Designed and built in the 1970s by renowned ecological architect and author Sim Van der Ryn and renovated in the 1990s, the Eco Refuge's 4,000-square-foot, three-story house—a traditional pole barn with attached Japanese-style pavilion—includes four suites, each with en-suite full bath, along with additional, informal sleeping areas including two sofa beds and an alcove bed. In all, the house sleeps up to 12 adults comfortably.   

The house's ground floor comprises a yoga/exercise/massage space, from there you proceed through the laundry room and come to the downstairs bedroom with queen bed and en-suite shower-only bath.  The ground floor bedroom is nice and dark and tucked away, with the feel of a library.
Also on the ground floor is the 1,000-square-foot open kitchen/den/dining area/TV nook, a room that's ideal for dinner parties and talks and gatherings, with large glass doors and windows that seamlessly merge it with a large outdoor terrace overlooking a pond, water elements, and the forest.  There is a new pullout sofa bed as well as an alcove bed in this living area, ideal for kids & young adults, with a half-bath directly adjacent.  
There is also a ground floor suite, known as The Roost, which is included with the rental.  It has a separate outside entrance, and was formerly rented separately, but is now automatically included.  The entry room has a sofa bed and is bright with a window wall looking out to the patio and chicken coop beyond.  The bedroom has a queen bed with en-suite shower-only bathroom.

The house's second floor features another living room with a work corner/desk, all of it wrapped in windows with vistas of the gardens, and a bedroom with en-suite bath (with tub) featuring a sold cedar wood sink.  The second level bedroom also features a Queen bed, from which you can look out the window, across the property to the treeline.

A spiral stair in the living room concludes at the house's third floor, the master suite, with a Cal-King bed and full bath with clawfoot tub.  Windows on all four sides of the suite look out across the gardens with hypnotizing views on all sides.  A very nice view to greet you when you awake.

Along with being Wi-Fi equipped, each room displays Van der Ryn's own paintings and other art collected over 40 years, and the house includes his personal multi-thousand-volume architecture and ecology book collection. 

Guests enjoy our deluxe amenities such as EO soaps/shampoos, Coyuchi linens, Heathware, etc...; quilts and blankets are from travels in India and Europe.
