Cozy Yurt Getaway

Our cozy yurt is located within minutes of amazing hiking, biking, breweries and much more! Relax in our wood-fired sauna, sit around the campfire while listening to our resident owls, or stare up at the stars through the dome.

The space
Our yurt has a loft where you can climb the ladder to a full-sized bed. Or you can sleep on the full-sized futon on the main floor. We closed in half of the area under the loft for the bathroom, including a composting toilet (don’t worry it contains a fan to eliminate odors) and shower. Please note there is a folding privacy screen but no door to the bathroom. The yurt has a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, oven, stove, and sink. In colder weather the space is heated with a Rinai propane heater.

Guest access
Wood-fired sauna (Available if we're around during your stay. Please let us know if you're interested when you book.)
Tent platform for meditation

Interaction with guests
The yurt is right next to our house so we’re available to answer questions in person or by phone if we’re not at home.

Other things to note
Did I mention that our property abuts the 4,000 acre Bristol Cliffs Wilderness Area? Notch Brook and the New Haven River, which are just down the road from us, provide ample fishing and swimming opportunities.

Are you interested in sampling Vermont’s famous brews, wines and spirits? We’re 5 minutes from the Bobcat Cafe and 15 minutes from Middlebury where you’ll find Otter Creek Brewery, Lincoln Peak Vineyard and other breweries and distilleries.

Are you curious about how maple syrup is made? We’d be happy to give you a tour of our 750 tap sugaring operation and samples of our syrup, candy and other maple confections.
