Looking for a personal retreat or get away ? Escape to our beautiful, RUSTIC 34 acre wild homestead / farm. Just 90 minutes from DC and Baltimore.

Our treehouse is a primitive shelter in the woods that sleeps two, has a futon on a wooden pallet frame for a bed, is surrounded by a deck for enjoying life in the tree tops and a fire ring on the ground below for sitting around the campfire. Two of the walls of the treehouse are solid wood and the other 2 are all screens. It is a mildly steep, but short (under one minute) walk from car to treehouse, and steps leading up to treehouse are very steep. *We do not recommend this for parents with small children. Sheets and pillows are not provided. Please bring a sleeping bag to sleep on futon as if you were camping. There is a small wooden makeshift camp table on ground below for a temporary kitchen space as well as a porch swing. Deck chairs are provided. You will need to bring your own camp stove, or cook over open fire . **Since this is a treehouse , please note that it is suspended between living trees that are growing up through the deck. That means that when it is very windy, the treehouse will move and sway slightly with the trees, and make creaking sounds that will remind you of being on the deck of a pirate ship. Not to worry - this is perfectly normal. 

This is a working medicinal herb farm, a community of beautiful souls, as well as our home. Please read all of our guidelines thoroughly, as well as **ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS** , they will tell you what to do when you arrive and how to get to treehouse ! We do not provide firewood, but you can buy a bundle from 7/11 or Food lion just down the road,

Feel free to wander through the herb gardens, eat your meals in the garden pavilion (we have picnic tables), hang out in the hammocks, get your Zen on in the meditation hut , and stroll through the woodland medicine path where we grow endangered and at at risk plants. You may see our dog, Tulsi wandering about. Please let her sniff you first as she is old and going blind, and that helps. 

Downtown Shepherdstown, the Potomac River and the C &O Trail is just 10 minutes away. Upon arrival, grab a handout from the box on the visitor parking sign. The map on the back has a layout of the land and should point you in the right direction of  water, shower, outhouse, and whatever else you might be looking for, including recommendations of great places to eat in town and fun things to do.

Shepherdstown Peddle and Paddle in town offers rentals for kayaking , canoeing tubing or biking. We are also within an hour drive to the Appalachian Trail and several state parks - Harper’s Ferry, Washington Monument State Park, Gathland State Park , Shenandoah National Park and Catoctin Mountain State Park !!

We offer a variety of classes and events on the weekends as well. Small groups... not to worry. We have 34 acres, so there is plenty of space. If you would like to know what we are offering for the weekend, you can visit our website sacredrootswv.com.

- Campfires - We do not provide firewood. Please bring your own firewood bundle. 7-Eleven and Food Lion just 10 minutes away has some for sale, and you are welcome to forage from downed trees and branches . Woodpile in front of yurt (our home) and in Sacred Circle is not for public use. Please DO NOT burn fires in Sacred Circle fire ring (we use that for ceremony only), or fire ring by yurt . Thanks.

It is a great tiny treehouse, very sturdily built and clean. Nice deck for drinking coffee in the morning and listening to the birds. We enjoying seeing the herb gardens, pavilion, and meditation hut. Great place to stargaze, although it was cloudy during our stay. We appreciated having Hilary stop by to say hello.
