Our yurts offer an open and airy "glamping" experience for two. The yurt is a tent-like structure with canvas walls to let the sounds of the forest in, but with a luxurious interior featuring a King bed, enclosed shower-only bathroom, and sleek furnishings in a spacious 30' diameter footprint. They are comfortable year round with gas-log fireplace and radiant floor heat; French doors lead out to a private deck. For the traditionalists, our rustic luxury cabins are an escape to the woods. Each has a Queen or King bed in the spacious loft bedroom, private bath with soaking tub, breakfast nook with gas-log fireplace, and shaded front porch. The cabins provide a cozy retreat ideal for two, but will hold up to 4 adults with a sleeper sofa in the living area. Each room is equipped with coffee and tea, and fresh juice and muffins are delivered to the front porch in the morning. Some rooms offer air-conditioning, none offer wi-fi or televisions.
