El alojamiento
A unique experience in a beautiful natural area, in an off-grid, sustainable, permaculture-focused ecovillage, nestled deep in the heart of Six Rivers National Forest. The hand-built Half-Moon Cabin is the more spacious of the two small cabins, with extra storage space and a comfy leather sofa section, a lofted lofted double bed and woodstove heat, as well as extra privacy down forested Village Creek Road. If you are visiting during the colder months, you'll love getting cozy in the Half Moon with the woodstove and extra hangout space for reading, playing games, or cuddling. We have wood available for sale at $5/bundle.

Our property encompasses 160 acres of pristine natural wilderness in Northern California's beautiful Smith River canyon - home of the only un-dammed river in the state. Lush fern-encrusted hillsides slope down to countless spring-fed streams, teeming with wildlife, from cute caterpillars to (also cute, sometimes!) black bears. Accessible only by forestry road from scenic Redwoon Hwy (CA-199,) this is an opportunity to experience our responsible natural relationship with Mother Earth.

This location is very beautiful and quite remote, so please be sure you've read through the full description and are prepared for certain elements of "roughing it" and adventure travel. The Village is also a work-in-progress so we are likely to be working and there may be construction, dirt, and messes around!

Amenities:
•Lighting / Electricity: Your cabin does not have electricity; we try to keep a flashlight, lantern, and/or candle available for your use -- but we recommend that you bring your own lights.
•Kitchen: The outdoor kitchen, near your cabin, has a small propane camping stove, and plenty of pots, pans, and utensils for your use. We do not have refrigeration but we do have a freezer (with ice packs) and coolers for storing food.
•Bathrooms: We use composting toilets (buckets with seats); there is an indoor toilet in the bathhouse. Hot shower in the sauna/bathhouse. It is about 200 yds on average away from most of our cabins
•(Lack of) Phone / Internet: Some Verizon and US Cellular service is available, but AT&T and T-Mobile do not service our area. We do not have wifi.

The Great Outdoors:
•Domestic animals: Between the three dogs who run around at night chasing forest creatures, springtime frog concerts, and the early-rising chickens, it is likely that there will be some animal noises occurring at unpredictable moments during the night and day.
•Wild animals: There are various of these that live in the forest, including skunks, chipmunks, foxes, black bears, and many birds and insects. Since we have dogs and people around, the wild animals tend to keep their distance from the areas that we use. If you are lucky, you might spot a black bear on a hike; they are basically like big raccoons and prefer to run away from humans.

If you are looking for a unique experience and up for rustic accommodations with a few off-grid perks, we welcome you to join us in our mountain paradise!

Acceso para huéspedes
You'll have access to the shared outdoor kitchen, indoor dining hall, bath-house, and sauna, as well as gardens and lots of forest! There are plenty trails to hike, a swimming hole, and garden benches and porch swings to enjoy the view.

The host (Dan) is sometimes around, sometimes not, often busy doing stuff, so it's all pretty straight forward check in yourself (no key or lock) make yourself at home, community areas are obvious. But there's almost always someone around (other residents, intern woofers) to answer questions if you have them.

Your cabin is in the lower village area, featuring an outdoor kitchen, wood-fired sauna (usable November thru May), large organic garden and edible landscaping, chicken and goat pens, and two additional cabins. Other animal residents include dogs, cats, chickens, fish and frogs.

From your cabin, you are welcome to wander at will amongst our 160 acres of mostly steep, forested land, and enjoy the streams and waterfalls leading into Little Jones Creek. A stroll down the" driveway" and back along the forestry road is a beautiful hike in itself, where you could easily spend all day in the company of only quiet woodland creatures.

We also offer custom bodywork sessions - holistic chiropractic and massage - more info available on request.

Driving here: You do NOT need 4WD or any special vehicle to reach our property. We drive in and out regularly in our small Honda hatchback and have had hundreds of visitors drive up in their "regular" cars. Indeed the forestry road has a few potholes worth slowing to 5mph, but otherwise can be driven at 20mph. The rainy winter season creates puddles but actually better traction than in summer, counter intuitively. The bridge ramps narrow and all you need to do is drive it slowly, consciously. Pretty easy.

Note: Plenty of people have very relaxing, enjoyable satisfying experiences here in our sustainable culture experiment, but this happens only when reality exceeds expectations. This is where I try to talk everyone out of coming to stay with us -- MMV is NOTHING like a resort or the Marriott hotel. Think some crazy combination of camping/glamping at a rugged, mountainous, off-grid, remote farm and sustainable community. There may be a compost pile outside your cabin after we weed the the beds around it. Our goats, chickens or dogs may wake you in the morning. There are all kinds of critters here including but not limited to spiders and bears and all in between. We live here and make messes, undertake all kinds of projects including big building projects sometimes. It is NOT polished, not always tidy (although we really try) convenient or even (sometimes) comfortable. You may have to split your own firewood. There is plenty of raw beauty and these forementioned functionalities are how it is here as we continue working towards Shangri La!

Our 160-acre property is surrounded by about a million acres of National Forest. Our neighborhood is all made of trees, huckleberry bushes and animals. We love it here. It is very remote, peaceful, and functionally sustainable in its focus. The closest neighbor is a Buddhist Hermitage about a mile up the forestry road. Also, supposedly, Sasquatch live here! (it is the epicenter for documented sightings)

Most visitors to the area are interested in spending time in the redwoods – we are about 30-45 minutes from the nearest entrance to Jedediah Smith Park, home of Stout Grove and other beautiful redwood hikes. Driving into Crescent City, about 45-60 minutes, winds you right through the "gentle giants" on your way to or from Redwood National Park.

This is our 12th year of an off-grid, sustainable living experiment that focuses on wilderness permaculture farming on mountain landscapes-- we welcome you to experience it with us
Durante tu estancia
The Half Moon has a little extra privacy from the Lower Village thanks to its location down the forested Village Creek Road.

With a rotating and seasonally changing cast of residents and guests, your experience might range from a quiet day alone in the village to a parade of WWOOFers and other AirBnBers socializing in the common areas.

We all have variable schedules and "real" jobs, so we may or may not be home or around during your stay or on your arrival.
