Our site offers pastoral views and hikes in the forest on our 70 acres near the Shenandoah Valley. You’ll be learning about this straw-bale constructed eco-centric home. Our free range hens provide fresh eggs for your optional $9 full breakfast. Our home is good for couples and solo adventurers!

Your hosts , Mary and David enjoyed helping make your reunion a pleasant one. The netting that hangs from the ceiling circles the bed to keep any ladybug away - they are harmless but pesky and attracted to the warm light this time of year. Thanks for the feedback.

The economy strawbale house is a gem situated in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. Great location, friendly host, and a beautiful eclectic home! We'll be back!

Response from Mary:
"economy strawbale" is a misinterpretation of our title. "Eco" was to mean ecological. That means our Strawbale home is uniquely built to save energy. We do hope you'll come back to hike our Forest and spend more time learning about the ecological features of the house like the solar panels, greenhouse and geo-thermal heat.
