wheaton labs is comprised of two pieces of property:

base camp

base camp is a ROCKY, very hilly chunk of land with a steep rise culminating in a 500 foot little peak that we call the "hollowed out volcano with good submarine access" and has:
  • good well water
  • on-grid electricity
  • wifi
  • outdoor willow feeder "willow bank" (like an outhouse)
  • outdoor (rockety wood-heated hot water) shower shack


  • the lab

    The lab is two miles from base camp along a paved, then gravel, then steep dirt-sometimes-mud-or-snow-adventure road. It is a much larger, more diverse, forested property surrounded by US forest land. lab features include:
  • off-grid
  • no wifi
  • solar electric power via the small "voltzwagon" at Allerton Abbey
  • solar electric power via the "solar leviathan" at Cooper Cabin
  • no water source yet (bring water from base camp)
  • limited cell service, some places no cell service
  • two outdoor willow feeders - "the chateau de poo" and the "willowonka" (next to Cooper Cabin)
  • lots of wildlife - including black bears, so please store food properly to avoid attracting bears

    Longer term rentals are available - please inquire.

    We also have acreage / bare land available per our shallow roots (3 years) or deep roots (lifetime) programs.

    Hi,
    When I click the link to look at the open dates for the Love Shack, Hipcamp just keeps asking me to log in again, (which I have a login, and then do), but then it doesn't actually show me the available dates.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    Anyways, what's the next best way to check two particularly peppy date ranges? Is that a Coco PM?
    Thanks!

    I don't know anything about hipcamp or openings, but I think PMing Coco seems like a really good idea!

    Oh, thanks for alerting us to that, Ash! We'll try to fix that link.

    And Nicole is right, that besides posting here, a PM to Coco is good, too.

    I believe the Love Shack and Shan-delier are open and ready for renting. There should be a bunk in the bunkroom, too. There might also be options for "slumber party" at Cooper Cabin and a bunk at Allerton Abbey, but I need to verify.

    Let me get back to you!

    I asked Paul what's available. (Tenting is, of course, free!)

    The Love Shack
    bunk in the bunkroom
    RMH Tipi
    Slumber Party at Cooper Cabin The rate for Slumber Party at Cooper Cabin is $150.00. Here's a direct payment link for that: Slumber Party at Cooper Cabin

    The Love Shack

    Yes please. I Wanted to check in about specific dates before I pay. Can I be a SEPPer Before/after event and rent the love shack for 14 days?
    I could arrive as early as the 16 or wait til the 18 and stay after the event.

    Is this the best place to sort out these details or is a purple moosage better?

    I asked Paul, and whatever days work for you, work for him. No one is already renting it before or after the event. So, just pick the dates that work best for you and post them here or email them to me--I think you have my @permies.com email from our communication about other events? And then just paypal Paul the amount using the Love Shack 14 night rate link

    I don't know if this information is useful for planning processes: Some of the instructors will be there on the 17th to have time to settle in. So, if you come early, you won't be the only one!

    Is there a status update on rentals during  the PDC+PTJ+SKIP in June 13- July 24,  2021. I am interested and considering staying in a rental for some of the time if available.

    Hi Daniel! I'm Lara, the rental manager over here at Wheaton Labs. Please shoot me an email so we can chat about your rental for the summer events.
