Our No. 1 policy is respect for the land and its dwellers. We ask that visitors make everyone's stay more comfortable by respecting the following guidelines:

  • Reservations: A one-night deposit is required at the time of reservation for all short stays. This deposit is refundable up to two weeks prior to planned arrival.  - Longer stays, group reservations and wedding reservations pay a 25% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking, or as individually arranged.
  • Room Tax: A 9% room tax gets added to all room charges.
  • Extra guests can be added to each dwelling for  $45/person (children up to 12 years pay $35/ea.) Breakfast is included. Children 5 and under are free. Please bring your own sleeping bag.
  • Minimum Stay. It takes a couple of days to settle into the pace of the land. Therefore a  2-night minimum is required.
  • Quiet Time. To accommodate all of our guests, as well as our neighbors and the County Ordinance, our quiet time begins at 10 pm.  Amplified music is allowed until 10 pm, soft acoustic music until midnight. We ask for silence after midnight.
  • Pet Policy. We have adopted a "no pet policy" for our Retreat, which the band of Wild Turkeys, the flock of Quail, the occasional Pheasant, as well as our own chatty Chickens - and of course our own village dog "Chief Ollokot" (for short "Olli") all appreciate very much! Please talk to us if you seek an exception.
  • Smoking and Fire. We have a no-smoking policy in effect for the retreat. Fire regulations are strict, and open flames are confined to the official fire pit only. If there should be smokers at events, please us our designated smoking area only. Absolutely NO flames in the forest.
  • Alcohol. Bring your own wine and beer. No hard liquor, please!


When the white man discovered this country, Indians were running it.
No taxes, no debt, women did all the work.
White man thought he could improve on a system like this.
