for two people or $10 off for 3 or more people. (There's an ecological advantage to bringing your own, as we imagine you'll reuse them many times before washing again, whereas we of course wash in between each guest). If you're planning to do this, please let us know ahead of time.
Check In and Check Out Time
We are flexible. If there aren't other guests arriving the night before or after you, you can come as early and leave as late as you like. If there is another guest's schedule to consider, we'll make a plan that works for all.
If you are renting the log house, you can set up tents and put people in them for $25/night.
In keeping with our philosophy of responsible stewardship of this land and home, we ask the following of our guests:
Payment Method and Cancellations
It’s old-fashioned, just like the house!
You can make a reservation as far in advance as you’d like, and then just pay with check or cash before you leave. We trust you.
Please call at least a month ahead if you have to change your plans. If you have to cancel last-minute, we'll do our best to contact others who had asked for the same slot and offer it to them; if we can fill it, we won't ask you to pay.
Have you heard the term “WTT?” It stands for “Willing to Trade,” and we are. We are part of the growing barter economy, in which people decide amongst themselves what their offerings are worth in trade. When it comes to barter, there are many possibilities – you don’t know until you ask! Once you stop to think about it for a while, you have many worthwhile things to offer, whether they be services, goods, or anything else.
Bartering seems to generate joyous splashes of generosity. Barterers find that there is abundance, and plenty to share!
Working Around Our Place for Trade
Some people like having a bit of physical work to do, even when they’re relaxing. My dad is like that. If you would like to barter your labor for time in the log cabin, talk to us about it! If you live around here, you could come work at a different time from your get-away time. Or, you could work while you’re renting the cabin, to have fun and to lower your money-cost.
Some examples of things you might do around here, depending on your experience and desires and depending on the season:
Cutting and splitting firewood, mowing, gardening, cleaning, carpentry, trail clearing, garlic mustard hunting and removal (we have kept this highly invasive plant out of these woods so far, by diligence and care. If you like walking in the woods and pulling plants, come in April or May and we’ll go out hunting with you.)
Please tell us ahead of time if you are interested, so that we can see if there’s some work at the time you want to come. We can’t promise that there will always be something to do that matches your skills, but we’d like to try and we appreciate the help!
