It's the perfect marriage of the organic materials , handmade craftsmanship and the location that set you up in the peaceful state of mind when you spend some time here. After few hours here your body clock settles into a restful pace. I'm still not sure wether it is the memories of vacations in Bali or Thailand that get waken up while I'm here or the serene location or maybe there are some magnetic fields deep under ground , but I tell you , I sleep better here than anywhere else. Comfort , serenity & feelings of well being radiate in this place...Of course the super fast internet , Apple TV , 55" HDTV , luxurious bathtub next to the fireplace , the chefs kitchen : You should find in the kitchen most everything you could possibly need to create memorable meals. There are 2 faucets in the kitchen, the smaller one is filtered drinking water . There is cutlery and all kitchen tools including baking pans, a Kitchen Aid Mixer , blender , toaster , coffee machines .
Two of the bedrooms are in a self contained cottage with a full bath .
The pond is spring fed ( go for a swim ) , there is place for all your vehicles , your mobile phones will work just fine .
Go ahead take a run or use our bikes and ride to town or just explore the farmland around .

Enjoy the fireplace ( living room).
Before you start a fire, please make sure that the vent is open. A lever inside the chimney may need to be pulled towards the pond. If you have smoke in the house the vent is probably closed. Please "prime" the flue with a rolled burning newspaper held up to the vent/flue.
" Upside-down fire " methods works best in this fireplace , 2 large logs on the bottom , 2 more on top of those perpendicular and some kindling to top it off , crumpled paper at very top , light and you got your self a long lasting fire.
More then that and it will smoke :( .
Please help yourself to the wood stacked up on deck. Do not leave a fire unattended. Sparks can fly easily and smoke can be dangerous.

In winter the house is heated and pre-programmed for your entire stay. No need to change the thermostat. In summer please use the remotes to operate AC's ( master bed & kitchen ) they are silent but work great. In other areas there are ceiling fans.

The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed at anytime.
