Some food items may be available in kitchen, which you may help yourself to. Limited art supplies may be available in the studio, but plan to bring your own art supplies.
This historic farmhouse was built in the late 1920's and the property has cycled through being operated as a vineyard and a riding stable in the years since. We've reestablished the original strain of grapes and planted an orchard since we purchased Hawk Hill in 2010. Note that there is currently no washing machine available.
Please treat our home as you would your own home. Absolutely no smoking or illegal drug use of any kind.
After being introduced to the site through helping out with a friend's farm-stay AirBnB, I had the opportunity to be a host for a year while in the process of moving from the midwest US to the west coast. Now settled in Seattle, I'm taking some time to explore the world.
