Add Your Comment on Cerro Gordo Community
We are an intentional community going through a transition. We're not set up to take overnight visitors or temporary people at this point; for seriously interested and like-minded persons, we do have some houses & duplexes possibly for sale.
Our houses are clustered into two neighborhoods, surrounded by shared forests and meadows, with many seasonal streams. We are founded on ecological values, including organic land care & gardening. We practice sustainable forestry on 1100+ acres. We have shared water and septic systems, and share maintenance of the roads. Please note: due to state/county zoning, dogs cannot live here.
If you have contacted us prior to April 2013 and not received a response, please feel free to contact us again, as we have lost access to all messages and contact info from before that time. Thanks! Phone contact and email contact are to two different people here.
Status: In transition; re-thinking some things.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
Former/Other Names: Cerro Gordo Ecovillage

No Answer Regarding Visitors
Visitor Process: If you're interested in renting a house/duplex for at least a year, or interested in going ahead and buying a house here, please contact us. Otherwise, we're not set up for hosting people temporarily at this point, as we don't have a guest house yet, and are going through a major transition as a community.
