At nOMad, we love the cozy cabins and the magical land  but mainly we can't get enough of Snug Hollow because of the people and their vision.

Meet Ryan and Will, the new owners of Snug Hollow, a renowned B&B, which was previous owned by chef and author of Hot Food & Warm Memories, Barbara Napier. Ryan and Will are taking Snug Hollow to greater heights with their vision of offering unforgettable retreats and giving back to their community and the land.

We LOVE how they bring all of their previous professional and personal experiences to Snug Hollow not only by offering amazing hospitality, but their experiences in the non-profit sector by developing a non-profit that benefits local community members who are in recovery to give them work and a purpose to be part of the Snug Hollow community to grow together.

Their deep love and honor of the Shaawana/Shawnee people (the ancient protectors of the land) and the teaching of Don Migel Ruiz have also played very important roles in the experience they create for their guests. Get ready to be immersed in the powerful vortexes/portals on the property that will take you to new realms on the land and within your soul.

What People Are Saying About Snug Hollow

The nOMad Collective

I am afraid any words we have don't quite do this place justice. I do know however, that if this were the only place we only visited from this point forward, that would be fine with me. Simply amazing and exactly what the soul needs.

The nOMad Collective

Snug Hollow is a magical place that I have returned to many times for the past 10 years! It is peaceful for your soul, yet stimulating to your senses and satisfies your taste buds! Details like fresh flowers and plants throughout, books and hand made pottery.
There are trails to hike, wildflowers to admire and of course wild life.
I promise that once you go, you will return!

Spend a night or two (or more) here, and you will leave rested and restored.This hidden gem is a delightful retreat from the pressures and noise of modern life.
