This place is *so* unique - in the city, surrounded by magic. We especially appreciated the art, plants, "shell-ter", and the amazing hot tub with a view of the bridge. We felt cozy and happy in the hut - it's small, nestled in the earth, and feels indescribably energetically…

I'm a settled-down traveler who found a gem of hidden land on the edge of the city--land that wants to be shared. I raise my family, tend the land and work in the community. Artist, herbalist, permaculturist, teacher and writer.
Interaction with guests
I love to make tea and breakfast from the gardens and grounds if you desire. Our family spends a lot more time outside than in, and we love an excuse to have a fire, so if you want to be one of the family you are most welcome. That said, the hut is your private zone, and we do…
