With a large a screened porch overlooking the property, this is a great spot for indoor and outdoor retreating for groups or several individuals. There is one downstairs guestroom which is handicapped-accessible.
The Little House
If you love charm and history choose the Little House. The Little House is the original home purchased in 1969 to begin The Snail’s Pace ministry. It is over 100 years old and virtually “hugs” you when you walk in. There are 7 sleeping spaces; three bathrooms.

Adjacent is a spacious common area with a cozy wood stove offering a place for reading, meditating, or just relaxing. Sleeps 1 individual or a couple; private bath.
