It took five years and 200 volunteers, but this incredible, enchanting cordwood yurt is complete! The off-grid structure was built primarily from materials gathered on their 225-acre organic farm, and the results are fantastic. If you’re not familiar with cordwood construction, it’s the process of using short logs and mortar/cob to build a structure.
The natural materials make this such a cozy spot. Inside the home, you’ll find a queen bed, a kitchenette, a live-edge bench, a dining table, and a propane fireplace all circling a central vertical log with tons of character. It’s the perfect woodland hideaway!

This Natural Home Was Built by 200 Volunteers!
It’s tucked in a lovely woodland grove.
A dried tree truck stands at the center of the home.
An off-grid kitchen with curved countertops gives you a spot to make simple food.
The dining table provides seating for four.
The enchanting view from the queen bed.
A handcrafted trundle bed acts as a couch and additional sleeping space.
Enough windows let natural light flood in.
The stove is propane, which is easier for guests to use than wood.
Here you can see the handcrafted daybed better.
Now you have two more beds! Perfect for kids.
I love the colorful bottles in the wall.
Two burners and various pots supplied.
A live-edge bench provides more seating and storage.
I think that rocking chair is the best spot in the house!
The spot is solar-powered, so you’ll need to be conscious of energy usage.
After five years, this work of art is finally complete! This eco friendly building was mostly constructed with materials from our forest. Nearly 200 volunteers had a hand in helping over the years in its construction. It is built with cordwood masonry, round and unique. We are a working 225 acre organic farm and homestead that grows much of our own food. You will love our friendly animals, volunteers and miles of hiking trails. This is a off grid solar powered cabin with an outhouse nearby.
The Enchanted Cabin has a fire pit and an outdoor sun shower. Firewood is for sale at the wood stand by the fire pit for $10 a bundle. Kindling and fire starter are provided complimentary. We will also have seasonal items for sale which you can inquire about when you book. Through our passion for excellent seasonal vegetarian cuisine and our love for our farm animal friends, we hope to be an inspiring example of sustainable homesteading.
The cabin has minimal water with very low pressure for washing dishes and showering but does not have drinking water. Be sure to bring your own. Containers can be filled up at a sink behind our barn, however this is well water and not treated in any way. We drink this water but we are not supposed to serve it to the public without chlorinating it. The 5 gallon jugs provided for washing dishes and filling camp shower bag can be refilled at the barn. Msg us and we’ll show you.
This is a rustic cabin located deep in the forest and you might see small creatures, like mice or chipmunks, or insects. If you are afraid of insects or small forest creatures don’t book!
Both being avid outdoor enthusiasts, we enjoy encouraging people to reconnect with nature and the food they are consuming by experiencing our farm and forest.
