What does off-grid mean?

It means that we are completely disconnected from the municipal electricity grid. We generate all our own electricity by way of sunlight. It's the most sustainable way to live, but it also means that no heat-producing appliances can be used on the premises. There is however, a back up generator that can assist with cloudy days.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes! Dragonwood is like a big playpen for dogs—we even have lamp posts with cleanup bags available around the property for your convenience.

However, we would ask that you leash your dog, if there is any question of the dog running off. We are surrounded by miles of woods and water that your dog can get lost in; please use a leash if your puppy is inclined to wander.

If your dog may go into heat while staying with us, please use a leash and diapers as we cannot be responsible for your dog running off the property or another dog searching for your dog.

Is it private?

Privacy is one of our top concerns at Dragonwood. The Main house and Bunk house share 18 acres of the outdoors.  You will feel completely private while on the property, when you book both buildings. Staff will only arrive at predetermined times, but feel free to call us if you need anything. Staff is 5 minutes away and can arrange whatever you need.

Note: During the summer and fall the crew will be working in the orchard but their day is 8:30 - 3:30 and they will not interfere with your activities or go near the compound.
