Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s legendary 1845 cabin at Walden Pond, this studied replica was built over a one-year 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 main room and a queen-sized mattress in the garret, and the fireplace and wood burning stove and candle light make it a specially magical place in these cold months of the year.
Visitors come each week from (literally) all around the world. During the past month, we’ve hosted guests from Germany, Singapore, Paris, London, Richmond, Chicago, Atlanta, and all parts of the Carolinas. What a privilege (and ministry opportunity) it has been for us! In addition to these kinds of bookings through AirBNB and VRBO, we host people each month who are invited guests, arriving here to pray, to read, to write, and to rest.
