In Our Words: 

We enjoy a beautiful lake front vista, often taking meals on one of our three lake-facing porches or on our pier.
We are a great place for families. KIDS 12 and under eat free. We have a large indoor playroom and an outdoor swing set.
We emphasize a socially conscious kitchen, mostly organic and local when possible.
Call us or come by to find out more about our delicious vegetarian or vegan, sometimes omnivorous, meals! Yum.
Full food co-opers pay $110/ month and get a key to the house. Food co-opers enjoy all of the food privileges of a full membership; they eat at every house meal and help themselves in the kitchen whenever they like. Half co-opers pay $55/month and can eat at every house meal.
About Ambrosia: We are a group of about 30 adults and children, living The Life together in this beautiful house. Not only do we immensely enjoy our lakefrontedness (swimming, canoeing, having bonfires on shore, eating on the pier, etc.), but we often enjoy one another’s company in our spacious and colorful kitchen as well.
