The Gell House

To ensure the safety and health of our guests and staff, Gell  House will be closed to the public for the summer-fall 2020 season.  

Overnight guests will stay in the Gell House, a completely furnished hillside house surrounded by a landscaped yard and acres of woodlands.

This charming space has two furnished suites each consisting of a bedroom, sitting room/workspace, and bathroom. The suites share the common space of a dining room and fully equipped kitchen. Several large windows overlook the yard, which slopes down to a brook and valley beyond.

This quiet retreat is the perfect setting for study, writing, reading, discussion, and reflection.

    I wanted to let you know I had a great stay at the Gell House. I got about 3 times as much done as I had planned. Really productive time. -Larry Kelts, Writer-in-Residence | June 2017
