East Grove Farms Winery and Vineyard

1 site · Tent600 acres · Salem, IA
Located in Southeast Iowa, East Grove Farms Winery and Vineyard specializes in honey wine (also known as mead) made from various fruits like Elderberries. Our headquarters is the O.A. and Emma Garretson House, which has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The farm itself is the oldest continuously-settled farm in Iowa, and was established in 1837. The farm served as a station on the Underground RR and farm founder Joel C Garretson was the stationmaster. All are welcome to visit during our open hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 pm (or by appointment) for free wine and mead tastings. During the summer we offer wagon rides, and in the winter (weather permitting) we offer sleigh rides. East Grove Farms focuses on sustainable agricultural practices, and strives to be pesticide-free whenever possible. Feel free to wander through the fields, go hiking through the timber, fish for dinner in our pond. Learn more about this land: East Grove Farms invites you to pitch your tent in the former hazelnut thicket that our ancestors and the East Grove community safely hid freedom seekers from Missouri in the 1840's.   It is located 1/4 m north of the winery near the vineyard and tree line and you can usually drive to the camp on a grass path thru the elderberry patch.  It offers complete privacy and has a fire ring, picnic table, a prep table, and shade.  Firewood is available for sale at $10 per pallet. There is a porta potty at the camp site but no running water or electricity. For those interested in the underground RR, there is an excellent museum in nearby Salem, the Lewelling Quaker Museum, a National Park Service noted site for abolitionist activity.

Ubuntu Treehouse

1 site · Lodging5 acres · Rutledge, MO
This was built by a single mom who wanted to build a 100% green house with zero formaldehyde, toxins or chemicals. A house that would be among the trees high up in the air and could give you a birds eye of the land at the edge of this beautiful community. It is not complete yet but it's a truly serene place that is magical in every way.Learn more about this land:PLEASE READ THE PROPERTY DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING!!! Welcome to the peaceful Ubuntu treehouse, located at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, an intentional community of about 50 people focusing on environmentally friendly living. The glamping style off grid treehouse (NO wifi / NO electricity / NO reception) is set at the very edge of a vineyard and an organic farm within the community with sunset views that will not be rivaled. Ubuntu is the perfect place to have a getaway to recharge, have a meditation retreat or quiet reading time. Enjoy a swim in the pond, hike the multiple walking paths or bird watch in the surrounding 280 acres of pure nature.Built 100% green with no chemicals of any kind, it's covered in windows on all sides for extreme light and is immersed deep in nature. Take a break from electricity, wifi and cell reception and instead listen to sounds of birds and owls and watch bats, fireflies and stars from the deck.The Ubuntu treehouse is 500sq feet of open space furnished with a Cali King organic bed, an additional floor couch and an air mattress if needed. Although there is no running water, there will be water containers provided for cooking or hand washing. There is a kitchen with a small stove and ice box as well as any dishware, cookware and basic spices you might need as well as a huge selection of teas and snacks. Also you will have games, books, dart board and a hammock to enjoy. Outside you will find an enormous deck to sun bathe, do yoga or just lounge around and watch birds. The closest neighbors next to the house run the organic farm that have chickens, cows, goats, turkeys, pigs and ducks which you might hear during your stay. Ubuntu is about 12 feet off the ground and it has no railings on the stairs or around the deck so those who are scared of heights might not fare well. It feels HIGH when you get up there. The building is all wood and the inside space is loosely divided by some fabric tapestries into one bedroom area and lounge. The house is not complete and there is no insulation or wood stove so for now it's good for warmer months or those who feel they are polar bears :) The exterior landscaping is far from finished and the area around Ubuntu is a mix of wild overgrown weeds and the Ubuntu Treehouse is also rough around the edges but the magic of the place is there, if only you are ready for it.Guest accessUbuntu is about a five minute walk back from the public parking area here at Dancing Rabbit (I will have a cart available to get your luggage there!), as you cannot drive the car all the way to the house. UBUNTU AMENITIES: NO Electric. NO Internet. NO Running water. Bedding: I'll have clean bedding on the bed upon your arrival. Lights: solar lights and headlamps provided Kitchen: Basic stove, ice box, cooking utensils, dishes. Sink: Portable hand/dish was station (bucket underneath must be emptied!) Drinking water: A Berkey system will be available Bathroom: There is a composting toilet in the treehouseDANCING RABBIT ECOVILLAGE: Ubuntu Treehouse is located at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, an intentional community of about 50 adults. We're ecologically oriented, so there's a lot of alternative sights to see and experience while here. Many houses use timber framing, strawbale, cob, or otherwise green construction techniques. Folks who live here focus on conservation and a mindfulness of the natural world around us, and we encourage guests to do the same, as you're inclined.A stay in the Ubuntu treehouse can include a short 30 min walking tour of Dancing Rabbit upon your arrival (please arrange this ahead of time), alternatively we can just check you in and you can explore on your own. (Remember to stay off private property, and keep to the gravel paths within the village). By staying here, you'll get an interesting window into a radical and dynamic environmental experiment.OTHER THINGS NEARBY:ZIMMERMAN'S GROCERY/DINER: Three miles from the village is the amazing Zimmerman's Grocery store and diner. This is a comprehensive Mennonite run operation. They package most of the dry goods themselves. Lots of tinctures, salves, and herbal treatments. The place is open from 8-5 Mon thru Sat and serves classic diner comfort food.RUTLEDGE MEAT MARKET: If you like meat or cheese, you're in the right spot. This small town country butcher shop is very friendly, affordable, and offers top quality simple food.TRAILS: The village is located on a 280 acre land trust that includes a few miles of trails through prairie and woodland.SWIMMING: Just on the edge of the village is a nice swimming pond. (1 min walk from the treehouse). Adult and child swimmers are often naked (no need for alarm). On the sandy "beach" is a small floating dock, a few wooden chairs, and a drying platform under an osage tree. This swimming hole is quite popular during the warm season.Checking in after dark can be difficult for all parties, and is not recommended.Other things to noteYou will lose reception BEFORE you arrive here, so make sure you are prepared with directions. Most do not get service anywhere in the village.
