Secluded, comfortable yurt with a warm outdoor shower and woodstove.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the yurt. Wendy greeted us as we arrived (late) and we followed her through the woods to a yurt. She had already lit th woodstove and some candles for us, so it was cozy and inviting. The directions for the outdoor shower were clear and the water was warm. What a pleasure to shower outside! We made a bonfire in the fire pit and enjoyed the clear night, darkness and stars. They offer a sweet set up with pots and pans, coffee and most of the things you need for cooking. Besides the yurt, the mini animal farm was my favorite!! Thanks so much!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin! This was such a perfect anniversary getaway!! Wendy and Ron are wonderful hosts that really go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need. They even text us mid stay to make sure we were doing well and didn't' need anything else. It was so quiet and relaxing to be in the middle of the woods and know that even if the weather did turn on us (which it didn't!) we would be fine! The outdoor shower was AMAZING! Great outdoor fire pit and indoor wood stove made the chili night air a non-factor. I really can't give enough compliments about this place. We hope to make this our anniversary destination next year as well!! Thank you again Wendy and Ron.

Amazing time at this enchanted, romantic, special and unique beautiful yurt! Nature with comfort!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we had in this cozy, enchanted Yurt! It was truly magical! My mom and I were only there one night, and it felt like home away from home already. We will DEFINITELY be back!

It was clean, warm, comfortable, and had great energy. The property was gorgeous, we took a nice long walk with our dog. It was so peaceful waking up to the sound of the leaves blowing through the trees overhead which we could see through the ceiling window. We felt so connected to Nature, which camping offers, but with the comforts of home. We cooked a sautéed veggie pasta meal on the propane stove top, had a bon fire out back, took hot showers under the open sky... It was quite the adventure. I absolutely loved staying in a yurt.

And I LOVED visiting with Wendy's mini horses, donkeys, and pig Hemmy! She let me pet them all for quite some time, what sweet animals!

Wendy was an amazing host. So friendly, accommodating, kind, she provided everything we could need and her family are good people who make you feel right at home. We had lots of privacy at our Yurt, since Wendy's home is a ways away on the property. We felt like we were in the middle of the woods all on our own, no need to worry about playing loud music in our yurt, it was the perfect escape from the world- yet Wendy was a quick drive away on the property if we needed anything. She was kind enough to keep some of our perishable food in her fridge (we brought a cooler as there is no electricity but didn't have room for everything in it).

Don't be intimidated by the outhouse, it was the cleanest, cutest outhouse ever. No smell at all.

The Yurt was so sunny by day with lots of windows, and at night Wendy provided lots of candles and we were one with the rhythm of the sun and moon. It felt primal, tribal almost, which I totally loved. My mom and I were working on a writing project and were very inspired by the space and got a lot accomplished. The pictures don't do it justice, you truly have to experience it to see how magical the energy of this place is.

I wish we had been able to book more time here, what a gem to discover! We will be repeat guests for sure! Can't wait to try it out in the winter and use the cozy wood stove! This would be a very romantic getaway for a couple as well and I've already told my boyfriend we are going here together!

This Yurt is something special. A must-have experience! I can't recommend it highly enough! Thank you Wendy for an amazing, rejuvenating time!

Lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by a very kind pasture of ponies, burros, and a pig called Hemi. Ron, our human host, appeared soon thereafter and made sure we were well settled and taken care of. He stayed with us at the yurt until we had a thorough understanding of it's workings, encouraged us to touch let us know if there was ANYthing we needed, and then he was off!

Ron and Wendy do a wonderful job of seeing to their guests every need, but included in that is allowing their privacy. The yurt was clean and well appointed, plenty of firewood (additional charge, but worth it!), and the cleanest outhouse east of the Mississippi. The only

Great retreat.

Cute and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for "camping" without the hassle of a tent! We loved grilling outside, eating on the picnic table, and relaxing by the fire pit while eating smores. Wendy and Ron were very helpful and accomodating. The outhouse is very clean and probably smells better than my bathroom at home. Will return if we ever come back to the area.

From the start, this was such a wonderful and hospitable stay. The hosts, Wendy and Ron, clearly thought of everything when putting this yurt site together. Our stay was comfortable and fun - even with our two daughters ages 7 & 9. The yurt is stocked with games, candles, firewood and a camp stove inside.

Outside is a gas grill, a very clean and non-smelly outhouse, an outdoor shower, and a very nice fire pit area. Loved the natural looking landscaping leading to the fire!

We would definitely stay again. What a great way to unplug and spend time together in a private, comfortable setting.
