Eva's Roost is a zen-style cottage that has been completely redone inside over the past year. There will be more stonework and landscaping done in the spring on the outside. Nestled in the hillside, overlooking the pond, the cottage gives a sense of oneness with nature including sleeping with the moon, waking to the ducks, watching the passing deer and listening to the birds. It's a perfect, private space for a retreat. Bonnie & Paul are partners and will be your hosts.
Enjoy your own place while having access to gardens, trails, pond and your hosts in the main house. Guests are welcome to help in the gardens or participate in yoga, meditation, retreats or other seasonal activities such as tapping maple trees, drying herbs, infusing oils, laying stone and more. The peaceful, natural setting is perfect for writers, artists, musicians and anyone needing some time out from their regular routine. The cottage has a woodstove, bathroom with shower, sitting area and double bed. A small kitchen(toaster oven, hotplate, kettle, coffeemaker, dishes & basic cooking supplies) doubles as a storm shelter if ever needed. Guests are welcome to use the large kitchen at the main house if they are wanting to use a large oven or gas stove. Electric heat is available for winter and air conditioner for summer. Eventually their will be a screened in porch to sit out in the evenings by the pond.

I am a spiritual director, retreat facilitator and mindfulness & meditation teacher who loves to travel and also loves to come home. I like to stay in places that are simple and cozy. I am a social person, but also enjoy time alone reading, walking, meditating or being creative. I grow food organically with my partner and love to share our produce with guests at our retreat house. When I travel, I seek out restaurants that support local farmers and I share local places like this with guests at my retreat house. I am curious and love adventure, so appreciate tips on great places to visit, eat or explore. Having been hosted by many others in my life, I have loved offering the Homestead Retreat & Gardens for others to enjoy. My hope is that this house will be a peaceful place to stay and that even if you just showed up with a toothbrush, you would have all that you need! In August of this year, we added Eva's Roost Retreat to our Airbnb listings. This sweet zen-style cottage has large windows overlooking the pond and forest & is a quiet & private space to retreat for one or two people. We are beginning our third year of being listed on Airbnb and loving every minute. We look forward to welcoming you.
