$1 Free guest ranch, Nerd colony for young adults (ARLEE)


no private bath
private room

Hey if your looking for a place to stay FREE , and are willing to help out around the farm and house 1-3 hours a day, check us out.

IF we like you, and you put in your volunteer hours, we will let stay 20 days. Some people we ask to stay longer, our longest guest stayed 3 years. Unless your a drunk, crackhead, or an asshole, we likely wont throw you out without a few days notice.

I like to meet new people and my place is kinda a commune for nerds and travelers, and perhaps a place to relax, simply be, make friends, or find enlightenment.

We like people that can watch the farm and car lot for us while we are gone, so being unemployed or working from home is a bonus.

We have wi-fi, internet access computer, beautiful views, guest bath, laundry, and shower, community room and kitchen. We go on hikes, floats, take the boat to the lake and play role playing games like dungeons and dragons.

Sit and read a book, pick dinner from our garden, or waste time on the internet!

We are not a cult, and will not force religion on you. We believe in God, but not religion.

We mostly help young adults 18-40, and nerds and veterans and artists of any ages. Its a lot like the YMCA from the song by the village people. So we look for shiny happy people that are friendly that want to make new friends.

We welcome people regardless of race, religion, financial status, disabilities, or sexual orientation. No haters or meanies allowed, We do not accept anyone on probation or registered violent or sexual offenders.

We are Drug and Alcohol free on site (except for holidays and party's), and if you are someone who spends all their money on drugs an alcohol then wants someone else to feed them and house them because you cant be responsible for yourself, we are not the place for you. We don't mind if you drink or smoke pot elsewhere, but don't come back here all f-ed up and cause problems.

We have lots of farm work , painting, cleaning, gardening, firewood, improving guest accommodations, always something to do. We welcome people with disabilities and can find work they can do.

We have over 330 positive references from people who have stayed with us.

We are 18 miles north of missoula towards polson, 5 miles south of Arlee on highway 93 N.

Friendly dogs and Children are welcome on a leash.
