Walden Cabin

Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s legendary 1845 cabin at walden pond, this studied replica was built over a 10-month period with careful attention to detail. Featured woods were locally harvested, the nails were smithed to 1850-era specs, recycled products were used as possible, and framed quotes and historical artifacts are aplenty to help our guests step back in time. There is a single bed in the cabin and a queen-sized mattress in the garret. Firewood and kindling are provided. Books from the period are on hand. Hiking trails and pastures surround the cabin. Guests make reservations direct, or through Airbnb or Vrbo.

The Green Room

Inspired by the centuries-old tradition of naming a room for the fanciful color of green (most notably at The White House), as well as by our family’s green screen adventures in the world of film and media, The Green Room is our primary guest quarters at The Homestead. It offers its own full bath, interesting views of homestead life, a special Norman Rockwell plate collection, and a “Crack of Dawn” alarm clock from the roosters just across the way.

Semper Fi Hall

Inspired by Philadelphia’s Tun Tavern, circa 1775, the birthplace of the United States Marines Corp. Hand built from paper sketches by patriotic “Sons of Thunder” (and family friends) in honor of three USMC officers in our family, and in celebration of every Veteran of the nation’s Armed Forces. We celebrate the American spirit here– what it means for us, and for the world. Complimentary dinners have been served with love and gratitude for many vets in this hallowed Hall.

Camp Paradise

Camp Paradise is a permanent (16′ x 16′) canvas tent, set up on a timbered platform with slate floors and animal hide rugs. It is a re-imagining of an extended stay American camp in a bygone era, for “glampers” young and old alike. It is nestled into a hillside and features a glorious view from the front porch rocking chairs over a brook and on toward the Homestead’s main pastures. It offers a queen bed with a wood-burning stove, working table, lighting, and the camp artifacts of an 1800’s Italian immigrant. The outdoor firepit accommodates a variety of cooking options. The site interconnects with almost two miles of area trails, suitable for hiking or mountain biking. Guests can make reservations direct, or through AirBNB or VRBO.

Farm Activities

“Jesus said in His kingdom, the ‘smallest of all seeds’ will leave a lasting impact much larger than expected (see Matt. 13:31–32). In the same way, the ‘smallest’ things in our lives — ordinary days and meals and homes — can have a much larger impact than you’d ever imagine when harnessed with gospel intentionality.”
