The “Cordstead” boasts 4 round cordwood buildings. The thought herein, is to give you a “cordwood living” experience to see if a cordwood home is your cup of tea. Sandy and Angelika are fine hosts. https://thecordstead.blogspot.com/

The Gathering Place on Golden Ponds is in Coe Hill, Ontario and just so you are forewarned, many people who have stayed here, have gone on to build their own cordwood home. http://www.gatheringbb.com/

The Cordwood Education Center at the Merrill School Forest in Merrill, Wisconsin USA is also for rent. You can contact the Merrill School District for more information at http://www.maps.k12.wi.us/pages/Merrill_Area
If your goal is to find out if cordwood living is for you, take the time to visit and check out some of these places. With a rental you can poke around and enjoy your stay rather than imposing on someone to open their cordwood home at your convenience.
