I had the most enjoyable time with Arvo and Mallory! They took me swimming, mushroom hunting and on a hot spring hike! The hermitory has the an amazing view of the sunset off the back deck. I also enjoyed hanging with the raven that comes to visit during the day! Thanks for the experience!

Mallary will do all she can to make you feel comfortable and secure. Make sure you communicate with her BEFORE your journey. Phone reception is not possible, at least with AT&T, a very important piece of advice.

Staying at the Hermitory was a very unique and adventurous experience! Arvo (host) was a very friendly, nice man who even met us at the end of the road to lead us into his property when we first arrived. The cabin/single efficiency was very nice and quaint. There was a sink in the Hermitory, an outhouse to use right outside the door, and it also had a great view from the deck. There was also a nice canyon to explore right in front of the Hermitory. There were animals on the property; cats, dogs, chickens, potbelly pigs, and even a goat. It was nice to spend time with these animals. Arvo gave us a tour of the property, showed us his herb, and vegetable garden, and welcomed us to take anything we would like from the garden. In the house, we also got to meet the raven that visits daily. As far as the property, most of the property is a "work in progress" and there tends to be a lot of reusable/recyclable material on the property. Arvo also has interns that stay on the property as he teaches them about self-sustaining homes and efficiency. GPS cannot take you directly to the property, and it is best to call 1-2 days ahead for directions, because it is kind of tricky to get there.

This was the most interesting place I've ever stayed. I was super impressed with all the work the owner has done on the property. If you're not up for off the grid living, this is probably not the place for you. If you are, this is the one place you must visit. Our view of the mountains were unbeatable. The growing food everywhere and the animals on the property make this place a little off the grid charm.
