YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS ARE SURROUNDED BY NATURE!   The Log Cabin and Farmhouse cottage are surrounded by thousands of acres of pristine wilderness. You can walk right into Shades State Park and Pine Hills Nature Preserve for 6,000 acres of unspoiled beauty and hiking.  Star gazing and bird-watching are highly recommended! The farm house has an open field and a huge garden!

     *The Rustic Log Cabin can accommodate 8-10 people in three bedrooms with a modern kitchen and two updated baths.  For this retreat we will limit the number to 5-6 people in the log cabin.   There is a cozy fireplace, yoga loft, wrap around porch, and a large 24 x 24 patio for lounging and stargazing in one of the darkest spots in the Midwest.

     *The Farmhouse can accommodate 8 people in 2 bedrooms with a modern kitchen and two full baths.  For this retreat we will limit that number to 5-6 people.  There is a gorgeous wood burning stove and a 16 x 12 screened porch with plenty of room to stretch out. 

If the these two spaces fill up we will add one more huge old farmhouse to accommodate 5-7 more people!    

  After that, we are full so don't wait to get your application in!

We will also have access to a yoga pavilion with beautiful evening lights and draping to keep the bugs at bay!

Each day will begin with optional yoga, breakfast, hiking, exploring or just relaxing in the beautiful setting.  We are watching the weather for our special meditative walk (Shinrin-Yoku) and exploration of edible and medicinal wild plants led by the knowledgeable Naturopathic doctor Gabriel!   Turkey Run State Park is nearby for those who want to venture out.  Each evening will wind down with relaxing yoga after dinner and a beautiful campfire to sit around with friends and new acquaintances.
