The A-Frame, Gypsy



Stay at our quaint and cozy A-frame. Gypsy exemplifies the saying that good things come in little packages. Surrounded by nature and a peaceful setting, this unique and cute little place brings mind, body, and spirit into harmony with it all. Enjoy all that nature has to offer from the comfort of a full futon that looks out through the open panel which opens up to the beauty right outside. There is a mosquito netting that you may spread across to protect you from any unwelcome visitors.  

Enjoy a wonderful fire in the fire pit next to Gypsy in the beautiful night sky. You can cook a delicious fire roasted meal and fall asleep to the lullaby of the wind, leaves, and the night time chorus. Then, be awakened to the birds singing in the early morning. We invite you to an intimate camping experience with nature, all you need is essentials and the desire to connect with this beautiful environment. 

Definitely a rare place to disconnect from the worldly concerns!

All of us at the Heart Center love to meet and share with our guests, however, we also respect your need for privacy and quiet and relaxation time. We like a happy balance!  We are here to connect with you, not just to offer you a rental.

I am a Reiki master and assist in energy restoration and healing, as well as, meditation and self exploration techniques.
