Accommodation description

Eco Policies
Certified by Travel Green Wisconsin!

Energy - Artha B & B is powered by solar! A solar thermal system heats the domestic water as well as contributing to space heating during the winter. The heat from the sun is transferred through a solar fluid into a two foot sand bed under a portion of the B&B and this stores and heats the facility. As a back up heat source there are radiant wall panels and a high efficiency wood stove in the living room. Photovoltaic (solar electric) panels make the electricity in a grid tied system. Artha uses as little energy as possible, and much of the energy it does use is renewable!
Eco-Design – Artha has utilized green building materials in all updates and new construction. Straw bale construction was used, which is a renewable resource and super insulator. This means less energy is needed to heat and cool the space. The wood used came from trees that fell during a windstorm here at Artha, or the Menomonee Forest: a local, sustainable forest. All buildings take advantage of passive solar for heating and cooling.
Conservation – Artha does its best to have the least impact on this earth. We water our large organic gardens only when necessary and we use drip irrigation systems and mulch. We compost all food scraps and use this as fertilizer. We utilize crop rotation to preserve the soil and we harvest sap from our sugar maples for maple syrup. We have walking and cross-country ski trails so people can experience the wilderness without directly impacting it. We use sustainable forestry practices and have planted over 5,000 trees in the past 35 years.
Ecological Sustainability – Towels and sheets at this eco-friendly B&B are made from organic cotton and all non-VOC paint has been used throughout the home. To conserve water the bathrooms are equipped with low-flow toilets and showerheads.
At Artha we try and live by example, teaching those who wish to learn from us. Our goal is to leave the planet as we found it for the next generation and we invite everyone to join us on this path.
