We love our little farm but it's great to get away too. A 3 hour drive and a 2500 foot hike is all it takes to access our 12 acre wood lot retreat. And the hike in is downhill both ways! Sled in and sled out.
Kalwall and with a floor that's just 50 square feet--so no permit needed. The wood stove keeps it quite warm and with the sleeping loft overhead there really is enough room. It's amazing what you can do with free stuff.
The composting toilet has 3 glass walls with fabulous views. the hot tub can be seen in the foreground (an old cast iron tub with a fire pit beneath it)
A single solar panel and a truck battery provide power for a string of lights and a TV/DVD player for watching a movie from the local library.
The sledding was epic this particular weekend.
Trekking out to check on the spring.
It's a bit of a hike through the hardwood.
YAY! running water.
The best water ever!
And then back to the Hot house and more sledding, more relaxing, more conversation without daily live on the farm interruptions. Peace and quite except for the occasional snowmobile and the coyotes. If the wind is right we can hear the guardian dog keeping the predators away at the farm down the road.
