After a hike in the nearby mountains, a stroll up Cow Creek, Salmon or Steelhead fishing, or a raft or kayak trip down the Salmon River, you might want to return to the wagon to freshen up. A pitcher of water and guest soaps are provided. There are also large fluffy bath sheets provided, for trips to the Mavens’ Haven swimming hole or the sauna. If you would like to sauna, let one of the apprentices know two hours ahead of time so that they can have it fired up and hot! The sauna and river access is located at the Haven, a half block from the rental.
Or perhaps you would prefer starting a little warming fire in the stove (small is the word here, as it takes very little to make the Wagon toasty warm). Perk a freshly ground pot of coffee or brew a cup of tea.
Near your wagon there is a koi pond and a couple of quiet charming sitting places.
Mavens' Haven has a full kitchen for guests who wish to cook meals. The apprentices use the kitchen, as well, so please clean up afterwards. No one lives in the main building, it is a communal space and guests are welcome to make use of it. There are great spaces for reading and relaxing, there.
The orchard and gardens produce fresh vegetables most of the year. Guests are encouraged to help themselves when preparing meals ~ there are always fresh eggs in the refrigerator for your use.
On weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 5:00 MST) the Trading Post is open. It is the perfect place to shop for gifts, herbals and homemade pickles and jams ~ or just to relax on the deck and visit with the locals over a game of checkers.
Guests will have access to the gardens, the main Mavens' Haven house with kitchen, library and shower privileges. There is also a game room for cards and board games, as well as a downstairs movie area. WIFI is also available. There is no cell phone reception at the Haven or Lucile area.
Interaction with Guests
There are resident apprentices working the gardens and green houses, tending the chickens, bee hives and the main house. They are energetic and friendly.
The community is small. There is a Trading Post open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 - 5:00 MST, and a tiny post office.
The nearest store is Fiddle Creek, three miles south. The town of Riggins, which has restaurants and a grocery store is seven miles from the Haven.
Other Things to Note
The Riggins area claims itself as the "whitewater capital of the world". There are float trips daily throughout the summer offered through a wide variety of outfitters.
In the compact space, the table slides out from beneath the bed. The perfect venue for early morning coffee (coffee beans and a hand grinder are provided) or tea (Lemon Balm Tea provided), a light lunch or an evening game of cribbage.
Near your wagon there is a small outdoor fireplace, a hammock and a table chair set on the patio, as well as an outhouse with a "lovable loo" composting toilet and hand washing station. The Mountain View Cottage, which sleeps three, is nearby, making it perfect for a retreat for a family. A complimentary pickleball court, balls and paddles are a few feet from the cottage.
