FAQ & Mindfulness Guidelines
As a mindful community space we ask that during your stay at 13 Acres Retreat, the following guidelines are observed in order to authentically connect with nature, oneself and the other guests:
Noble Silence 10 PM to 7 AM (quiet conversations to allow others to enjoy the surroundings)
Keep our land natural and trash-free (this means no smoking or littering).
Leave the space as you found it including outdoor furniture and cabins.
Guests come from around the world to visit this space. Let's all welcome each other by showing courtesy in shared spaces and kindness along the paths.
Remove muddy shoes before entering the cabins.
*We reserve the right to escort guests from the property who are not observing mindful silence, under the influence or unable to follow guidelines at any time without refund.

Are children and pets allowed at 13 Acres?
|| Yes, we welcome leashed and friendly pets. The fee is $15/stay for up to 2 pets and must be paid prior to your arrival. More than 2 pets? No problem; just pay a 2nd pet fee!
|| We also welcome families with children. We are passionate about raising up mindful youth so we do ask that you discuss with them the noble silence, guidelines listed above so they have an opportunity to learn and participate in those and know the reasoning behind them.

|| Cabins are usually able to be cooled/heated up to 20 degrees from outside temperatures but the rustic nature of the cabins means that if you need more warmth or coolness you may want to pack a fan or heating blanket depending on weather. Do not leave heating devices unattended in cabins.
