Life is sometimes hectic and one longs for solitude in a quiet place. The Hermitage at the Eco-Justice Center offers just that to guests. Even in the midst of winter, visitors find a cozy atmosphere in this one room cabin with fireplace, comfy chair and bed, dining area, and all the essentials for simple living amid the beauty of nature. Come to rest, read, relax, renew, write, and enjoy. Located in a wooded area south of the main house, our Hermitage, built in 2010, is available for rent by individuals or couples for up to three nights. Enjoy the views of nature from the large picture window or the screened-in front porch. The one room cabin also features a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and composting toilet. There is no indoor plumbing, but water is provided for washing. 

Green features of the Hermitage include composite decking, reclaimed trim, green jean insulation, and steel roofing. The flooring and kitchen counter are made from a black walnut tree grown on our property.
