Paul and I visited the Hostel in the Forest located just about 1 hour outside of Savannah in Brunswick, Georgia. I had been there just about 10 years ago on another road trip and was excited to go back. It was comforting to see that not much had changed – a few new buildings, improvements to the showers, and composting toilets – but otherwise, the open and inviting community was still going strong.
These days the Hostel is a nonprofit organization run primarily by volunteers with a diverse range of workshops from time-to-time. If you’re ever in the area and you’d like to see what it’s like to sleep in a treehouse, walk a meditative labyrinth, cook and eat meals communally, swim in the warm waters of a lake, or shower outside then check it out!
