    We're beginning a Glamping/Artistic/Yoga Retreat Project. It is at the very beginning stage. There is a small cabin that needs to be finished as a main residence. It is a beautiful 20acre property with incredible views and quiet privacy. At this moment it is off-grid. There is currently electric power (when needed) from small generator. Nearby are wonderful places to hike, and many lakes for kayak,SUP, fishing. The area is great for mountain biking or adventure motorcycling.Hiking. Nearby Canada has some epic nature areas. Cliff jumping, waterfalls. There is also really good rock climbing in the area.

  • Accommodation


    At the moment we'll be able to provide accommodation in a tent..or cabin if space available. I have two very large tents that can be used privately or for small group.. there is an outhouse. Water situation in the beginning will be like camping. First project is to get the main cabin up and running.. I will provide basic cooking supplies (rice, beans, etc.). As my schedule allows I will offer full cooked meals ( at least 1/day).

    If someone is traveling in a motorhome/van they are more than welcome to park it on the land.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Time off can be spent exploring the area. farmers market in town.crossing over to explore the Canadian side. lakes for fishing, hiking, or relaxing on the land.

    The land is located 25 minutes drive from nearest town. Pick-ups and drop-offs can be coordinated. Rides in to town when available.

    Cel. phone service/Internet access can be limited. Depending on your provider. we will be working on connecting to internet via satellite in the future if necessary . In the meantime, Cricket has the best signal for this area and offer 4G Canadian roaming on entire property. If you get Cricket Unlimited pre-paid plan you'll be set ($55/month)

    We're laid back and hardworking..we do however love music and enjoying life..a couple of beers,some wine is fine within reason..This is definitely a place of peace, creativity and love. Hard partiers/drugs or people with difficult personalities should look elsewhere. We prefer Non Smokers (especially chemical cigarettes) *Ganja ok within reason* Need mature responsible, hard working people to have a great time and make some magic happen!*️️️️️️️️️️️️

    Would prefer to start off with a 1-2 week trial period. After that can be long term.

    Happy Travels!
