Hermitage: Retreat Cabin
Life is sometimes hectic and one aches for solitude in a quiet place. The Hermitage at the Eco-Justice Center offers just that to guests. Even in the midst of winter, visitors find a cozy atmosphere in this one room cabin with fireplace, comfy chair and bed, and all the essentials for simple living amid the beauty of nature. Come to rest, read, relax, renew, write, create, and enjoy. Contact the Center to make arrangements or to give the gift of a stay at the Hermitage to a friend.
Located in a wooded area south of the main house, our Hermitage, built in 2010, is available for rent by individuals or couples for a day, weekend or week at a time. The one room cabin features a fireplace, dining area, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and a composting toilet. Enjoy the views of nature from the large picture window. In addition, the screened in front porch provides a comfortable fresh-air sitting area.
Green features of the Hermitage include composite decking, reclaimed trim, green jean insulation, and steel roofing. The flooring and kitchen counter are made from a black walnut tree grown on our property.
