The SpaceThe Renewal House has 4 bedrooms, which can accommodate up to 8 guests. This is a truly unique combination of a gorgeous location with the option to learn about many aspects of sustainable living…connecting to the Earth and one another.
Out the door are 30 acres of fields, forest and ponds to explore…walking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, star gazing, camp firing. In the growing season you can wander across the driveway and buy just-harvested produce, and maybe even help around the farm if you wish. On the farm we raise over 250 varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs, happy hens and are surrounded by neighboring vineyards. Come on a festival weekend for a harvest dinner and barn dance!
Also available to rent are two large gathering spaces for meetings, parties, weddings, workshops and special events. Guest AccessIn addition to comfortable sleeping quarters, guests have full access to kitchen, living room, dining areas, full and half baths and laundry facilities. Beautiful shady decks offer 3 season outdoor relaxation. Interaction with GuestsYour stay will be hosted by Deborah, who lives nearby and provides any assistance you may need.
Several farm-based educators live and work on the farm. You may see people working or relaxing in the gardens, orchard, garage, barn and shed. We will typically give you your privacy but feel free to say hello if you wish to connect.
Farm tours and immersions are available for a fee upon request. Come learn about:
- Ecological fruit and vegetable production
- Culinary and medicinal herb growing and uses
