ACCOMMODATION

Celesterra
$145 per night

Celesterra is a spiritual retreat treehouse for 1 to 2 people seeking deep rest and contemplation, healing from grief, desiring new direction in life, holding a vision they wish to express, etc.,

 

Situated between 3 tulip poplars, it floats between earth and sky about 15 feet off of the ground. Built by the wonderful crew of the television show Treehouse Masters, it is a beautiful, serene sacred space that is cozy, warm and inviting. At about 300 square feet, it features a beautiful living area with wood stove and leather club chairs, a dining table, fully stocked kitchenette and a bathroom with a compost toilet.

 

It has no running water, but glorious spring water is supplied for drinking, washing dishes and cleaning hands. A beautiful shower is available in the main house (about a two minute walk). It also features a large front deck with fabulous views of the mountains.

 

The bedroom is located in a loft above the kitchen area. It is accessed by a 9-foot ladder. If you have physical limitations, that might prove difficult for you, please let us know. We have included a couple of photos in the slideshow to the right.

 

This is a wonderfully quiet space that enhances your meditations, reflections and relaxation. There is an interview process and only serious intentions to do deep personal work will be considered. To apply, click on the reserve button to the right or send us a message.

 

We look forward to hosting your retreat soon!

"When I imagined how I wanted to spend the turning of the new year, what came to me was this: I want to wake up alone. Preferably in a treehouse. Stumbling upon Celesterra was such a stroke of luck—or destiny! The cabin was the perfect place for me to reflect, write, and dream for the year ahead. The interior is cozy and has everything I needed to nourish myself and experience real solitude.
 
Daily rituals like carrying water from the spring and building an evening fire were grounding and comforting. And, for an every-now-and-then phone check and piping-hot daily shower, the access to the facilities in the main house was wonderful. Wandering the surrounding woodlands offered a sense of expansion and exploration, too.
 
Charles and Stella are full of joy and love; they are caretakers in the truest sense, and genuinely want their guests to flourish in their space and beyond. I can't recommend Celesterra enough, and I can't wait to return."
