This listing is not for everyone, but perfect for some, please read the details about the space before booking. This listing is all about the site and the view, not the bus. The bus is old, the door doesn't fully close, theres no electric/ac, just a table, desk and a mattress. It's really just there for added privacy/shelter. Its private, there's a fire-pit and a picnic table. You can use the bathroom/shower/wifi after a short walk down to the main house here at the music/arts retreat.

What can I say? Other than that Jared's retreat is the perfect place for a secluded, reflective, and fun experience around the beautiful Black Mountain range. And the view is something else to experience on own! Jared is honest when he describes the condition of the bus, but if…

I see you left a 1 star cleanliness, even after how clearly described the space. That is very rude of you, please never come back here.
