A new beginning for the land....

We are here as caretakers of the land. What does it mean to be a land steward, a conscious caretaker?

Who we are as individuals and as a culture is at the heart of this question. The vision for Nature's Gate 

comes from deep within the heart of being One with the land and a great desire to create peace, harmony and beauty. Awakening consciousness is a large motivating factor here at Nature's Gate and our inherent nature as creative individuals fosters the mission of personal empowerment and creative endeavors.

Elandara Anderson purchased Nature's Gate in the late summer of 2015. She relocated  from Connecticut after receiving clear visions of Greenwich and the countryside. Born in Bozeman Montana, she never truly felt she was home in an urban setting. While she lived by the familiar saying "Home is where the heart is,"  Elandara feels Nature's Gate has been waiting a long time for her to be its divine land steward. She welcomes you to visit and feel the peace, beauty and sacred space that this land offers.


This stunnng 80 acre farm is a perfect place for visiting for a day, a weekend or a customized  retreat.

We welcome spiritual seekers, artists, writers, photographers and those looking for quiet and nurturing and inspiring support.

The house has ample room for small group workshops with flexible accommodations for overnight staycations.

Optional Spa Services can be arranged in advance to enrich your experience. 


Inquire as to room rates and work exchange options. The gardens and property are in the process of being re-created and  skilled / knowledgable help is welcome!
