    Good Host
  • Description


    This is a homestead, on the side of a mountain, off grid and remote. We have power provided by a small solar system and a wind generator. There is hot and cold running water and a washing machine on site. There is also WiFi as power allows.

    Your stay here would require 4 hours of work daily Monday through Friday in exchange for lodging and three meals a day Monday through Friday.

    Duties vary but would consist of tasks necessary to keep up the gardens, tend goats and chickens, fencing projects, and building and maintenance of farm structures.

    The view here is amazing and the National Forest is within walking distance. I also provide transportation to and from many local camping sites to enjoy in your off time and can loan gear if needed.

    The farm is always a work in process as is life. It is located in North Central Washington State and the closest town of Tonasket is 27 miles away. I live in a small cabin. There are goats, chickens, dogs and cats.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can share how I have developed towards being self sufficient living off grid for 11+ years. The challenges and triumphs. I am in no way a permaculture expert but have studied quite a bit about the practices. Perhaps you have taken a PDC and have need of a place to practice?

  • Help


    For the spring/summer 2021, I am continuing to build terraces up the hill which will involve a lot of raking, moving rocks and digging. Another project will be moving solar panels to the wind generator tower and digging a trench for the wiring. We are building a new and improved goat barn and posibly converting a van to a living space. There will always be a wide variety of daily activities caring for the animals and gardens, maintaining the dirt roads and working on and in the cabin. Mostly all the tasks will require the ability to lift heavy things, go up and down ladders and walk up and down uneven ground.

  • Accommodation


    There is a small cabin with guest space in the loft, a travel trailer and plenty of tent space depending how you would wish to sleep. Power is from a simple solar system and wind generator and there is WiFi when power allows. We live very rural and some might say a bit on the primitive side. This is a homestead on the side of a mountain in the middle of nowhere. There are animals both domestic and wild.

    I can prepare a wide variety of meals depending on dietary needs. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will be provided Monday thru Friday. I am negotiable on this and will happily make accommodations and amendments as needed.
