Description from the owner
Staying in this spacious and comfortable 16 ft. Yurt on our horse farm is like camping with the luxury of a queen sized bed, camp kitchen and NO crowds. Snuggle down in the comfortable queen sized bed with down comforters and lots of pillows. Prepare simple meals on the propane burner, and use the sink with bottled water for washing up. Dishes, pots and pans provided, of course! Dine by candlelight while watching the moon rise over the marsh. Fall asleep to the sound of frog song. Mornings you can watch the abundant birdlife and have breakfast while overlooking the adjacent waterfowl refuge. Read a book in the hammock under the apple tree. J...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Fun, Unique adventure
While looking for a quick get-away with some horse riding lessons on the side, I discovered this great place and met some new friends. The yurt is what we used to call "dry camping" - no running water, electricity, or bathroom facilities. However, there is a very clean compost toilet close by that is well maintained and has a great view if you leave the door open just a little. Don’t let the term “dry camping” dissuade you. The yurt is clean, private, and very comfortable. There is a sink and water available inside. The hosts, Kate and Ken, are friendly and welcoming as is their dog, Cassie; cat, Theo; the chickens; rabbits; and mustangs. Each day Kate and I met up for private “horse / scared lady” education. I had a huge fear of horses that I wanted to master. With Kate’s gentle encouragement and her well trained horses I left with my fears relieved and excitement to continue learning all I can about Natural Horsemanship. This was an empowering four day mini-vacation in a beautiful location. Sightseeing around the island is a must, as is relaxing at the farm enjoying the quiet.
