IMPORTANT: Nightly rate is for up to 4 campers. If you have a larger party, click on the drop down menu to indicate the number in your party. There's room for up to 8 campers.

Camping made easy with HOT SHOWERS and a large, FULLY OUTFITTED OPEN AIR OUTDOOR KITCHEN!!: sinks, refrigerator, stove, toaster oven, toaster, blender, espresso machine, coffee grinder, dishes, utensils, pans, cutting boards, etc. All equipment stays in the kitchen so as to be available for everyone. The foods you find in the space belong to others and should not be taken! THIS IS A SHARED WORK SPACE. LEAVE IT CLEAN AND CLEAR OF YOUR POSSESSIONS. Because the kitchen may only be used by one family at a time, please do not eat in the kitchen. as that makes it unavailable for other campers and residents. Masks and social distancing are required around other campers and hosts regardless of vaccination status.  BTW, all of your hosts are vaccinated.

EASY TURN AROUND: Your big vehicle will fit along the road here at the Orchard Lawn campsites  (Your car can not be driven right up to your picnic table. To park near your picnic table, reserve campsite #1.). It's about a 30 yard walk from where you park your car to your campsite. There is a wheel barrel to help move your things. Your car will be safe on our little private road. We have a 80' turn around at the end of our road to make access super easy! 

LIBRARY OF TOYS, BOOKS, PUZZLES, AND GAMES. Around the property, there's plenty of cool forest shade, a park like lawn, and a sunny meadow. Find yourself a cozy spot on a sofa under the trees or in a hammock with a good book from our library. There's always a jigsaw puzzle out on one of the picnic tables by the pizza oven. We’ve got badminton and croquet, just ask. Enjoy looking at the stars through the telescope, just ask. Each campsite has a picnic table & benches.

Outlets to CHARGE YOUR PHONE and DEVICES. Good WIFI in several places in town (1 mile).

Please NO FIRES during Fire Season. CHECK WITH HOSTS about whether fires are currently allowed. Fire MUST be completely extinguished before you go to sleep at night. Firewood available for purchase. SMOKERS, please be super careful!

We are powered by the sun and quenched by the fresh water from the well. Fruit trees and extensive gardens dot the property. Feel free to pick a piece of fruit.

We're in a wooded country neighborhood where lots of folks have dogs, so you might hear some barking and see some neighbors. Very occasionally we see a dog off leash. We ask that you keep your dogs on leash at all times, as we have cats & chickens and our neighbors have small children. 

A note about private property: Our property is 4 acres, not all fenced. The side boundaries follow the lines of the fencing up by the house. The end of out property is marked with a sign along the our road. Please respect our neighbors' privacy. We encourage you to enjoy the forest, but do be aware that there is poison oak. If you don't know what it looks like we can show you.
