“awesome geodesic domes & 9 tree houses!”
The Hostel in the Forest has operated as an International Youth Hostel for 35 years. We are world renowned for our geodesic domes and 9 tree houses, which were built and have been sustained entirely by volunteers. Hundreds of loving hands have gone into making the Hostel what it is today, a fact that is evident as soon as one steps on the property.The Hostel sits on 133 acres of forest and wetlands, 2 miles from H.W.95 in Brunswick, Georgia. It is located short distances from the famous “Golden Isles” of St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. There are also many prisitne coastal barrier islands including the famous Cumberland National Seashore close by.The area is unique in every way, with lush, dense sub-tropical forests containing palms, saw palmettos, magnolia, cedar, holly, pine, and myrtle. Huge live oaks draped with moss contrast with the broadleaf evergreens that are the dominant trees of the forest. Well over three hundred species of birds visit this coastal region annually and dozens of species of reptile and amphibian make this their home. Contrasting the forests and the coastal savannahs are the wetlands and swamps where alligators, river otters and wading birds are prolific.
Today, January 8th 2015, i startet organizing my thousands of Pictures and slides from my various trips to the US.
I found a picture of the HOSTEL IN THE FORREST where i stayed in Oktober 1977!
In the Mainhouse they played music from Fleetwood Mac's Album RUMORS the whole Day and i prepared a Swiss Meal for everybody. We / I had a great time even if there was a 6 foot rattlesnake one day on the road from the mainroad to the hostel. I stayed in my car for 1 hour untill she movedaway!

The Hostel has a very special place in my heart. It's definitely a place of acceptance, love, and shared wonder at the beauty of nature. Everyone is so welcoming. It is a calm, relaxing escape from society.
