The first thing you’ll notice about the home is its innovative design, built using handcrafted materials, and with curved walls and a vaulted ceiling that give the space an open feel. In addition to its stunning architecture, the Earthen home is also completely off-grid, powered by solar panels and heated by a wood-burning stove, making it an excellent eco-friendly option for travelers who want to reduce their carbon footprint.

The home features a fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, cozy living space with comfortable seating, all warmed by a propane fireplace and pellet stove. Keep in mind that there is no AC, so it’s advised to pack warm layers and make use of the fans provided. The house is also dog friendly, but be aware — there are several plants throughout the home, which may not be safe for dogs to ingest.

While you’re in the Black Forest, make sure to take advantage of the extensive hiking trails, from easy half-day hikes to challenging all-day treks. Bird watchers will also find plenty to appreciate in the forest, with species like bald eagle, screech owl, and wild turkey making appearances depending on the season.
