We welcome writers, poets, artists and their ilk - just about anyone seeking silence and inspiration. The loudest noise maybe the rooster in the morning, but the organic, farm-fresh eggs for breakfast make that worthwhile. We offer a homely experience, which is non-resort, and non-intrusive. Our property is full of quiet nooks and corners, each with a little table and chair. Try them out. You never know which one will turn out to be your muse.
