Enjoy a secluded stay at Gaia Rising Farm on Guemes Island just a 5 min. ferry ride from Anacortes. Watch our farm animals graze outside the widow of this charming studio apt. that is attached to our unique solar powered home. Walk the woods and beaches. Swim in our pond.
Your hosts Lane and Sequoia are artists/ designers who have a commitment to a low footprint lifestyle and permaculture principles and have started Gaia Rising Farm to address food security concerns.. The private apt. sits at the end of our house/ studio complex. It has a wood burning stove (not needed in summer months), an adobe floor, a compost toilet and is powered by the solar panels on the roof. Farm fresh organic produce will be available for purchase. Help with farm chores if you like- discounts may be considered.
Children can be accommodated on cots or floor mats. We could also put up a tent in the summer months.
We are a short walk or bike ride from the ferry, and the beach is only a half mile down our private lane. We have a beautiful pond that is great for swimming on nice days or you can take out the row boat. All the pleasures of the San Juan Islands are at your fingertips. We have two bicycles available for guests to use anytime.
Interaction with guests
We enjoy meeting new people and also respect guests privacy if they don't want interaction. We will usually be home during guest stays if any issues come up.
We are willing to take more than two guests but there is one bed so additional guests will have a foam pad for the floor for $10 per each additional guest.
Other things to note
There is a $10 per person charge for any extra guests over two and a $10 charge for a dog. I do need to pre approve having a dog.
Experience and learn about a simpler and more sustainable way of living, from compost toilet to greywater system and off grid solar powered living.. Our solar electric system will allow for most of your needs such as computer use, charging cell phones, and lights, but it will not accommodate high wattage appliances such as hair dryers and irons. Just ask us first if you have questions.
Please no smoking inside.
