Come alone or with your whole family and gain experience building a home using a very old method of earthen construction; cob.

The hands-on cob workshop is optional, of course, but this is clearly our uniqueness. We can get you and your whole group stomping in the mud and building a wall that will stand for generations.

Come alone or with your whole family and gain experience building a home using a very old method of earthen construction; cob.

The hands-on cob workshop is optional, of course, but this is clearly our uniqueness. We can get you and your whole group stomping in the mud and building a wall that will stand for generations.

Children 11 and under do not count towards the guest count.

Enjoy watching the shenanigans of our goats, dogs, cats and chickens as you work and play on our homestead. Children are warmly welcomed and catered to.

Our designated campsites will accommodate tents exclusively at this time and are enveloped in semi-wild young forest, on a patch of regularly cleared pasture-like turf. The evenings are filled with a loud orchestra of tree- frogs and crickets, as well as the occasional coyote calls, dog howls, owl songs, and my favorite; Chuck-Wills-Widow call. Up to 6 tents may be set up on this one patch of earth, but we will only book one group or party at a time.

Our area of Alabama, and our area of county, in particular, does harbor poison ivy, various snakes, raccoons, fox, armadillos, opossums, and other nocturnal wanderers. We have a total of 6 dogs that help us to feel guarded and secure against wood-boogers and four-legged rascals.

 We can give you a grill or there is a fire pit both at your tent site, as well as near our cabin.

Your campsite is private, and somewhat secluded, though it is only 500 feet from our cabin.

A communal outhouse, constructed of cob- is the designated latrine.

The nearest hospital is 15 minutes away, as well as your most common commercial conveniences.
