Walking onto Shaunie and Mike Briggs’ property in Winters, California, is like falling down a rabbit hole into a whimsical slow-living paradise. After passing through a tall steel gate, you’re greeted by nodding sunflowers, sculptures made of repurposed steel, rustic outdoor dining spaces, and a few private guest cottages. Ducklings waddle from one flower bed to the next, olives dangle from trees, and shaded napping spots beckon for a lie down. Although Winters’ quirky downtown is only a mile away, you’d never know it from the sounds of birds and rustling tree leaves.

The Briggs created this restorative space — and opened its doors to the public via Airbnb rentals — to share their passion for healthy, seasonal eating and organic gardening with others. “If you bang on someone’s door and say, ‘I have something I have to tell you,’ then they’ll slam the door in your face,” Shaunie laughs. “But if you cook them good food or hand them fresh flowers or bring them a homegrown melon, then they’re like, ‘How’d you do that? I want more.’ ”
