My time at the guest house was fulfilling! I was opened up to new foods and great conversations with people whom I share interests with. During my down time I read or explored various local spots. Working hours are flexible and most of the work consists of keeping the house clean and managed. Susan has a wealth of knowledge about sustainability, psychology, and cooking. The household has different characters who equally bring personality. I hope to come back in the future for more :D

Nestled amidst the serene landscapes of Poughkeepsie, the guest house stands as a tranquil haven for the self-driven souls seeking a unique retreat. However, before embarking on your journey to this picturesque sanctuary, be prepared to embrace solitude and self-reliance, for this oasis caters to those who are willing to chart their own course. Transportation to the guest house proves to be a tale of independence from the very start. With no public transit in sight, the only companions on your journey will be UBER or Lyft.

It was an amazing experience. I found a safe place where people are good, willing to learn and improve the quality of life in the community. I liked the neighborhood and I enjoyed exploring the nature of the surrounding area. This trip has changed my life in a positive way and I wish the best to the people who will help grow this place in the future.

The house is an airBnB op a small road in a foresty area of poughkeepsie. Its very pretty but not greatly lit. Susan gives you the change to develop or do something with your own skills. Theres usually food in the house and you share a space for sleeping but have things between for privacy. Since this is an airBnB there are some housekeeping tasks to do which i probably read over so it took me by surprise the first day. But the people are really kind and interesting and its a nice location to get peace of mind. So it was a good time
