Long Term Student Extended Stay

Long term students will stay in a delightful rustic "A" frame wood cabin which is in a beautiful forested area a five minute walk down the side of the mountain. We call it Inca Village because the last people that lived there were the Incas. There is a dry composting toilet nearby.

There is a kitchen in the Inca Village so that you can prepare tea or coffee for yourself and make your breakfast and dinner with food that we provide for you. Lunch, prepared by our master chef in residence, is social time at the Center.
