What's the Place like?

ice skating on sunward's frozen pond in Winter The land is 20 acres and includes woods, ponds, native prairie, and housing and play areas. 3/4 of our land is preserved in natural and green state. The ponds sometimes freeze hard enough for hockey, and the prairie in bloom is spectacular!

Each house has a porch and its kitchen faces common areas to facilitate visiting. Homes were designed to be energy efficient and clustered to preserve greenspace.

Community Quoteables “Living with people is difficult and fascinating and handy and infuriating and exciting and fun and taxing and enriching and ultimately, for many, generates more happiness than the alternative.” -Joshuah Stolaroff
