Staying in the Sister’s Yurt is a true retreat in nature. Architecturally designed using patterns found in nature. 314 square feet, with a cozy wood-burning stove, a sturdy desk, and very simple indoor kitchen amenities with a dorm-size fridge, an induction cook-top, and very basic cooking utensils. A simple outdoor eating area, a wonderful hot shower, a sink,
and a self-composting toilet is all outdoors.
The Sister’s Yurt is located in the Village area of our magnificent forest. The Village is the place in our forest where you could find people if you prefer to know you have access to people during your retreat. It is very private, so you can choose to have a quiet, alone retreat, but you know that there are others should you choose to find them. It is also the closest to the farm, so you see the trace of the human hand, even if you never find us tending the land.
The Sister’s Yurt may be rented independently or as part of the gorgeous Forest Hideaway, the Cabaña in the Forest, or the Great Yurt for additional guests or special occasions.
The Village affords maximum flexibility, options for group events, and outdoorsy families.
The Sister's Yurt has a convenient parking space reserved at the CrossRoads, also your access to free WiFi. From your parking, you need to take your luggage a short hike down to the yurt: a beautiful 3-5 minute fun walk down. Please wear appropriate shoes.
We have 120 acres of lush forest to explore. There are beautiful natural buildings to visit, including a cob sauna built and designed by SunRay Kelley- an internationally renowned natural builder; a huge redwood-grove treehouse; and a meditation gazebo- all these treasures are open for guests to enjoy and retreat.
