Located in the Brushy Mountains, a spur of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The mostly wooded 40 acres encompasses walking trails, a beautiful stream, swimming pond, sauna, organic gardens and more. This is a multi-purpose facility, occasionally hosting a small number of artists, writers, couchsurfers, farm interns and folks who just need to take a deep breath and relax.
Facilities are clean, rustic and welcoming but posh we are not.
