                    All housing for visitors and students will be in period housing, so that you will experience all of the benefits, obligations, hardships, methods, and skills of rural living without the modern conveniences. For safety, there will be some replacements, such as using battery lights instead of kerosene or candles.

             Each house will be furnished in period furniture for a working family. You will have to carry the water for cleaning when you need it. Drinking water will be supplied by the village in bottled form, for safety.

             Some of the houses will eventually have small paddocks and sheds so that your family can experience what it was like to care for chickens, sheep, or goats. If you desire to have an enriched livestock experience, you can request this at reservation time, and every effort will be made to accommodate your request.
