The SpaceThe host is the internationally known Wittgenstein and Laozi scholar K. T. Fann. After retiring in 1995 from teaching philosophy in York University in Toronto, he returned to his native village and turned an abandoned 1 hectre ancestral farm into an organic retirement paradise. He designed and built a unique six-sided home flanked by two guest rooms, all with large windows allowing full views of the seasonal changes of the picturesque scenery outside. He planted many century-old trees; more than 100 kinds of fruit trees and flowering plants. He keeps and breeds all kinds of rare parrots and some of them are flying free and will land on guests' shoulders. There are chickens, ducks, geese, fowls, peacocks, rabbits, etc. running free. He also keeps honeybees and collects his own honey and pollen.
The property is surrounded on three sides by a river and shaped like a thumb, thus named Thumb-up retreat. On one side there is a glass pagoda and on the other side a scenic washroom with an open view to the river. There is a lily pond and a fish pond on the premise. In addition, there is a treehouse where guests are invited to have special fresh cinnamon leaf tea. Recently, a wood-firing pizza and bread oven and a ceramic kiln were built. He does everything by hand and is completely self-sufficient in food. All in all he has created his own Taoist paradise and lives a life of simplicity in harmony with nature. You are welcomed to come experience it yourself. Guest Access
