The Writer’s Refuge is a place where writers and other creatives can escape the distractions of everyday life and devote themselves fully to their work. This means single occupancy and the deliberate absence of amenities such as a television and DVD player. It also means the presence of supportive technologies such as Wi-Fi and a printer.
Well-behaved small dogs are welcome on a case-by-case basis. Please write or call to get permission to bring a pet.
Cora (a Maremma livestock guardian), Jake (an English setter), Maggie (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) and chickens live on the property and can sometimes pose a challenge for visiting dogs. Jake and Maggie are fenced in an area around our home but Cora works the grounds. You will see her walking by the cabin on her security rounds. She is friendly and very sweet. If you don’t like dogs, please take into account that Cora will be roaming the property.
Emma (Maremma who is pictured above) passed last year. We also lost Lucy,our sweet English setter. They were both beloved by many guests.
