We will not be hosting artist residents through the Winter but will begin again starting April of 2021.



​Our residency programs offers artists an inspiring place to focus on their craft while being in nature and amidst other creative spirits.  Each artist gets a private space, either a cabin or the spacious barn studio, and can use all of the facilities down at the musical commons house, as well explore the 67 acres.  The cost is just 150$ per week per solo artist, or 200$ for a couple.
