My girlfriend and I spent a night in the Caboose, and had the pleasure of meeting Jeff and Susan. They are some of the nicest people you will meet. Jeff showed me around his beautiful property. At the center of the complex of structures Jeff has built is a fenced in field for the horses the live there. There are trails that sprawl the area, and Jeff has put in some street signs that label the trails. The entire property, including The Caboose, is powered by solar panels that sit on the far side of the horse enclosure. The Caboose is a wonderfully constructed tiny house made to look like a train caboose. The time we spent was peacefully quiet and cozy. We made pesto pasta in on the propane stove in the caboose. There’s even a full bathroom in there! If you get a chance, ask Jeff about his push for renewable energy or anything else!. He deserves books written about him.

We feel so lucky to have found this special place - and special people who built it and steward this land. Jeff & Susan are lovely hosts - felt like we must have known them for much longer than our quick trip! The land offers a lot more than we could take in - so we're heading back soon as we can! Such a cool place.
