The visionary Inn Serendipity Bed and Breakfast in Browntown, Wisconsin

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

Living and thriving in an eco-friendly, sustainable manner requires a great deal of innovation, creativity, and courage in the modern, industrial world. Two people that embody this way of thinking are the owners of the Inn Serendipity Bed and Breakfast in Browntown, Wisconsin. Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko don’t just talk the talk about eco-living. They also walk the walk and it doesn’t look like their shoes will be wearing down any time soon.

They are strong proponents of including the role that nature plays when doing business (and have written books about the subject) and thus refer to themselves as “ecopreneurs” and “bioneers”. Perhaps the best (and certainly the most comfortable) way to learn more about their ideas and strategies for living and working in such an eco-conscious manner is to stay at their bed and breakfast.

The place may look like other small, quaint, country inns but beneath the surface, this is one seriously green endeavor. Everything in the hotel is powered by renewable energy sources, the food is vegetarian and mostly comes from their organic garden, and they are always coming up with new, green ideas to improve their inn.

One of their latest projects has been changing an old granary into “an active solar heated straw bale greenhouse”. The hoped for end result of this project probably has such a long descriptive name because it’s the first of its kind. They hope to use it so they and guests of the Serendipity Inn can enjoy tropical fruits like papayas and carambola as winter snows blankets the surrounding countryside.

Even if one doesn’t stay at the inn, it sounds like it would still be a worthwhile destination to see what will hopefully be the wave of the future in action. The inn is described as a “demo home” for sustainable living so the owners would probably be willing to show visitors how they converted an old farm house into a carbon neutral dwelling.

The Hen House B & B in Helston, Cornwall

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

henhouse I love this already! Is it because of the location on the Lizard Peninsula? Perhaps. Many acres of the peninsula are owned and maintained by The National Trust and English Nature.

The Hen House is located only one mile from the magnificently beautiful coast. You’ve already guessed from its name this retreat has been lovingly restored from its former life. Attention to detail on all levels pertaining to sustainability have been rigorously adhered to, however, comfort and convenience have not suffered in the least. This couple literally bring you the best in our greatgreentravel world.

King size beds, in room TV & WI-FI. Fresh organic foods are served for your breakfast.

Lots to do on the peninsula, and your hosts are happy to acquaint you with the local culture. Should you need added relaxation, Reiki, and t’ai chi are available.
