Tucked away deep in the woods at the southern edge of the Tug Hill region of New York. Dragonwood is our off-grid sanctuary. Six acres of pond and gardens bordered by forest on three sides.
The project began in 1995, when after a long search, Debe and I purchased the property from a local logger. To date we have built a cabin, a bridge, out house, two sheds in addition to expansive gardens and stone work. We have a generator, propane lights, refrigerator and grill, a wood stove and modest solar system. A dug well and small stream suitable for watering gardens and other needs and a nearby spring for drinking water.
The Dragonwood Chronicles will serve to document the project with photographs and notes. Future projects will include additions to the cabin, a root cellar and a studio building.
Comments and questions are always welcome.
We enjoy hearing from people who visit Dragonwood Chronicles. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask questions.

Deb and I are both artists, so essentially Dragonwood serves as our retreat. A getaway if you will. We have been getting a lot of e-mail asking questions about the place, to include the availability of it as a rental. At this time Dragonwood is for our personal use only, however we may consider short term rentals in the future. Ideally we would like to have something similar in Nova Scotia that would be a rental. A place we could vacation/work that would also be available for other artists to rent.
