Nine Mile Farms outreach presents this dreamy take on off grid glamping. Located on Marrowstone Island make it base camp for exploring Port Townsend, the Olympic mountains & peninsula, hang on the Island's many beaches and parks enjoy sunnier skies thanks to the infamous "banana belt".Unplug in the truest sense of the word with no electricity or running water. The property is situated at the end of a road on an intentionally underdeveloped short plat. The land is ungroomed, raw, natural, quiet.
The "tent" is a simple wall tent with waterproof canvas tarp style walls and zip entry void of locks. repurposed pallet board crates make up the wood flooring. A king size bed (fully bug netted, made up European style-no top sheet, 100% cotton bedding topped with a lofty down comforter), night tables, dresser and two sitting chairs are some of the furnishings. Lighting is provided via remote controlled battery powered puck lights , bring head lamps or flashlights to supplement. If there are three in your party a hotel style "rollaway" bed can be made up complete with down bedding.
Follow the trail behind the tent under a cedar tree canopy to the bucket style composting toilet. Roast s'mores on your private brick patio in the fire ring or have a bonfire at the fire pit located in the field. Firewood is provided, burn ban permitting. Please note there is no running water anywhere on the premises.
Walk the path up a gentle slope and climb 5 stairs to the kitchen cabin, a small rustic structure provided for preparing meals, dining and lounging. The camp kitchen is equipped with a single burner cook stove, a sink with a gravity fed style (no hot water and nondrinking) faucet, dish soap, ample space for cutting, preparing and eating. Also provided; dishes, utensils, French press, skillets, sauce pans, bowls, mugs, cups etc. As well as common herbs spices salt pepper, coffee, tea, sugar. Like the sleeping tent the tiny house is off grid too, lit by wall mounted battery powered light switches. We recommend all eating to be done in the dining cabin to discourage critters from sleeping quarters.
There is no heat so pack accordingly as evenings can get chilly even inside shelters. Meditate, do yoga, read a book, write a book!, knit, or sit back and enjoy a beer if that is what you wish.

The property is drive up access & the road is well maintained until the last turn where it does narrow. Expect some pot holes, rogue weeds and sticks, however you should not need 4 wheel drive to access. You can park right in front of the sleeping tent, walk a few feet to the patio & inside. You can drive up to the kitchen cabin path as well, a wagon is provided to hall heavy coolers and cooking gear to the base of the stairs (about 5 yds distance). There are no stair railings and the ground is not always level so please exercise caution.
A couple solar lights illuminate the paths in the evening, but coverage is limited and a flashlight is advised. Arriving with some daylight is also encouraged as to familiarize yourself with the layout. Use of dining cabin, deck, hammocks, trails, paths, outdoor patio, BBQ pit, bonfire area, sleeping tent, outhouse and road are included with this listing. Garbage and recycle bins are provided, please clean up after yourself and leave the space as you found it.
The entire property is use at you and any of your guests own risk, one of our only requests as landlord is we do ask that you sign a waiver/release acknowledging this.

We are happy to greet you upon arrival and give you a small tour to familiarize yourself with the alternative off grid systems, and layout. If this is something you would like please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. We do not reside on the property and emphasize that the property is wholly yours to enjoy and share by yourselves and in the interest of full disclosure an occasional owl, deer, forest mouse, mosquito, bee, spider, snail, bat or slug will undoubtedly make an appearance.

Nine Mile Farms glamping tent experience is not for everyone if you are uneasy without your wifi, lights, running water or really any modern day conveniences (there is okay cell phone reception), or on the contrary if bugs make you twitch or the quiet makes you nervous this may not be your cup of tea. Be honest with yourself, does this listing sound intriguing or terrifying? if the latter please rethink before booking.
Please understand that the camp is a work in progress, undergoing constant improvements & various projects may be underway during your visit. We try to keep it tidy but realistically that just isn't always possible.
What we truly hope, what our vision from the beginning has been is that all our guests enjoy a unique, peaceful, handcrafted experience that brings each individual that much closer to our planet, respecting her maybe just a little bit more. Nine Mile Farms hopes to provide you with a moment or more of tranquility and a fulfilling escape from society. Feel free to hug the trees.
