This peaceful 40 acre property has as its backdrop Mother Cummings Peak and the Great Western Tiers. The western boundary is the lovely Western Creek. A beautiful earth-rendered strawbale Yoga room called Atma Darshan has been built as a sadhana (practice) space. Indoor accommodation provided or camping is available near the creek. Appreciate simplicity and enjoy the beauty of nature. All food is vegetarian, much coming from our bio-dynamic vegetable garden and orchard.
