Guest Access for All of our Visitors
We have many sustainable features on our property and invite our guests to partake of them! We do not use air conditioning in our communal areas, although this is available in private rental spaces. We use composting toilets to create dank soil that becomes vibrant plants, but we alternatively have modern toilets available too. We have an incredibly refreshing outdoor well shower that pumps cool water straight from the ground, but there is a hot shower available inside as well. Please be aware that wifi is available, but it presently does not reach to the rental areas in the back of our property (however, we are constantly upgrading our realities!).
We also grow and prepare beyond organic, world class cuisine. This is available to all guests for a reasonable donation. Food can be pre-ordered and customized or simply partaken of if and when it is desirable and convenient.
We can also provide wonderful relaxation or educational retreat experiences! From yoga and massage to gardening and amazing cooking classes, we can fully customize your stay with us to give you exactly what you seek. Please contact us to negotiate the details.
We currently have 9 cozy spaces on offer through AirBnB:
our charming Cob Cottage, adorable and sweet travel trailers, a bamboo bungalow, teeny tiny crate homes, and several unique private rooms in our main house!
Our Cob Cottage is a hand sculpted dwelling that combines the rustic feel of an indigenous hut with the basic comforts of modern living!
Set at the edge of the grounds of our small but busy ecovillage, the view is pastoral and quiet,
yet it's only minutes to the DFW metroplex. Enjoy the tranquility of our bamboo forest from the screened-in porch!
The cottage is beautiful and very private though it is simple. This is for people who want a quiet, natural experience.
There is a single private composting toilet for your convenience, and another facility for communal use near the main house. Alternatively you can use the shared indoor bathroom in the main house if you wish.
You are welcome to refresh yourself in our outdoor well shower in the summer or the indoor fire-heated shower if conditions permit.
There is electricity, and we can provide a small AC unit for summer or space heater in winter as optional amenities for a small donation.
We invite you to enjoy our sustainable alternatives for cooling & heating, like our refreshing outdoor well shower or hot rocks heated on the wood burning stove!
Our Travel Trailer
is cozy and private,
rustic and simple!
Our Travel Trailer can accommodate up to 4 guests! There is a bedroom area with a queen bed, and a pull out couch in the living room area.
As part of our ecovillage culture, we are dedicated to living sustainably, and the trailer is set up with this in mind.
Electricity runs to the trailer, but our wifi signal does not reach the back of the property where the trailer is situated. AC for summer, or a space heater in winter, are optional amenities we can add on for a small donation.
There is no running water in the trailer, and the restroom facilities are a private composting toilet just outside equipped with sawdust, hand sanitizer, TP and baby wipes, plus a large pitcher of water for washing. Running water is available in the main house. You may choose to use the indoor shared bathroom at the main house if you prefer.
There is an outdoor shower powered by well-water for bathing. It is crisp and refreshing on a hot day, and brisk in any other weather. This is another excellent option for staying cool in the summer!
We require a User Agreement for our short stay Airbnb guests.
Our charming Garden Room is a private space centered in the main house of our sustainable community!
A queen bed with memory foam mattress pad, seating area, closet, and dresser are available to you in this private space.
A bright window brings lots of natural light to the room and overlooks a small deck.
There is a ceiling fan and extra box fans available to keep you cool in summer, as well as a window AC unit. A space heater and extra blankets are available to keep you toasty warm in winter.
As with all of our Airbnb spaces, we provide a complimentary continental breakfast for you with hot tea, seasonal fruits, a variety of organic milks & cereals, organic breads, and delicious spreads in our shared dining area.
You will have your choice of restroom facilities! We have a shared indoor bathroom right outside this room with running water, flush toilets, and a hot shower for your comfort and convenience. If you want to try the all natural route and donate your waste to rebuilding the Earth, we also have a communal composting toilet facility outside the main house!
