Springdale Inn

We are doing our part to restore and protect our precious native habitat. In May of 2012, we seeded 54 acres with native prairie species. This restored prairie will provide habitat for a diverse community of mammals, and for threatened and endangered grassland birds and butterflies. The colors, scents, sights and sounds of the prairie will provide you, our guest, with the opportunity to get up close and personal with the natural world, and to be infused with the joys that only nature can provide. As Emerson said, "The earth laughs in flowers."

Springdale Inn is super-insulated, and passive solar by design. Our windows are glazed for maximum energy efficiency, and our south-facing windows are specially glazed to allow the rays of the winter sun to enter and warm our living spaces. Our floor to ceiling stone chimney, and tile floors in our two sunrooms provide not only architectural beauty, but also thermal mass to boost the natural heating and cooling capacity of our B&B.

Our Sunpower Photovoltaic System has reduced our carbon footprint by more than 20,000 lbs since October of 2011. The southern side of our environmentally-friendly metal roof is home to our 22 REC 230watt photovoltaic system, provided by the wonderful folks at Full Spectrum Solar in Madison. Our system produces about 6,279 kWh of electricity every year. On many sunny days, our system generates more electricity than we can use. This excess energy is sold back to our local power company, thus reducing fossil fuel consumption and pollution. In the month of April, 2012, our electric bill was $1.50, which included electricity for our 600 sq. ft. alpaca barn.

Green Learning Opportunities: We offer classes and workshops on green and sustainable living, including mushroom growing, permaculture practices, wild food gathering and preparation, building with local dry stack stone, and organic gardening. We are also offering art workshops, including drawing and watercolor painting.
