One of the best sleeps in sometime, cool breeze through the lean to; the dark starlight sky another treat.
So peacefully quiet — even with the chickens, turkeys! Inspiring to see/hear of the farm projects completed and yet to be. Especially Loved the Big garden and the produce out of it.
Only regret was such a short stay!

Me and my sister stayed 2 lovely days on Munro's property. He is a charming host who made us feel welcome and relaxed each minute we stayed there
He is very friendly, helpful, and likes to share his knowledge and passion about nature.
He made this world a sharing place.
For each of us.
This is a place you should visit at least once in your lifetime and you once you do I am sure you will want to come back for more

I am taking a minute to review Munro himself prior to the actual Lean-To. (which is very cool, clean, with beautiful stained glass elements greeting you at the door)
Munro is himself in possession of a great deal of skill and farm/life wisdom which he sprinkled around his truly magical farm…. He is approachable and kind with a profound understanding of the human condition. The various 3-5 foot tall stone Buddha statues from Bali greeted me wherever I walked ..
The farm is a tight run and love filled community where the delicious and energy filled meals and extra time spent teaching and making each guest comfortable are but a small core sample of the great times to be had.

I am truly happy to have come.
Booking again with family!!

I stayed at Munro’s lean-to for one night and I’m already planning to return for a longer stay! After finishing up a year of college, I was ready to completely disconnect and return to nature for a while. This place couldn’t have been more perfect. The lean-to was cozy and simple, with a shelf for storage, candles, and beautiful stained glass windows. The animals made me smile so much- make sure to meet Ozzie the goat! I loved heating up in the sauna and jumping in the river afterwards, capping off the day with a delicious nettle pasta and a campfire. Truly a one-of-a-kind place that I feel lucky to have experienced. I’d recommend this place to people of all ages looking to reconnect with themselves and the world around us. Some tips: bring headlamps for navigating the farm at night, lanterns (preferably solar powered) to light up your cabin, things to relax and stay busy with like books and games, and an open mind to different food experiences! Munro’s place is now a landmark of Humboldt for me. Check it out for yourself!

The best river access on the Van Duzen, completely sustainable permaculture farm with sauna, outdoor private shower that was so great I got in twice. Preserves, with a duck nettle soup and garlic scapes for dinner! Unexpected and delightful generosity. Perfect for solitude and meditation. Extremely comfortable and communicative hosts. Animals are wonderfully cared for. This was a chance to digitally detox with my teen who enjoyed participating in real life and eating food that was nutritious and delicious. We stayed in the Lean-To, and each of the cabins looked cozy too. Farmstays are also available. This is the place for serious reflection in addition to fun. A treasure in the amazing redwoods of Northern California; make the trip!

Was great to have you and your son over the Memorial Day weekend. So fun watching him bond with Sophie and enjoy the river. Hope y'all can make it back around July 4th. Munro and Eloise
