The SpaceThe Yome is furnished with the following:
A comfortable futon bed that sleeps two
A table with two chairs
A comfortable chair and stool
Two deck chairs
candle holders (bring a few extra candles!)
There is a simple outdoor kitchen outside for summer guests only! Fall/winter guests may boil water on the wood stove and use our picnic basket of plates/cutlery (provided you do your dishes!).
Future dreams for the Yome: We hope to build a 4-seasons outdoor kitchen soon!
FOR WINTER VISITORS: we have installed a wood-stove, and we train our fall/winter guests how to use it and provide all firewood needed during your stay. While the woodstove will heat up the space once bringing well you should be prepared for a camping-like experience as the wood stove is the only heat source.
There are several optional add-ons such as a bath/shower in the farmhouse, a shuttle from the bus station, and more. See "Other Things to Note" for more details.
1 set of clean sheets and warm blankets
1 complimentary bag of firewood
a drinking water dispenser, and access to more when it runs out. (Because we produce organic salad greens on our farm our water is UV filtered and very safe to drink.)
- a map of the farm and surrounding area
- access to 2 bikes upon request ( we are close to the Cataract trail)
-For summer guests only: A simple outdoor kitchen with two burner stove, wash tubs, and basic cooking supples/dishes. Guest AccessYou will be given a map so you can tour the farm whenever you like, and a list of things that you can do close-by. The Yome does not have electricity but you will have access to water, a compost toilet, a double bed, and a futon bed that sleeps 2. Guests after 4 will be offered sleeping mats (we have 3). The Yome sleeps about 10 if you use the floor. Interaction with GuestsWe try to set it up so that you can find the Yome and settle in without our help (there are instructions and farm-maps when you arrive) but we love to say hello to all our guests and are happy to answer any questions, (we always keep our phone on us if we are not at the farm)! Our Farm is a magical place, we hope you enjoy it! The NeighborhoodThe Cataract Trail
