Literally, I contracted and did some work to build my home with my then husband with all natural building materials. And that’s a good story that I would love to share with you.

First choose a package or let me help you customize your optimal wellness stay

I offer 2 rooms and pictured above is The Green Room, which is perfect for 1-2 people. There is a super comfortable double bed over looking the woods and vegetable gardens on the east side of my passive solar ECO-FRIENDLY home. You will sleep on organic sheets and pillows. Organic and natural shampoos, soaps, and cotton towels are provided. My home has its own well. The well water is wonderful and comes out of every faucet and shower.

This room as well as the master bedroom suite across the hall is well suited for Eco-conscious people who use Eco-friendly products and/or want a gourmet getaway to learn, enhance, and enjoy sustainable living and natural lifestyle. If you already use natural products, you will be given priority for booking.

Gardens are organic with many native, wild and organic berries for you to enjoy all summer long: blueberries, raspberries and black raspberries. Leslie cooks and teaches from her permaculture-based organic vegetable, herb and edible flower gardens. And there are numerous perennial organic flower gardens, ferns, and in spring blooming lilac and forsythia bushes all around the home. Leslie fills vases of flowers and places them all around the home for your enjoyment and pleasure.

Hiking trails out the door. Perfect for winter snow shoeing. Excellent biking, swimming, cross country and down hill skiing nearby, too.

Pricing: $185/night for 2 people with delicious Deluxe organic vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free brunch/breakfast. And a basic organic breakfast for 2 for this room for $160. Minimum stay is 2 nights.

Setting, the woods, was extraordinarily beautiful, peaceful and quiet. House was lovely. Leslie was very nice, extremely accommodating and flexible. We arrived hours early but that was no problem for her. We stayed in the master bedroom suite and Leslie gave us The Green Room for our daughter in response to our last minute request. Leslie went out of her way to accommodate us.
