cottage 11: Tianshi

Tucked away in the northwest corner of the retreat valley, Tianshi is a bright and airy one-room cottage. It has many windows that provide ample ventilation and outstanding views of the surrounding mountains. Few cottages are in view.

A screened porch spans the northern side of the house, providing summer shade and a place to sit, enjoying the exquisite wilderness.

The kitchen is simple, with limited counter and shelving space. A composting toilet is accessible via the screened-in porch.

Although there is no shower, one is available at the community building down the hill. There is space for yoga or other movement practices.
