Community Description

Workshops

Need a space where your participants can let go of stress and explore nature while they learn? Host your retreat or workshop in an open field, by a stream, and among the trees. Get away from the distractions of the city and spend time connecting, both to others in your group and to nature.
Weddings

A picture-perfect place to exchange your vows. Share your love of each other and the great outdoors. Our soon-to-be-constructed event barn will be perfect for weddings and receptions. Or we can create the magic of the big outdoor tent wedding as well!
Concerts

Our event barn will be the perfect stage for sharing your talent! Or take advantage of our spectacular summer weather and opt for an outdoor concert at our music venue next to the pond. Create a one-of-a-kind concert experience for your fans as they enjoy the show in a beautiful setting.
Retreats

Experience a place of awe and wonder as you reconnect to the earth and to yourself. Rent our tiny house, RV, or bring a tent and create a personal retreat for yourself. Perfect for writers, poets, musicians, and photographers
