EXTRAS

DOGS:  Please email us if you want to bring your dog. We have a wolf hybrid who is shy around humans but very loving. She can be territorial with dogs BUT will play with other medium to large dogs so long as they are not aggressive. If they act aggressively she will establish herself as alpha and it may not go well for your dog.  For their own safety, no miniature dogs or dogs that bark a lot.  Please be aware we have no fencing, and there are numerous coyotes that come through our land on a nightly basis that will come after small dogs.  No dogs allowed inside the home


CHILDREN:  We love them and have our 2 young ones here! But...while children are allowed as part of the workshop, we ask you please not bring young children under age 10 unless there is someone who is watching them full time. If you require a nanny, we can give you the contact information for our nannies (you pay them directly).  The land and inside the home has many areas where small children can hurt themselves and we cannot be responsible for watching children and cannot allow them inside the home without full time adult supervision. For children above age 6, additional meal cost will apply (children's rate of $200 for 10 days) 

NOISE:  We live in a private community.  Noise, aside from the build, must be kept to a minimum out of respect for our neighbors. No yelling, loud music from speakers, or equipment please at night.  Please be mindful.

HOUSE:  Please respect this is also our personal home. You are free to use the common areas inside and outside the house, but please help keep things tidy and report anything that needs attending to. 

LAUNDRY:  We will make our laundry room available if you need to wash clothes.  Please be mindful of water use.

SHOWERS:  We have 3 guest bathrooms with showers and tubs. Please bring only eco-friendly soaps and shampoos as we are on septic and everything drains to our land. 

HAVE FUN:  We go out of our way to make your stay enjoyable, so relax and enjoy the workshop!  We'll handle the rest.
