Home & Office Description

This is a Tiny House on an organic farm with an incredible mountain view. It is simple living, the chop-wood-carry-water life that has inspired so many great minds to do some of their best work. The hand-built 72-square foot house is half bedroom and half kitchenette. The bed can be set up as a single bed or a double bed. The kitchenette has a water jug you can fill from a nearby well and a greywater system. There is an outhouse with a composting system for human waste. There is electricity and plug-in ethernet cable internet (not wifi). We have reliable cell service for Verizon customers only, other networks won't work here. This home is perfect for a writer's retreat or a peaceful escape after a busy time. There are hundreds of acres of forest to hike up into just outside the door. The house is on a working organic farm, so you can buy vegetables from the farmers.

Why You'd Love This Home/Office

Peaceful, quiet life in the mountains.

Hiking trails and cross country ski opportunities abound!

We're in a great queer-friendly and liberal rural area. Be your true self and nobody minds!

Why You'd Love This Area

People are down to earth, relaxed, and happy.

The local food movement here is amazing! Yum!

This is small village life at its best, yet friendly to newcomers.

Community Description

Worcester is a town of just under 1,000 people. A great little coffee shop by the post office is the community hub. People are trusting, friendly, and helpful. Ten miles away is Montpelier, the capital city of Vermont, with shops, restaurants, natural food store, movie theater, and a great public library (which also has good internet). This is a very liberal area of Vermont, full of environmental activists, homesteaders, healers, hippies, and farmers. The region is one of the few rural areas in the US that is very queer-friendly.





Farmer's Market









Public Park/Garden


Additional Info

You will be living in your own structure on a small organic farm. Four other people live on the farm. There is a small child and several dogs. We are on a steep dirt road, so the driveway can be hard to get up in the winter or the spring mud season, but its easy in summer. Again, this house is off the grid and without running water. There is a woodstove for the colder months. There is electricity available and plug-in ethernet cable internet (not wifi). This summer (June-Aug 2016) I will be in the mountains running a girls' wilderness program, so the house will be available for all of that period.
