We are in the middle of sculpting and planting a 5 acre terraced area and need some help, please. Room & Board and a great experience in the middle of nowhere on a small forest river. Check out my thread and kick it around. Lots to do, plenty to learn~

I thought I'd answer a couple of questions I've gotten via e-mail. There is a 2 bedroom furnished cottage with bath (grey water) kitchenette & den for our guests. Yes, of course you may camp if you want & that's your choice. There are a lot of black bear, deer, wild turkey, coyotes, copperheads and big cats.
There is plenty of room, if you have a Yurt that you want to erect.
