The SpaceMY INTENTION: For me, timber framed houses, with exposed wooden beams, are living, breathing spaces where we can rest from a world of plastic and metal. The places where we house ourselves and our families are alive. They embrace us, they protect us, they nourish us, and, if we are lucky, they inspire us. We interact with them, and our interactions imbue them with energy that, in turn, creates more or less harmony in our minds and our bodies. This is the essence of Vasta Shastra, the Indian approach to creating living spaces with the intention of nourishing and inspiring us. Like the Feng Shui of China, it is a philosophy of life grounded in a deep understanding of how the spaces in which we live affect our health - mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Basically, while it is true that Serenity is simply a physical building listed on AirBNB, it is also more than that. It is a place to relax and rejuvenate. It is a place where you create a restful vacation for yourself in a peaceful rural setting, comfortable in the knowledge that there is someone around 24/7 to answer questions or help you if you need it. I encourage everyone who stays here to let me know what they when they need it and to do so while they are here (as opposed to telling me in a review after they leave) so that they can have the best experience possible. Most inconveniences can be easily corrected, if I am alerted to their presence in real time. THE SETTING: Serenity sits on just over four acres, of wooded land, with Ganesh Gardens, a profusion of cultivated flower and herb beds spilling out on the hill behind it. At the base of the slope is a lovely pond, inhabited by peepers, frogs, turtles, and visited by deer, ducks, and, when we are lucky, a beautiful grey heron. Like Serenity, I experience Ganesh Gardens as a nourishing and soothing place to be. There are spaces to meditate, or just hang out and talk. There are medicinal herbs, and flowers, and I'm happy to teach people how to identify herbs or prepare native plants for a meal. Serenity is not alone on the land. A smaller timber-framed guest house is connected to Serenity by a small entrance room. This building is used by HeartSong Health In Community, a small nonprofit naturopathic organization, to provide holistic primary medical care to local residents. HeartSong is a quiet, easy-going clinic, serving no more than 10-15 people per week. Guests at Serenity are also welcome to make appointments, and various naturopathic spa services are available, upon request: Infrared sauna, craniosacral therapy, colon hydrotherapy, yoga therapy, marma therapy (Ayurvedic energy work), a therapeutic jacuzzi, and, our latest addition, an amazing massage in an electric chair like nothing any of us have every seen before -- the Daiwa Legacy from Japan. In addition to Serenity and HeartSong on the main floor of the two houses, there is a sound-proofed apartment in the basement which I use only as my sleeping quarters when guests are at Serenity. THE BUILDING: Physically, Serenity is 1750 square foot traditionally pegged post-and-beam house built around a 12 foot chimney and hearth. This means that wooden pegs, rather than nails, are used to construct the frame and all structural beams are exposed beneath wood paneled cathedral ceilings with skylights. All flooring is solid wood (oak downstairs; pine upstairs), as are all furnishings. LAY-OUT: There is a kitchen, living/dining room, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, plus a sun room where you can sleep under the stars during spring, summer and early fall. A deck complete with outdoor grill and deck chairs also overlooks Ganesh Gardens. KITCHEN: The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, blenders, food processor, waffle iron, dishes, pots and pans, cooking and eating utensils. The kitchen is stocked with tea and coffee Keurig cups and a Keurig machine, common herbal mixes, salt, pepper, and a range of other staples that previous guests have left, such as flour and sugar. BEDROOMS: There are three bedrooms, each with a double bed, dresser for your possessions, blanket boxes for linens, several lamps, and a writing table. The upstairs rooms also have individual refrigerators. Master Bedroom: Upstairs, the master bedroom is doubled-sized. Loft Room: Also upstairs, another has a large loft where the futon mattress has been placed under the skylight, leaving a full-sized room free for your use. The loft room is a favorite choice for teens and young adults, but is not recommended for young children unless they are accompanied by an adult. There is plenty of room for two -- the loft itself extends 20 feet along the length of the ceiling and is kept warm and toasty with the chimney as a side wall. The two upstairs room share a bathroom. Accessible Room: The first-floor bedroom is directly off the living room, and is wheelchair accessible with direct access into one bathroom. SUNROOM: Located off the dining room, this room has double futon bed, with glass on all three exterior walls, in addition to the interior wall, plus a glass ceiling. It's fabulous if you'd like to gaze at the stars while in bed or wake up to a blue sky with clouds drifting by and the branches of a lilac tree nuzzling the window next to your bed. Roll down bamboo curtains provide privacy from the dining area. LIVING ROOM: The living room has a fireplace and a woodstove. The house is heated with the woodstove which I manage due to insurance requirements. I am available 24/7 to get the woodstove started up for you. There is also a fireplace where you can light your own fires at any time. ENTRY: Shoes are not worn in the house; there are slippers available if you need them, as well as thick clean socks. There is a covered porch and small interior room for storing shoes, sports equipment, plus a pocketbook library for your use while at Serenity or to trade in the book you just finished for another. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: Beds have futon mattresses with memory foam and hypoallergenic mattress covers, 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, and 100% cotton quilts. Additional linens provided are 100% cotton blankets or snuggly fleece blankets. Guest AccessWhether you’re interested in a quiet spot to get away from the busy-ness of your daily life, a unique place to experience a personal healing retreat, or a great place to stay while you tour Southern New England (New Hampshire and Massachusetts are just minutes away), Serenity and Ganesh Gardens offer rural quietude and privacy while maintaining easy access to I-91, the main throughway to all points north and south in New England. I value my guests' privacy. So I offer a thorough introduction to the house upon each guest group's arrival and then I leave you to create the kind of holiday you desire, and let you decide for themselves if you would like to initiate further interactions with me. The facility itself permits different degrees of privacy to guests, depending upon their preferences. Communally oriented guests prefer to leave the connecting doors between Serenity, HeartSong, and/or the basement apartment open, and seek social interaction with me (the owner), either sharing meals or socializing in the gardens or on the deck. People seeking more privacy prefer to keep all doors to Serenity closed. As your host, you are encouraged to seek and experience whatever level of privacy you would like. I leave all invitations for socialization up to the discretion of the guest. Likewise, people coming to HeartSong for naturopathic services do not interact with Serenity guests unless the guests themselves initiate a conversation. Located just about equidistant between Greenwood School, Landmark College, and Putney School, Serenity is also a great place for friends and family of students at any of these educational institutions to stay while visiting or attending graduations. You have full and sole access to the entire house. I live in a separate apartment downstairs so the space is completely yours, except for when I need to manage the woodstove or water plants. You won't have to do a thing in the winter but enjoy the luxurious heat of our Vermont Castings Vigilant woodstove after a day of skiing, hiking, or sight-seeing. You have full access to Ganesh Gardens, including the pond, 24/7 and you don't have to wear a bathing suit for any moonlight or daytime swimming that you fancy. I do ask that all children going into the gardens be accompanied by an adult, whether it be to swim or just to hunt for frogs. There is a hammock and a floating lounge chair for use in the pond, and outdoor rugs for doing stretches or yoga under a canopy of trees, plus a meditation stone seat in front of a Buddha statue for personal contemplation. Hundreds of outdoor lights trim the main pathways so you can get around safely at night, although you may want to also bring your own flashlight. Ganesh Gardens were created in 2012 and are still under development. If you like to garden, feel free to join in with any suggestions and/or if you have plants you'd like to see in the gardens when you come to stay, your can bring them along and we'll add them to the gardens. I'm still experimenting to find the best perennials that will come back year after year, as I hope you will! See under The Neighborhood for a suggestion about where to get a plant if you'd like to leave a piece of yourself at Serenity forever when you leave! Interaction with GuestsAll guests are invited to participate in an optional orientation upon arrival. I developed this in response to the multitude of questions that guests often ask about rural living at Serenity, such as where to buy local produce, how to use the internet, what to do in a power outage, how is a septic system different from city plumbing, etc. During this orientation, I give guests a tour of the entire facility to help them situate themselves in the building as a whole, and help them know where to find me if they need help or where to find doors to close or open if they would like more or less privacy . I am available on site 24/7 to answer questions on an as needed basis. Once you are here, I will only enter Serenity to maintain the fire in winter, upon your request, to water plants year-round, empty trash and recycling (for longer stays), turn off lights left on when guests are out of the house, and do any necessary repairs and/or maintenance tasks. I try to do all of this when you are out of the house as much as possible. The NeighborhoodSerenity is the one of only a handful of places where guests can find lodging within walking distance of Putney Village. Located just over a mile from the General Store, guests can enjoy a quiet rural setting yet still only be a 20 minute walk from town or a 5 minute drive from I-91. SAFETY: Serenity is located on a small private road, which branches off Friendship Loop, a three mile walk frequented by local residents. The area is quiet and safe for walking or biking at any time of day or night. PUTNEY: Putney Village is a mile from Serenity, and boasts the oldest continously operating general store in Vermont as well as one of the best local food co-ops in Southern Vermont. The General Store houses a pharmacy as well as a great sandwich and coffee bar. The Putney Food Co-Op has a great selection of organic produce and staples, as well as a great deli. We have a wide variety of restaurants, including the Gleanery, a community supported restaurant project that creates yummy meals using excess produce from local farms, JD McCliment's Pub, where you can enjoy a meal or a good brew outside on a warm summer's evening, the Putney Diner, with a range of good wholesome no frills standard American fare, and Curtis' BBQ, serving ribs and chicken cooked over an open fire and eaten outside. As an arts community, there are many sources of local entertainment to enjoy, such as free concerts on the green by the town hall and the Yellow Barn Music Festival in the summer, plays all year round at Next Stage Arts Project and many local artists have studios at home you can visit. The annual Putney Craft Tour every fall is a great time to see all the local crafts right in the spaces where they are created. For a small town, we keep ourselves remarkably active. Go to the Discover Putney website ((URL HIDDEN) to read more about what's in store for you at exit 4 off of 1-91. The exit for Putney and just around the corner from Serenity. PRODUCE: About 5 miles south is an absolutely wonderful farm that sells great produce in season, and beautiful flowers and plants. If you decide you'd like to leave a bit of yourself at Serenity when you leave, you can purchase a perennial there and help me put it into the Garden in your memory. BEYOND: Putney is located 8 miles north of Brattleboro, Vermont, the largest town in southern Vermont, and 30 miles west of Keene, New Hampshire. Getting AroundPUBLIC TRANSPORT: Public transportation is limited in Southern Vermont, although you can walk to Putney Village in about 20 minutes. SERVICES: You can find almost anything you would want at the General Store or the Putney Food Co-Op. There are two banks with ATMs and, a post office, and a bus that travels both north and south twice a day, and of course, you will be staying next to the only medical clinic that has a physician on site 24/7, so if you don't have a car, you can still take care of yourself quite well while at Serenity. Other Things to NoteROOM TAX: As per Vermont tax law, there is a 9% room tax applied to this rental. The tax is INCLUDED in the posted rate. ACCESSIBILITY: The entrance to Serenity is ADA-compliant and there is an ADA-compliant bathroom at HeartSong and a first floor bedroom with an attached bathroom (although this bathroom is not ADA compliant) for any physically disabled guests. Differently abled children and adults are welcome and any special accommodations necessary to facilitate their stay will be provided if possible, as long as I have advance notice of what is required. HERBS: You will have access to unlimited quantities of herbal teas, both dried and fresh from the garden, while you are at Serenity. NATURAL HEALTH & SPA SERVICES: Since Serenity shares the property with HeartSong Health In Community, the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit naturopathic medical clinic in the United States, you may want to avail yourself of natural medicine and spa services for additional fees (per service): marma therapy (Ayurvedic energy work), craniosacral therapy, infrared sauna, yoga therapy, hydrotherapy (walk-in jacuzzi tub and colon hydrotherapy), and naturopathic consultations. HEALTHY LIFESTYLE SUPPORT: Heartsong also offers Firstline Therapy, a certified nutrition-based lifestyle modification program for improved weight, blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure management. COLONICS: It is the only facility that offers colon hydrotherapy using the Angel of Water appliance in Vermont. AYURVEDA & BLOODTYPE MEDICINE: HeartSong is the only clinic offering personalized bloodtype and/or Ayuvedic medical consultations in Southern Vermont. SERVICE AVAILABILITY: Services for Serenity guests are offered weekends and holidays, during the day or in the evening. HEALTH INSURANCE: Many services are covered by health insurance plans that include naturopathic medical care; this includes all Vermont Health Connect Plans, including Medicaid. NATURAL PHARMACY: HeartSong's natural apothecary carries nutritional supplements and herbal medicines made from plants in Ganesh Gardens. It also offers great high protein meal replacement bars for your days on the road, as well as an effective natural tick repellant for those of you who would like to take extra precaution to prevent tick bites. Lyme disease is endemic in our county, as in many other counties in Vermont. However, with proper precautions, you should feel free to enjoy your time in Vermont without worry of contracting the disease, especially with a Lyme-literate physician living and working right on the grounds where you are staying!

The NeighborhoodIt's important for our guests to know that the schoolhouse is located right on a road--as schoolhouses generally were! Behind you are miles of trails, fields and forest, but you will hear cars and see headlights. The bedroom is at the back of the building, removed from the road, and is both quiet and private. Directly out the back door are miles of trails and many acres of agricultural land. There is easy access to groomed cross-country skiing and mountain biking and a swimming hole around the corner.

The SpaceWelcome to the Skunk Barn Farm field and forests ~~~ .... At the bottom of the field, and over-hearing the Canoe Brook, (you cant see it without walking to edge of wooded cliff) there is a 12 by 20 foot platform awaiting you and your tent. Fire pit is near. Recently a hemlock fell just off the deck and that will mean it is a bit more sunny and that there is firewood to be cut from the fallen tree. This is great because I had been finding that campers wanted firewood (ofcourse!) so I had been putting in time to make firewood for campers and therefore raised the price, and now have dropped it. If you are experienced with hatchet, ax and bowsaw, either bring yours or borrow mine. If you are inexperienced, and I have time, (not always the case) I will gladly train you. A hatchet, though small, is a dangerous thing. The woods are mature hardwood - birch, hickory, maple with some pines and hemlocks. If you have need of house facilities please let me know and I will add $10. I am also happy to provide a simple breakfast if you order it in advance and tell me your dietary needs. I can do vegan to bacon to raw! Again, sometimes I will be gone early working.... Extended stayers who experience lousy weather (cold and wet!)may request light use of the kitchen and bathroom. This does not mean lots of refridgerator space; it's small. Please plan on using a cooler for the majority of your perishables. (it's shady in the woods.) Light use does mean a short shower once per 2-3 days, and using kitchen for one simple meal per day. These visits will need to be scheduled, Thanks. I want others who may be here to feel comfortable. You would have access to the outhouse, of course, which is off the parking area near the house and to water. The field used to be a hay field and the house a hay barn. The stream is year round. Now the field is a sanctuary for insects and birds. Read: it is not heavily mowed. Tick prevention measures should be taken. There is great hiking, Nordic skiing, dirt road walking, ambling, stream dipping, and culvert cooling very close by. From your tent you will hear possibly, deer, birds, and the stream. To the north through the woods, are buildings where a family lives. I am on very good terms with these neighbors. Tent dwellers and they can't see each other but could hear each other so discretion is important. Putney (5miles by road, 2 - 3 through forest) is a happening little town; as is bigger Brattleboro to South. Able cyclists can do it in 40ish minutes there and 1.5 hours back. There is a bus via Rt 5, N/S Brat/Putney/BellowsFalls. I've hitched from my driveway but most, regrettably, drive their personal automobiles. Guest AccessGuests of over 5 nights can shower and use washing machine. Let me know if you think you'll want to. Interaction with GuestsIf I am around and you would like I often enjoy getting to know my guests a little bit. When it happens its fun. Sometimes we just wont cross paths that much. The NeighborhoodFriendly people and not very many. Trails, forest, streams, fields, sky. Dirt roads and pavement close-by. Birds, deer, skunks and foxes. Fortunately for my chickens, not too many predator visitors. That could change in an instant.... knock on wood. Getting AroundIt is quite easy to hitch from here into Putney from where there is a bus. It doesn't run that often. mornings and evenings; I think mostly weekdays. I'm about 3.5 miles by road to Putney town, 9 miles from Brattleboro. Neighbors bike commute to Brat.; Its a good climb back home. I have hitched to Putney and back.

The SpaceThis second floor apartment has seen a lot of Love. Two babies were born here! Built under the same roof as my house, on the West side of what was a hay barn, it still has a barnish feel. And you might, depending on the season pass by the chickens enroute to your country get-away. We call our farmette the Skunk Barn Farm, and have raised animals here, but these days mostly fruit, eggs, and vegies. I made a conscious choice not to spend thousands of dollars on a septic system so there are no flush toilets on the premises. If you like the idea of sharing the fertility of your manure in the outhouse then you'll enjoy being here. If you cant bear the thought of not having a flush toilet to whisk your feces away (where?) than you wont! There's a wood stove for heat, a gas stove for cookiing (its little but works great!) Tub/shower, nice hot water. A bed room, a big room with Kitchen /dining /living in mind, and bathroom, and a loft -- its little but two people could sleep there. There's a full bed in bedroom and a twin futon in the loft. I'm working on returning the chaise that you see in the pictures. I say 5 people could stay here cause some groups have wanted to gather and are willing to camp out on the floor. Groups over 2 or 3 should keep in mind that the resources of gas, wood, and electriciy to heat and light are precious and finite and are encouraged to make sustainable, conservative choices. I have 2 cats and 14 chickens. They are fab. Your dog has to be farm tested or kept on a leash. That's all i can think of for now.... Mas pronto nos vemos Greenough and the Skunk Barn Farm Guest AccessThe fields and woods and streams and dirt roads all around. Clothes washer for guests over 3 days. Clothes line inside and out. My South East facing deck is available to you when my house guests or myself are not at home. There are sticks leaning next to door to my house. Use these, by throwing them at bold chickens, to KEEP them OFF the deck. NEVER FEED the birds on the deck either. They will be a nuisance. They do not respond to verbal cues or polite requests! Please feel free to wander around the paths, field and gardens (such as they are this year....) Bring good tick repellent. Interaction with GuestsI am happy to visit with guests as they would like out in the yard, on my deck or in either domicile, as the guests see fit, and I have time. Usually it happens as we cross paths outside. When I'm around, I'm happy to answer questions and get to know people. Also I can give folks my cell number if they have questions when I'm working, sometimes I will be able to field them. Texting is best in that case. The NeighborhoodThe neighbor hood is quiet and rural. Very pretty. A little rarified, but we're doing our best to bring it down-home.... there are great people around but you dont see them too often. Getting AroundThere is a soso bus that travels N - S along route 5. Route 5 was the only way to travel N/S along the Connecticut River until Interstate 91 was built c. 50's. You'll see a bit of the river from I91, and all the other visitors. Route 5 is shorter (milieage) and more interesting. We are a 4ish mile assent from 5 and the town of Putney. I recommend hitching into town. Or biking. Or walking. I've used all methods. Other Things to NotePeople tend to really like it here. And not want to leave. Its true for me............

The SpaceIMPORTANT INFO FOLLOWS :^) My home is half of a small hay barn. the East half. Two floors. Two bedrooms, a sewing room/den, and bathroom make up the upstairs. First floor is a big downstairs with separate pantry/basin room and laundry room, Also a sun/plant room and a big deck. I made a conscious choice not to spend thousands of dollars on a septic system so there are no flush toilets on the premises. This saves 100s of gallons of water each month. If you like the idea of sharing the fertility of your manure in the outhouse then you'll enjoy being here. If you cant bear the thought of not having a flush toilet to whisk your feces away (where?) than you wont! There is a bidet for peeing in the bathroom, also a tub, a basin & a separate shower. It's a normal bathroom except that there's NO toilet. There IS Hot water, ahh what a luxury. And when the wood stove is running, we're heating water with wood! In the winter, the bedrooms are cool, even cold when we shut our doors to sleep or for privacy. I use a soapstone to warm my bed before getting in! There's one for you too. And I can provide a small elec heater for when you're hanging out in your room but you'll have to snuggle under the covers for the night. My house will be in various levels of disheveledness. I am a teacher of many and various groups and have materials for all of it. I love books and have quite a few. Your room will be simple, clean and tidy but I cant promise that my whole house will be. Welcome to my world! Guest AccessThe fields and woods and streams and dirt roads all around. Clothes washer for guests over 3 days. Clothes line inside and out. My South East facing deck, Living room, kitchen and bathroom. Please feel free to wander around the paths, field and gardens (such as they are this year....) Bring good tick repellent. And a flashlight. Interaction with GuestsVisiting / Telephone CI -- I am happy to visit with guests as they would like and I have time. We might be sharing the kitchen and downstairs, so there can be opportunity to say hello and get to know each other. This is one of the funnest part of receiving travelers. I totally enjoy learning about other people. But..... I do have a very demanding work schedule so some mornings, AND even evenings, I may not available to hang out with you. But when I do have leisure, I'm happy to visit, point you in directions you want to go, cook for/with you! I am very happy to report that sometimes guests who want to cook here have shared their repast, which is so nice! Folks like the awesome gas stove or using the wood stove... PHONES::: Once you've booked, Please use my cell number to text instead of the airbnb message system. I prefer calls to my house (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for voice messages and live question answering, so please try there first. Thanks!! The NeighborhoodLots of hiking near and far. woods, streams, hills, pastures, mountains... I have a folder of info for you to use. you can walk out the door. Or ski... or drive 2 - many miles to find all kinds of hiking. two fun towns nearby: Bellows Falls (with the cheapest and comfyest movie theater) and Brattleboro. North and South respectively along the Connecticut River. These days people use the roads. Route 5 / Interstate 91. I am a ten minute drive from Putney which is about 15 minutes from BF & Bratt. Getting AroundThe Amtrac train from NYC stops in both Bellows Falls & Brattleboro but Not in Putney. There's a commuter bus runs N/S through, and stops, in Putney. Not much service on weekends. Folks have hitched from here. Or walked. Or biked. Most drive. IF I am available and for a fee depending I can pick you up from the train. Other Things to NoteParking, bathroom, pets: Parking: Please part on the North side of house/barn. That area is flat. Leave room for a car to park next to you. And park facing out. In the winter when the plow comes we need to quickly move cars. Do not park on the South side unless you clear that with me. Sometimes its icy underfoot. BE CAREFUL. The bathroom has two doors. One to the den/hallway and the other, a sliding door to my bedroom. I often leave it open so that light shines in from my room to the bathroom. If you're using the bathroom, you can, of course, shut the door to my room. Open it again when you're done. Most people have not yet used a bidet as a place to pee. Everybody, including boys, needs to sit to pee so that urine is not splashed out of the dry bowl and stink the place up! After each use, the bidet needs to be rinsed. Either turn on the water with the handles or use water gleaned from the tub. You'll see yogurt containers on the corner. Use a whole container. THE BATHROOM LIGHTis on THE POST before you reach the door. One of my 2 cats has been known to seek out the attentions of guests when they are sleeping peacefully! Make sure the old-fashioned latch is secure or she will PUSH the door open. She has quite the PURRRR. Dogs sometimes work as visitors. Let's talk.

The SpaceMoon Rise Cottage is an intentionally created sacred space. It generates its own electricity with photo voltaic panels. The spot the house sits upon and the land surrounding the Cottage were specially chosen due to the vibration of the lay lines that run through white and rose quartz that abound just under the surface the property. These and other factors provide a deep sense of calm and quiet, along with a tangible vibrational essence that folks often notice and comment on spontaneously. I built the structure with a post and beam frame and toxin free 'living home' system. Walls are strawbale construction and all natural building materials. The 3 foot thick walls, and natural clay plaster give the cottage the feel of an old Irish homestead. Visitors often express amazement when they first experience the soft beauty and energetic quiet of the space. The cottage features reclaimed antique stained glass windows from a dismantled chapel. Moon Rise Cottage is a wonderful retreat ideal for artists, writers, or any person seeking the perfect setting for a quiet get away to feed the soul. Although you will be surrounded by forest while at Moon Rise Cottage shopping, restaurants, and most local interests including colleges and schools are within a short drive. This area is a haven for dozens of talented artists, musicians, and craft artisans - many of whom offer open studio hours and participate in Gallery Walk the first Friday of each month in and around Brattleboro. Outdoor recreational activities abound including hiking, waterfalls, state parks, kayaking, and river swimming. I have posted some ideas for outings and local culture in the photo section and guide book but I promise this just the tip of the iceberg! Due to the remote location cell service is spotty. My sprint phone works fine, Verizon should be ok....not sure about T-Mobile. They don't have a great track record in this area generally. Guest AccessGuests will have use of the meditation room, and living room/dining area, and their own guest bedroom. Moon Rise Cottage is also available for special events that are offered to assist anyone seeking a supported spiritual journey. Please be sure to ask about individualized sacred ceremonies, mandala creation, fire ceremonies, dream journeys, and intuitive psychic healing, or any other unique needs your heart may desire. Special events are fee based, please ask....I love hosting, and supporting your individual and unique spiritual journey. **Moon Rise Cottage and it's hostess are not affiliated with any specific religion. I honor the inner wisdom and traditions of every guest. Your personal journey is as unique and beautiful as you are. Interaction with GuestsI'll help you find the Cottage from Putney Village, and get you settled in. We'll chat about local destinations and directions, house rules, and any special requests you may have. Everyone has a story about life, and I am eager to hear yours and if you'd like, share (URL HIDDEN) quite a yarn ;} The NeighborhoodMoon Rise Cottage is set back in the woods with no visible neighbors. The most frequent sight is the hawks riding the thermal drafts of the ridge line, wild turkeys that saunter through the clearing, and an occassional fox, or doe with her fawn. Coyotes, bears, and other wonders of nature visit once in a while. You'll enjoy hearing the owls and coyotes call at night. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation available within walking distance....you will need a car. During winter months all wheel drive is pretty essential. Other Things to NoteI have painstakingly crafted Moon Rise Cottage by hand a little at a time over the past fifteen years. It is nearly finished but you will note that final touches such as boxing in of some plumbing in the bathroom and kitchen, and finish window trim, and a few other details are not yet complete.

Welcome to Serenity, a gorgeous post-and-beam house sharing 4 acres of woodland with Ganesh Gardens and HeartSong, a small natural health clinic. THE SPACE: For me, timber framed houses, with exposed wooden beams, are living, breathing spaces where we can rest from a world of plastic and metal. For me, the places where we house ourselves and our families are alive. They embrace us, they protect us, they nourish us, and, if we are lucky, they inspire us. We interact with them, and our interactions imbue them with energy that, in turn, creates more or less harmony in our minds and our bodies. This is the essence of Vasta Shastra, the Indian approach to creating living spaces with the intention of nourishing and inspiring us. Like the Feng Shui of China, it is a philosophy of life grounded in a deep understanding of how the spaces in which we live affect our health - mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Basically, while it is true that Serenity is simply another house listed on VRBO, it is, for me, much more than that. It is a place to relax and rejuvenate. It is a place where you create a restful vacation for yourself in a peaceful rural setting, comfortable in the knowledge that there is someone around to answer questions or help you if you need it. Physically, Serenity is 1750 square foot traditionally pegged post-and-beam house built around a 12 foot chimney and hearth. This means that wooden pegs, rather than nails, are used to construct the frame and all structural beams are exposed beneath wood paneled cathedral ceilings with skylights. All flooring is solid wood (oak downstairs; pine upstairs), as are all furnishings. Serenity sits on just over four acres, of wooded land, with Ganesh Gardens, a profusion of cultivated flower and herb beds spilling out on the hill behind it. At the base of the slope is a lovely pond, inhabited by peepers, frogs, turtles, and visited by deer, ducks, and, when we are lucky, a beautiful grey heron. Like Serenity, I experience Ganesh Gardens as a nourishing and soothing place to be. There are spaces to meditate, or just hang out and talk. There are medicinal herbs, and flowers, and I'm happy to teach people how to identify herbs or prepare native plants for a meal. Serenity is not alone on the land. A smaller timber-framed guest house is attached to Serenity that is used by HeartSong Health In Community, a small nonprofit naturopathic organization, to provide holistic primary medical care to local residents. HeartSong is a quiet, easy-going clinic, serving no more than 10-15 people per week. Guests at Serenity are also welcome to make appointments, and various naturopathic spa services are available, upon request: Infrared sauna, craniosacral therapy, colon hydrotherapy, yoga therapy, marma therapy (Ayurvedic energy work), a therapeutic jacuzzi, and, our latest addition, an amazing massage in an electric chair like nothing any of us have every seen before -- the Daiwa Legacy from Japan. (For more details about HeartSong offerings, see under "Other Things to Note".) In 2017, HeartSong hopes to open its doors to weekend guests who would like to enjoy a weekend of unlimited access to most of these therapies, as well as health-promoting meals cooked fresh daily. If this interests you, be sure to let me know so I can put you on the email list for when the service becomes available! In addition to Serenity and HeartSong on the main floor of the joint building, there is a sound-proofed apartment in the basement where I sleep. LAY-OUT: There is a kitchen, living/dining room, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, plus a sun room where you can sleep under the stars during spring, summer and early fall. A deck complete with outdoor grill and deck chairs also overlooks Ganesh Gardens. KITCHEN: The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, blenders, food processor, waffle iron, dishes, pots and pans, cooking and eating utensils. The kitchen is stocked with tea and coffee Keurig cups and a Keurig machine, common herbal mixes, salt, pepper, and a range of other staples that previous guests have left, such as flour and sugar. BEDROOMS: There are three bedrooms, each with a double bed, dresser for your possessions, blanket boxes for linens, several lamps, and a writing table. The upstairs rooms also have individual refrigerators. Master Bedroom: Upstairs, the master bedroom is doubled-sized. Loft Room: Also upstairs, another has a large loft where the futon mattress has been placed under the skylight, leaving a full-sized room free for your use. The loft room is a favorite choice for teens and young adults, but is not recommended for young children unless they are accompanied by an adult. There is plenty of room for two -- the loft itself extends 20 feet along the length of the ceiling and is kept warm and toasty with the chimney as a side wall. The two upstairs room share a bathroom. Accessible Room: The first-floor bedroom is directly off the living room, and is wheelchair accessible with direct access into one bathroom. SUNROOM: Located off the dining room, this room has double futon bed, with glass on all three exterior walls, in addition to the interior wall, plus a glass ceiling. It's fabulous if you'd like to gaze at the stars while in bed or wake up to a blue sky with clouds drifting by and the branches of a lilac tree nuzzling the window next to your bed. Roll down bamboo curtains provide privacy from the dining area. LIVING ROOM: The living room has a fireplace and a woodstove. The house is heated with the woodstove which I manage due to insurance requirements. I am available 24/7 to get the woodstove started up for you. There is also a fireplace where you can light your own fires at any time. ENTRY: Shoes are not worn in the house; there are slippers available if you need them, as well as thick clean socks. There is a covered porch and small interior room for storing shoes, sports equipment, plus a pocketbook library for your use while at Serenity or to trade in the book you just finished for another. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: Beds have futon mattresses with memory foam and hypoallergenic mattress covers, 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, and 100% cotton quilts. Additional linens provided are 100% cotton blankets or snuggly fleece blankets.
