Eco-Friendly B & B

The Lodge was completed in 2010 and built using state of the art materials. We conserve water at the Lodge by using barrels to harvest rainwater and an underground tank to store graywater for irrigation use. The Roadside Inn was created in 2018 by repurposing an otherwise forgotten building. Our landscape was completed using all native plants.

Our rooms feature green details like all-cotton sheets and towels as well as bulk organic soap, shampoo and body wash.
