Thanksgiving House

Deep in the Waterfall Canyon


The Thanksgiving House was the original structure at Elohee. With six bedrooms and four bathrooms, it sleeps up to thirteen people. It offers two community rooms with fireplaces, a kitchen and dining room, as well as a meditation/yoga room.  The outdoor patio has its own fireplace and overlooks a 100 foot waterfall and small pool.

The Thanksgiving House is nestled in a Rich Cove Forest niche which supports a wide range of trees and plants.  Red maple, oak, basswood, and poplar are only a few of the types of trees growing here. Spring wildflowers and medicinal herbs flourish here. Mosses and rotting logs make the damp forest floor suitable for a wide variety of salamanders and one of the most diverse ecosystems found outside the tropics.
